I am the proud owner of three different kitchen scales. Okay, why do I need three? The Salter scale is an “antique” and I have had this one a long time. It is so attractive that it sits out on my counter and I use it when I don’t need precise weights.
The Soehnle Scale is easy to store (flat), easy to use and easy to clean. It can weigh up to 33 pounds, is accurate, good for large bowls and has a long shut-off time. It also measures in grams or ounces and accurately within 1 ounce. It is made of glass and plastic. I use this one a lot when weight is important in a recipe such as bread making.
EatSmart Precision Elite Kitchen Scale is used for obvious reasons. I don’t use this professional scale too much any more as I have a pretty good idea of how much things weigh. After all I am a Lifetime Member of Weight Watcher’s even though I have added some pounds back to that milestone I once reached. It comes with a great EatSmart Calorie Factor Guide and does have a tare feature. It also has a large lighted display with a stainless steel platform.
