I was delighted to be sent these kitchen scales to review as my old scales are no longer working and because I cook a lot of meals from fresh ingredients, scales are vital to my kitchen. The first thing that struck me was how well packed and protected they were. They were easily removed from the simple but well-designed box. I was really glad to see that the key functions are outlined on the box itself and that the scales have a 3 year warranty (at the time of writing in 2015, now comes with a one year warranty). Before using the scales I read the instruction booklet thoroughly.
The cell battery was already fitted, so I just had to remove the tape from the battery compartment. The scales are lovely and sleek and have a large digital display. The base is white and the top silver (other styles and colours are also available). One function I absolutely love is the automatic shut off. The tare function is great as I can pop a mixing bowl on and then use the tare function to reset the digital display to zero before putting in the ingredient I want to weigh. I can then press tare again before adding another ingredient.
These scales look smart in my kitchen and do not take up much room either. They are so easy to use, the graduations are just 1g, so it’s very precise and it’s great that you can measure the weight of liquids like milk and water in Fl. Oz too. The 5kg max capacity is generous too.
A must for any kitchen!
