I thought long and hard about paying almost £30 for a kitchen scale. However, I live in a studio apartment and therefore are always searching for ways to save space. Basic (cheap) kitchen scales can be a bit bulky so, having previous experience with Joseph Joseph quality and functionality, I decided to go for it. I did not regret it. The scale takes less space than my Samsung Galaxy smart phone and is cool-looking to boot. The scale is so easy to use although it never hurts to browse through the manual. The touch screen is very sensitive so the slightest touch is enough. Finally, the accuracy, which should be the most important thing, seems excellent. Overall, I recommend the Tri Scale -- even for larger kitchens as saving space never hurts.
