For many years we've used a lovely pair of traditional "Queen" scales, with weights, in our cottage kitchen. I favoured this type as they can't go out of adjustment, as spring scales can, and of course they look good. However, recently, we've been dieting and needing to weight small quantities like 1oz of cheese, or 5g of butter, and for this kind of thing our scales were not ideal- fiddling around with some of the smallest weights, having to wash up the scale pan after weighing something small, etc..

These digital scales are ideal. Just put the plate or dish on the scales, press the left button to zero, then add the item directly to the dish until the desired weight shows. Switching between metric and imperial is just a few presses of the other button, so it's all incredibly easy and fast with nothing to wash up at the end.

So why didn't I give five stars?

1. For what looks and operates like a high-tech gadget, it feels rather cheaply made with rattly buttons and what feels like low quality plastic everywhere except the round platform area. They are inexpensive, it's true, but that's no excuse - if they were made in Japan they'd feel as good as they look and still not be expensive.

2. The right hand button, which switched between units, would be more convenient if it only switched between grams and pounds/ounces. Instead it goes through four options - two of which are completely pointless. These other two are millilitres and fluid-ounces. However, these are actually measures of volume, not weight, so don't really belong on scales. They're pointless because they assume (it explains in the instructions) that the density of the liquid being measured is the same as water.

1.0 out of 5 stars 2nd one broken after a short amount of time 14 Feb 2012
By LouB
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I'm on my second Salter weighing scale and both of them packed up in less than a year. It began by not being able to re-set to zero and now it will not turn at all despite new batteries. I'm giving up, and not replacing it instead I'll look for a different brand.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice, while it lasts. But it will die on you. 18 Feb 2013
Colour Name:Black
I've just purchased my third one of these. For a year or so, they're great, then they either start to go mad, or stop working completely (not the battery). I use mine nearly every day and while it's still working, it's fantastic.

It's great that they measure to 1g and that they can weigh up to 5KG, but I do have to wonder if I should find a different brand to trust. Sadly, the shops seem riddled only with this brand.

All very well that they have a 15 year guarantee, but you really have to jump through some hoops to get anything done about changing one. In the end, it's usually quicker and easier just to buy a new one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, easy to use kitchen scales 23 April 2009
By G. Horsham VINE VOICE
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
Nice slim and compact kitchen digit scales, that can be used to measure grams, pounds, fluid ounces and millilitres; you can very easily switch between them by the touch of a button too. Simple on/off button doubles up as a zeroing button too, so that you can measure out, say, 100g of flour, zero the scales and add a further 50g of flour all in the same bowl without having to do any maths; maximum weight it can measure is 5kg.

There is no bowl with this scale, as it is designed to have a flat platform onto which you can place your item to weigh, or place a bowl in which you can then add your ingredients, so very flexible. One minor grumble. As it is quite small (16cm x 18cm), the display can be difficult to read if the bowl on the scales is large. Overall an excellent product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great scales at a great price 28 Mar 2008
Colour Name:Black
What more can be said? It's such a slim device and is perfect for storage in our cupboard. The display is clear and its easy to use; the units being changed by just one button. Its also very accurate, which makes a change!

The build quality is also what you'd expect from Salter. This is essential if you're a busy bee in the kitchen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great scales! 3 Sep 2008
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I bought these scales as a replacement for my old Swan digital scales and it has been a superb purchase.

I use scales mainly for bread making and it is very accurate and sensitive to to even the smallest additions.Handy to put the breadmaker bowl on the scales and zero it between additions.

I was a bit doubtful about how it could measure liquids (ml) so used an accurate jug to pour liquids into the breadmaker bowl but the scales were spot on so now all the measurements are done by the scales apart from teaspoons of yeast and even 1 was registered on the scale!

One SLIGHT critisism is that the indicators of what mode you are in ie, grammes. ounces, ml etc are rather small for MY eyesight but the readout is great.

Another critisism is that it is now cheaper since I bought it!!!!

All in all a great machine and a fantastic price too with a 15 year guarantee.

How often do you see that nowadays!!!

March 2011.
After more than 2 years of use it is still fantastic and I think it is still the same battery!
I do a lot on ebay and need accurate scales for postage and they always have the same reading as on the Post Office scales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digital is the way forward 12 May 2008
Colour Name:Black
Always having to stand in the same position without daring to move so your eyes are in line with the dial, NO MORE do I have to do this. A revolation for me, add your ingredients accurately, press zero and add some more, so quick and easy. You can use any bowl/instrument to add your ingredients too. I love the design also, they just fit into any space/drawer. They feel sturdy and I definitely recommend if you are sick and tired of adjusting your eyes with a dial on manual scales, buy these. My cakes have never tasted as good!!!! Like cakes and not biscuits!!!!
