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 Accurate and easy to use 18 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Have used the scales a few times now and like the fact that they are easy to zero if using one bowl for everything (saves on washing up). Also can change measuring unit if need to add liquid to the recipe. After reading one review I was worried that I might not be able to see the read-out as it could get obscured by a bowl. It must have been a very large bowl as I have not encountered this problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Try this in your Kitchen. 9 May 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This is a very convenient product. It is compact enough to put in a drawer yet large enough to take all the usual items for everyday cooking. The only criticism ( if that is the right word) is that it would be perhaps more efficient to have the display numbers slightly further away from the weighing area, perhaps makin the whole machine an oblong instead of square. (Bowls do tend to obscure the display)

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY NEAT SCALES 6 Jan 2013
By sassi
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I read a number of reviews before purchasing these scales and although one or two said there was a problem reading the display I decided to try them anyway. I understand what people were saying about the display which can easily be difficult to see when a bowl is placed on the scale. Fortunately I had the bowl from my previous scale and this is clear plastic which makes it easier to see the reading. So, to sum them up, I like these scales very much and it's much better having a digital read-out, also easy to change from kilos to lbs ozs etc and great for storage.

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!
