Salter's innovative 'CD Style' Electronic Kitchen Scale with Clock & Thermometer is a magnificent statement piece which is both practical for its space saving qualities and its innovative design. With a wall mountable display and platform featuring an infrared connection, this top of the range scale offers an eye-height blue backlit screen that shows the time and temperature when not operating in scale mode. With this ingenious space-saving gadget ingredients can either be weighed directly onto the platform or by using a separate bowl.

My only comment is that you can't weigh things on a large plate on the scale as the plate will cover up the infrared and not transmit data to the receiver. That's OK though, just put the item straight on the scale - it is easy to clean.
A good looking and easy to use scale, increments of 1 gram, large number display that is backlit and nice to have a clock and temperature at eye level in the kitchen as well. A bit pricy at full price but a great deal at 29.99
Happy weighing Noel
The blue clock bit can be screwed into a wall, but I have heard screwing into kitchen tiles is difficult (the tile might crack) so I think they should have provided some little white sticky pads so you can stick it to the wall instead. Now I have to find some, probably not such a big deal I guess.
The reason I give this 4 stars is to do with line-of-sight. The kitchen scale talks to the clock by shining infra-red light in it's general direction. When the clock sees the light, it displays the weight.
If you put something in the way of the infra-red light, (e.g. an overweight cat with the unshakeable belief that it is underweight), then you won't get a reading. Other examples include:
placing the clock on a shelf - the shelf will block the signal.
placing a normal-sized plate on the scale. then placing food on the plate. The plate will block the signal. (you might be able to get round this somewhat by moving the scale away from the clock and moving the plate forward a bit)
I think they should have used pigeons to transmit the signal. (My cat agrees with me on this.)
To operate, all you have to do is remove the outer disc part lay it flat on the worktop in front of the wall mounted section with the red half disc lined up. Place a bowl on the scale and this activates the clock which then changes to show pounds and ounces. Press the zero button which resets the scale to zero and then add the contents of what you want to weigh. You can also change it to read ml, fl.ounces and grams.
When you've finshed with it simply place the outer disc back on the wall mounted section and then the clock and temperature is again displayed. Fantastic.
Having now used them a few times they work superbly. When not being used for weighing they have a clock and temperature display. Someone mentioned not being able to put a plate on the scales as it broke the signal between the weigh base and the display but that is not a problem I use a plastic bowl to put my ingredients in. It's good that you can zero the scales, just by pressing a button, so that the weight of the bowl is not included when weighing your ingredients. Also being able to decide whether you want llbs/ozs or Kilo/grams by the press of a button is also a boon.
This sounds stupid but everyone who has been in my kitchen has commented on how unusal they are. There are going to be a few sets being bought as christmas presents, that is due to peoples requests, not me imposing on them.
