Works fine, bit too much cheap plastic
on 11 August 2012
I really cannot fault the scale function-wise. It has a nice large metal bowl, it gives you the reading in grams or lbs and it's definitely accurate enough for any kitchen application.
Sometimes when you hold a product for the first time, you know immediately that it's a quality product. Unfortunately this is where the Salter lets you down. The bowl is nice and solid, yes, but unfortunately the base of the scale is made from cheap plastic that you really would not expect in a product of this price range.
In operation the scale works well, but because of the small rubber feet of the scale are placed only under the bowl and not under the console where the buttons are, every time you press a button, the scale rocks a bit. In the end I added small pieces of rubber as extra feet. This kind of small things just should not exist in a product of this price.
And oh yes, it's made in China.
