So for those asking about kitchen scales for measuring using weight rather than cups, this is the brand I have: https://www.amazon.com/Salter-Design-Electronic-Platform-Kitchen/dp/B000ZNM51O/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1490373011&sr=8-5&keywords=kitchen+scale+salter
I’ve had mine for almost a decade at this point and it’s still the best one I’ve ever owned, so if you’re looking at the $30 price tag and thinking it’s steep, from how much I use them on a near daily basis for the last 7+ years, I can tell you they are worth investing in as they’re damn sturdy.
I’m not sure about other brands, but I’ve always used Salter, except for that one time when I had to literally use one of these at work:
Because that was how we retained our historically authentic trademark. Those were a pain in the ass.
My mother actually has a set of those that belonged to her mother, and they’re a damn sight shinier. I’m still figuring out how to get them over to the US with me when the time comes for me to inherit them.
