We recently had to buy some new kitchen scales as our old ones sadly died, they were also salter scales. They lasted us really well and the only reason they died was a fault of our own (D burnt them by leaving them on the cooker hob!) otherwise I have no doubt they would still be going now.

Our new scales are great and in a way its good we had an excuse to buy some more. We had a look at the various Salter scales and choose this one, several reasons really but the main ones were; this one came with a bowl, the scales does litres, UK pints, US cups, UK Fl.oz.

We have been using them for the last week and they are much easier to use than the last ones. The display is easier to read (as the design is different it means you don’t end up having random bowls etc obscuring the display) and we also find the results are more stable, meaning the results don’t change so much. Its also very handy that you have a bowl designed to fit the scales, it just makes it so much easier when coming to measure things. No trying to find a bowl or something else to use because the scales are already to use. The other main difference is being able to measure more things as this scales has far more options than the last, the last one only weighed in KGs and OZs but as mentioned above this one does far more than that. This has meant the scales has been used more and made measuring a lot easier and quicker too.

The only con we can think of regarding these scales is the size of the text used to display which unit you are measuring in. Apart from that though everything else is positive. The scales might not look the most modern or pretty but practicality wins every time.
