I was recently been given the chance to try out the digital kitchen food scale from Etekcity. It was perfect timing as both me and my husband had started trying to eat healthy. It arrived in the box in the picture above. Its very light weight and came with batteries all ready to go.
There are only 2 buttons on this scale. The power button and the unit button. The Unit button is great for saving me time on converting different weights. It can calculate grams, ounces, pounds or kilograms. The max weight for this scale is 15 pounds.
A great feature on this scale is that you can place a bowl on there and then reset the scale to zero so that you are only weighing your ingredients. The digital LED screen is very easy to read. There is also a low battery indicator on the screen. To save power the scale will automatically shut itself off after 120 seconds.
Because of its size storage for the scale is easy and fits easily into the drawer. We have also used this to weigh packages we needed to ship so we could buy out labels online from the post office. I noticed that the numbers for the weight in grams only deals in whole numbers but for the other weights you can get an accurate reading. Overall this is a great addition to my kitchen and use it every day.
