Best Digital Kitchen Scales

4561 e075 97

All good cooks need an accurate kitchen scale (see this NYT article on why scales produce better results than relying on cup measurements), and this page details all the best kitchen scales on the market, so you can make an informed decision about what to buy.


The Salter Aquatronic Glass Kitchen Scale is a sleek modern kitchen scale that can weigh up to 11 pounds of food.

It’s not as sensitive as Eat Smart Kitchen Scale in that the lowest weight it can cope with is two grams (instead of the Eat Smart’s one gram). However, if you are cooking for a large family, it’s unlikely you will need to weigh such small quantities. It copes with pounds and ounces as well as kilos and grams.

The glass platform resists staining and does not retain any smells from the food weighed on it. You can weigh food directly on the platform, or on a bowl.

It comes with a 10 year warranty and replacable lithium batteries. Buy it online with free shipping


This is a small lightweight kitchen scale, that can weigh food up to capacity 11 pounds. (If your recipes are all in metric, be assured that it handles kilograms and grams just as well). The Eat Smart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale comes with rubber “feet” underneath, to ensure it doesn’t slide along your kitchen worktop.

It’s very sensitive (it can cope with one gram or 0.5 ounce) – this is great for dieters and those who are preparing small amounts of food. You can weigh foods directly on it (as in the picture right), or you can use the zero (tare) function, which automatically eliminates the weight of the plate or bowl you have put your food in. The LCD screen is large and clear with big numbers, which make it easy to see even when viewing from the side.

The scale comes in white, silver, black and red. Two AAA batteries are included with it (this kitchen scale is unusual in being able to use standard batteries instead of specialist batteries), and it also comes with a free Eat Smart Calorie Factors guide. you can get it with free shipping


The Polder KSC-310-28 Easy Read Digital Glass Top Scale, Silver has a modern non-removable glass top, a silver body and an extra large LCD screen for displaying weights. It’s sensitive – it can weigh items as small as 1 gram or 1/8 ounce, and has a maximum capacity of 6 1/2 pounds.

It has an unusual “Add and Weigh” feature, which allows you to add weigh multiple items without removing the items you’ve already placed on the scales.

It’s powered by 3V batteries (which they include), and comes with a 1 year warranty. It’s easy to clean – just wipe the glass top with soap and water. You can buy it with free shipping
