The more I cook, the more necessary a kitchen scale becomes for me. Many recipes require a weight measurement, rather than number or size. I have been using this old kitchen scale that I got from my mother a gazillion years ago. It weighs accurate, however, the problem is that it is big and ugly. In fact, I don't even keep it in the kitchen because I just don't have space in my cupboard for it. (Guess I have too many other oddities in the cupboard, like pizelle makers and pasta makers.) So, every time I need to weigh items when cooking, I have to trek off to the office to get my scale. Till now, that is.
I recently tried a digital kitchen scale from Surpahs. The Surpahs Digital Kitchen scale is perfect! It has a smooth, sleek, stainless steel design. It is so slim (just .6") that I can slip it in my cupboard without taking up hardly any space. I love it!
Weighing something repeatedly on different areas of the scale produced the same results, so I would say it is very accurate. The display panel is large with LED green numbers. I also like that this runs on 4 AAA batteries, as opposed to some specialized battery that you usually don't have on hand. There is a battery indicator light that comes on when you turn the unit on. The scale is also finger-print resistant and which helps it to stay looking nice and clean.
