Weighing your options on kitchen scales? No need – we found a winner. If you already use one, you know how essential a scale is to a well-stocked kitchen. For meal prep, accurate recipe measurements and more, a kitchen scale is essential.
The Etekcity kitchen scale is consistently praised by reviewers – it has nearly 86,000 five-star reviews! And it’s now on sale for just $10 (down from $14).
A good kitchen scale is more accurate than a measuring cup, and this is crucial for complicated recipes like chocolate souffle. There are even serious coffee drinkers who measure their beans by weight. Just saying’.
Using a scale means fewer measuring cups and spoons to clean, and less work is always a good idea. Kitchen scales are also ideal for portion control – weighing your food can help keep calories in check. They also instantly convert measurements (from ounces to grams, say).
This one ticks all the boxes. It’s compact and slim so it easily tucks into a drawer or closet. And the size is right—small enough not to overwhelm a countertop if you choose to leave it out, but big enough to fit on a dinner plate.
It measures in pounds, ounces, grams, milliliters and fluid ounces. The stainless steel surface feels cool and cleans easily. Simply press the ‘tare’ button to deduct the weight of any bowl or plate you choose to use. And the auto-off function means you don’t have to press a button using breadcrumb-covered fingers.
Says a five-star reviewer: “The large platform on this scale makes it much more useful than most kitchen scales. I can use my bigger bowl on it and still read the viewfinder. I keep it on hand so it’s easy to use and allows me to avoid measuring cups that would need to be washed. I like to bake my own bread, and this scale allows me to measure flour very accurately in grams. The scale has a range of up to about 10 pounds, so it can be used with heavy glass or ceramic bowls. I use it almost every day and it worked flawlessly for 11 months on the original batteries.”
