Great review of kitchen scales. All the problems you show are ones I have seen (and grumbled over). In the recent past, as an analytical chemist in pharmaceutical research, I frequently had to calibrate balances in labs. As part of this, you take a minimum of three replicate measurements at the centre of the pan (as you show) and four sets of three more, at the edges of the pan - in the four pan quadrants. Did you carry out any similar tests to determine whether off-centre weighing was a problem? There are also tests to determine whether the scales are "accurate" when measuring at the low and high parts of their full range - I guess these were beyond the scope of your tests? Finally, I have frequently seen scales (kitchen, bathroom or laboratory) give unreliable readings until the electronics fully warmed up (or not). Did your tests include any of this? Notwithstanding the questions above, I took your advice and purchased the recommended OXO set.
If you're looking to how to use a scale do you need any other example??
I bought this one walmart scale and it doesn't have an on/off switch it just turns on when something is on it................ HORRIBLE design, any time I put it away it would turn on and waste battery, then by the time I needed it the battery would be dead.
SO STUPID. Hate that fucking thing.
I purchased the $50 Oxo scale on the first recommendation, and was glad to see it was still “top of the heap” in this review. The scale has been in near-daily use for years and still works as new. The ease of zeroing the scale is essential and a constant use function, as is the ability to swap from Kg to Pounds while using many of my favorite British and European recipes. The pull out and backlit control panel is awesome when weighing larger items. This is, beyond doubt, the best designed and built scale I have ever used. Although I was initially reluctant to spend this much for a “simple scale” I found that, in use, it would be a good buy at double the price. Like the Thermapen thermometer, sometimes what appears to be high priced turns out to be quite the bargain. Good job, Lisa!
I've been using the Ozeri scale daily for eons & will happily vouch for it. After five or six years, the clear plastic shield covering the flat buttons wears away & you may want to buy a new one, but otherwise it's great. Completely worth the $ & saves a lot of messy time jockeying chopped & liquid ingredients in and out of measuring cups, once you know what a cup of chopped onions weighs....
Scales are an excellent tool, but the people who's cooking I admire most and who's food I find most satisfying don't use them. They are people with a lifetime of cooking under the belt they cook for the people they love not for the camera. If you want to grow that obsessive compulsive thing you got going on go for it break out the scale. If you want to live life learn to throw things together.
Actually I was looking at a spoon digital scale because like I was saying I need it just for for 1 gr.
I need to measure 1 gr for my Italian recipes, which scale is accurate for that? I have a beautiful Salter but doesn’t go lower than 5 gr. I really need an accurate 1 gr. I spent a lot of time looking for one but the reviews are not great.. I would appreciate if someone helps me thanks
Why doesn't OXO food scale have an ON/OFF button (4 minute shut-off is way too long)? How does AWS food scale stack up against OXO?
This list is useful too, what you guys think?:
It really helped me choose the right item
Old fashioned starfrit scale is the way to go.
They’re 7-10$ and last forever.
The only gripe is the unit button that is on the bottom.
I liked the design of the oxo scales but was very disappointed that it only goes from pounds to grams. No floz or ml, what use is that?
I have an Oxo scale (max-5 lbs) which I have been using for the past 8 years and I have used it for just about everything. The removal of the tray to clean is nice. To weigh ground beef for burgers is rather nice too.
I strongly advice the kitchen scale from Amazon. https://amzn.to/33KBlq6. The price is about 14 usd, very affordable.
Design and features are great for the item I purchased from Amazon May be this item also good and you should think too.
Beware buyers, my scale failed after only two months and my continued contact with the Oxo warranty department has been ignored. I’m left with a worthless tool that was quite expensive.

I got the Ozeri off your recommendation and I am loving it. It has been one of the cheapest most powerful tools for my kitchen and with it not only has my baking improved but when I applied it to batch cooking and macro tracking it changed the game for me. Thanks 😊
No mention of how long the displays stay on, some are very short, it’s like they never heard of pour over coffee, no mentions of problems I have seen, powering it up, automatically zeroing out with a bowl that’s slightly 2 heavy, not too heavy for the scales, just too heavy for powering up, somewhere around 2 lbs gets an error message.
They did the same thing with electric water kettles, no idea people use them for pour over coffee, opting for a short snout version. Nobody wants to own two electric kettles.
Thank you so much for your great review it was very helpful.I have just bought the oxo scales

Can u change weight unit from kg to pounds/lbs???
Mine isn’t doing the body fat and body water thing
how do i change kg to pounds
I keep getting a different weight each time I step on the scale. Shouldn't it be the same weight if weighing myself just a few seconds later?
Mine's batteries died, and I got new batteries, but it doesn't work. I don't know why....
mine doesnt weight my body fat or water weight. when I step on it, it only shows my weight and it never stays steady even when i stand still.
Escali has an excellent warranty program. Fortunately, your scale is covered with a lifetime limited warranty. If your scale is still stuck, please find the warranty link on the bottom of our website, or call 1-800-467-6408 and ask for assistance.
