Multifunction Digital Kitchen Scales

Multifunction Digital Kitchen Scales – 14 Selection Criteria

Finding the best digital kitchen scales is easy these days if you know what you are looking for and where to look.

Bulky inaccurate units that took up a big slice of bench space are old fashioned and new compact digital units have taken their place.

Accurate scales are required for recipes that require ingredients by weight rather than volume. The success of the recipe depends on it.

Here are my list of 14 criteria for selecting a multifunction digital scale for the kitchen:

  • Accurate to 1 gram
  • Measure weights up to 11 pounds
  • Multiple measuring units
  • Tare button
  • Easy to read display
  • Stable platform
  • Good battery life
  • Small footprint
  • Easy to store
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to use
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Automatic shutoff
  • Reasonable price

Most of these criteria are self explanatory but I will elaborate on a few points.

Automatic shutoff to save batteries is a handy feature as long as it allows enough time for use of the scales. Something like 3 minutes should be OK.

Slim scales look great but they usually use a small CR2032 lithium battery that may need replacing often. AA batteries are bulkier but easier to purchase.

The tare button that zeros your scales is a very handy feature. Put your container on the scale before turning it on and it should come up zero, then add your ingredients.

If you like certain colors or want to co-ordinate appliances then there are some brands of scales that comes in a choice of colors.

My favorite scale is the EatSmart Precision Pro and a close second is the MIRA Glass Platform Digital Kitchen Scale.
