Customer Comments

 This is a very good set of scales and although the picture doesn't do it justice the finish on the bowl is highly polished. The only real niggle is that it shuts down fairly quickly to save the battery, but once you are used to it and ensure you have everything that needs to be weighed together ready to weigh up it is OK, but this is why I have rated it as 4 rather than 5 star. If you have different groups of things you are weighing then it is worth switching it off between lots so it doesn't turn off unexpectedly in the middle of weighing an item.

I have purchased many cheap Salter scales over the last few years since I began my baking business. I have had nothing but trouble with them and they have been very inaccurate. I decided to purchase these because of the good reviews and I'm pleased to say that I have not been disappointed. I got them half price which makes it even better.
They are accurate, easy to use and the big bowl that comes with them is lovely. The fact that they take 3 x AAA batteries is brilliant - no more spending a fortune on those little watch type batteries plus if they run low halfway through baking I know I always have a bunch of triple A's in the drawer.
Can't fault this item so far, however I will update if they do not last as long as I would expect.
