Kitchen Scale: Digital Scales, Mechanical: Food, Nutrition: Top 10 Best

Updated on February 4, 2015

Kitchen scales can be mechanical or digital. A kitchen scale that is digital normally runs on batteries. For kitchen scales that are mechanical you do not need to worry whether you have enough batteries in the cupboard.

Everyone that cooks, at some time requires a kitchen scale, especially if you bake. The better quality kitchen scales have a higher capacity and smaller graduations. All should come with a tare function to eliminate the weight of containers.

Kitchen scales are a staple in any kitchen with the more contemporary designs being flat-bed rather than having the classic weighing tray.

The top ten best kitchen scales are:

  1. Ozeri Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale
  2. Ultra Thin Professional Digital Kitchen Food and Nutrition Scale
  3. Cuisinart KML-10 Perfect Weight Digital Kitchen Scale
  4. Fast Weigh MS-500-BLK Digital Pocket Scale
  5. OXO Good Grips 1157100 5-Pound Food Scale
  6. Terraillon 5-Pound Add and Weigh Kitchen Scale
  7. Salter 3003 Aquatronic Glass Electronic Kitchen Scale
  8. Salter 074 22-Pound Extra High Capacity Mechanical Kitchen Scale
