Can anyone recommend a good, inexpensive scale?

October 19, 2011 - 11:39am -- Cinnamon Turtle

I have a low-end DigiWeigh postal scale that is meant to weigh in both English and metric, but I've found that it's not terribly sensitive, and I've only been able to get it to register grams in increments on five. Sometimes, it doesn't seem to register at all until there's at least ten grams on it. Of course, there could actually be God know how much from none to 14 grams, probably. Obviously, this isn't working out well.

scale - converting to grams?

Does anyone know how to get the Weigh Of Life scale to show grams? I don't have the manual and I've scoured the internet for hours without results. Currently it shows ounces, and no amount of button pushing seems to change that.

The scale looks like this:

(mine is an older version with a metal plate instead of glass)

Overloaded my 2-volt brain!

January 14, 2009 - 11:19am -- symplelife4me

I have been wanting to buy a food scale for some time. With my increased interest in bread baking it's scooted up to the top of my wish list so I've been researching. I've read just about every scale thread on this site and googled til my brain hurts! All I've done is overwhelm myself with choices and I still have no clue what I want/need.

So here is my question(s): What is important in a scale? What features am I going to find that I can't live without?
