The best kitchen scale.....I really think so!

"Soehnle" scale I bought from "Sur La Table" about 3 years ago. They don't carry this particular scale anymore, but have a similar scale that works the same, maybe even better. They make digital scales and such, but this is the model that comes with a big bowl and works like a regular scale. The big 'fitted' bowl is very convenient. This scale is very accurate, very easy to use, and is the cheapest scale they sell. It's swiss made. I've been using it for three years, and I love it.......and it's cheap compared to all these digital messes they have nowadays....and works without battery or electricity. Even if the recipe is measured in cups and such...I weigh everything as I bake and rewrite my own recipe...I feel weight is more accurate usually.
My two cents.

You are 100% correct.When you use the cups that flour will vary:someone use the of flour and that cup should weight 4.5 once and ather person use the same the cup and that cup weight 6+ onces.When you weight your flour that come always 4.5 once.Do you have name or model that scale you talk about??? I'm looking to buy but not very expensive but good.I do know that there are so many scales on the market but I do not know how to pick right one.I do have one but that is to old.

Hello Saintdennis. Go to Sur la Table...google it. you can order a "Salter Aqua-Weigh Mechanical Scale" for about $25.00. You can weigh solids and liquids with this scale, and it comes with a cool groovy bowl-big!

I found it for $14.99 on one web site.  I think I will get it, I use a scale currently, but its digital.
