Which scales? UK please
my cheapy scales broke ages ago and it's time I bought some new ones... I did search TFL for previous threads on the subject but makes that got the most votes (OXO, My Weigh) are unavailable here in the UK (i did find a few My Weigh's on eBay, but at only 3 kg capacity and £40 it's not ideal). Amazon UK seems to be filled with Salter and Duronic and both have very mixed reviews.
It doesn't have to be super-duper precise but constant readings are essential! I get very frustrated with the fact that my baby scales (which, for want of alternatives, I'm currently using for baking) give me 5 different reading for the same bowl of flour! (weighing a baby on them is even more pointless as you can't make them stay still!)
I'd also consider mechanical scales as I find that digital measuring equipment (save professional) doesn't last very long...
my budget would ideally be around £20 - £25.
