Which scale?

I need a new scale. I am upgrading from an Escali that has served me well for the past 5 years.  It has a small surface and only reads to 11 pounds.  I'd like to get one that reads 17 pounds or better (maybe 25 or 30 even?--I dunno).  I'd like it to have a larger surface as well.

Any recommendations?  My budget is $30-75.

Thanks!

I use Escali for my cooking.  If you want one to have a higher weight limit, you are going to pay more or sacrifice the accuracy for small weights.  Sorry, but I have no recommendation.  Perhaps someone else can help.

I use this one and really like it. It goes up to 17 pounds. The site below has a good breakdown of the features but you can get it cheaper at Amazon, $35.80 & free shipping!

Look at the MyWeigh kd7000.  it will handle 16#.  I have one I have used for 2 years now and I love it costs about $30-$35.
