## I Need A New Scale

I've used this Salter scale [1] for a long time.

I melted one once (yes, on the stove burner) and immediately replaced it with another, so I like it and recommend it.

But...

It's limited by an 11 lb/5 kg capacity.

That limit works for most things, but not for a mixer bowl that weighs 8 lbs/3.6 kg.

It leaves me with a 3 lb/1.4 kg capacity before the scale says NUH! NO MORE WEIGHT!

Can someone recommend a scale the would be a fit, because I'm about to go nuts with all of the available options.

MUST HAVE

- - at least 25 - 40 lb capacity (+/-5 lb); 11 to 18 kg capacity (+/-2 kg)
- - metric AND imperial
- - digital
- - tare
- - weighs in 1g increments before 5 lbs. (
*this is the tricky one; feel free to move to NICE TO HAVE column*) - - weighs in 5g increments after 5 lbs.

NICE TO HAVE

- - volume (mL, fl oz)

Thanks!
