Finding a Good Kitchen Scale

If you are serious about following a low sodium diet you will need to keep track of your daily sodium intake. A good kitchen scale will make tracking easier and more accurate. If you are shopping for a scale here’s what you need to find:

• A scale with a digital readout.
• A scale that switches easily from ounces to grams.
• A scale that allows you put a container on the scale and then reset to zero.
• A scale that comes with its own removable easy to clean container.

I am using a Salter electronic kitchen scale that I’ve had for almost 3 years. It has all of the above features and is still using the original battery. I think I paid about $40 dollars for it.

Scales are one thing. Easy to clean containers are another thing. It is a mistake to give the same manufacturer responsibility for producing for you a scale that you like with "its own easy to clean container" that you like. Get your own easy to clean container --or you own easy to clean container for each job you do with the scale (You might want a different container for yogurt than you use for pine nuts or flour). If you're weighing motor oil, you might want a paper cup you can throw away.

My point is: Don't get hung up on a container that comes with the scale. The one that came with mine is in the cupboard someplace. I've never used it. I like the scale, though.
