The EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale is a basic model offering four measurement units that read in decimals: grams, ounces, kilograms and pounds. With an 11-pound capacity and a tare function, this affordable food scale meets the needs of most cooks, reviewers say. Many also make note of the included calorie-count book, which helps dieters quickly calculate the amount of calories in many foods. The Precision Pro allows for push-button conversion between grams and ounces, even while measuring.
On the negative side, some owners say measuring with a large bowl or plate can block the display. If you prefer weight readouts in fractions rather than decimals, consider the sturdy and reliable Oxo Good Grips Food Scale With Pull-Out Display (*Est. $50), which offers an easy-to-read, backlit, pullout display for use with larger containers.
