This $12 Digital Kitchen Scale Is Our Newest Kitchen Obsession
While we still love our dial kitchen scales as much as we adore our analog watches, digital scales are quickly replacing their old-school counterparts (please don't call these versions "vintage" yet!). Though we can see our grandma scolding us, these new digital kitchen scales also offer some cool benefits that their dial counterparts can't.
So, which is the cream of the crop? The Etekcity Digital Kitchen Scale. Available on Amazon Prime for $12.99 to $15 (depending on the size you want), the scale is everything you could dream you wanted from a kitchen scale and more.
Currently, the scale has 6,895 five-star customer reviews and we only expect that number to grow as more happy customers get their hands on this sleek digital kitchen scale. It can help you in many ways—especially if you have trouble measuring ingredients in more precise recipes.
"The display is...an easy-to-read, backlit LCD screen that includes a handy battery indicator to keep you from being caught mid-baking project, realizing you need to run out and buy more AAA batteries. (Another great feature: some batteries are included with purchase!) And thanks to its slim, compact design, it's easy to store," writes The Kitchn's Marshall Bright of the affordable find. One of our own writers used a digital scale for 7 days straight, weighing everything she ate—it taught her a lot about portion control and cooking on a diet.
If you're interested in how a kitchen scale can change your diet, order one to test-drive the rave reviews—and bake your way through these better-for-you sweets all season long.
