Salter 1001 11-Pound Square Glass Kitchen Scale, Silver

With an attractive glass measuring plate and compact size, this electronic kitchen scale blends functionality with style. From England’s original scale manufacturer Salter, the sensitive gauge of this scale provides precise measurement for the most elaborate recipe or detailed dietary needs.

Cooks place ingredients on a durable glass plate to weigh. The 7-inch square plate cleans easily, and its construction hinders residual flavors and staining for greater sanitation.

For measurement with bowls or other containers, users need only place the empty container on the scale and press the power button to set the measurement at zero for isolated ingredient weights. The scale adapts to either the metric or imperial system and measures quantities up to 11 pounds or five kilograms. The scale displays increments of 1/8 ounces or 2 grams as fractions rather than decimals. Batteries are included with this scale. Salter offers a ten-year warranty on this product. The scale measures 7 by 8 by 1-1/4 inches and weighs 1.55 pounds. --Jessica Reuling
