    I've bought 2 Salter scales. 1 broke after 6 months or so, the other has been going strong for 4 or 5 years. I just replaced the Salter with an Oxo because it had big numbers, a lovely blue backlight, and the display actually pulls away from the scale about 6 inches on a wire if you need to weigh something big (like a bag of charcoal?)

    We bought the same scale, with a plastic top instead of the stainless, 3 1/2 years ago. It has seen service 5 or 6 days a week since, and has only needed one battery replacement. Oh, and we paid $28 to $30 for ours.

    I have had a hard time finding a scale that I would find useful. For example, let's say I am making some sausage. First, I would like to weigh the amount of pork needed. However, all butts (except Costco) have a bone in them. So I need it to weigh large weights of up to 10 lbs. Then, when I do my seasoning for said sausage, I find that most recipes ask for the amount of seasoning to be used in grams. So I need something that can also be seen in tenths of grams as well as 16 oz for larger items.

    If anyone knows of a scale that good for both of these, please mention it. The only thing I can think of is a science scale or a pharmaceutical scale?????

    I am using an amazing scale which is deadly accurate. More accurate than needed actually. It really is all the ad says and more. I can weigh seasoning with it 1g is no problem 28g to the oz. does 6kilo which is over 12lbs. touch button to change scales. Comes with ac adapter and is very easy to read. I have had it for over a year now and it is used daily. The unit is very easy to clean because of its design.

    I bought a 22 lb Salter dial scale for sausage at Sportsmans Wharehouse. Cabelas has a 44 lb one for $40. -RP
