A Trojan workhorse in my kitchen
I have the 3003 model, which is glass instead of SS. After 14 years, it finally has retired itself, despite my pleas not to do so. This scale has been used almost every day, from weighing items to determine exact defrosting time in the microwave, to baking and liquid measures. Easy switch at the bottom for unit measure preference. Replaced the batteries only once, from memory. It cost me $115 on sale 14 years ago, but has been worth its weight (sorry) in gold. I’m now off to buy another Salter digital kitchen scale. All my research has proved t...hat Salter is still the best way for me to go - various unit measures that I need but not over the top with useless stuff I won’t ever use. This is my personal opinion and experience and not an endorsement by any means! Hope it’s useful for anyone thinking of brands. BTW - can’t beat their current 15 year guarantee. When I bought mine, it was a 10 year guarantee and that was considered exceptional back then.
Purchased in June 2006.
Easy to use, excellent battery life
Resolution 2 g, weighs up to 10 kg. Battery life excellent - have replaced the battery only 3 times in 7 years. Easy to switch back and forth between metric and imperial measures. Only problem I have encountered is a faulty LCD display - used to play up only when the battery was getting low, but now 2 of the digits are permanently only partially displaying, so time has come to consider replacing it.
Excellent until I dropped them. Twice.
I bought these scales (or a very similar model) from Harris Scarfe a few years ago and they were brilliant. I found they were accurate and I didn't have a problem with the battery life; perhaps the other reviewer got a dud unit. I accidentally knocked them off the bench, but the only thing that broke was the stand underneath. I managed to fix it and they continued to work well until I recently dropped them again, which proved to be too much. These scales are pricey, but I found they were worth the money I spent.
