I would like to buy a new kitchen scale. I currently have a Taylor but it doesn't seem accurate. I also have a BACKKTCL that I bought from Amazon and it has issues as well. I used to have a Soehnle that I loved but batteries for it became hard to find. Anyone have one that they like. I read somewhere the Cook's Illustrated recommended Oxo Good Grips but it received some really bad reviews. Actually, I couldn't find any scale that didn't have some really bad reviews . Any recommendations out there? Thx.
I have 2 scales and I like them both very much. One is the Oxo Good Grips. They have several models. I have the 11# stainless steel model with the pull out display. I have had it for many years now and never had any issues with it and I give it quite a beating. You will always find bad reviews for items out there. I understand hesitating when you read them and I do the same thing, but you never make everyone happy. This is the other one that I have, it is a Tanita. This was the first one I purchased many years ago (I'm on my second one now but the first lasted many years and so has this one. I find it very accurate and I love how it folds up and stores in my cabinet. The Oxo is a bit easier to clean up since the top comes off and it is a bit easier to manipulate with a bigger surface for your vessel and the pull out display in case you have a large vessel on it but I still love the Tanita as well.
Hi - we have the Oxo. Like very much the pull-out feature so that we can still SEE the numbers if using a larger container to hold the ingredient. We've had ours a couple years now. No problems. Hope you find a good one. Catbatty

I asked this question on the old CLBB and Escali was recommended…I ordered and have been using it since and am pleased with it, very few issues…the one I ordered was the Escali Primo Lightweight Scale, 8.5 x 6 x 1.5 inches, Black…I guess the one drawback to this particular one is if I am using a large container it is hard to read the scale…

I have the old, old, Soehnle scale that was first reviewed and recommended on Cook's Illustrated (link above shows their reviews have changed). The Soehnle is very accurate but has some issues...I've had it for nearly 20 years now and it is still going strong.
