Smart Weigh Digital Kitchen Scale With Platform Review

logo

I have a few kitchen scales, and one that is spot-on accurate that gets used. A lot. But over time, every scale will, with heavy use, become somewhat inaccurate. And I use mine very heavy, so I’m always on the look out for a replacement or backup. I was hoping with the Smart Weigh platform digital scale my search had ended. Sadly, the search continues.

See, the one thing a scale must be, every time, is accurate. Sometimes a gram or two will make a difference between good food and dog food (no reason to toss a semi-dry loaf of bread when the pooch would go ga-ga over it). And hubby measures his various sundry shakes and powdered voodoo by the gram, so yeah, sometimes…one gram matters. And no matter what I tried, wet or dry ingredients, glass or plastic containers, this scale just would not tare properly. Every time we’d add a gram or two, tare, and start adding again, it stayed at “zero”. When we removed the vessel, without fail, it would show the total weight, original plus added. Yet the display, every time, showed again, “0”. So very frustrating.

What’s sad is that I may have just gotten a bum unit. The reviews on Amazon are absolutely stellar. It has a lot of features I really like, like the removable tempered glass platform, the sleek glass top with integrated touch controls so that no ingredients get caked up around the buttons. It uses 4 AAA batteries (not included), so there’s no need to hunt down button cell batteries online or pay through the nose at a store. Firm gripping non-skid feet and a solid base. Bright backlit LCD display. Lb, oz, ml and cups measurements. It has everything I would want in a scale, if it were accurate. But it’s not. For $23.99, I want accuracy. The manufacturer also offers a 2-year warranty, so I may see what the company is made of or how it stands behind it’s products, because I’m just heartbroken that this snazzy, smooth-looking scale is useless in my kitchen.
