Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little scales !!!! Do the job perfectly also nice and small to store away . 17 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing I don't find it at all easy to measure small quantities with these scales. The smallest gradation (and I mean small) is 40 grams, and the smallest printed measurement is 200 grams - not even a 100. All this could have been improved if the manufacturer had dropped his ambition to measure up to 5 kilos, then we could have had some more easily readable gradations. 16 September 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Smaller than they look These scales are so small, that although they are marked up to 5 KG. it would be hard to balance that much on them. Pounds are marked out in ounces, but so close together, that it makes them v. difficult to read accurately. KGs are marked every 200 gms. 100 would be more useful. However, they are sold as value scales, so I guess it's a case of you get what you pay for. Not suitable for the serious cook. I must praise the Click and Collect service. I ordered them on the Saturday before Christmas, and collected them by mid day on the Sunday from Waitrose. 24 December 2013
