Q & As


John Lewis The Basics Mechanical Scales, 5kg 3 5 1 1
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
