Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SUPERB Superb, I can read them and they are accurate. Excellent service from John Lewis 18 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality scales with old school style It's much larger than other modern scales however great quality and very sturdy. If you have the space it's worth it 30 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Overpriced for poor quality Very disappointed. When unpacked the scales had various problems : a) the dial indicator was canted over to the left hand side by approximately half an inch; b) the dial was not level and it touched the underside of the chrome rim on the right hand side and was approximately 1 cm to 1/2” lower than the chrome ring on the left hand side c) the zero adjustment was catching on the casing possibly because the dial was not central in the display d)the covering on the foot pad appeared to be quite thin with already four indentations indicating holes in the metal beneath the covering - an obvious area of weakness for failure of the covering during use I wrote to the manufacturer and received the usual platitudes in reply - they suggested I contact John Lewis which is rather unfair since this poor design and cheap quality is outside of JL responsibility ! John Lewis were, as ever, very helpful. Scales returned and replaced with a vintage scale of better quality and accuracy - result! 16 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Really poor quality Had to return it as it was not worth the money I paid 26 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very accurate!! Nice looking scales and they do the job well. Not heavy. Dial is very clear and when you step on it, it instantly gives you a clear reading, none of this wavering about for the dial to settle. Quite a lot to pay but you do get a quality product and very pleased we made the decision to go with some decent scales. I am sure you won't be disappointed in purchasing these. 28 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A vintage-looking bathroom scale I'm very pleased with this scale. A nice vintage medical look. It is easy to read . My only reason for not awarding five stars is it is rather bigger than it needs to be so in my small flat it's taking up space I hadn't planned for. My last more humble scale fitted nicely under the chest of drawers. 21 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 Poor quality I was disappointed when, within a year of purchase, these scales became faulty. The dial stuck at one stone when they were taking no load. Especially disappointing as they were expensive scales and I bought them expecting a premium, quality product. 15 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Returned item as not accurate We found these scales to be unreliable as they seemed to say a difference weight every time we stood on them so we returned him. 14 April 2015
