Totally inaccurate weighing
I love the design of these scales. The slide-out section is a really clever idea, the display is large and clear, putting the button to change units of measurement on top of the scale is so much better than having it underneath and when folded away the design is beautifully minimalist. However, what is the point if they can't weigh accurately. The test was 500 ml of water, which these scales told me weighed 420g, rather than the correct weight of 500g. I thought that they might need to settle down after delivery, so tried again a few hours later. This time they showed 418g. An error of 16% is absolutely unacceptable and I cannot believe that a manufacturer of Salter's reputation would allow anything this inaccurate to pass the factory gate!
My battered old EKS scales, which these were meant to replace are still completely accurate, even if the TARE function only works erratically.

Small and compact
Small, compact but easy to see weights.
Packaging doesn't tell you to take out small rubber strips tucked under the weighing 'plate'. I only noticed them as one fell out. Accuracy improved without them in so I presume they were meant to be removed.

Got these for Christmas. Loved the compact design but readings were about 10%-20% out. Just got a prompt replacement from JL (excellent service) but even the new ones were coming up light. Off to try and exchange them for a different model.

I love these scales. Large display, very easily read, even when I put a large bowl on top of them. Easily cleaned and very compact for storage.
