Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Great Heavyweight Very robust and its retro style sets it apart from other scales. I am really pleased with this product and it appears very accurate. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Scales These scales are very accurate, when zeroed correctly they give the same reading time and time again unlike my last digital scales. In my opinion they are well worth the money, if you buy cheap you buy twice. 27 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent, solid, user-friendly scales These scales are marvellous. They are accurate and reliable, even when I step on and off multiple times (ensuring they are zero'ed each time), my weight remains the same. Like any mechanical scale there is some adjustment to be made every now and then to ensure the scales are zero'ed. Some reviews on here state that their scales were way out of kilter when first purchased - this may be due to the 'key' not being removed on the back. As soon as it has been released the scale pops into action. It then needs fine-tuning using the slider at the front. There is a basic instruction manual included. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spot on Whilst larger than your normal bathroom scales, these are built to last and reliably accurate. Personally I wouldn't touch digital scales as I've heard too many negative things about them and wanted something that was sturdy and would last. I think I've succeeded! 29 September 2015
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
