Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Salter Aquatronic Glass Electronic Kitchen Scale.
We use this product daily, and I like that you can switch from grams to ounces/pounds with a press of a button. With another press you can even measure fluid ounces.
I use this in my mead making, formulation of herbal medicines and teas, and Dorothy uses it daily to cull out any eggs under our weight limit for sale to our customers.
I did a lot of homework when we replaced our last scale and without paying way to much this is the one I came down on. It does use CR2032 Coin Style Batteries but it uses just one of them, and lasts a LONG time on a single battery. Still I have scopes and other stuff that uses these so I picked up 20 of them for just over 8 bucks to go along with my scale, I think that will hold this thing until the zombies march and beyond.
The other reason I like this scale is it takes several minutes to auto shut off with no activity. Our last scale would shut off in 30 seconds of no activity and this was maddening when adding multiple ingredients and having to go grab something and coming back to a dark scale, with everything out of wack at that point! This is not a product everyone needs but if you want a good scale, for under 40 bucks with shipping this is what we use.
Please note this is a KITCHEN SCALE not a reloading scale, it measures in ounces and grams, kilos and pounds. Not grains or fractions of grams, you are not going to be able to sort pellets by weight or weigh powder charges with it. Just FYI. Also it DOES COME with the one required battery, you don’t need the CR2032 Coin Style Batteries that I linked to but I just included them because they are the best price I have found on quality ones in quantity so far.
