.I'm in the process of trying to buy a new smaller scale then I currently own. I also measure to bake, and cook along with dietary foods. Presently I have a Salter scale that has a 6# 7 oz. capacity, but its a pain to use & not easy to learn. I know its accurate, and considering the cost, I know I will to continue to use it, but am continually looking for a 2nd scale that will fit on my counter better. This scale when closed, is very nice looking, but is not practical to leave out on counter-top for 3 meals or more a day.
I suggest checking out Salter scales for accuracy first, and learn about what you want in a scale before buying one. I jumped too quickly when I purchased this one.

I've been searching for a new scale, as well. The one I have varies between 2-4 lbs. I can't have that kind of inconsistency if I want to be successful with my weight loss.

I'd love to hear some input on this too. Anybody have good consistency with a digital scale to share? A doctor-type balance scale would be best but I simply don't have the space for it.

I have the fitbit Aria scale. I love that it automatically syncs to the app an I have the fitbit force. I got the force for christmas and the aria for my bday which is Jan. 4th. They are very pricey but I love technology.

Buy a doctor-type balance scale. A little spendy ($150) but accurate and reliable. The one I have weighs me the same weight as the certified scale we have at work.

Food scales or weight scales?

What do you think is the best digital scales to purchase? Looking for something that will last.
In the past, I have purchased walmart digital scales. Never fails that within a couple of months, they stop working correctly. Put in new batteries and same thing. Have gone thru 3 different scales like this.

I don't mind investing a little bit of money for scales that will last.

Any suggestions?
