I'm with JamiRBlaze. I think we have the same Walmart scale! I bought it when I was just starting out and didn't want to break the bank. It seems accurate to me (when something says 1 oz = about 27 chips or whatever, it is typically spot on.) It's easy to use, small and it's been a cheap purchase that has made all the difference for me!

I guess that it depends what you want it for, but I just have a cheap digital scale from Walmart. The brand name is not on it and the packaging is long gone, but I have seen them there recently - it's grey with glass top and costs less than $20. Is it super duper accurate? Probably not, but it's close, tares easily, changes unit simply and is easy to change the battery. Doesn't tell you the calories or anything like that, but I don't need it to.

I have the OXO scale too. I really like it. It measure in grams and ounces, and I like that you can measure food on a plate or in a bowl by setting it to 0 once you place it on the scale. Very practical. I got it for about $35.00.

I bought a WW scale and love it. It can measure in grams our ounces. I bought it last year with a coupon so I can't remember how much it costs. It does the job.

I have an OXO 5 Lbs. Food Scale with pull out display. It's easy to use, compact and economical. It also fits into a small drawer when not in use, which was important to me. The pull out display feature is very handy. I've found it to be accurate.

I have a Salter digital scale and it is really accurate and easy to use. It has a flat platform, so I put my bowl or whatever on the platform and turn it on and it will be automatically zeroed out so I can add the food to the bowl and get an accurate weight. I actually use it more for measuring my horse's supplements and when I am brewing beer, so I like that it measures accurately in grams or ounces, depending on what I need. Also, it is less than 2" tall, so it is easy to store unlike the spring scale we used to have that had to live on top of the fridge.

Tell me about which food scale you use and why you like it!
