I was just at Bed, Bath and Beyond and saw several choices between 12 and 40 dollars. They did have the Biggest Loser one but I did not note the price.

I have the same one as Kclark. It was $20 but I used a coupon. It has both of the features you mentioned. It works great and I change the battery every 6 months or so.

I don't think you need a fancy scale with bells and whistles. An electronic scale that measures to the gram or 1/10th ounce should be more than adequate.

Mine is a Biggest Loser scale I got at Bed Bath & Beyond. It has the tare function and it measures down to 1/10th of oz and gets specific. I think it was like $12-$15. I love it!

the one we have is old (DH bought it before we moved in together in the 90s), but it works fine. It's not electronic, just a very basic scale. The base can be turned to -0- it out, so it has it's on version of tare weight.

I don't think you really need to spend a lot to get a decent scale.

I have a Taylor food scale. It measures to 1/10th ounce and cost about $12. You don't need more than that.

good luck .

I recently had to replace mine and I got a good one at Target. I prefer the electronic scale that can measure in either ounces or grams. The tare function is a must.

I'm ready to recommit to my weight loss journey. I want to buy a very good food scale that will help me accomplish my goals. Which brand? Which store should I look for a good quality food scale? I hear of two features that are good to have on your food scale -- an auto-off feature and tare function (able to reset the weight as ingredients are added). Any other important features to have? Thanks for your help as I do my research. I want something of quality and worth the money. Thanks!!
