I love my Weight Watcher scale as it weighs lbs, oz, and grams. I'm getting pretty good at making the transition to grams -- even in my recipes. I weight just about everything.

Yes, I have an Escali digital scale. I like that it has a very low profile, although mine is solar yellow so I can't misplace it. I like that I can switch back and forth from ounces to grams. My scale is always on the counter.

Yes, I purchased the Escali brand from Amazon a couple of years ago after my first scale died. It weighs in grams, ounces or pounds and ounces. I can zero out anything, which helps when building a plate or sandwich. I recently had to change out the AA batteries which was super easy. Lately, I've noticed digital scales for cheaper prices, but if this one keeps up like it has, I won't need to worry about getting another one for uite a while.

I just got a digital scale at Wal-Mart When I was Christmas shopping. LOL. It was my reward for losing 15 lbs. I really like it. It weighs lbs-oz-grams-Kilograms, up to 11 lbs. Also has the Tare feature. Before, I had a little spring postage scale I got years ago. The digital is so-o-o much better. Oh, the brand is Taylor, the least expensive model they had! :)

I've used Terraillon kitchen scales for years. You can choose either ounce or gram measurements (both are part of the scale). These scales have a tare function which allows you to weigh a container, ingredient, and leave those on the scale and zero it out (tare) and add another ingredient. The Terraillon scale I currently use measures up to 5 pounds. I have an Oxo scale with a pull out display that I use for baking; it measures up to 11 pounds and has ounce/gram measurements and a tare function.

I have a neat little scale from Costco that's digital. It has a glass top and converts to both grams and oz. I love it! I've had both and won't go back to non-digital. The glass is great because it's easy to clean and disinfect. I like that it's one piece and flat so it stores super easy. Another selling point is to make sure it takes regular batteries, not those expensive specialized button cell batteries. Hope this helps!

In past years I invested in a digital scale and it really helped. Once I got the hang of it, I didn't need it anymore. But! If there comes a time when measuring is significant I'll pull it off the shelf for sure.

I've been using a Taylor for a while, but I could never weigh anything with the microwave on...it would make the numbers jump all over the place. Then it got wet, and I thought it had died, so I did some research on the Internet and got an EatSmart.

Even though the Taylor started working when it dried out, I have been using the EatSmart...since it works just fine when the microwave is on. Got it at Amazon.com for $25.

www.amazon.com/EatSmart-Precision-Digital-
Kitchen-Silver/dp/B001N07KUE/ref=lp_28
9787_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1387788
120&sr=1-1


The thing I like best about the EatSmart is the fact it stays on for 3 minutes before turning itself off. I was always having to reweigh things because the Taylor would turn off too quickly. BUT, you can also turn it off manually just by holding the button down for a second or so. It weighs in grams, kg, oz and lbs. It has the tare (zero out) feature also. It also uses plain old AAA batteries instead of those flat ones that are sometimes hard to find.

As some others have said, I couldn't live without it. I weigh everything I eat, and also weigh ingredients for cooking.

Put your plate/bowl on and zero it out. Add the food you're going to eat, zero it out. Add your condiment... I could never go back to measuring with cups and spoons!

You bet - all the time.

It's an Eat Smart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale and was pretty inexpensive. It weighs in ounces, grams, and pounds, and it's very accurate - gives tare weights, too. Along with tracking, that's what keeps my weight down. I could never hope to rely on my appetite - it's still voracious at this point (and I think it always will be!)

I have the plate thingy on the fridge so my husband sees 2 veges on the plate.
and the portion size is so the food doesn't touch,
and measuring system called Life Size, (http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/10/08/diet-system-measures-food-portions-not-calories/)
these tools help me because my husband and I both cook and serve each others, this way my plate is much more in control than what his is.............

I have a very basic model from Walmart that only weighs up to 1 pound. It works for what I use it for, though- portioning large trays of beef or chicken, portioning chopped veggies, weighing the odd slice of cheese here and there.

I use a Salter digital scale that weighs up to 11 pounds. My mom gave it to me over 10 years ago, and it has been used and abused like crazy. I've needed to put in new batteries twice. It was about $50 then--a bit pricey--but it's so reliable. It has a base that's about 6" x 6", so when I am canning, it holds large amounts.

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

I have a little Terrailllon scale that I got about 6 years ago as a gift. I just love it. It works well and doesn't take up much space in my little kitchen.

My husband and I used to have this Price-Is-Right type routine of guestimating how many ounces of chicken we were eating. LOL With everything else, I tried to just divide things into even pieces and do the math.

I'm proud to say that we are now happy owners of a food scale! I used a 20% coupon at Bed Bath & Beyond and we got a Cuisinart scale that converts to several different measurements and has a removeable cutting board. I even accidentally spilled water on the display and it's totally fine! (This is the one: http://www.cuisinart.com/products/kitchen_accessories/scales/kml-9.html) I love this thing!!

Another handy tool I purchased that day were these little Oxo liquid measuring beakers. They came in a set of 4 different sizes (1tsp to 2oz) and they nest inside one another. (http://www.oxo.com/p-1206-4-piece-mini-measuring-beaker-set.aspx) These are AMAZING for measuring out random things that you use less than a 1/4c of, like coffee creamer, alcohol, olive oil, or pancake syrup.

I figure, if you're going to measure, might as well make it fun and easy!



God made me and He doesn't make junk.

I have a fairly cheap digital one, I think I got it at Wal-Mart. I weigh most things I eat in grams, because I find that to be the most accurate for counting calories (it will swap between grams & ounces by pushing a button, if what I want to track needs ounces)

I didn't want to pay a lot for a food scale, so just bought a cheap one. But once you figure out how things look, or have a tracker, or list your foods, you kinda don't need the scale any more.
The best thing is to constantly write down what you are & how many carbs, or calories it is. I just really don't do any starch carbs unless it's bean-less than 1/2 or 1/4 cup. I totally gave up potatoes, but still like yams. Have low blood sugar so my body has a hard time processing pasta. I really don't do that too often. I sometimes substitute squash or zucchini for pasta. it works.

i have a little scale from weight watchers . Use it some times cheese or something like that. emoticon

I started a month ago , but I didn't go nowhere.
Why? I am finding everything I do tiresome and very difficult. I am trying to continue and get somewhere with my fight for a better life. My health has been going down in the last 5 years. I am 73 and recently I am experiencing quite a bit of pain with this injury of a sciatic nerve. Of course that has nothing to do with my continued to eat things are not beneficial for me. I believe depression is the cause of wanting more sweets, is my weakne

sometimes ....I use it when I am eating something that I have questions about like a large piece of fish or something that is fried and I can have it but only a certain weight. Or when I am making a sandwich and need a particular amount of meat. I both digital and analog. emoticon

I just used mine for the first time today! I bought a Food Network one at Kohl's (checked but it's not on their website), using a coupon and my Black Friday Kohl's cash. Otherwise it would have been too spendy!

So far, it seems pretty easy to use and really helpful.

I am using a uzera, choose this one bc i don't only have oz and pound, i also can choose gram and kg (european measurements). It also has tara and time function (but i still cannot figure out why i need a timer function for a scale *lol*) ^^ It also is easy to use, in one piece and flat, no hustle to store another bulgy thing in my kitchen (i even can just put it behind my kitchen-tool-rod and done).
How else you wanna measure and track all your food (every single bite) if not with a scale, i would be 100% screwed. ;o)

I have one we bought about 4 years ago, not sure the brand, but it's pretty basic - on/off, and tare function.

I love using a food scale because it makes measuring things like yogurt, salad dressing, peanut butter, etc., much, much easier - less messy, fewer things to wash since I can weigh it directly in the bowl or on the food I'm planning to eat. Rather than measure out the dressing and then try to "drizzle" it out of the tablespoon measuring spoon, I just plunk the whole salad on the scale, zero it out, and squirt dressing directly from the bottle onto the salad.

I also use it for weighing homemade pizza crust and bread to make sure I'm making pizzas with the same amount of crust and loaves of bread equally sized (helps with baking time).

And the original reason we bought it - weighing out doses of Miralax for my son. Between the ages of 4 months and 3 years, he took it almost daily at the advice of a pediatric gastroenterologist, and the dose for a baby is so small, it's much better to just weigh it in grams.

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

I bought a basic electronic one at Walmart. There is not a brand name but the model # is: EK5055. I love it! There are 3 buttons: on/off, unit and Z/T. I use my own plate, push a button and it automatically calculates the plate weight and resets the food weight to "0."

I am at work so don't know the brand of my scale, but it has the TARE feature, which makes it so easy to use. I bought it at Target and it was around $30. Even though I have gotten pretty good at eyeballing measures, I like to use the scale to be sure and it makes me more mindful about my food selection and preparation. I have also begun to measure baking ingredients for more accuracy.

Yes, I do use a food scale. I find it a tad less annoying to weigh an ounce of potato chips than to count out the chips and size of chip can really matter too. The scale I use is an Escali 136DK apparently.

My husband's brother put on his christmas list one year that he wanted a food scale and this is the one I picked out to give him and then I bought myself one. Have had it for a number of years, apparently since March 2010, according to my Amazon account history. I do like it and have never had a problem with it. I love the tear feature, in that I just stick a bag of pasta on the scale, flip it to zero, then I put however much pasta in my pan, then I can see the difference in what the starting weight was, verses after what I added to my boiling water. I would highly recommend it. Yes, I know it isn't the cheapest. I used to use a cheap plastic scale and I like this so much better.
