scale recommendation for weighing coffee
« on: July 26, 2015, 03:45:05 PM »
just curious if anyone out there knows of a small reliable kitchen scale to be used for weighing out coffee?

I have a Salter, that works reasonably well, but I can no longer find the same model and I want to give one as a gift.
The scale needs to read accurately to the nearest gram at the low range (15 - 100 g) and plus or minus 10 g at the heavier end (1000 - 2000g); thus weighing out coffee and water.
On top of that, I'd like the scale to be rather small because the kitchen it will go in is full.

I have searched through Amazon for a while, and all the scales I've looked at either have a small number of complaints about accuracy (who knows when to trust amazon reviews) or some other weird quirk.

I have the Eat Smart Precision scale. I have not ever scientifically tested it but it seems reasonably accurate at low and high weights.

I love my Escali Primo scale.  I bought it at King Arthur Flour (for about $20 several years ago) but think you can get it cheaper online.

We have the Oxo food scale and it has lasted for seven years with no trouble and only one battery change.
