try local healthstore, or supermarket or even the internet.

i have one that measures to grams- i think it was designed to weigh letters to see how much stamping they need

Canadian Tire has everything...kind of like Meijer's in the midwest but without the groceries...

Look at a kitchen/bath type store like Linens and Things or Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They usually have a range of different kinds in the cooking section. I got a digital one that reads in English (lbs/ounces) or metric (g/kg) and can be tared. It looks and functions like a lab balance and that's why I liked it :)

raniali, the third one doesn't look too bad. But I think I'll go with the one you have just because there is free shipping. Are you satisfied with it? I like that it is a little box on top but I wish it was digital.

i'm satisfied. it's a basic scale. i used to think that digital was better (that's because I am a chemist and need to be accurate) .. but with my food, analog is enough.

I got mine from Williams Sonoma, and it's digital with the ability to zero the weight, which is a very useful feature when measuring things in containers. Think it cost $70.

Btw, I got my cheap 6$cdn plastic scale from Canadian Tire. The thing works like a charm.

Bump.

My scale sucks. I got it at Wal-Mart, and it has always worked okay, but never great, and now it is getting a little senile.

What scales are people happy with? I like digital with a tare function, plus grams (+/- 1 would be nice) and ounces. The big thing that pisses me off about my current one is that it has a battery saver feature that turns it off automatically, and it cannot be disabled. Any suggestions?
