The Etekcity Food Scale sells for $10 on Amazon

Weighing your options on the kitchen scale? No need — we’ve found a winner. If you already use one, you know how important a scale is to a well-stocked kitchen. For meal prep, accurate recipe measurements, and more, a kitchen scale is essential.

The Etekcity Kitchen Scale is consistently praised by critics — it has nearly 86,000 five-star reviews! And now it’s on sale for just $10 (down from $14).

A good kitchen scale is more accurate than a measuring cup and this is important for difficult recipes like chocolate souffle. There are even serious coffee drinkers who measure their beans by weight. I am just saying’.

Using a scale means less measuring cups and spoons to clean up and less work is always a good idea. Kitchen scales are also great for portion control — weighing your food can help you keep calories in check. They also instantly convert measurements (from ounces to grams, say).

This checks all the boxes. It is compact and slim so it fits easily in a drawer or cabinet. And the size is just right — small enough that it won’t overpower the counter if you choose to leave it out, but big enough to fit on a dinner plate.

It measures pounds, ounces, grams, milliliters and fluid ounces. The stainless steel surface looks cool and is easy to clean. Simply press the ‘unweight’ button to remove the weight of any bowl or plate you choose to use. And the auto-off feature means you don’t have to press a button with your fingers covered in breadcrumbs.

Says one five-star reviewer: “The large platform on this scale makes it much more useful than most kitchen scales. I can use the larger mixing bowl on it and still read the screen. I keep it handy for ease of use and it allows me to avoid measuring cups that will need to be washed. I like to bake my own bread and this scale allows me to measure flour with great accuracy in grams. The scale has a range up to about 10 pounds, so it can be used with heavy glass or ceramic bowls. I use it almost every day and it has worked flawlessly for 11 months on the original batteries.”
