I have two digital scales--the older one is an Eat Smart brand and the newer one is an Ozeri brand. I believe both were purchased from Amazon and weren't that expensive. They are both very similar and you can set them for grams, ounces, etc. I like the fact that you can put your bowl on them and reset as you add ingredients so that you can weigh each item as you add it to your salad, etc. I could not live without a digital scale. The first one came with a booklet that explained how to figure calories per gram for any item weighed. For a math nerd like I am it was great.

I have a digital saltzer and it's really handy (also good for weighing mail too). I also have a big dial one, old fashion kind that I got at a resale shop for a dollar i think. I don't use it as much anymore but that could be an option if you are looking for price or just want to try using something inexpensive first.

I have a small one, that is older, but it sure helps when I do not the correct oz. I don't know what I would do without it.

It makes it a whole lot easier to make sure your serving size is right, especially for meat and things you can really put in a measuring cup. emoticon emoticon I love mine!

I purchased a digital scale from Wal-Mart for around $20 and it works great. I'm really glad I got one that does tare(weighs bowl then you put your food and it gives you only the weight of the food.)

I have a Salter model no. 2001. I love it! It's small and does both grams and ounces. The battery lasts a long time before it needs changing. I've had it for 5 years and haven't had a single problem with it. This is a great brand.

Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

DO IT BECAUSE YOU CAN!!

The number on the scale does not define you. The love in your heart, does.

I am thinking of getting a food scale and am wondering if the team can recommend a good one that isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg.
Thank you
