[Amazon.ca] OXO 11-pound kitchen scale - $42

Pretty good deal on a highly-rated and (supposedly) well-designed kitchen scale. Too bad it went on sale long after I bought the Ozeri Escali. Ozeri is still cheaper now, but at $42, I would have probably gone for the Oxo.

The pull out display is really neat. I might jump on this since the 11 pound scale I bought from Wallyworld is a pile of junk.

Is this worth the $22 premium over a generic $20 kitchen scale?

Looks like a historic low at 42, beats the price watch I had at 60.

I've been using this one from Ozeri for years: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00416 ... UTF8&psc=1

20 bucks, over 64,000 reviews at 4.7/5 stars, and same weight capacity. Granted, it doesn't have the pull-out face (which is cool and handy at times) but guess it depends on how often you have big items on it that shadow it out.

“In 2018 we tested an older (and now discontinued) version of the OXO 11 Pound Stainless Steel Food Scale with Pull Out Display, and it just wasn’t very accurate. Readings were off by a whole gram or more, depending on where on the platform you placed the weight. It also failed to read anything 2 grams or lighter and wavered greatly in the 20-gram and 5-gram tests. We wouldn’t tolerate that kind of inaccuracy in a budget pick—much less something that costs $50. We may give the newer version a chance in a future retest, but unless it’s markedly improved from its predecessors, you’re much better off sticking with one of our more accurate and less costly picks.”

Ozeri scales continue to be the top scales.

Oxo doesn't stand a chance against an ozeri scale.

I'm a die hard Oxo fan and have almost everything Oxo in the kitchen. You can see my thread history where I support Oxo, and I can say that for kitchen scale go Ozeri or go home.

Any recommendations for a gram scale, to accurately measure small quantities, like yeast or salt?

You need a scale made for drug sellers, with an accuracy of 2 decimal points if you 0.x accuracy. Otherwise, one decimal place accuracy would be enough.

You don't need to buy a new scale for this. The scale reads right if you dump it all in at once, it doesn't read well if you sprinkle in small amounts.

I have my own chart for what 1/4, 1/2, whole tsp weighs by weighing perhaps a whole Tbl of yeast or salt. I convert the TBL measured amount and use the measuring spoons for recipes - I don't rely on the scale. For pretty much everything you cook, plus or minus a gram or two is not going to matter. [It does matters to ppl like Mr White though].

Any recommendations for a decent yet affordable coffee scale?
1. Buy cheap, buy twice
2. Don’t buy because it’s cheap. Buy it when needed or it brings convenience/happiness/better quality in life
3. Buy now think (regret/return) later
4. If the gut says don’t tell your lady, don’t!

For a small scale you can go to Walmart and look for the StarFrit mini scale. It will measure up to 100grams. I own this scale and it used 2 x AAA. I also have the larger one that takes a 9v battery which works for me as I can swap out the digital multimeter/smoke alarm batteries which use 9v tho I am looking for one that takes 2xAA as I have lots of those around.

Here are the two that I own of which I am referring to.

I don't recall seeing this back a few years ago so it must be a new. If they had the 17oz/500g model back then in the same or close to the 100g model size I would have gotten that. That would be more handy when making dehydrated meals or measuring items at the bulkbarn/supermarket. I got my 100g scale originally so that I can measure out my dehydrated veggies and meats when I'm out hiking so I don't have to package single portion sizes each time when I'm running low on bags or more time/effort in making meal packs when I can portion out 4-5 servings per bag and add/subtract how much I want to add to a meal knowing how much I have left. Also for when I'm out fishing I tend to find a lot of tackle and weights so I like to weigh the weighs so I know how heavy it is and if I want to buy that weight heft I know how heavy it is when I'm shopping for it.
