Accurate digital scales that are easy to program and use are a must-have in the kitchen. If you enjoy cooking, you'll know that sometimes it's important to measure out the exact amount of ingredients in a recipe. Our experts use calibrated equipment to test electronic kitchen scales to tell you which ones are precise. 

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.

    Performance score

    Expand to view more details.

    We use calibrated weights to test accuracy in 1g and 10g increments, and at maximum capacity, which makes up 75% of the performance score. Tare performance (reset to zero) makes up the remainder.

    Ease of use consists of ease of reading the measurement on the display (including when the bowl is in position), ease of using the controls (tare, standby and memory) and ease of cleaning.
