Etekcity 0.1g Food Kitchen Scale

by Etekcity
What We like

Our inexpensive food scale has the most features and most accuracy compared to other kitchen scales that we tested. But its buttons are difficult to press, its battery compartment is hard to reach, and the switch you operate it is controlled by buttons on its underside, which means you have to bend down or risk putting your finger on the scale.
