NewLine Space Saver Digital Glass Kitchen Scale
The NewLine Space Saver Digital Glass Kitchen Scale can be wall-mounted or placed on a counter top.
It has a large digital display that has a 24 hour clock and timer, and thermometer, as well as providing weight readings in both grams and ounces. It has a tare function, so you can place a plate on the scale, zero the weight out and then add food. The capacity is 3 kg (7 pounds). Food is weighed on the glass platform which is 6 inches in diameter. You can also unscrew the glass platform and clean it in the dishwasher if you want.
A benefit of this scale is that the reading displays above the food you are weighing, you don’t have to squint or nudge the food aside. This scale is great if you don’t have a lot of space on your kitchen counter, as it folds up so you can put it away in a drawer. The clock and thermometer are nice touches especially if you don’t have either in your kitchen.
