Heston Blumenthal Precision Kitchen Cooking Scales by Salter : Satisfying

Nice looking scales easy to clean shame it’s only accurate to 0. 5 of a gram as my old ones were accurate to 0. 1 of a gram overall very pleased and has a long guarantee.

Has become a natural part of my daily cooking.

If you move the bowl out of the scale, and return within 10 seconds will remember the weight. Good quality and extremely precise, easy to use.

It’s great to have accurate scales. Easy to use and variable weight systems.

Very reliable, reasonable price. Little disappointed at the small size of the plate on which to put bowls, etc. But the extra large readout screen more than compensates for that. It also takes standard batteries. My last one took cr2032 ‘penny cell’ batteries, which were more difficult to find, didn’t last as long, and took an age to install.

I wanted a fairly precise kitchen scale to replace my old, inaccurate one. I chose this scale despite some terrible reviews because it was on sale. The price was significantly reduced so i decided to take a chance. As far as i can tell the scale is very precise. I tested it with coins and the measurement was accurate every time, even when using the add & weigh feature. The measurements fluctuated only when whatever i was weighing was not centered on the weighing platform, which is normal. The buttons are a bit rigid. Hopefully this means also sturdy.

Initially purchased a cheaper set of scales which i were unreliable and the display dimmed to quickly which made them hard to read. My only wish is that the weighing area was a little bigger and would then give 5 🌟.

Fabulous scales, nice and small, fits great on my workspace.

    Fantastic scales, high precision, easy to use and clean, looks good enough to leave out.

    The scale works well, just sometimes it is a bit slow, but good for the value.

    Decent scales but i’ve paid for the name – that’s clear for me to see although i’m not sure why i did?they work fine – they look pretty cool too. But a slightly more thorough look reveals some imperfect quality/assembly standards which shouldn’t be there on a product demanding a premium price tag.

    Good set of scales, very good resolution in the measurements. My last set of salter scales would only go up or down in steps of 2 grams, these measure in steps of 0. Only downside is the size, this can weigh material up to 5kg, but you can barely fit a run of the mill breakfast bowl on the measuring plate. Not had any reason to try and clean up a mess on it yet, plate wipes clean easily but i suspect the buttons could be a problem if they got anything wet on them.

    Very accurate and easy to use.

    Nice and small saves worktop space. 5g increments improves accuracy.

    Excellent purchase , great to use and can be for liquid and weight measurements.

    Excellent quality, very easy to use. I hope it’s accurate: certainly better than my old scales in terms of reaction time.

    Heston Blumenthal Precision Kitchen Cooking Scales by Salter, Weigh Food up to 5kg Within 0.5g Accuracy, Digital Display, Measure in Metric/Imperial Weight, 15yr Guarantee – Black/Silver

    Also takes 3x aaa batteries which is more practical than having to buy cr2032 specifically as with so many other scales.

    Worth every penny, precise and great quality.

    Brilliant set of scales with very visible display. Incredibly handy to be able to quickly flick between metric and imperial measurements. Measuring to the nearest 1/2 gram has been very useful for some more delicate recipes.

    I used the scale for measuring coffee. The scale was not as accurate as stated. 5g -1g out depending on where you placed things. There was also a bit to much plastic for my liking. I suppose for £20 it’s not bad.

    It’s easy to store and easy to read.

    These are the best small kitchen scales i’ve used. They are stable and accurate, with a very bright and clear display. The zero and on/off buttons are separate, which makes it easier to switch them off quickly. I also like that they use aaa batteries, rather than the little button batteries that most of these scales use. With my last scales i was forever having to change the battery, but these last longer and as they are aaa, you can use rechargeables if you wish. They’re a bit more expensive than most, but well worth it if you use them regularly.

    Really pleased with the scales for the price. Sleek design, easy to use and clean.

    Can’t fault this product absolutely brilliant.

    Easy to use and doesn’t take much space. Accurate enough for what i need. Pleased with my purchase :).

    The different units come in so useful. We use these scales several times a day.

    Neat clean functional weighing scales. Very easy to use very easy to change units and easy to zero.

    I’m at slimming world and this is great for measuring small amounts accurately. Also ideal for baking purposes. Has grams, pounds, ounces and measures fluid mls.

    These are precise and surprisingly easy to use.

    I have owned a few salters in my time. This has to be one of the best. The pros:- bold and backlit lettering, makes getting your readings easier- triple aaa batteries means the batteries last longer- minus value readings makes it easier to track weight, for those doing iifym that means after you zero your banana, you can put the peels on the scale and get an exact reading of what the actual weight of your banana was. – aestheticsthe cons:-whilst the scale gives micro values, it only gives. 5 values, nothing else in-between.

    Excellent, great range of weights and compact so easy to store away in the kitchen.

    Decent set of scales, accurate, fairly robust and compact enough to keep with me either in my bag or as part of my baking kit. I use them on a commercial basis which i would define as adequate however these are a very good, reliable set of scales for use at home and for smaller projects. My only small criticism is there are too many knooks and crannies for it to be ‘easy’ to clean but as a chef, i do tend to fling a bit of flour and stuff around when i cook.

    Bought this to replace an older salter aquatronic scale with failing buttons. The display is great and easy to read even with a large vessel on the scales. The reaction time is ok – not as quick as the previous salter, but much quicker than the no-name high precision scales we use for very small quantities. The accuracy is not fantastic below an ounce (25g) at least – repeated weighing of the same item can result in variations of +/- a gram. This doesn’t bother me as i have high precision scales for that, but could be better.

    After spending considerable time looking at all the specifications for various scales, i decided to go for the heston blumenyhal scales. It was a good choice and my wife and i are very well satisfied and would recommend it. A 15 year guarantee these days says a lot.
