Like previous reviews, these scales were fantastic at first. Then, they started playing up, and changing the battery has made no difference. Such a pity as the concept is great, but I have had to revert back to my old balance scales. They didn't even start off at 0 when resetting!

Salter Aquatronic Scales”
These scales have been marvellous for the last 2 years. They are so easy to use, look good and are easy to store. Suddenly they have a mind of their own and throw up random numbers which bear no relation to the amount placed on them, however gently. I've changed the battery to no avail. A few days ago I would absolutely have given these 5 stars but today they will have to go in the bin.

Agree with others- good to a point, then awful!”
Like several other reviewers we had been happy with these scales- light, slim, good feature to zero them when adding new ingredients etc, BUT then like others have said they have become extremely erratic. They now waver between weights when there is nothing on the scales at all, that is if you can persuade them to switch on at all.... have changed batteries twice, but there is clearly a problem. We have not had electronic scales before, but if like these they don't last that long, it seems better to stick to a manual scale which can't go wrong.

Unhappy with product”
by C J
Bought these scales as liked the fact it was a compact model, easy to store and can weigh both solids and liquids. Went for Salter as well known brand who offered a 15 year guarantee. Disappointed that the digital display failed after only 5 months of use. Display wouldn't go back to zero and then disappeared altogether even though tried two brand new batteries. Thankfully Lakeland offered a replacement but expected many years of use from this product.

Not what I had expected from Salter!”
by Mrs Davis
I bought these to replace a set of temperamental scales that were bought to replace a fabulous aqua set of Salter scales that I had for years. Confident with the Salter brand I went ahead, unfortunately these scales have not lived up to my previous much loved set. As others have stated display is difficult to read and you have to choose your bowl carefully. Scales now seem to defaulting to ml every time I turn them on and I keep getting error messages. I do like the slim profile but would prefer the design to be a little longer to enable use of larger bowls!

Having to edit my review as although these scales were fabulous when I first bought them, after a few months the weight values started to climb while the scales were sitting inactive. It is therefore useless at measuring any item in small quantities as it can have climbed ten or twenty grams in a few seconds. Not sure if there was a faulty batch as I see others have had similar problems. A shame as I really loved these scales at the beginning, very small, simple and effective.

I got these a couple of years ago to replace my Salter Max-View scales, which seemed to change display every time I turned my back. The Aquatronic were fine at first and I was pleased to have some accurate scales again but now they seem to up to the same tricks - I turn them on and it's anyone's guess what weight I am looking at. It doesn't seem to be the battery that's a problem. I am so disappointed, particularly as Salter has always been a good name. I won't be going with Salter again.

Great little scales”
I love these little scales, they work very well and I like the way you can zero them and add another ingredient as many times as you need to. Only one slight problem, when using a large bowl, you can't see the display so only good for up to a 2pt basin or desert plate size.

I bought these last year, but in the last few weeks every time I turn on the scales it said -1 then went up to -2 and -3. As well as that even when the scales were just sitting still, the weight kept going up and down e.g. from 20g to 230g! I changed the batteries twice in case it was the batteries but it was not it was simply faulty scales. I had to return them today due to these problems. I am very disappointed because I bought these for baking and they have been very good scales except for these problems.

Does the job perfectly”
by Mr Kong
This is my first ever electronic weighing scale and it certainly didn't disappoint. I've only used it for a week so far so I can't comment on its durability yet. Having said that with this I have been able to bake with more confidence knowing that my ingredients are weighed to the precision of 1g! This product, up to this point, has been faultless for me.

Fine until they broke”
Very happy with the product but after a few months the first set stopped working. Lakeland replaced them and sadly they have now stopped working. I have lost patience with this item and will buy a different set of scales.

I bought these because of the price, and frankly its cheap for a reason. Its very small, so often you can't actually see the weight of the product you are trying to weigh. You often have to push the buttons multiple times for it to respond. Also you can't actually turn it off - it turns itself off eventually but I found the batteries hardly lasted at all - presumably because of this. Would not recommend.

salter aquatronic scales”
this was fine at first but now all it does is come up with an error warning. I bought this as i have a similar poduct at work, this was not worth the money.

I bought these scales a few months ago and find them to be very good. Their slimline, lightweight nature means they store easily. I was concerned about the fact that the stainless steel weighing surface was flush with the white surface, but need not have worried, as it will show the correct weight of an item even if it is placed on the white surface only! Excellent. The display showing the weight/measure is fine but my only grumble would be that the symbol for the weight you are using (i.e 'g' for grammes) is a little small. Other than that I would recommend these scales as being excellent value and good at their job.

I bought these to measure tiny amounts of ingredients as I only have a large mechanical scales. They are good quality, small and compact, reassuringly weighty & exactly what I wanted. Thanks Lakeland, great products as always.

I bought these to replace my old scales which had given up on me. I use them every day (I cook and bake all the time, including bread) and they are great. I particulalry like the way that if you take the bowl/jug off (eg to pour a little out if you've added too much), the scales don't tare, rather they measure "negative" until the bowl is returned. That way you can pour some liquid out rather than having to try and awkwardly scoop the excess out.

Have your glass handy”
These are lovely scales, which I bought to replace my old Salter scales. But when you change from say grms to mls it is so small I cannot read it without my glasses on. If I had realised this I would have purchased the larger screen ones.
