Recently purchased these when on offer so even better. The display is clear and easy to see, thought the bowl may have been too big at first but its good for bigger amounts. Weighing is very accurate. Have used the timer to see how it works which was accurate. I recommend these to anyone that bakes a lot

In addition to the other good features mentioned elsewhere, I thought it worth pointing out that any bowl can be used instead of the one provided, should the size not be suitable for the task. I love that I can use an enormous bowl and still see the display.

We're great until...”
Unfortunately these just broke I only got them for Xmas last yr and now the screen has totally packed in and doesn't display the numbers properly its unreadable. Whilst they worked they were great but now they are useless! Big shame as I've now had to go back to my old mechanical scales which are hardly accurate!

Great scale, annoying auto shut down”
These are nice scales, with an easy to see/read display. Easy to tare and switch units. They automatically turn off after a fixed time, even if you are in the middle of using them. Baking with 2 small children means things take some time and it is VERY annoying for the scales to turn themselves off mid weigh especially as they don't remember the last weight if they have turned off.

After years of having tiny flat scales I decided to go for these ones as I also needed a bowl. They look so good that I leave them on the worktop and it saves going to pick them up every time I need them. Like other reviewers said it is a pity they don't come with a battery and it is difficult to get it in too. I fear the time when I have to change it. The material of the bowl is not very good so I only use it to weigh, not to mix or anything. I don't use the time or the thermometer but they can be nice features for some people. All in all I am quite happy but some improvements would be nice!

Nice scale but batteries not included”
Pleased with the scales. Nice and light. The bowl fits over the scales for storage. Why not include batteries? So disappointing to receive an item and not be able to use it immediately as you have no batteries.

I was looking for a replacement set of scales as the ones I had were a pain to use. I saw these advertised on offer and thought nothing to lose. Well I'm glad a bought a set as they are excellent, the bowl is easy to wipe clean and the display is large and clear. If you are looking for a new set of kitchen scales at a sensible price then you cannot go wrong.

These scales are fantastic to used. Easy to used with very clear read out and 1g increments so prefect for accurate measuring. Really nice sized bowl that compacts down nicely for storage.

Having difficulty reading my old scales, somehow a shadow was always in the way making correct weight reading hard. Bought these and very pleased with them, but really Wish I'd shopped around!!!!

I purchased this product as a present for my mother. It arrived on time and it is a fantastic product and has a range of fantastic features. Again Lakeland comes in at 1st place. Deserves more than 5 stars.

Very useful kitchen item”
by Elaine Mitchell
I purchased these scales several months ago and find them extremely handy, the timer is especially useful. The only problem I find is that I need one hand to move the base and another to hold the bowl. It would be a good idea if the bowl could be inverted when not in use (possibly sit on a little lip) for easy one handed movement

Decent scales, but the quality of materials seems cheap.”
Maybe I'm just being picky, but for the price I would have expected a heavier grade of stainless steel being used for the product. When compared to the bowl of a well known kitchen mixer, the quality of the metal just doesn't measure up. As a result, the base seems very light weight and flimsy, with the electronics beneath not very well sealed or protected. It somehow reminds me of a cheaply made child's toy. This is the first Lakeland product that I've purchased and I was expecting a higher standard of quality and construction. However, the scales do work well and for that I am pleased.

Easy to Use”
by Mrs Kennedy
I was fed up of my old scales which only measured in imperial units. I am so pleased that I bought these! Easy to use, clean and store - and very accurate.

stainless digital scales”
Received today my new scales -I agree with the other customer that to open the battery compartment is very difficult, even had to ask "hubby" to show me how - now have to go to our local store to get the required battery. Why wasn't a sealed battery supplied along with the scales? Not a lot to ask!! (everything else I have had from Lakeland has been great so not too much of a winge)

These are not for arthritic hands!”
by Pippa Tremlett
Tried for 30 minutes to get a battery in and just could not manage it! Why anyone today sells products that need batteries installed is beyond me. The following day, my big sis' called to visit and with a great deal of effort eventually managed to install a battery into my new scales: thus we were able to measure our rice for dinner. Results? Rather pleased with these scales, particularly like the fact that these also have nice clear imperial measurements as an option for those like me who cannot get on with metric. These scales are ideal for the small amount of goodies I bake and make - could even use a saucepan as an option for when I use liquids for top of stove. (Cold saucepan!) Clean, neat, tidy - ideal for shortage of space on work-top. A very happy replacement for redundant 40 year sadly old worn out scales.

This review is for an older version of this product
Have been looking around for some new scales that can be used both metric and imperial. These are nice and light and are superb. The only downside but I can put up with these are the bowl is very much like a dog's bowl and it fastens well over the scales such that you could actually drop the scales out of the cupboard. I agree with one other it would have been good to have had a lip for easy pouring but I DO LIKE THEM

Lakeland digital scales”
by Mrs MURGATROYD
Absolutely superb. Unlike a previous customer I managed to fit the battery fairly easily...I see her point but don't let it put you off, it's just those 9V batteries. You can turn the bowl upside down to cover the scales when not in use and the digital extra timer is useful if you don't have one on your oven. They are such a good price; my Salter digital scales broke after 6 years - Lakeland sorted it straight away with no fuss and with part of the refund I bought these instead. They are just as good as my Salter but much cheaper. Highly recommended.

Brilliant! Kitchen scales worthy of the name - smart looking, accurate to 1g, so easy to read, really decent bowl, clear choice of grams or ounces. A pleasure to use - wish I had found them long ago! Only one small concern: storing the bowl upturned over the scales could result in the scales being pulled off the worktop or cupboard shelf by anyone unaware that they are underneath.

Don't forget the battery!”
by Mrs Adams
Great scales, very happy with them, but as they don't have a battery fitted when they are delivered, it would be useful if there was something slightly more emphatic in the description than 'Requires 1 x 9V. battery' to remind buyers to get a battery too.
