Lakeland Battery-Free Foldable Kitchen Scales

Product number: 32883

We’ve come a long way since the cast iron balance scales of old, with clever and compact battery-powered digital scales taking their place. But perhaps it’s time to go a step further. Because let’s be honest, batteries aren’t exactly the easiest things to dispose of. And, however flat and compact your electric weighing scales are, they still take up far too much room in the drawer. With our Battery-Free Foldable Scales, you can enjoy all the precision-weighing benefits of digital scales in a far more eco-friendly way, and without cluttering up your cupboards.

No more batteries

Using kinetic energy which is converted into electricity, the scales are completely battery-free, meaning no more running around the house to find a spare battery when all you want to do is bake your lemon drizzle in peace. It also means they’re more environmentally friendly, as you don’t have to dispose of any toxic batteries when they run out. To give them enough power to weigh your ingredients, you just open the arms, close them and then open them again.

Space-saving

Folding to just 7cm wide, these scales are easily small enough to slide in amongst the cutlery when they’re not in use, freeing up some valuable cupboard space where your old scales used to live. And don’t let the compact folding design fool you: capable of weighing ingredients in any household bowl, large or small, all you have to do is open them a little wider to fit larger bowls or bring them closer together again for smaller ones.

Easy to use

To generate the energy to use them, all it takes is a quick open-close-open of the scales, and you’ll have enough energy to get weighing. And so you don’t have to dirty too many bowls and jugs, they can weigh both solid and liquid ingredients, using grams, ounces and millilitres, with a tare function for easily setting your scales back to zero.

"Needs more refinement"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Thought the rechargeable battery was a great idea but no matter how much I charge it the scales don't do more than one add and there is a delay in the scales that you can add another 10g before it properly registers. I've lost all confidence in the product for accuracy and having to recharge between ingredients when cake making wastes time.

"Great idea but not great functionality"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Loved the idea of not having to replace batteries but a few issues leave these scales lacking. Firstly, they don’t last long enough once you have charged them up so often cut out mid measure. Secondly, they take ages to register the mass so we often end up putting far too much in, or if we go slowly, they run out of juice (see first point). Lastly it is really difficult to get your bowl into the correct position on the top so I’m never sure if I’m actually measuring accurately. I’ve tried to make them work as I love the concept but I have finally conceded I need to buy a different set.

"Not impressed"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

I bought this thinking what a great idea,as someone else said no batteries. It says in the description just open and close, this makes it sound like you do that once and it's fully working, but it doesn't last long, so you are lost if half way through weighing various items together. Also doesn't weigh fl ounces but Mls. And not very balanced as the weight changes. I have had lots of great products from lakeland but this isn't 1

"Unimpressed"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Bought these scales in April as my other kitchen scales need new batteries all the time. Unimpressed with the weighing mechanism difficult to get them to “tare” to add items Find them wobbly and it’s difficult to try and center any bowl . The charge runs out quickly sometimes even during weighing. If I lived closer to Lakeland I would return them as I find them unreliable and inaccurate to weigh flour sugar etc etc. Have gone back to my “old scales “

"A bit fiddly"

star star star_border star_border star_border

I have had these scales for about two years and bought them because my previous ones kept running out of battery power. However I find that if you are weighing several items the power will run out mid way through. Also it is sometimes difficult to get an accurate reading, fiddly to change measurements and reset Tare. I am now so frustrated with them that I am giving up and replacing them!
