Lakeland Wind-Up Digital Kitchen Scale 4 "Wind up scales" Mrs Voisey 30 October 2018 I decided to leave reviewing this item for as long as possible because I wanted to give it a fair review. It took a few uses to get used to the scales, which made me think there was a problem with them.. there wasn't! The scales are very sensitive and so need to be placed on a level surface. Give each ingredient chance to settle to get a correct reading, this was where I went wrong. Now I am used to them, I'm glad I bought them. Batteries for normal digital scales are quite expensive so that will be a saving. Easy enough to use now I'm used to them. A note from the team Thank you for your review. I'm delighted the scales are working well for you!
