Lakeland Precision Flat Digital Kitchen Weighing Scale 2 "Don't buy unless you have a good memory!" Mrs BOYES 07 March 2018 I agree with many of the reviews posted here. The scales auto switch off far too quickly and you have to try and remember every time you add an ingredient what the weight was before as the scale may turn itself off. They are not fit for purpose. I love the look but not the functionality. A note from the team Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback on the scales. I'm sorry that you'd been disappointed with the amount of time that the weight is shown on the display before it turns off. I've had a look and can see that after approximately 1 minute it will turn off to preserve the life of the battery. I'll be in touch shortly to help.
