Traditional and digital weighing scales

Cooking scales - be they digital or traditional - are a kitchen must-have for any committed cook. Without scales, you’re left to estimate ingredient quantities, and if you get the basics wrong it’s sure to reflect in the end result. Avert cooking chaos before it begins by investing in a good set of kitchen scales and the only choice you’ll need to make is whether to choose traditional or digital scales - a weighty decision indeed.

There are benefits to both: perhaps you enjoy the nostalgia of working with a baking scale that you used in your youth, and find it easier to measure out with traditional weights. If accuracy is key to your cooking success, however, you can’t get more precise than a digital scale that weighs to the .5ml.

Modern classics

Traditional baking scales make for a stylish kitchen addition, blending classic quality and design with modern convenience. We stock traditional scales from top brands like KitchenCraft, made from cast iron for that unmistakable olde-worlde charm. With a wooden base that won’t scratch your worktops and a stainless steel bowl (much easier to clean than brass - it can even go in the dishwasher), our traditional cooking scale gives classic quality a modern update. Weights are available separately, so you can ‘weigh up’ (groan) the benefits of opting for metric or imperial measures with your cooking scale.

Going digital

Digital kitchen scales are reliable and accurate, measuring right down to the ml - or even to .5 of a ml - and many have helpful features that make measuring out a tonne easier. Some baking scales are aquatronic - they can measure liquids as well as dry ingredients - and others have add-and-weigh functionality, which means you can weigh out each ingredient into the same bowl and just reset the weight in between. Digital food scales also let you switch between metric and imperial, depending on which you prefer, so even old family favourite recipes can be followed with ease and accuracy.

Make space

If space is at a premium in your kitchen, the smaller the cooking scale, the better. A digital scale tends to be significantly smaller than a traditional alternative, and the good news is that we’ve got a vast and varied range of digital weighing scales to choose from. Digital scales can be used on the countertop and are usually compact enough to be stowed in a drawer or cupboard after use. Of the digital options on offer, scales of the folding variety can save the most space. Ours fold down to just 7cm wide, freeing up more room where you need it most.

Power down

Take a weight off your mind by saving energy in the kitchen with eco-friendly digital food scales, designed to help you reduce your carbon footprint. Our wind-up digital scale is just one example - simply turn the dial to charge and activate the scale for up to two minutes. Need longer? Twist the dial again to recharge. Our battery-free folding scales work in a similar way: just open and close the scales a few times to generate enough kinetic energy for measuring out. Browse the range and you’ll find green cooking scales from top brands like Salter, too, powered by rechargeable batteries and crafted from 92% bamboo for extra eco cred.
