The OXO good grips food scale with pull-out display is one of my top 5 picks when it comes to electronic kitchen food scales. You can see the whole list on the electronic kitchen scales reviews page.
This is a scale that is about as versatile as it comes, and with the vastly reduced price currently available there has never been a better time to buy.
Or continue reading for our own verdict…
What we have here is a food scale that allows us to weigh even if it means that we have a very large receptacle for our ingredients.
This is often a problem when we realize that we cannot actually see the display because of the size of the container.
As you can see from the image the OXO good grips food scale circumnavigates the problem really rather simply, and it is surprising that other companies have not also released scales with this nifty feature. We get lots of other features that make this just about the most versatile option currently available.
OXO Food Scale Features
We get a simple but bright display that shows us how much more weight can be added before capacity is reached.
A tare function to set to zero once we place our container on the scale (very handy).
Batteries included as standard.
Weighing begins at an incredibly low figure and goes all the way up to 11 lbs.
One of the best features apart from the pull-out display is the fact that it is so slim. We can store the OXO food scale in a very small space so it is perfect for the rather cramped kitchen. The stainless steel top means that it is extremely durable as well as very easy to clean so we spend minimal time after use restoring it to an “out of the box” look.
The designer style means that it looks like a very expensive item without it being the case and friends and family will think that you have turned professional when the see this in the Kitchen. As long as your cooking is up to the job of course!
Although the OXO good grips kitchen food scale price is not the lowest, the slight extra we pay is certainly worth it for the extra functionality that we get. If you like to use large bowls or plates to weigh relatively large amounts of ingredients then this is definitely the scale for you. I think it is just about perfect for most kitchens and it is certainly the most versatile one out of my top picks when it comes to the best electronic kitchen scales.
