Re:New Scale - 2009/01/17 09:46 Look for the features you want. My first scale which I have just replaced after 5 years (and a lot of abuse!) was flat, so I had to measure my oils for soap in to the clear plastic bowl that came with it and then dump it into the soap pot - the soap pot would have covered the read-out. So my new scale is slanted where the read out is and wow! what a time saver! You will also want the tare feature so you won't have to do the math every time you add an ingredient. Lastly make sure you don't shortchange yourself on the weight capacity. You might want to do bigger batches some day. I would also think that the smaller the batch the more precise you need to be with your measurements, so a really cheap kitchen scale probably won't be adequate. I like the removable stainless steel tray - easier to keep clean. I don't know anything about postal scales - are they less expensive? They are very precise so if you've seen a good price on one, grab it! Just my 2c! Denise
