Over the past year, I have been focusing more on losing weight. While I have been excerising more and trying to make healthier food choices, I still have some issues with portion sizes. For this reason, I have been focusing more on trying to find a quality kitchen scale. One of the issues I have been having lately is that it is really hard to find a quality scale that doesn't require a smartphone to use all its features. Maybe I'm crazy but I really don't want to have to deal with my iPhone in the kitchen. It seems a bit silly to me. As I was on my search for a quality kitchen scale, I was approached by EatSmart to review one of their latest kitchen scales – the EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale!
EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale: What is It
Looking for an easy to use, very accurate kitchen scale? With many people trying to lose weight, a kitchen scale is one of the best ways to monitor calories and make sure you are getting in the proper amount of calories each day. With the EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale, you have a extremely precise scale, measuring to the nearest .05 or 1 gram. With the easy to use TARE feature, backlit buttons, stainless steel design, compactness, and large weighing surface, you really can't go wrong with this EatSmart scale!
EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale: Overall
Out of all the scales I have tried recently, this has to be one of the most user friendly out there. It is highly accurate, has large buttons, and allows you to move between various units (ounces, pounds, grams, and kilograms). For baking, this is especially important, since you want as much accuracy as possible. As well, the scale itself can hold up to 15 pounds, allowing you to do even larger projects on this scale. What I also love is that the scale itself is very easy to tare. Many scales make you do tricks, but all you have to do is touch the one button for a few seconds with an empty bowl to tare, and you are good to go! With its great look, ease to use features, and the useful calorie counting booklet, I can highly recommend the EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale. Based on my own experience with this scale, I am happy to give it an A rating.
EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale: Where to Purchase
Would you love to purchase one of these wonderful scales? They can be purchased currently on the EatSmart website or on Amazon.com for $36.95 (regular price $59.95). With this scale's large buttons and accuracy, you will find that measuring proper serving sizes and ingredients is easy enough for everyone!

Susan Broughton says
I have been wanting a kitchen scale for a while now and just haven't gotten one. I am suppose to watch what I eat and eat healthy and I think portion control is one of the key elements in doing that.
melissa cushing says
Love the idea of this product! I have been meaning to buy a kitchen scale like this for my household… and this one seesm to be better than most! Thanks so much and ood luck toall!!!
Jo-Ann Brightman says
THank you for the detailed review. I love that this scale can hold up to 15 pounds and can easily switch from grams to ounces. The large butoons and displays make it wasier on my eyes too.
I'd love to have a better scale. I started dieting after Labor Day and I've lost about 15 pounds. I've decided to wait until New Year's Day to start again. I have a cheap scale from walmart but it isn't very accurate. My boyfriend and I were weighing things and getting an ounce difference (weighing twice of three times.)
Angela Higdon says
I would love to have this scale. I am going on a weight loss mission next year, and I have a real issue with oversize portions!
JJ Caraway says
I love this Eat Smart Kitchen scale because it can hold a weight of up to 15 pounds. I need this to help me stay on portion size with my diet.
I've always wanted a kitchen scale and this one looks great. I love the lighted display and large buttons. Being able to operate this scale without a degree in electronics is a dream come true for those of us who are technology challenged. Thank you for the informative review!!
Kiera M. says
i'd love this kind of scale. it looks neat and makes the counters look less cluttered unlike other scales
I love that tare is so easy…it can be such a pain to set! Being so accurate is so important when using to measure for weight loss!
rebeka deleon says
i want to own one because some recipes call of ounces and i never have anything to weigh it. also, i calorie count to lose weight and it would help for me to weigh my food when it calls for a certain amount.
tamra gibson says
Wow so many great feautures or should I say simple but great feaures. I agree who want to have to be on their phone to use this. The one button sounds awesome and the fact that it holds 15lbs is amazing. Very well written review
Vicki Hale says
Hi, I would like to have these scales, because I cannot judge portion sizes. I mean a portion the size of one's fist? I have small hands, I think I get ripped off LOL. I need to measure my meat! Thanks. Vicki.
Terry Dickson says
I have never had a kitchen scale, it would be nice to have one.
Awesome! I've been on a medically supervised diet for a few months now in preparation for an upcoming surgery, would love to try this scale out! Thanks for what you do!
sherry butcher says
This sounds like it's the one I need since I'm dabettid I must weigh everything Portson size is everythigns, Thanks for sharing this review.
Sheri Ferguson says
Sounds like this is a good product. I think this would be a great help in my weightloss journey!
These are really great when you're trying to monitor portion size and can also be a great tool for teaching the kiddos. This also looks like a higher quality product.
Deborah D says
I am watching my weight and I need to watch p ortion sizes. This would be great to help me figure out how mu ch I am eating.
Lisa Kerr says
This would be so wonderful to have for dieting, taking all the guess work out of portion control woul be great! Thank you for the review!!
Marcia Lee says
Thank you for your review. I especially appreciate the information about the tare feature of the Eat Smart scale. I have read many reviews on the Eat Smart and other scales and I like the ease of use this scale has to offer.
That looks very useful. I prefer to use a scale for baking.
Chris N. says
I like how it's precise by measuring to the hundreth decimal place! I can see myself using this everyday to measure out my prepared food for the week
Thanks for the review. I've been in the market for a kitchen scale, and this one is at the top of my list. The tare feature, in particular, would be very useful for me.
Lucy Lopez says
This scale is exactly what I need. Trying to lose weight for health reasons and eating the right potions is always hard but this would make it so much easier. Thanks for the review.
I would so get use out of this skale with cooking, baking and canning, what batteries it uses, did i miss that?
holly polson says
I love how detailed your review was you rock
holly polson says
I have been wanting to get a kitchen scale for a while. I havent had any luck finding real reviews on them. Most of them seem like they are the manufacture just talking all technical. I like it broke down and put on lame terms so that it's easy to uderstand. Thank you for your review.
Terri C says
This sounds like what I've been looking for simple and easy to use. But I want accurate too. Would use this for so many things! Portion control!
jennifer wexler says
i have been wanting one of these for a long time. I love that the screen is digital and the numbers are a good size
I don't think I consume enough food in one day to actually weigh it.
Lisa Ferris says
A great win! A cool way to portion stuff:)
Lisa Baum says
I could really use one of those kitchen scales because I LOVE baking. There are SO MANY bread recipes that measure things by weight instead of cups, tablespoons, etc. I've been wanting a kitchen scale for weeks!
Marti Smith says
I could so use these to help me with the new resolution I have set for the 14th! Thanks so much for sharing this info with everyone.
stephanie strollo says
Years ago, I attended weight watchers classes and they highly encouraged using a scale in the kitchen for weight control since then I have been on many other diets and Im a believer in using the measurement system
I think it's awesome that as a blog author you receive products to review. Thanks for an easy to understand review. I think my favorite part of the EatSmart scale is how big of an area you have to weigh! I just started cooking and this is something I will need to save up for to make perfect recipes for parties!
teresa mccluskey says
this kitchen scale looks like like the right gift for my grandmother. Her eye sight is horrid and she loves to cook so perfect!
lana simanovicki says
very good review just the info i needed.my news year resolution is to get healthy i could really use one of these
I've read so many great reviews for this particular scale. I really want to improve my health in 2014 so I just might have to try it out for myself this year!
Lindsay Shearouse says
Great review!! I totally agree with not wanting to have to use my phone to use a kitchen scale! This would be so handy, not only for eating right but I often find myself needing a scale in the kitchen.
Terri Carle says
Thank you for this detailed review. Most scales you buy, you have no way to know if you are getting a deal or dud. I really need an accurate scare to be serious about my control of portions.
This is great that you have all these chances to get first hand information of alot of products. It must be nice to be able to test things out also.
Susan Bewley says
It is a lot of fun but a lot of work too. I have to work a lot of these products hard to make sure they can withstand daily use in a short period of time 😉
Jan Hall says
You had me convinced that I need this scale when you mentioned two things. User friendly and large buttons. One of my goals for 2014 is to lose 50 pounds. This scale would help me do that
Crystal Cochran says
This is a very informative review. I need to get a scale to help with my weight loss goals.
Mary McCloy says
Wow,I have the old fashioned scale and it is so difficult to read. I am going on a diet and need to weigh my portions of everything I eat,so I can use this for sure 🙂
I have a old scale. Could really use this kind . it would be more accute when weighing foods
Amber Mejia says
I find a scale very necessary when preparing a meal. This looks like a great product to do the job with.
I found out I was Diabetic so I have to really watch my portions. This would really help me when preparing food.
debra l. says
My husband is a …health nut. recently we decided that as a household we'd be smarter about how and what we eat. Someone had suggested a kitchen scale- and I thank you for your review. It would be great to have one of these. I know my husband would love this.
Kera Adams says
This looks like a great scale. I also like how it looks. It would probably end up staying on my counter, so it is important that it looks nice.
peggy fedison says
My dr is on my case to eat healthier and is watching my wgt closely. I am malnourished and losing too much wgt. He tells me to weigh my food and caloric intake as well. Its so hard to do without a good scale. I would love to own this. It is attractive and I would love it. Thank you for opporrtunity and for this review, it is very well written.
Janice Crespo says
I am currently working on a cookbook and trying to be as accurate as possible for the nutrtional values, etc. My daughter unfortunately just dropped my scale and broke it – this would be perfect timing! Thanks for the chance!
Lisa F. says
This would be great to have. I work with scales sometimes at work. I'm glad to hear that you thought it was user friendly. Sometimes scales aren't.
Christina Strapp says
This makes me want to try a scale in the kitchen and see if it will help. My husband and I are deteremined to get healthier, but it is very hard.
wendy ober says
Thank you for this review. As a society I believe we over eat continuously. If we were to take the time and weigh our portions, or measure them, we would see the differences in the amounts we intake unintentially. The amount of extra calories we consume is unessesary for proper nutrition. Thank you again for this offer and review.
Karen Delaney says
For many years I cooked without a scale. About two years ago, I bought one, and now it is so important to me for cooking & baking. EatSmart sounds like a great one to have! Nice review.
sharon crawford says
this would be an aewsome addition for my kitchen! I love the sleek modern look ! anyone on a prescribed diet would benifit from this!!
Sue Hull says
I've been trying to lose weight forever. I have problems with portion control too. Having a scale would help me a lot. I'm type 2 diabetic so I know losing weight would help. Thank you for the great review 🙂
Carson Lamon says
An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to write more about this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t discuss such topics. To the next! Kind regards!! wifi hack

I really like it whenever people come together and share opinions. Great blog, continue the good work! how do i hack wifi
