With so many of us now doing more cooking and baking at home, it's important to have the right tools. One of them: a good
scale. (Who knew it was so critical to get those flour measurements exactly right?) Amazon is home to about a zillion of them in the $20-$30 range, but a lot of them are pretty small -- meaning you might not have the space you need to weigh your stuff.
Here's a bigger one: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon seller Bolan Tech has the Homever 15-kilogram digital kitchen scale for $10.79 when you claim the 15% coupon on the product page and also apply promo code ZRSXA8QY at checkout. The regular price: $28.
This is a digital scale that can quickly toggle between five measuring units: grams, kilograms, milliliters, fluid ounces and pounds/ounces. Maximum weight supported: 15 kilograms, or about 33 pounds. (Pro tip: You could use this as a postal scale as well.) It has a backlit display and runs on a pair of AAA batteries.
As noted above, it's larger than most, measuring 9 by 6.3 inches. That's great if you frequently work with larger bowls and containers.
The scale scored a 4.7-star average rating from over 800 buyers. Homever backs it with a two-year warranty. When this deal first popped up earlier in the week, it was $15 -- thanks to the additional coupon, now it's just $11. What's not to like?
