Kitchen Scale Recommendations (2003 – 2010) in Kitchen Consumer Posted September 1, 2004 I just purchased a Soehnle Hippo Digital Food Scale. Very thin (can be hung on the wall). Has a tare function, can weigh up to 11 lbs in .1 ounce increments. It is plastic and is very light but it gets the job done. I was disappointed that it does not display 2 positions after the decimal. It also easily converts to metric (botton on front of scale). It was around $40.00.
