I know there already is a thread asking a similar question (https://forums.egullet.org/topic/137225-kitchen-scale-recommendations-2011–/), but instead of necroing that one, I thought it made more sense to create a new thread.
Anyhoo, to get back on topic, I'm on the hunt for a new kitchen scale, and so far I've not really been successful in finding one that I really love, and I hope this forum could help me in finding a new one.
My requirements are:
1: Minimum resolution of 0.1 g.
2: Minimum capacity of 2 kg.
3: Measure in g.
4: Replaceable battery and/or need to be plugged in to a socket to work, else I'll have to throw it out when the battery dies, and I don't want that.
5: Aesthetically pleasing to look at, which is obviously subjective.
My old scale satisfied basically all of them, except the resolution part, resolution was only 1 g, which isn't really helpful when measuring spices and such.
Currently I'm struggling with point 4 and 5, since a lot have started using non-replaceable litium-ion batteries, and others just look like they more belong in a lab than in a home kitchen.
Current candidates are:
Kern FOB-NS (https://www.kern-sohn.com/en/FOB-NS) - satisfies points 1-4, honestly this fits the bill, but it's really ugly. Can get it for around DKK928/€124/£107/$148.
Timemore Black Mirror (https://en.timemore.com/taimochanpin/heijingdianzicheng/heijingbasicdianzicheng/) - satisfies points 1-3 and 5, it's relatively cheap and looks good. Can get it for around DKK545/€73/£62/$87.
Acaia Pearl (https://eu.acaia.co/collections/coffee-scales/products/pearl?variant=39315672727663) - satisfies points 1-3 and 5, got a lot of useless crap, like smartphone connectivity, bloody expensive, but it looks utterly gorgeous! Can get it for around DKK1200/€158/£135/$187.
Hario V60 scale (https://global.hario.com/seihin/productdetail.php?product=VSTN-2000B) - satisfies points 2-4, only satisfies point 1 if total weight is below 600g, and it looks utterly boring. Can get it for around DKK600/€80/£69/$95.
Anyhoo, I hope someone in here might know of another scale that I've missed!
Else I'll probably end up with either the Kern or the Timemore.
