Keen to know which brand to buy? Or want to share a great purchase with the rest of us? This is the place to do it...
I am looking for a good quality mechanical type weighing scales, the type that Delia has been singing the praise of for years and of which there is a picture of a white set on her website. You put your ingedients in the scoop and the weights on the balance opposite.
These types of scales are widely available at specialist kitchen shops. Expensive though.
I have a set of the scales you describe, the make of them is WEYLUX and as Welshcookie says they are quite expensive. I have both sets of weights with mine, metric and imperial but you can buy either or both with the scales. I have had mine years and I have never regretted buying them although I do have a digital scale as well. Best of both worlds!
I recently dropped my scales on the kitchen floor which resulted in it being damaged and not giving true readings so consigned it to the rubbish bin. I was shopping in Tesco and bought a new scales which cost £6.50 and suits my needs OK.
Nenna, thank you so much for the information. I too have digital scales but have always wanted the mechanical too. Sue
High, I have looked at the weighing scales on Weylux website but notice they do not have the tradional "pointer" in the middle of the scales which tells you when you have the correct weight. Are yours the same?
Hi suue, my scales do NOT have a pointer on them, they are a balance scale which means that when you put your weight on the platform then put your commodity in the pan they will both be at the exact same level. I hope I am explaining myself clearly. If you look at the picture of the scales it may help you to picture what I am trying to say. I hope this helps you to make up your mind, it is a considered purchase as the scales are quite expensive as you have probably discovered.
Have a look in Ar**s catalogue or store, they do a black & crome set for about £35, which i think is a bit cheaper.
