digital kitchen scale comparison
As fitness, weight management, and culinary arts continue to become the "in" thing, digital kitchen
scales are also hot nowadays and almost everyone is getting one.
There are so many kinds of kitchen scales but for now, let's compare two of the more popular
digital kitchen scale models in the market --- EatSmart's Precision Pro and DigitalScaleCity's
Pronto Precision Plus.
As of this writing, EatSmart's Precision Pro is considered the top selling digital kitchen scale in
Amazon but a new scale from DigitalScaleCity, the Pronto Precision Plus, is selling like hotcakes
recently. Being a new product, the latter is featured under the "Hot New Release" in Amazon.com.
Now let's take a closer look…
Look and Design
True, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and both of these scales have something to brag about
in the "looks" department. Some may find it shallow but some people wanted a scale that will look
fittingly well in their kitchen because for these individuals, the kitchen is their shrine and the
extension of themselves.
Precision Pro is somewhat shaped like sleek spaceship ("Flight of the Navigator") with a circular
platform that separates itself from the whole unit. It looks very nice and EatSmart provides various
shades and colors for buyers to choose.
Pronto Precision Plus went with the more minimalistic look and the manufacturers were not
kidding. If you want simplicity, nothing looks simpler than this one. But keep in mind, it may look
simple but still looks sleek and futuristic---futuristic designs are inclined towards minimalism after
DigitalScaleCity's flagship digital kitchen scale has a brushed stainless steel surface making it
look metallic which would look good in any kitchen. At the moment, Pronto Precision Plus is only
available in a single color.
The separate platform design and different color variants of Precision Pro may be favored by
some people but the simple, sleek, and compact metallic design of the Pronto Precision Plus is a
definite turn-on for customers. In this department, Precision Pro slightly edges out Pronto
Longevity and Durability
The Pronto Precision Plus looks compact without any loose parts to worry about. It also feels solid
and sturdy. It seems that you can put it just about anywhere and do just about anything with it.
That's how durable it feels. On the other hand, the Precision Pro's platform can be loose and
wobbly but overall, it also considerably durable but not as much as the Pronto Precision Plus.
Both scales have 11lb limits and run on 2 AAA batteries. No experiments had been done about
battery life but both scales offer auto shut-off features to save battery life.
Being more compact and solid, Pronto Precision Plus has this on the bag.
Function and Features
Both have the basic features that any dieter or cook should want in a scale. They have large
easy-to-read displays and two buttons---Tare and Unit. Tare is an essential feature that makes it
easier for you to zero out containers and other items placed on the platform. Both scales provide
easy changes in units with a touch of button. These scales can also be used to weigh things other
than food, such as mails, books, and light packages. This is another tie.
Accuracy and Precision
The Precision Pro and Pronto Precision Plus are tried with a standard weight (control) and used
repeatedly in various surfaces. It concluded that both scales are accurate and precise. This is
Price and Freebies
So far it is a tie between these two excellent scales. Most probably, the deciding factor is the price
of the digital kitchen scales.
As of this writing, EatSmart's Precision Pro is priced at $25.00 and comes with a Calorie Counting
Guide (which can easily be found on the internet). On the other hand, DigitalScaleCity's Pronto
Precision Plus is only $16.95. This is an obvious win for the DigitalScaleCity's Pronto Precision
WINNER: PRONTO PRECISION PLUS
