We live in an apartment and our kitchen has so much stuff in it, everytime we need a new item , im afraid where we will put it! I was so glad to recieve this digital kitchen scale because not only does it work well, but its nice a small and sleek looking, perfect for us! Looks great, and the company made sure it came with batteries also. This was a super plus as you dont see that very often. My husband likes to buy beef in bulk, and then weigh it out into 1 lb bags. We wlll get lots of use out of this item. Great product, highly recommended.
