Foldable Kitchen Scale Maximizes Counter Space

By Andrew Liszewski

Kitchen gadgets can be as fun as any piece of high-techery you have around the house, but what’s the point of a counter full of gizmos when there’s no room left to actually cook? Well at least this Foldable Kitchen Scale won’t be in the way. It can handle loads up to 6.6 lbs providing measurements in 1g units, but folds up to a footprint no larger than a spice shaker. It’s powered by 2 x AAA batteries which are good for about 6 months of average use, and besides providing weight measurements it’s also got a 60 second timer, though that might be a mistake in the copy since I’m not sure what you could really cook in just 60 seconds. (Flash fry a buffalo with 20 seconds to spare?) ~$55 from Pro-Idee.

    I can never decide if I want to blow all my money on kitchen-gadgets, video games, or computer parts…this is not making my decision any easier.

    It cool and all but is it worth it.

  • EspritOuvert

    The timer seems like an afterthought. 60 seconds isn't very useful, unless you start playing board games in the kitchen.

    I'm sure drug dealers will love it.

  • Jessicat

    haha and they can easily hide it since it's so small.

  • chaosoldier

    and all that white powder will be passed over thinking it's flour or sugar

    What a fantastic post! This is such good information for everyone! I always explain the importance of correct measuring to my students when I teach classes…it makes such a difference!
