    Digital scales will be available at Aldi for $9.99 on 9/12 - I bought one a couple of years ago, and it's great. I think I might buy a spare.

    If you don't have one, take advantage of this sale if you have an Aldi near you. It will make it so much easier in the kitchen - no need to convert recipes that are posted in metric!

    FYI, be sure to check the weight capacity of the scale to make sure it's not too light for things like bread baking. I have two scales; one 3# capacity from Target, and the other 11# capacity from Harbor Freight Tools when it was on sale for $9.99. Both are English/Metric switchable.

    We don't have an Aldi's around here so what is a good brand to buy?
    I looked at Target and they are $40.

    JoeV, that's a good point and I don't quite remember what the capacity is of the one I already have. I know I've used it to measure amount of meat and fruit and other things and it may be 6# .. Certainly you want one with at least a 3# capacity for baking.

    The one I have from Aldi is a small scale - good for me as I am mainly using for baking just for us - but if you need to weigh large quantities, such as fruit for canning, a larger footprint makes it easier to read the scale.

    I had a Salton first and that was a very good scale until I* dropped it one time too many. You cannot go wrong going with the major brands such as Taylor, Soehnle, OXO, Polder. I'm not familiar with the store JoeV mentioned, but I'd check places like overstock.com .

    I like the ones that are flat like a platform - like at the post office. Some have bowls or other things and I think that makes them hard to store. Mine can be slipped into the side of the cabinet right over the work area -easy to get to when I need it.

    Thanks for the information. I'll keep looking until I find a good one at a good price.
