Market Insight

2017

This remains a reasonably simple market for the consumer to navigate. We judge this in terms of descriptive product names or obvious design differences etc. Some markets are very tricky when comparing products!

In 2017, the best digital kitchen scales are only sold at Amazon. The Duronic scales that were 1st in 2016 have moved to 4th place. The rest are all new to this report.

We looked at the reviews of over 60 sets of kitchen scales at Argos, 25 at John Lewis and over 40 at Tesco. Some sets of scales scored 4.7 and met our criteria.

However the very high scores at Amazon kept them out this year. (We did see lots of suspect reviews for a set of scales at Amazon – they were omitted from our list, and also reported to Amazon.)

The main manufacturers in this sector are Salter, Duronic, Kitchen Craft and Von Chef.

Etekcity and Jazooli are a new name to us, and get great reviews. Ozeri are known to us – they make excellent bathroom scales, and feature in previous reports we have made.

We have looked at electronic kitchen scales since 2015. In 2015 we saw two pairs of Salter scales and some VonChef scales in the Top 5. You can see our 2015 and 2016 Top 5 by clicking on this data page.

2016

This is a busy product sector. There are five or six main manufacturers who produce most of the kitchen scales.

Generally speaking, a lot of the kitchen scales we saw scored well – around 4.4 out of 5 stars.

In 2016, we see lots of emphasis on design and colour, and improvements in the sensors used.

We have only listed dedicated kitchen scales, as opposed to postal scale hybrids.

We noted the Duronic kitchen scales in our 2015 report. They had many good reviews in 2015, but not enough quantity. These have now entered the Top 5, in first place.
