Touch Key Operation You won't find any buttons on this digital food scale. The 1052 has sensor touch technology that lets you simply place your finger on the key you want to operate. You won't have to worry about water damage, gunk getting stuck under the keys, or buttons breaking.
Perfect For Recipes! If you're having a tough time getting consistent recipes, you should try weighing out each ingredient with this bamboo kitchen scale. When ya weigh what you're putting into your mixes, you have a better chance of your recipes coming out the same each time. And the best part is...no more measuring cups! Just weigh your ingredient, set the scale back to zero, and weigh the next! This Salter 1052 kitchen scale can handle 11 pounds of ingredients.
Large, Easy To Read Weight Display A lot of the kitchen scales ya see around have a teeny tiny weight display. Now, that's fine for most people, but not if ya have trouble seeing that tiny stuff. Salter designed this digital food scale with a big, backlit weight display with digits that are an inch tall. This feature is great for users with not-so-great vision.
Unique, Bamboo Weighing Surface This Salter kitchen scale has a very durable bamboo weighing platform. It's not only stylish, but good for the Earth, too!
Aquatronic Feature Lots of kitchen scales only let ya weigh dry ingredients, but not this one. The Salter 1052 bamboo food scale can measure both wet and dry ingredients...It's the ultimate recipe scale!
Tare Feature The tare button on this digital kitchen scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the items you're adding. This Add & Weigh feature sure is useful when ya want to use a bowl or tray to weigh your things, or if ya want to get separate weights of multiple items.
Auto-Off Feature If ya have ever had the batteries in something run out because you forgot to turn it off, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. The Salter 1052 will automatically turn off after about three minutes of inactivity saving battery power and money.
It Remembers The Last Unit Ya Used If you only want weights in one unit of measurement, (like grams for instance), it can be a real pain if your scale always turns on ready to weigh in milliliters. It's a good thing the 1052 turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.
10 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! Salter provides a ten year warranty on every scale they make. So, if ya have a problem with your scale, just send it to the Salter warranty center. They'll fix it or replace it, and send it right back.
I agree with previous reviewer. It is a very frustrating scale. As you add, say salt, you add and add and the digits never change. The accuracy is probably more like 2-3 grams instead of 1 as advertized.
I bought the Salter scale because I am familiar with the brand & I already own another Salter scale.
I like the compact size of the scale, but I don't like the lack of sensitivity the scale displays when adding weight.
For example, you can add several grams before the scale will display a change in weight.
