This scale is easy to use, easy to store and a snap to clean (although you probably will not have to clean it because of the tare feature). It measures the exact weight of an item, which makes packaging equal portions easy. Many recipes call for weight rather than volume and this scale gives precise weight. The LCD display is backlit and nothing gets in the way of reading it. I just wish I had had this years ago. I don't think of it as a gadget, but rather as a necessity in my kitchen.

My sister sent me the 6" version of this knife for Christmas. She purchased it from Chefs. I liked it so much that I ordered the 8" Victorinox from Chefs. These knives are razor sharp, ,they are well balanced and very comfortable in my hand. The 8" was rated by Cook's Illustrated magazine as the "best inexpensive chef's knife." I trust Cook's Illustrated and Chefs. I am certain I will enjoy these knives for years. Thank you, Chefs, for carrying such high quality products.
