To get the most for your hard earned money look for the following features.
Also be aware of what type of platform your scale comes with. The platform is the surface on the scale where you place the item to be weighed. A stainless steel or glass platform is best because these can be cleaned easily and will not react with lye, fragrance oils, or anything else that is spilled upon them. However, some scales come with plastic platforms. If you purchase a scale with a plastic platform, you can protect it by covering it with a thin sheet of clear plastic wrap before you use it. This will protect it from any chemical spills.
