$15 Scale for Measuring Food


For those of you who’d like a small, cheap scale to measure out portions of food 1.1 pounds or less, you might want to use a jeweler’s scale something like this. It measures in ounces and grams with a high degree of precision.

I use a kitchen scale, but recently purchased something similar to the one above to dose fertilizer in a planted aquarium. You can’t beat the price.

Thanks! I don’t even remember when I bought the scale I’m using. For that price, I think it’s time for a new one.

SBT, that price INCLUDES shipping & handling.

The only thing you need to know is that a jeweler’s scale isn’t large. It’s about the size of the palm of your hand. It would fit nicely into a shirt pocket.

I bought one very similar to this at an Indian convenience store. It was nestled in between the glass pipes and very small zip-lock bags.
