Electric Kitchen scales

Postby electrongirl » Fri Sep 07, 2007 10:09 pm

Does anyone know if you can buy electronic kitchen scales that don't run on batteries, instead they actually plug into the wall??

I am sick of replacing the batteries in mine and have spent like 3 times the initial cost of the scales on them.

Thanks in advance!

Nope sorry.

My mum does have a pair of cool kitchen scales she bought from tupperware.

You place whatever plate or container on it and can manually move the digit thingy to zero so you get an accurate reading of whatever you are weighing.

Goal weight - 53kgs

No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

I just went out looking for some and I think its going to be futile.

All of them run on batteries unless I go for commercial ones, but I don't need them THAT bad!!

I bought some last year and I haven't changed the battery in them yet - I love them. Will go home and look at the brand of them.
2008 - my year to be great!!
