Salter Kitchen Scales
The Salter kitchen scales add a touch of tradition to any home. Their history has been traced back to British spring manufacturer Richard Salter, who in 1760 started making the first spring scales. Those metal boxes, loaded with a spring that ends with a hook on one end, are surely much different than what you can get from Salter these days. The company has evolved a lot over the years and it now offers small, compact scales that fit all your kitchen needs.Electronic Salter Kitchen Scales
Modern electronic Salter kitchen scales come in glass and metal. You can find Salter stainless steel kitchen scales in silver and black with mainly square shaped designs. Their glass kitchen scales have circular and square clear glass platforms combined with a stainless steel body. Both these materials make the scales very hygienic, as it's quite easy to clean and sterilise the surface.Electronic Kitchen Scale Features
All electronic Salter kitchen scales come with similar features. They measure up to 5kg with a 1g resolution, have an option to measure ingredients separately and can be switched to show measurements for liquids. Measurements do not even have to be metric, as the scales switch between metric and imperial with a simple push of a button. All scales have a nice display on the front panel, which is even backlit on some models. Salter's electronic kitchen scales are all battery powered, however, battery requirements vary from one model to another so be sure to check the specifications.Mechanical Salter Kitchen Scales
Some mechanical Salter kitchen scales are also available and still in production. Though most of them are made of plastic and still use a measuring orb, the orb is at least machine washable or made out of metal on newer designs. Two great advantages of these models are the greater selection of colours and the lower price. These scales show both metric and imperial measurements on the dial and need no power to operate.
