Tmart is a really cool e-marketplace that has great competitive prices on electronics, accessories, toys, apparel, novelties, gifts and more. They are a great resource for a Thrifty and Frugal shopper. I have teamed up with Tmart to do a review and giveaway on a 5kg X 1gm Resolution Glass Platform LCD Kitchen Digital Scale.
This Tmart Kitchen Scale is very sleek and classy looking. I love that it is nice enough to leave on my kitchen counter so that it is always available when I need it (which is often). The scale is silver with a glass platform. It measures in kilograms, pounds and ounces. It has a capacity of 5000gm which is about 11 pounds. I have tested it on several known weights and I have found that it is extremely accurate.
I have been using this scale to help me weigh out portions. I weigh individual portions for portion control. I also buy bulk packages and use this scale to measure it down into individual meal portions. This helps save a lot of money since bulk prices are always cheaper. Speaking of saving money...this scale retails for $49.80. Guess what the Tmart price is? Only $17.67! Talk about a steal.
I only have one small issue with this scale. The measurements on the LCD screen are really tiny. I have bad eyesight and I had to squint a little to read them initially. We decided we want our scale set to ounces, so it isn't really an issue for us now. The scale is easy to use. You just turn it on, tare it out and then place your object on top to be weighed. You can then press the unit button to change from ounces to pounds to kilograms. My small laptop mouse weighs 3.3 ounces. :) The scale also has a clock feature on it. I have clocks all over my kitchen, so I didn't find this all that special, but some people might find it handy.
Overall, I really like this kitchen scale. I actually think it is a lot nicer than the one I was considering paying a few dollars more for. It is definitely being sold for a fantastic price. Make sure you check out Tmart to see the other goodies that they have for sale. I personally have my eye on some super cheap wall decals!
