Taylor Stainless Steel Digital Scale

Taylor Stainless Steel Digital Scale

I researched and wrote this Taylor Stainless Steel Digital Scale Review because I have been wanting a scale to use at home that is as accurate as my doctor's office scale. The one I had was getting old and always seemed to weigh a few pounds off no matter how carefully I adjusted it. As mentioned I did some research online and came across this model. I gave it a try and I love it so I wanted to write an honest review of it for anyone looking for more information about it. As far as electronic digital scales go, this one is accurate and it is a real bargain for the price.

I figured I would try a digital, electronic scale because I've heard they are a lot more accurate than traditional bathroom scales are. I was pleasantly surprised at this scale because it offers precise readouts which are very clear to see in any light and from any angle. Let me go over the main features of this scale.

Five Main Features of the Taylor Precision Stainless Steel Scale

Features

  • It operates on two lithium ion batteries which are included with the purchase of the scale. You can place the scale wherever it is most convenient for you. You can also move it around as needed to another room.
  • The digital display is blue backlit which makes it really easy to see. You can even read your weight in dim lighting or from any angle.
  • It is made with a tempered-glass platform and wrapped in stainless steel. This looks like an elegant scale but it is tough. It can hold up to 400 pounds or 180 kilograms of weight.
  • It is comfortable to stand on. It measures about 12 inches across.
  • It comes with an auto-off feature. You never have to worry about draining the batteries.
What I love about it is how easy it is to read and how accurately it measures weight. Some digital scales I have tried are hard to read but my doctor uses a digital scale so I wanted to give one a try. This one did not disappoint. When I say it is easy to read, I mean it. It is the most important aspect of any scale and for an electronic scale, it has to have a clear readout.

Product Performance

The only thing I have a problem with is that it is supposed to be placed in a corner. I do not really know why that is. One thing I did notice is that I had to place it in an area where it would not fall into a tile crack.

Dimensions

The product weighs four pounds and measures, according to the box, 1.8 by 13.2 by 13.8 inches. It only operates on the lithium-ion batteries.

Pros

  • I have a lot of positive things to say about it. The main thing is how easy it is to read and how accurate it is. That's what you want from a scale!
  • Also, you never have to worry about slipping on it. It is easy to balance yourself on it.
  • Programming it is easy, too. Just push a button and you are set.
  • You can also slide a button to change the readout from pounds to kilograms.
  • Get the readout back to zero by simply tapping the scale's surface. It is super easy to use.

Cons

  • As for anything negative, I'd say not to expect wonders from it. It is an affordable scale but not one as functional or tricked out as your doctor's scale is. Still, it looks gorgeous for such an affordable item.
  • I have had no problems with it but you want to keep a few things in mind when using it. Do not use it on carpeting. It will only give a decent weight read out if you use it on a hard surface. I figured that went without saying but I did read some reviews before I bought it that mentioned it will measure a few pounds off when placed on different surfaces.
  • Another thing is that you might - and I stress the word might - want to be careful about the manufacturer honoring the guarantee it comes with. Again, this is only from the reviews I read before buying it, I saw one instance where someone experienced it break after a few months of use. They said the manufacturer was not quick to help them with returning it for a replacement. I cannot vouch for this one way or the other but I figured I would mention it. This is probably the only risk you will face when buying it. I have had mine for a while and it works great.

Price

For the price, this scale is probably one of the best you can get. You get more than your money's worth on this item. It looks good, it feels solid, and it does what it is supposed to do perfectly, in my opinion. I really do not think I could have purchased a better scale than this one.

Taylor Precision Stainless Electronic Scale Rating

I just want to mention that as for replacing the batteries, this is easy to do. You can order them off of Amazon. They are called 3-volt DC coin cells. The batteries that come with it last a long while. You need to pull the plastic tab on the bottom corner of the scale to get it to work the first time, by the way. Bottom line this is a great scale at a great price.
