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
- 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.
Product PerformanceThe 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.
DimensionsThe 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.
- 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.
- 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.
