I recently received a new scale from amazon. I am budgeting so I tried to find something a bit cheaper, and this one had a lot of good reviews.. Well, you get what you pay for sometimes too, huh? I paid under 15 bucks and when making my batch last night, I noticed that weighing liquids was quite an issue. Instead of the numbers evenly increasing, they would jump way up too quickly, no matter how slowly I poured. It seemed better when weighing the lye, though. I also tested it with putting random objects on it.. Mostly, that was okay too, but sometimes it would differ some. According to what I could manage in weighing my oils, my numbers went slightly over the called for amount, but very little. If anything, I would think the superfat would just be a touch higher, no problem.. I do hope it passes the zap test once I unmold in a day or two, it's still kinda soft. I cannot remember the name of my other scale that I used for years, or I would buy another one. I did a search here for scales and found just a few. but was hoping to pay under 40 bucks. Is there a good one out there that is not too spendy? Thanks. Attached is a pic of the one I have, I would steer cleer..
