“ Brand: Salter / Type: Scales „
Bathroom scales are not really my friend at the moment. As I am pregnant my weight is going up day by day so I generally try and not step on these if I can help it although it is quite interesting to see how much I am actually growing. Once the baby has come and I decide to lose the weight I hopefully, will enjoy getting back on these and watch the weight fall off.
We purchased these scales soon after we moved into our house. We have ceramic tiles on our kitchen floor and so this scale was the perfect look to complete the bathroom as it is a ceramic tile itself and actually blends into the floor. It looks exactly like a big square tile and the only difference is that it has a small digital display window that shows you your weight. The tile is a light brown/cream colour and has a texture to it but is nice to stand on and not uncomfortable.
When you first stand on the scales a 0 will come up in the window and whilst the scales are thinking the 0 moves across the screen until it finally flashes up your weight a second or too later. The weight will stay on the screen for a minute or two so if you've received a none too favourable weight it will give you a minute or two to digest it! If for some reason you have stood on the scales incorrectly the word ERR will appear on the screen to show that you have made a error. If this happens then you can just step one foot onto the scale to get it to go back to 0 and start again.
The scale can measure your weight in either stones, kilograms of pounds. There is a little red switch on the back of the scale and you just move this to whichever readout you want. I always have mine on stones but it was nice when my little girl was born that I could sit her on this and turn the scales to lbs to see how much she was growing. Worryingly this scale will measure weights up to 28st, good god I hope I never get that big but this would be a good advantage when it comes to weighing suitcases etc before you travel. I have done this a few times with my suitcases just to make sure they are not overweight and the scale has been good for this function too.
The scales are powered by a lithium battery which is included when you buy the scales and I don't think in 5 years that we have changed the battery yet so that is good. The scales cost £40 and we bought ours from John Lewis.
