A few months ago my daughter started to take a keen interest in me cooking, so I decided to bite the bullet and start some basic baking with her. I personally haven't baked anything for almost 10 years (now I sound old!) so decided to just purchase cheap baking equipment until I was at an adequate level to get the most out of more expensive equipment. The first thing I needed was a set of scales. * The scales * The Argos Value Range mechanical scales are exactly like the picture above. They aren't going to win any awards for being the prettiest piece of equipment in your kitchen, but they are basic and do what all scales are meant to do, weigh. The ... Read the complete review

---Why I Got These--- Well at the risk of sounding a cheapskate we actually got given one when brother-in-law was upgrading his kitchen. Not one to refuse hand-ons and it was better than the one we curently used so we kept it rather than passing it on to the charity shop. ---The Brand--- Argos Value Range. ---The Product--- Mechanical kitchen weighing scales.

Weighing scales are weighing scales to be fair. As long as there accurate then theres nothing more to say... but I will say more ;-) In my 'poor days', there was a day when I wanted to bake a cake.

If you dont keep your scales on display then this is fantastic! Because after use you can just store them away, no one can see them and they store away very nicely.

After my ex left me with no contents in my flat, and I realised I had to replace everything, I opted for the cheap option on most things. Weighing scales being one of them. I paid £3.99 for these beauties from Argos, what can go wrong I thought? They are not the most attractive blue scales in the world but luckily the base actually fits into the bowl so when I put them away in my cupboard they don't take up much room really. On a scale of 1 - 10 (Scale did you see what I did there?? Ha ha ha) for what they are and what they do I would give them a 5. They are not the worst by any means but in terms of being wholly accurate, they don't do well there either. I do ... Read the complete review
