How accurate are electronic kitchen scales?
Just purchased a Salter 1008. Weighs up to 11 lbs etc etc etc.
On the way home, I also purchased a 5# bag of flour.
When I weighed the bag, according to the scales, it was 18 oz short.
Next, I called Taylor (Salter), the representative said the question had never been asked and they would need to consult the engineers.
Looks like I will either keep the Salter and ask the grocer about shorting the flour, or take the machine back, or maybe both.
What is the experience of others?
