I have used the Salter Aquatronic Baker’s Dream Scale, model #3007, for about 8 years now. I have not ever had to replace the battery in it, but perhaps I should consider getting a spare just in case based on Janet’s post above. I love the scale because it does weigh up to 11 pounds, and it will measure in kilograms and grams. I have the choice to set it to do one or the other when I am baking or measuring anything. The scale has always performed for me. It never fluctuates once the bowl is set on top of it and is still. I like the tare function of this scale as well. It will allow the user to place whatever bowl you want to pour the ingredients in on the scale and then tare it so that it reads back to zero before you put your ingredients in there.
My only complaint is that it does turn off rather quickly. I realize this feature is built in to preserve your battery usage; however, I do make sure that I turn my scale on and off myself. If I could have a say in how it is designed I would have the option to turn off the automatic shut off when I am baking. Outside of that one complaint, which is really more of an inconvience for me, I have been very happy with my Baker’s Dream scale. I think you will be happy with the one that you can get locally as well. It measures fluid ounces as well as dry ingredients with precision. I also have always stored it in the box it came in. Salter has redesigned the scale recently, but I will include 2 links for it here. The first one is the actual scale that I am speaking of that I own. The 2nd link is to Salter so that you can see the new one. I may look into getting one of the myweigh scales once this one quits functioning. There has to be a very good reason that Rose suggests this scale above all others.
Here is the newest one on Amazon:
