I was hopeful that I could use this scale to evaluate the nutritional values for some of my recipes. When I received the unit I was quite excited. The first challenge was my pizza crust recipe. I place a bowl on the scale, tare to zero and add my first ingredient. Whole wheat flour. Enter food code for whole wheat flour. I save the data to memory and tare again. Next, sugar. I don't see sugar on the food code list. I check again. Nope, not there. There is eel, octopus etc. but no sugar or baking powder etc. I have to manually calculate the values for these ingredients and add them in by hand. This is a giant oversight. A diabetic needs to closely monitor sugar intake. This scale wobbles on a flat surface. A $70 scale shouldn't wobble. The display if difficult to read. You have to be at the exact right angle and there is no backlight. Cheap. While this scale is useful, it just doesn't quite cut the mustard. Also not on the food code list.

Exceptional Product

on 6/30/2008

This is a wonderful product. I am using mine for weight loss purposes and this is a great tool. For example, I used to put cheese on my egg-beaters omlette. When I measured the cheese and looked at the nutrient counters I was floored by the calories in shredded cheese. Needless to say I switched to low fat, low calorie cheese. I wouldnt have realized this without the scale, and kept on piling the cheese on my omlettes. It is very accurate and a great investment for the person that wants to know what they are really consuming. Read More

Much better than the Salter 1450

on 11/12/2008

So I had initially bought the Salter 1450 on the recommendation of a friend on an internet message board. While the scale worked fine, the database of foods was impractical (lots of packaged/junk foods) for somebody trying to maintain health with diabetes. Additionally, the search functionality (scrolling through) took more time than it was worth and just created headaches for me. My local diabetes center recommended the EatSmart to me, and so far i have been thoroughly impressed. Seems to be a much more "professional" approach to this scale, with a database tailored specifically to whole foods and an easy to use interface. Best of all, the nutrition facts calculator is an additional feature that allows me to monitor net carbs with any packaged foods i happen to eat (this can be done with any food, so I make my own healthy 100 calorie snacks!) It also sits nicely on my kitchen counter and looks aesthetically pleasing, unlike the Salter that looked like a laptop and I was ashamed to have around. EatSmart was a little cheaper too so i saved a few bucks. Highly recommended Read More
