It’s finally here! It’s been a long time coming…
A good digital scale is vital to soap making. I’ve been using a kitchen scale and it’s been decent… however, there were lots of reasons for me to purchase a better scale.
One drawback about using my kitchen scale is that it would shut off after only a few seconds. This was a common occurrence when I measured lye. Often times I had to start over – not only was it a time waster but I didn’t like handling lye more than I needed to. Another issue was that the display was small and didn’t light up. Many times I had to get closer to the scale to see the numbers. The last major issue was that it couldn’t handle more than 2 lbs.
These were some of the reasons I decided to invest in the MyWeigh KD-7000 scale. I purchased it on sale for $30.18 through Old Will Knott Scales and to my delight they shipped it out the same day! I haven’t used it yet but I wanted to share some pictures and information.
