I'm thinking of buying a modern, probably electronic kitchen scale, to replace my really ancient mechanical one. I'm located in Bombay, India.
I'm wondering what considerations should inform my decision. Possible points include:
Should the scale be waterproof? Is that useful?
On a related note, what considerations should one give to being easy to clean?
Apparently if the tare button is on the weighing surface, it can distort/bias the weight measurement by a few grams. It's not necessarily clear for a given item whether that will be a problem or not. It's presumably only an issue if the weighing is very fast.
Should there be a platform for weighing, which is separate from the main machine? See the previous point. Also, if it's the same platform, then whatever you want to weight may block the display. Though some units, like the Soehnle Page Profi (see below) have a hold button to deal with that.
I'm currently considering Soehnle, specifically Soehnle KSD Page Digital Kitchen Scale and Soehnle KSD Fiesta Digital Kitchen Scale. Though the former appears to actually be the Page Profi. "KSD Page" has no hits elsewhere.
