Best Digital Scales TechnoBuffalo 2020

Digital scales are typically used to weigh yourself, but many people use the term to mean kitchen and food scales, baby scales, and postal scales. So we've included all of them in our round-up of the best digital scales. The most important feature of any scale is its accuracy and how consistent it is in displaying an accurate reading. Several of these scales we've tested ourselves, so we know just how good they are and why they deserve to be on our list.

Best bathroom scale: Yunmai Premium Smart Scale

Best Overall

The Yunmai Premium smart scale is the best for weighing people. We know this because it was tested against a dozen other bathroom scales and it proved to be the most accurate for both men and women of various shapes and sizes. This scale can be programmed to save metrics for 16 different people and will sync through a mobile app to give you additional information besides weight. This includes your body mass index (BMI), muscle and bone densities, and if you're hydrated enough. The digital display screen is large and easy to read without straining.

Value bathroom scale: Etekcity Digital Bathroom Scale

This digital bathroom scale by Etekcity can hold up to 400 pounds. It is consistent and close to being spot-on accurate every time you use it. It features step-on technology, which means it doesn't turn on until your step on it, and it will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity. The scale can be manually calibrated when needed just by using your feet while its large platform is held in place and sturdy with strategically placed feet. Most people like the look of this scale because it has clean lines and a sleek finish that looks good in most bathrooms.

Best kitchen scale: GreaterGoods Digital Food Kitchen Scale

For keeping tabs in food portions we recommend this digital kitchen scale from GreatGoods. It has a good-sized platform that holds up to 11 pounds. The measurements are clearly displayed on the screen in ounces, pounds, and grams. You can calibrate the scale before weighing foods to account for the extra weight of bowls or containers you use while weighing. It's easy to wipe up any messes when you're done and the scale is thin enough to easily store away in a drawer or cabinet. The GreaterGoods digital scale comes in four popular colors.

Best baby scale: Health o Meter Grow with Me Baby and Toddler Scale

To keep tabs on your baby's growth at home we recommend the Health o Meter Grow with Me digital scale. The top tray is designed to gently cradle your baby while keeping them safe from accidentally rolling out. The tray comes off so your toddler can then step on a more traditional scale to get their weight. Whether your child lays, sits, or stands on the scale it will consistently show an accurate weight. This digital scale holds up to 60 pounds and comes with a growth chart to help you see if your child is on track for their age.

Cradle-style baby scale: Smart Weigh Comfort Baby Scale

This digital baby scale doesn't sit on a podium. Instead the whole scale is a curved platform that will accurately display your baby's weight even if they are wiggling. This is more safe compared to scales that elevate your child higher. You can select to see your baby's weight displayed in pounds or kilograms. It easily holds up to 44 pounds at once. Because of how this scale is designed it is easy to store in between uses, and it can be wiped down if it gets dirty.

Best postal scale: Accuteck All-in-1 Series Postal Scale

If you have a small business, or just send a lot of mail through the United Postal Service, you need a reliable postal scale to keep tabs on your shipping expenditures. The Accuteck scale will give you an accurate reading of the weights of your packages, even if they are bulky or oddly shaped. It is really sensitive and will display measurements down to 0.1 oz. and up to 50 pounds. You can view measurement results in ounces, pounds, grams, and kilograms.

Getting down to the weight of the issue

The Yunmai Premium Smart Scale is the best digital scale for weighing yourself and keeps tabs of other health metrics like bone density and body mass. It can be used for weighing packages prior to sending them to the post office, but the Accuteck All-in-1 Series Postal Scale is a better pick for that.

If you need a digital scale to monitor your food intake or ensure the proper amount of ingredients are used in a recipe, the GreaterGoods Digital Food Kitchen Scale is pretty accurate and holds up to 11 pounds at once.
