With its ingenious design and unique, genuinely useful features, Oxo’s scale is a hands-down favorite. The backlit display screen is large and can conveniently be pulled away from the base via a 4-inch cord, so it’s never obscured by whatever’s on the platform above. Its automatic shutoff feature is also smart—it activates after about 3 minutes but will remember its last weight for up to 45 minutes, so you don’t lose track if it turns off before you’re finished. Its 7-inch platform is large and removable for easy and thorough cleaning, though it’s not dishwasher safe. The deluxe stainless-steel model shown here can weigh up to 11 pounds (though there’s a lower-priced version with a 5-lb. capacity) and displays metric and imperial measurements (the latter in fractions).
