We actually have a scale at home already, it’s an uneventful scale that looks like, well, a scale! We do not put that out a lot, as it’s sort of a sore sight for the eyes. We have seen similar products over the years, but most of them came with pretty outrageous prices. Came across this one, and it was pretty much love at first sight. When we unbox it, it was even more amazing than what we thought! The design is pretty slick, and it has gotten rid of my longest fear, that it would crack or break under my weight. It can actually withstand quite a bit, and I feel pretty safe standing on that. You can toggle in between kg/lb, which is a pretty nice feature.
