I haven’t had the best of luck with scales – I tend get all excited when I spot one, run out the shop with it (after paying of course), only to get home and discover that it’s not actually working properly – it’s happened to me more than once. So I took a bit of time with this one, using it to weigh something before I bought it, and it seems to be working just fine! What’s nice about it – other than its obvious good looks – is that it’s in kilos. More often than not these vintage scales are in pounds, which although handy for some recipes, doesn’t make that much sense when you live in SA. On the downside though, there is a bit of rust on the body of the scale, but luckily most of the wear is under the tray so isn’t as obvious as it could be.

This is a very handsome and practical kitchen accessory that should keep going for years to come, provided you care for it well.
