WeighMax Digital Kitchen Scale W-2810-5KG-BLACK review

The WeighMax Digital Kitchen Scale comes with a bowl attachment. However, that is one of its few exceptional features. It has one of the lowest weight capacities of any food scale we reviewed.

WeighMax Digital Kitchen Scale W-2810: Features

In our testing, we found the WeighMax would randomly change the weight it displayed for objects, but these fluctuations were minimal. You can minimize variances by locking the bowl attachment in place to keep it from jiggling. Even so, serious cooks should be aware that this scale is not as precise as others.

The WeighMax Digital Kitchen Scale is made of plastic and looks plain. If often feels wobbly, and the weighing platform comes off quite easily, which exposes the scale’s inner workings. Granted, removing the platform makes it easier to clean. However, it puts the scale at risk of damage from water and other contaminants. The bowl attachment is also made of plastic, and you can put it in the dishwasher.

This digital kitchen scale measures food in pounds, ounces, grams and kilograms, which is standard fare. However, unlike the other models we tested, you can’t switch between units while you use it. If you want to switch from one measurement to another, you must pick up the scale, turn it over and flip a switch on the bottom. The best kitchen scales let you change measurement units from the main interface. 

The device uses four AA batteries, which can power the scale for several months. To conserve power, the WeighMax Digital Kitchen Scale automatically turns off after one and a half minutes.

Should you buy the WeighMax Digital Kitchen Scale W-2810? 

The WeighMax Digital Kitchen Scale W-2810 didn't perform as well as other models we reviewed. Its overall finish and performance really let it down. For a better alternative, check out the Oxo Good Grips food scale.
