good investment I wanted to count my calorie intake and this scale does a great job. I think its fun to look up the codes and see the nutritional content of your food. I like the option of the different mode for packaged foods....more info
Awesome I have looked for a really long time for a combination item like this!! It makes the "Chore" of cooking so much easier as you are adding items to you plate you don't have to add everything manually, it does it for you!
Very accurate and has definately helped my healthy eating habits improve now not having to guess at #of calories, protein, carbs etc....more info
fine scale We received this scale last week. We have found it easy to use, and it has been an eye opener to find out how much food really weighs and the calories involved. Wish the book had more items--which is why I'm giving it a 4. We've had multiple things (like english muffins) that aren't in it. It's been great for my teenage girls to reinforce portion control and nutrition....more info
EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale I bought my EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale based on the great reviews on Amazon.com. Keep reading those reviews to know more about the scale. I love the scale because I can easily measure exactly 100 calories of very fattening food when tempted to stray from my diet plan. That alone keeps me honest about calorie intake. I'm finally dropping extra weight that I've carried for years. You may think it is too time-consuming to weigh, measure and write down every calorie, but the scale makes it interesting and easy....more info
Absolutely First-Rate! Unlike other food scales I've used, this one is absolutely accurate and consistent. It is sturdy, attractive, and easy to use. The scale would benefit any serious cook, as well as anyone with concerns about their weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, or any other condition affected by food intake.
The hundreds of food codes cover an amazing array of edibles - even baked potato [skins only], one of my favorite foods! Red and yellow sweet peppers are listed separately, because they have slightly different nutritional values.
And I can enter the label quantity of nutrients in a prepackaged food, then weigh how much I want to eat, and get exact measurements instead of guesstimates of calories, carbs, fat, sodium, fiber, and seven other nutrients. No more trying to use measuring cups and spoons to scoop the precise "serving size" out of the pot, and working to get every last bit on to the plate - I measure what I am actually about to eat, and have an accurate count of everything of interest to me.
The EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale is worth every penny and more to anyone who is serious about nutritional content.
Awesome for Weight Loss/ Portion Control I have had this scale for about two weeks and use it all the time. It is amazing how many calories are in all the little "cheats" I have during the day. It is very sleek and I actually keep it out on the counter. It's super easy to use and the book that comes with it is very well organized. I like the fact that I can use any container to weigh my food; you just have a "zero" the scale with the container on the scale before putting in the food code. Amazon has a great price! I also highly recommend "Master Your Metabolism" by Jillian Michaels....more info
Very pleased with this scale! I bought this scale after reviewing all kinds of varieties. This one was the one that had the best scores. This scale does exactly as it promises and it is extremely helpful to those of us who are trying to eat healthier. I didn't initially want to spend as much as this one costs, but it has been well worth it! The scale is very sleek and modern looking and I don't mind leaving it out on the counters. Overall, you can't go wrong with this scale. ...more info
Excellent product for a diabetic! I love this scale! It was recommended to me by my nutritionist, and I purchased it, being uncertain of whether it would actually help me. In fact, it is excellent for a diabetic, especially if you need to accurately count carbs (and fiber). There is a table of codes for different foods. All you have to do is enter the code for the food you want to know the nutritional info for (VERY EASY), and it then tells you the amount of carbs, fiber (which I never find in other books), etc.
For example, when I ate potatoes before, I always had to guesstimate the amount of carbs. But now, I simply place it on the scale, put in the code for the type of potato (red, brown, etc), and it gives me the amount of carbs (and other nutritional info) for the food. I can then input this information into my insulin pump, with certainty.
There are other features as well, which were described in previous posts, so I won't go into those.
So I must say, I highly recommend this scale to other type 1 diabetics!!...more info
Expectations = met. I bought this scale to assist in maintenance of my diet for boxing competitions. It does exactly what is says and is a quality product. It is easy to clean and once you get the hang of the book, it's straight forward. My favorite feature, which drew me to the scale initially was the ability to input foods not in the book, since that is the majority of my food since I have to cook it myself for the purpose of the diet (knowing exactly what goes into your body is key). I also like that it totals the calories at the end of the day.
4 suggestions though:
1) it should be able to hold more than 5lbs
2) make the tray removable/washable via magnets to assist in cleanliness
3) allow for multiple users
4) allow for the info the scale tracks to be put on a usb drive so i can hook it up to a database on my computer ...more info
great product! great, easy to use scale and exactly the right size to be left out on the counter. highly recommend!...more info
EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale Very good product that does exactly what we need--measure calories/nutrients based on either the preprogrammed food type, or calculate in accordance with the food nutrition label on the product. Quality and precision of measurement is much better than my older scale. Very pleased with this purchase....more info
Works Like A Charm I purchased the "EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale - Professional Food and Nutrient Calculator" to help me better control myglucose level after I was diagnosed as pre diabetic. I use it in preparing all my meals and as a result have been able to keep my levels well within what my doctor recommends and I would recommend this scale for anyone who need to control their diet....more info
Acurate I bought this scale after reading the reviews. I have not been disappointed. I needed a scale that would be Extremely accurate because I am on a restricted calorie diet; I have to say that this scale fits the bill. I tested it by using the same Item and placed it on the scale over and over again; I put it in the same spot and in different spots and the scale read it the same every time. The features work great. I love the tare function, but it would be nice if it was back lit. Some reviews say it is hard to see with a large object on it and I can see how that could be a problem, however I have not run into it. the platform is large enough that you can push the plate towards the back so that it over hangs and bit, that way you can read it. I have to say the print is small, but readable. All the buttons on the front work great, are easy to find, and use. This scale has helped me a lot and I definitely would recommend it; in fact, I have!...more info
Great scale, very helpful I have used this scale for a few weeks now. It really shows whether you are eating too much or too little.
The only scale worth purchasing Another reviewer also agrees with my opinion -- I wish I would have discovered this food scale before investing in the Saltier 1450. This product is by far the only one worthy of investing your money, time and effort into using. If you are committed to monitoring your nutrition intake, portion control this is the product to use. It is well constructed and extremely easy to use. Again, I only wish I had discovered this before investing in the other scale -- I guess another item for a garage sale or e-bay. This is the one to buy!...more info
Great Scale This scale is great. It has a low profile but is very stylish.
I love the tare feature and that I can toggle between grams and ounces in a flash....more info
A great kitchen tool I love this scale! I use it many times a day because I am tracking my calorie intake. By using this scale, I have noticed that the measures and corresponding calorie values on packages aren't always exact, so with this tool I can be more accurate. It is also handy to calculate the nutrient value of ingredients in recipes I make. I find it easy to use and it doesn't take up a lot of space on my counter. Before I bought this, I looked at other nutritional scales, and this one had more features. It is an investment well worth it!...more info
Great Scale! I purchased this scale as we are watching our weight and my daughter is diabetic. This is the greatest scale. So easy to use and it tells you everything. Really makes you be more aware of what you eat. I didn't realize the calorie content of some foods. Also for my daughter who has to watch her carbs, you can tell how much is in a whole plate of food instead of having to count each item individually. Plus it looks nice out on my counter. Couldn't have picked a better product....more info
This is a Awesome food scale I really like this scale a lot and my family really enjoys useing it. I have actually thought of purchasing this for each of my childrens families....more info
EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale I absolutely loved the scale but had to return it because it was not functioning properly. When I went to sum up my foods for a meal, I had to press the button several times to add another item. There was no was this was correct. I did manage to do it sometimes without a hitch so I could tell it was a great feature, it's just that mine was malfunctioning. I kept weighing the same items to sum and the totals kept coming out the same so the scale was definitely accurate. The return was simple at no cost to me and I was credited within a couple weeks....more info
Most helpful product there is for nutrition help and dieting! This product is so helpful! I'm one of you that never writes a review. I simply had to for this scale as it is sooo EASY and I use it several times a day. It is such a reliable kitchen help/companion that I almost talk to it. It takes the guessing out of portions!
I read the countless positive reviews and now am glad to add mine. It is well worth the price. My primary goal related to nutrition in relation to calories as at age 59 I have decided to get in shape and lose some extra pounds. I was tracking calories in a book for the first few months. This has made that even easier. This helps to determine portions also.
I affirm the ease of use of this scale and the fact that it takes very little room on our counter. Also, my husband is using it also. We had read The China Study by T. Colin Campbell on a plant-based diet. That changed our lives! At age 58 & 59 we have made major diet changes. That is why we ordered the Eat Smart Scale. We are very happy with it!...more info
Awesome product A great product. Does exactly what it's supposed to do, only much better than I ever dreamed possible. Great for foods without nutrition labels but also extremely valuable for foods with nutrition information because it tells you exactly how much you're eatings. Very well made, would highly recommend to others, including to my patients. Will likely recommend that patients in our Pediatric Obesity clinic use it for more accurate nutritional information....more info
Stick To Your Diet & Save Money This is the perfect weight management tool. We know that diets that require leaving out specific foods don't last very long. With my EatSmart Scale I can eat anything in any amount that I choose while still counting calories. This scale also allows me to save money because I do not have to buy small or individual packages which can be a ripoff. All I have to do is pour out the amount of a food I want to consume and use the calculator to find out how many calories are in my serving. EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale - Professional Food and Nutrient Calculator...more info
EatSmart Nutritional Scale The EatSmart Nutritional Scale has been a huge help in keeping track of the calories and carbs I take in on a daily basis. The scale makes it possible to know the exact nutritional value of every meal which is extremely important so certain people with health issues. The scale is easy to uese and a high guality product for a reasonable price. The only negative is that it is difficult to determine the nutritional value of foods where the serving size is measured by volume not weight....more info
EatSmart Scale The EatSmart Nutrition Scale is a quality product. It is very well made and easy to use. It is a great addition to any kitchen. ...more info
A great tool to manage your diet This scale is a great tool to help you manage your diet. The food database is large and convenient to use. Managing ingredients using the tare weight feature is a snap! The scale has a stylish appearance and doesn't make me want to put it away when I'm not using it.
I love this scale!!! I have owned diet scales before but never one that calculates a food's calories at the same time. First and foremost I wanted a scale that was very accurate. Because this one was recommended by well-known weight control programs, I assumed it had to be very accurate and of good quality. And it is. Honestly, prior to receiving the scale, I wasn't sure if the "food counting" aspect would be useful or just an extra feature I would ignore. Now, I don't use my computer diet tracking or calorie counting books at all. I only use this scale. It is by far the best one I've ever owned. I eat a lot of whole foods so this scale is ideal for my diet. It is sooo much faster and easier than either using a calorie book, or the computer diet programs where you keep a computerized food log and have to look up each food, then type in the amount you have measured to get the calories and nutrition info. It is intuitive and super quick to use the code book and measure the food. It is also really helpful to see in real time how many calories a portion is just by placing it on the scale- allowing you to quickly add and subtract amounts of food to get the number of calories you want. (I'm not sure if I'm explaining this right, but you will know what I mean when you use the scale.) It definately beats trying to do it in reverse by measuring the food then looking up the calories. I never thought a scale would inspire me to stick to my diet, but this one has. I actually look forward to measuring my meals with it! Not only has really helped me meet my daily calorie goals, but using the scale has made my diet choices more flexible. And I'm learning alot about the nutrition and portion sizes of the food choices I make. I have not used the more advanced features like entering custom foods or the "additive" feature- it's just faster and easier to me to weigh each food separately then add the calories up myself. (One note- there is a very slight delay when you add an additional amount of food before the calories "update" to the new total- so be sure to give it a second to register before removing your portion from the scale to get accurate counts.) In conclusion, I absolutely love this scale and can't recommend it enough to any one who wants an easy to use, very accurate, and even inspiring way to keep track of your diet....more info
Great kitchen tool. This is one of the best things in my kitchen. I use it almost daily. It is especially helpful for diabetics & those who are really interested in what they are eating. There are several features & they all work well. I had a previous scale from another company. I trashed it. It didn't stay on long enough to weigh anything. You won't go wrong with the EatSmart....more info
Great for portioning This handy scale works great to determine portion sizes. I like that it has the 2 modes for determining calories and nutrition. It can be used by either entering the pre-programmed data or by entering the information from the nutrition label from the food. It can be eye-opening to see just how big (or small) a portion really is. This scale makes it easy to keep track of calories. I would highly recommend this product....more info
great for a variety of user needs I am a type-II diabetic and my wife is starting a new diet regimen where she needs more nutritional information about the foods she prepares. We examined several different nutritional scales and found the eatsmart to be the most user-friendly and full featured. We even use it to double check the nutritional labels on prepared foods and it's amazing how far off they can be. If you need to carefully monitor the food you eat, or want to start eating healthier, this scale is a great tool in that fight....more info
Great for Diabetics My 2 year old is diabetic and this scale works great to measure his carbohydrates. It's quick and easy to use. ...more info
Best scale on the market I am a bit of a food scale snob.(I own 7, but don't tell my husband)
I am a pediatric dietitian, practicing in the field for 30 years.
This is the only scale that has common foods programmed in and allows you to take any product that you have with a food label and input the data.
I find that most folks will look at a food label, identify the carbohydrate content of the reference portion size, but then fail to measure or weight the portion size. As a result, the carbohydrate count is off.
When I demonstrate this product to the kids I work with, they want to keep "playing". I love it when playing translates to learning to visually estimate portions. This company has been wonderful and thoughtfully listens to all my "wish" lists.
I use this scale both professionally and personally.
Have had it for a while now... Very pleased I have used my EatSmart scale now for a few months and I am very pleased with it. I was a little apprehensive at first as I am not very computer savvy. However I found the manual very easy to follow and didn't have a problem learning how to us it at all. It is easy to use and as others have stated looks good in my kitchen. I have already recommended this to several family members and friends and will continue to do so. Try it, I think you will be impressed....more info
User Friendly This product was so easy to use and looks great.
Within minutes of opening the package i was able to use all the functions.
I wish there were more of the preprogramed foods but what is there is awesome.
this is great for a person needing to track their intake (protein, carbs, etc) Diabetic Weight loss surgical patients which i am, a great tool!...more info
Tools that make your job easier Doctors have tools. Carpenters and plumbers have tools. If you have a big job or project to undertake, chances are you'll need quality, effective tools.
I'm using this scale as a tool to help me lose weight. I need a compact, efficient and durable kitchen scale to show me what portion sizes actually look like.
I am an active duty soldier living in the barracks. My space is limited and I don't have a kitchen of my own so I have to make the best of my conditions. This scale really suits my needs and is great at showing me the calorie costs in the food I serve myself.
It's pretty easy to use once you read the manual and it stores with minimal space usage. It's light, accurate and I think it's going to last a long time.
There are a lot of similar products available but I think this particular scale is the highest quality and most effective tool for the job. ...more info
EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale: Good & not so good I looked at many digital nutrition scales online before purchasing this one. Having Type I Diabetes and being a "carb" counter, it was time for an update and I kept going back to this one and was looking forward to using it. I thought I wanted all the bells and whistles it has to offer. While I like the general size and design for weighing, especially the ease of the tare feature, from then on it goes downhill for me. Visually, I am having great difficulty and my husband, who has excellent eye sight agrees - it is tough to read the LCD display which is considerably smaller than it appears online. Also, it gives so much information that I have found I'm having to ignore what isn't essential for me and fccus on what information I mostly need - carbs plus calories and fats or protein plus calories and fats, etc. You have to go through a progression of button pushing and data entry to get data beyond calories - i.e. carbs and fats. And, feedback is given via different window "groups" of 4 you have to scroll through to get what you want. It just takes so long my food is getting cold or my family impatient while I'm trying to get the information I need for dosing and recordkeeping. I find myself getting frustrated by the whole method as it is, for me, more laborious than I ever anticipated. Then, there is the option of entering information from the food label - one of the aspects I was especially interested in. Maybe it will get easier. That was a big selling point for me and I find the marketing misleading as I thought once I entered all the information from the nutrition label, it would add it to the memory "up to 99". Well, that is not how it works. It will keep items in its memory for counting for a day or week. But, it doesn't keep those products permanently in its memory that I can figure out. So, it's okay but not as user friendly as I thought it would be from all the positive reviews I read - and I do read them....more info
Rodney Dear sir,
The Eat Smart Digital Nutrition Scale that I purchased from you,is a God send. I have diabetes and need to watch my sugar, carbs, & calories and this scale helps me to do just that, and more. I also have heart & kidney problems, so I am helped with those problems too.
Thank you so much for your wonderful product.
Excellent tool to track your diet I purchased this item about a month ago to keep track of my carbohydrate intake. Of course you can keep track of 12 different nutritional values of 1000 different foods with this item but my major concern at this time was carbs. I love the build a meal and calculator functions in it. With this scale I have been able to control my blood sugar better than I was ever able to before. I put it in my back pack and take it to restaurants with me. I have checked the accuracy by comparing it with some authentic sources. In short I can not say enough good things about this product....more info
Digital scale I am very pleased with the Eatsmart Digital Scale, I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because of the limited food codes. It has listings for all healthy foods. We should all eat healthy foods all the time but we all know that doesn't happen. For instance they should include fried foods also....more info
Quality Product - Simple to use Scale was shipped quickly and was as described. Simple to use and well-built. A quality product in all respects!...more info
A useful and elegant tool for managing my food intake After visiting stores and looking at all types of scales, after researching the Internet, reading other peoples' reviews, and discussing with two nutrition specialists, I decided to purchase the EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale.
It's been only a few days since it arrived, and I'm still experimenting with it, but I made the right choice. The scale looks great, is easy to use, and my food intake management got much better. I like the tare function and the dual mode (by type of food or by the package label).
Why then only four stars?
I grew up in Eastern Europe and I am not your typical North American food consumer. The booklet contains about 1000 food codes, but still some of my favorites are missing, while some of those foods I see in the booklet I'd never touch. I'm missing a way of adding my favorites to the scale default list. The compromise is to use similar equivalents instead.
The second thing I'm missing is an easy and simple way of finding the nutritional values of portions of home made complex foods. No other scale offers such a function either. I guess "easy" and "complex" don't mix well.
All in all, I'm happy with my new toy. It looks great, it's very useful, and it's fun to use.
Great Diet Tool and Stylish Too This is a great diet tool! One of the hardest things about dieting is determining actual calories and the EatSmart Digital Nutrition Scale makes doing this very easy. I like the style of the scale, very clean and sleek. Looks good on the Kitchen counter, which makes me use it every meal. K. Quintana...more info
Great scale! I was very impressed with the Digital Nutrition Scale that I purchased. It was well worth the money that I paid. The scale helped my husband and I learn how to portion-size our meals and told us about the carbs and fat grams. This scale went great with the Calorie King Counter book and Journal. By far, this is the best diet I have ever been on and it wants me continue to strive for better lifetime eating practices....more info
EatSmart Scale I love this scale. It's very accurate, looks great, and it's easy to switch between ounces and grams. the "tare" function lets you continue to zero out the scale, so you can continue to add foods, zeroing the scale out between additions, for something like a salad. It calculates the calories and other nutritional data for many common foods. Simply put the food on the scale and enter the 3 digit code from the enclosed book. It will also calculate nutrition based on data you enter. I'm very happy with my purchase....more info
Very Satisfied We have found our scale to be very accurate and easy to use. We would highly recommend this product to anyone. I think the ease of use is exceptional.
Too bad there isn't a six star rating I've struggled for years with weight and logging food. EatSmart changed a chore to a minor task on the road to staying healthy.
The EatSmart scale makes it so easy and I don't have to worry about accuracy. Punch in the three numbers and I'm done. It's a great value for the price. And it sure beats thumbing through food guides and having t wonder if the information is correct or an average.
There is no doubt with the scale. No more guessing.
It helps me most when I'm working with new recipes that I plan to use more than once. It's so easy to calculate the calories for an entire recipe and then divide by the number of servings.
I have only one small suggestion. If you ever redo the interface on the display, consider displaying the nutrient information in the same order as it appears on a nutrition label on the food. Most food logs are geared to that method.
Truly a gem! This has been a great investment! It helps in cooking to get precise measurements; it helps in "rationing" out food - often times 1 oz. of chips is not what the 'about 15 chips' for example, really is; it makes cooking MUCH easier; you can zero the scale out with a plate or bowl or anything on it so you can contain the food. It has so many food codes, and if you have the information and want 1 1/2 servings of something, it tells you exactly what you're putting in your body. I highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone. If I could give it 10 stars, I would!...more info
Eat Smart Scale works The EatSmart Nutritional Scale is easy to use in the normal mode. You can easily figure out the total nutritional value for an entire meal of foods that are bulk such as fruits, vegetables, grains, etc. using the Nutritional Guide provided. For foods that already have nutritional information on packaging you can add the value of a single nutritional element such as carbohydrate to the meal total.
The video demo on the EatSmart website is very helpful to better understand the use of the scale....more info
Best i found! After researching many various digital nutrition scales, i finally decided to go with the EatSmart scale. I am so pleased with it, find it easy to use once you learn the ins and outs of the code book, and love the sleek look. I have learned to place some wax paper over the glass top to avoid getting it so dirty, but once i figured that out, clean up was a breeze. ...more info
An excellent addition for any diabetic An excellent scale. It has really helped us get control of portion sizes, and as a result we've maintained better control of blood sugars.
The food library is nice; we wish that the food codes would match the produce codes that are in use in the grocery (4011 = banannas, etc...). Overall a very nice product!...more info
