E02510 - Kitchrics Digital Food Scale with Nutritional Facts Display
Super easy to use!!
So easy to use and it will help with any diet you are on!!!
Bought scale in July 2008. Thought getting all nutrition data would be a good idea but its too complicated. Ended up using scale for just weight which is fine. I could get a scale for half the price though for that particular use. I gave it 3 stars because it worked fine for just weight until a month ago when I kept getting the 'un st' (unstable) display. Called Kitchrics customer service and they are 'selling' me a new one stainless steel, not plastic,for a discount plus shipping. Still its under $20 total so its worth it. I use the scale almost daily.
This was too complicated. I need to have the book open every time I used it. I should have returned it. I'll probably sell it at a garage sale. Glad it's not available anymore.
Great Scale!...Would Be Excellent If...
It was only water proof and had a light on the screen!! Other than that... Love It !! You can just get the weight of an item. Or use the codes to get the number of calories and food values! You don't have to guess. It's a big aid in weight lost and diabetes. I'll just right my commonly eaten food codes, on a separate sheet of paper and put it on my frige. Very easy to use!! Thanks QVC !!
Great weight loss tool!
I used this to help me lose 19.8 pounds in 18 days on a 600 calorie a day diet. It's quick & easy. Am gearing up for the next round of weight loss, this time 800 calories a day. This is a great tool!
Sensible, Good Product
Easy to use, instructions very clear. This scale should be in everyone's kitchen because it really does keep you concientous of what you are putting into your mouth.
Highly recommend. Works like a dream.
I love this scale. I needed to lose weight, a lot of weight, and it was just the start I needed. Though I would have loved to do a diet like Nutri System, it is cost prohibitive when you are trying to feed others in your family. This way I can eat what my family eats but I can use portion control, and not spend the extra money. It's great. I have already lost nine pounds and am on my way to feeling and getting healthier.I haven't found it difficult to use at all and have been able to add all kinds of foods into the scale. I then printed out most on a sheet and placed it on my refrigerator. Now, my husband is even getting into it.
Good not Great
I purchased this scale for the TOTAL function. One glitch, one cannot add calories without weighing an item. For example, my breakfast shake has the calories listed on the outside of the can. One cannot just key in the known calories given on the can into the scale to be saved and added to the days TOTAL. The same would apply if one went out to eat and the calories are listed on the menu. I called Kitchrics customer service and they confirmed that the TOTAL function only works when weighing the item(s). Custom codes don't work either because you still need to weigh the item(s). When I made this purchase, I didn't think I would have to TARE a cup and then pour my shake from the can into the cup, weigh the cup with the shake and then drink the shake from the cup when the calories were already known. For food portions with unknown calories, this scale is good. Just keep in mind, you will need to manually track calories for items that are not weighed on the scale because you just can't key them in.
The reason why I purchased this scale vs. others is the feature that this scale can keep track of all the items that you have entered for the day. The running total for the day is a great and easy feature. This way i can keep track of soduim and all the other nutritional information each day.
This item is very complicated to use......unless you memorize the codes, you will have to keep your book handy because you can't just weigh items for weight purposes. You have to enter code to get weight and the calorie info. And, if it is not one of the pre-entered codes, you have to enter it yourself and have all the calorie info, etc to get it to work!!! I was not impressed with this at all.
LOVE THIS SCALE
I have had it for over a year and use it every day. along with a workout I have lost weigh. When you use a colorie book you get only a general information on what calories, salt ect have in the item. when you use the scale you know for sure what that item containes. LOVE THIS SCALE.
I still use it!
We have had this for awhile now in our home and we use it! The kids like to see what they are eating. It is a nice to have items and so easy to use.
