Form follows function.
I’ve always held this to be true. It means that how a product looks is secondary to how a product works. If it doesn’t do the job, it doesn’t matter how pretty it is. Make sense?
This Ozeri Epicurean Digital Kitchen Scale manages to work very well and be gorgeous at the same time.
I was offered a scale in return for my honest opinion about it. I agreed for two reasons:
1. I really need a new kitchen scale
2. It’s gorgeous! Did I mention that?
When I performed the un-boxing, I was a little startled as to just how shiny and futuristic it really was. It’s a round glass weighing surface seems to float atop a curved bottom with a mirror finish. My first fear was simple. I have three kids – how often am I going to have to be polishing this thing? Turns out, I rarely have to. It’s rather fingerprint resistant.
When you first turn it on, the bright green digital display greets you with a friendly, “Hi.”
It toggles between ounces and grams, and will hold up to 5000g or 176 ounces. I did the math for you – that’s 11 pounds!
It of course has a tare function, runs on four little AAA batteries, and takes up very little space in the kitchen. It’s good looking enough that it doesn’t need to be tucked away when not in use.
I can’t find anything to complain about. It’s protected by the Ozeri warranty for up to a year from the date of purchase. I’ve had mine for a couple of weeks now, and have absolutely no problems or regret endorsing this little marvel.
