"We Entertain When It Rains"  



We have a few scales in the RainyDayKitchen.  Some of them are easier to use than others.  None of them looked as nice as this one from Eva Solo :-)

When we first unpacked this Eva Solo kitchen scale, everyone just looked at the pieces and thought... that's all ?  Where is the digital readout? Where is the power cord? What... no backup battery compartment?

The entire package consisted of a glass sleeve, a steel spring, and a stainless steel measuring canister. To assemble the scale, one just put the spring in the glass sleeve, put the steel canister on the spring... done.

The ONLY of note is to make sure the spring is oriented the right way... see photo above.  The little metal piece need to point up.  It's to stop the metal canister from going all the way to the bottom.

The weight "readouts" are markings on the glass sleeve.  There are also graduated markings on the inside of the metal canister enabling it to be used as a large measuring cup.

Before any scale can work correctly it must be "zero-ed" so the weight of the container is not added to the measurement.  On the Eva Solo scale, this function takes less than a second with no complicated training:  Just turn the metal canister until the spiral black line on the canister is aligned with the "zero" marking on the glass sleeve!

This way of "zero-ing or taring" the scale also allows the user to add some stuff, zero the scale again, add some more stuff...etc.  Very convenient!

All the pieces are dishwasher safe, so clean up should be a breeze. The scale was designed for compact storage.  Just move the spring from under to inside the metal canister.  The entire unit is now no bigger than the outer glass cylinder.  Most scales are too big to leave out, but this one is so compact that it was easy to find a spot on the counter for it.

In the FirstUse review, we'll compare this scale with two others. We'll find out just how simple this kitchen scale really is to use.
