Gamma Centerpoint Scale

Yugh

True confession: I bought this scale years ago, the first time I saw a picture of it in a catalog.

I mean, look at it.

Guess what: it's even more stylish in person.

And built: this baby is heavy metal and thick tempered glass.

"Strain gauge technology and a load cell calibrated for off–center loading."

"Accomodates for vibration, out-of–level conditions and other interference."

Extra–large 1"–high LCD readout displays weight measured to 0.1 lb.

Yes, it's accurate and all but who really cares?

I haven't used mine in years but I still like the way it looks.

There's something to be said for things whose surface allure continues to appeal after the passage of time.

$76.80 here.

Made by Soehnle, a German company which also manufactures my trusty postage scale (below).

It costs $29.99 here.

Very, very accurate.

Just because it's advertised as a food scale for the kitchen doesn't mean you have to use it that way.

I have the same round scale and love it... unlike most other scales that you want to hide in a closet.
