Official Foldaway Travel Scale of my home planet


Memories... of the way we got here.


But I digress.

Leigh Lambert of the Washington Post brought this device


to my attention in a brief review which appeared in the June 21 Food section.

    She wrote:

    You don't have to be a traveling dieter to appreciate the Tanita KD-400 foldaway travel model.


    It could help with portion control while you're on the road, and its features also include a weighted stainless-steel base, 11-pound [5 kg] weight capacity and tare function.

    The fold-up display creates a narrow, vertical footprint that can fit right in on the cookbook shelf.


"Portion control while you're on the road?"


You gotta be kidding — the only redeeming factor of traveling is being able to enjoy all the junk food you like, without your thought police casting a gimlet eye on every Pringle.


Measures 6.5" in diamter, weighs 1.4 pounds.

$59.99 at Amazon (put Tanita KD-400 into the search box).


Word origin for "tare" here.
