That's a nice scale, wysiwyg. However, I have a counter space "issue" in my kitchen and it would be a bit problematic because of it's design. My Salter scale is compact enough that I just prop it up against the back splash of my counter.
I also have to say that my scale can be had for about $49 and does everything the Soehnle scale does.

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!
I had a Soehnle and I had nothing but problems with it and they did replace it for me once. But it stopped working again so I finally threw it out. I had paid 70.00 for it which is twice the price of the My Weigh. The My Weigh does more and costs less and has a lifetime warranty, Soehnle does not. I think its 1 year now.
Thank you for the feedback, I own a Soenhle but is to measure people's weight and % of fat and has been fine for about 4 years. I thought the kitchen scale would be also very reliable, specially after reading Cook's Illustrated. I see I was wrong.
