Weighing your options on kitchen scales? No need — we’ve found a winner. Whether you’re meal prepping or need precise recipe measurements, the top-rated Etekcity Kitchen Weight Scale has got your back — and it's down to just $10 at Walmart!

If you already use one, you know how essential a scale is to a well-stocked kitchen. But if you're not sure why you’d need yet another gadget, read on.

A good kitchen scale is more accurate than a measuring cup, and that’s crucial for tricky recipes like chocolate soufflé. There are even serious coffee drinkers who measure their grounds by weight. Just sayin’.

Using a scale means less measuring cups and spoons to clean, and less work is always a good idea. Kitchen scales are ideal for portion control — weighing your food can help keep calories in check. They also instantly convert measurements (from ounces to grams, say), great for when you’re trying out a recipe from another country.

Says a fan: "Perfect for weighing my food portions so I can track my food intake. I love that it switches between measures like ounces or grams. It's compact and attractive and looks great sitting on the counter top. I use this every day!"

Have we convinced you yet? Good, then add this kitchen helper to cart stat.

This one checks all the boxes. It’s compact and thin so easily tucks into a drawer or cabinet. And the size is right—small enough that it won’t overpower a countertop if you choose to leave it out but large enough to fit a dinner plate.

It measures in pounds, ounces, grams, milliliters, and fluid ounces. The stainless steel surface looks cool and easily wipes clean. Simply press the “tare” button to deduct the weight of any bowl or plate you choose to use. And the auto-off function means you don’t have to press a button using fingers covered in breadcrumbs.
