Whether you resolved to eat better in the new year or up your baking game, your kitchen needs to be stocked with the tools to make your promise to yourself feasible — and way less stressful.

A kitchen scale does just that: It tells you exactly how much of an ingredient you’re using in a recipe, which helps with portion control. No need to guess at exactly what a “pinch” or a “handful” means again — you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into at all times.

While there’s no shortage of great scales out there, Amazon shoppers believe they found the best one: the Greater Goods Digital Kitchen Scale, and it’s on sale for $8 right now. Amazon’s No. 1 best-seller, it’s got quite the fan base to back it up — over 54,000 five-star reviews!

Why so popular? For starters, it’s super sleek and looks at home in any kitchen decor. It’s available in a range of colors — all of which are on sale — though the gray one is marked down the most, to just $8. It can handle up to 11 pounds, and four sensors promise an accurate read, down to 0.1 ounce. You can also subtract the weight of the container, right on the scale.

Shoppers dig the scale so much for its accuracy:

“I LOVE this scale,” one shopper shared. “It is so slim, lightweight and compact! It's easy to store and easy to use. I can choose between lbs and oz, grams, and even fluid oz and ml. It's easy to zero out the container weight with the press of one button. Measurements have been accurate: I just weighed parsley leaf by leaf.”

Even nutritionists recommend it:

“I've always had trouble with portion control so I hired a nutritionist and she recommended this for me and I love it!” a shopper reported. “It helps SO much with my portions and making sure my micronutrients stay in place!”

In short, this small (but mighty) scale is a downright miracle worker:

“So I recently started a special diet, doctor ordered, and this scale has been a lifesaver!” a shopper shared. “I've never been good at serving sizes without measuring, but this has created a world of change! Super easy to clean and accurate so far...”
