I have been cooking regularly from the two Ottolenghi cookbooks which employ metric measurement and I need advice about purchasing a new scale (preferably digital) to precisely measure both small and large quantities of ingredients. I would deeply appreciate advice regarding this purchase.

Cooks Illustrated recommends several digital scales. These are at the top of the list, and both measure in 1 gram increments.

Salter makes good flat scales that tare acturately. Also there is a button on the bottom where you can switch measurments from ounces to grams according to your preference (metric being best).

I have the Salter 1010 model. Its very easy to use, but the digital display is hard to read unless you're in a really bright area - the display is pretty dark. .
