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.

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. .

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).

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