    We're going on vacation in a few weeks, renting a house. Though the kitchen should be equipped, I'm planning on taking a set of collapsible measuring cups and measuring spoons and a scale. We have Taylor digital scale, but I thought I'd look for a portable or smaller one.

    Any recommendations?

    TIA

    We have the travel size of the Salter scale, it works well and we like it. Hope you have a great vacation! :cwds:

    We use the Salter scales...love them. Where did you get your collapsible measuring cups? (I have been looking for some?)

    We *will* use the portable Salter

    It's at my mom's house, awaiting our arrival. :D Love the full sized one. :)

    I went online to the Salter website and could no longer find the 1450 the big one or the 1440 The Nutriweigh and Go. Evidently they are not selling them at the Salter website but you can still find them on other websites such as Amazon.

    Wow, our endo team doesn't like if we rely too much on weighing everything.
    I mentioned getting a portable scale and they looked at me like I had 3 eyes.:eek:
    They say once in a while to get the eyes "retrained", yes, then use a scale, but not for all the time.

    We have Salters, not the travel size, and they are flat and lightweight. Can easily fit in a tote.
