    We have been using a basic kitchen scale to measure DD's food and are interested in getting a scale with a nutritional database. I like the looks of the Perfect Portions scale, but I keep reading on here about the Salter scale. Does anyone know where I could purchase one? The ones I am finding online don't seem to have the database. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, the Salter 1450 was discontinued back in 2011, and has become exceedingly hard to find. The last place I knew who carried them was Drugstore.com, but they no longer have them.

    Sorry!

    We ordered a Salter Scale through AMazon. I use it pretty regularly to weigh things like cereal and to weigh fruit. Those always gave me some trouble.

    I've been browsing online for a scale similar to the one you're looking for. I found a salter scale with a database that has about 900 food items.

    http://www.oldwillknottscales.com/salter-1406.html

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but it was one of the few scales I found that actually have a database. Hope this helps!

    That's what I was afraid of. We bought a perfect portions scale at Bed Bath and Beyond today so hopefully it will work well for us.
