Smeg has launched some wonderful new products this season: espresso machines, portable induction hobs, and countertop ovens. I love them all, but my favorite is actually one of their more understated products: weighing scales.

The Smeg digital scales are a kitchen classic. The stylish design combines a vintage silhouette with precision technology. They're available in a range of classic colors with premium stainless steel finishes. They're sensitive, easy to use, and neatly designed, what's not to love?

If you want to make your kitchen look more luxurious, these are a must. I've got everything you need to know, including a 20% discount.

Smeg knows exactly how to make practicalities pretty. Even though the brand hasn't ever made digital scales before, if you glanced at these, you would think they had been making them since the brand was founded.

The digital scales come with all the signature Smeg details: curved edges, chrome finishes, and classic colors. You can pick up a set in white, black, or emerald green, all in matte finishes.

If you're someone who likes a kitchen that's as delicious to look at as it is to eat from, you need these. They're close to a design piece as well as being really practical too.

What are the details of Smeg's digital scales?

You'll be pleased to know that these scales can boast both brains and beauty. They come with a removable stainless steel bowl with 11 pounds of capacity. I can't overstate the usefulness of this. You fill it with flour and then carry it across the kitchen to your bowl or stand mixer. You won't need to mess up containers or constantly zero the same set of scales.

This design isn't particularly innovative, in fact, my grandma's scales worked on the same principles (without the digital LCD screen, of course). I'm pleased that Smeg have brought back this design because they were wonderful to use twenty years ago and I've been searching for a good-quality replica of them since.

The scales are cordless, of course, but if you want to enjoy the LCD display, you'll need to plug a USB charging cable (included) into your set. You can use the scales whilst it's charging, so you'll never be caught short.

The digital interface can convert between four different units of measurement: g/ml lb.oz/fl.oz. This means that you can work with any recipe, again, without having to dirty other utensils in your kitchen. You'll also be able to make use of the tare function if you want to weigh more than one ingredient into the bowl at once.

Where can I buy the Smeg Digital Scales?

As these are a new launch, they're not available in all the typical third-party retailers yet. I imagine they will be in the next few months, but, for now, your best bet is either directly from Smeg or from Tattahome. Here are the details for each retailer:
