    Are they worth buying?

    i really like the look of them but at £40 they're pretty pricey.

    I just use ordinary digital scales - they are fine for me, if you are going to get some, make sure they can weigh small amounts in grams x

    I have the old ones i brought about 2 years ago, so mine wont be updated but they are defo worth buying.

    When i first started i was confused when i put pork loin and online it came up at 4.5 for one and when i weighed one out it was really low and 2 came up at 4.5 so infact i was gonna have one instead of two if i didnt have the scales. I weigh everything on it and i stick to that one for the points.

    Reason i got mine is that there was a voucher in one of the packs at beginning of year with so much off so i grabbed quickly :D

    I am on my second set ( dropped the 1st lot into the washing up bowl,apparently they dont like water-just a little tip for you !) so the fact that i replaced them speaks volumes. would be without them and dont forget you can use them as ordinary kitchen scales too so they aren't just a ww gimmick

    yeah i had a money off voucher but lost it :( i may purchase them then. thanks for your input, i have ordinary scales but they're the old school ones with a bowl on one side and the weights on the other. very pretty but only good for baking really.

    yeah i gave up eating steak coz there was no nutritional info and i dont like going by the books so i may purchase some with tips i earn at work as i cant justify spending my actual wages on the scales.

    But surely if you know that beef steak is 5 points for 225g, you can easily work out how many points in your steak after you ahve weighed it. Sorry, just that been toying with idea of getting them, but they are expensive, and want to know they are just not a gimmick. Thanks

    WW ones are worth every penny! I love mine, wouldnt go back to regular scales now at all. If you cant afford the new ones, try ebay, the ones I have are the round, older style ones which you can pick up quite reasonably.

    If mine broke though I wouldnt hesitate in replacing them. Definitely worth the money :)

    Definitely not. Theyre invaluable, and you can get extra food for your points using them :giggle:
