Bottom Line: This Scale belongs in an Art Museum,  but works even better in my kitchen!
Positive Product Points

This is one super-cool scale.  The display is animated,  so it shows pictures as I weigh.  It's hard to describe,  but it sort of shows pictures on the display as it weighs.   It's a very accurate scale and reads down to 1 gram and up to 2000 grams.  I like the glass top and the design of this scale.

Negative Product Points

The only bad things are that it cost a bit more for this scale compared to some of the stuff that I saw on Ebay.  But my last scale was bought on ebay and died after just 3 months.  My old scale was an Escali so you may want to avoid that name.

Detailed Commentary

I didn't realize that I was going to have to write such a long review.  I just needed a new scale because my last scale broke,  so I went online and searched around,  I came across www.scalemagazine.com and ended up finding this new digital scale with an animated display called the iScale. I like the newer cooler stuff (like my Handspring Treo 600) so I figured that was the scale for me.  Good thing,  because this scale is REALLY fun to use and looks like it belongs in the MOMA (museum of modern art) rather then my kitchen.    

Even my wife loves it - and she's very picky.

The glass top is very easy to clean and the scale is really easy to operate,  it only uses one button so it's hard to mess up :)

Buying Experience

I had a very positive experience with www.canadianweigh.com.   My questions were answered by the owner directly,  a nice lady named Liz
