New Retro Kitchen Scales from Dotcomgiftshop

So the very short conversation goes like this.

Dotcomgiftshop – would you like the chance to choose and review one thing from our site?


Dotcomgiftshop have so many things on their site including goodies for your home, garden, children and wedding. And with prices starting well within the £5 bracket there is something for everyone. I spent ages trying to choose something that I like more than everything else. People, it was hard as everything was lovely. Eventually I narrowed it down to either a set of retro kitchen scales or their Moorish stoneware range (which mini chef absolutely loves too, so Christmas pressie ideas sorted).

And the retro kitchen scales won.

I mean, I get this baby right here.

And I am kitchen scale happy. Why?

  •          Is it the nice wide bowl that makes measuring easier?
  •          Is it the lovely splash of colour to brighten any kitchen?
  •          Is it its size, so that it is nice and easy to read the measurements?

I don’t know. I just know that they are cool. So from now on when you see some of my recipes and measurements, you will know what I have been using.

So, head over to dotcomegiftshop and grab yourself some scales and other goodies.

Thank you to dotcomegiftshop for sending me these scales.

  6. LOVE it, but then I am a sucker for anything retro! Karen

    • I seem to have joined you in that Karen.

  7. Oh, I do love a retro kitchen! I think the coolest thing ever would be to have a matching red fridge with one of these scales, circa 1950’s style!;-)

    • A red fridge would be so fab. I would looooooooove one.

  8. I have those scales too and I love the look of them, but the bowl is so impractical for pouring things (flour into the sieve) as it has no lip or narrower end, I do get a bit frustrated with it sometimes.

    • Choclette did you get some from the dotcomgiftshop too? I don’t seem to be using a sieve at the moment so I am fine with them. How do you get round it then?

  9. Nice scales. Love the color!

    • The colour goes with my kitchen :)

    • Would be interesting to know why you prefer electronic scales Jacqueline

  11. Love the retro look!
