I have a salton digital scale - about $20. Cn't speak for anyone else, but i love mine and use it every day for something or other. Weighs in ounces and grams, and you can reset when baking so you can add more ingredients in by weight. Anyway, I'm geeking out talking about it - in a nutshell, it's a good investment. Only "bad" thing is that it is battery powered (Nickel cadmium), so you have to spend money on new batteries every once in a while - depends on how often you use it i guess.
