Anyone who takes cooking semi-seriously should have a kitchen scale, full stop. In addition to obvious cooking benefits like more consistent results and precise measurements, using one while you prepare dinner can seriously cut down on dirty dishes. Plus, you can use it to weigh mail, and things of that nature.

It's not uncommon to see scales under $20, but rarely do they look as nice as the Ozeri Touch. This model normally sells for around $25, and $17 is the lowest price Amazon has ever offered. [Ozeri Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale, $17]

Bonus: While you're at it, here's a highly rated electric pepper grinder for just $12, also from Ozeri. [Ozeri Graviti Pro Electric Pepper Mill and Grinder, $12]
