The 9 Best Price Computing Scales

video play icon

This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Price computing scales are used by businesses to calculate how much to charge customers based on the weight of an item. They are often found in delis, grocery stores, and at farmers' markets. We included models well suited to these applications, as well as units designed for use in shipping facilities and other industries where larger and heavier objects are weighed regularly. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 20, 2021:

Used primarily for food, these scales not only weigh the items, but can calculate the price, too. Depending on the products they will be used for there are several features that will determine the best choice for you: For wet items such as fish, meat, or seafood, a waterproof model, such as the Camry Waterproof, the VisionTechShop Dual Display, or the Torrey PC, is a good choice as it can be thoroughly washed down after use. For fruit and vegetables or other dry foods, a decent-sized platter adds convenience, while some like the CAS LP1000 and the Aclas No Plug have memory functions, allowing more than one customer to be served at once.

Larger options are ideal for weighing in bulk or for boxed items. The Giantex EP24065 is a floor standing option with a 660-pound capacity and a rechargeable battery that lasts for 72 hours. The Easigo Electronic also has a battery that can maintain power for 20 hours of continual service, which should get you through local power outages, whereas the Aclas No Plug has a power-saving design that is claimed can function for two years on a single set of batteries.

Choosing the best price computing scales, we prioritized accuracy over everything else, since if it isn't accurate then the other features don't really matter. After that, we tried to include a range of different styles and prices to fit a variety of needs. We also included both NTEP-certified and non-certified models since we realize users have very different needs from these items.
