The brushed stainless steel platforms can be used in unison to give you accurate measurements whilst you prepare your food. Heston and his team at the Fat Duck experimental kitchens take pride in accuracy and precision within their recipes and this is reflected in the dual precision scale. Two platforms with different functions covers all the bases in this nifty kitchen accessory.

Dual platforms

High capacity platform: great for accurately weighing ingredients up to 10kg, measuring in 1g increments

Ultimate precision platform: weigh ingredients as light as 0.1g for precise measurements

You can weigh ingredients directly onto the platform surfaces, or in bowls with the helpful “add & weigh” function. Use the aquatronic feature to measure liquids by changing the units to ml or fl.oz.

Sleek design

This kitchen scale is slim and stylish with red accents along the sides for a modern finish. Measuring 26cm x 17.5cm, the scale is small enough to store away neatly and big enough to help you prepare your food efficiently and quickly, no excuse for not getting creative in the kitchen!


The first of its kind on the market, Heston’s dual platform lets you measure precious ingredients as light as 0.1g on the ultimate precision surface and ingredients up to 10kg on the high capacity surface. With this set-up you can weigh ingredients at the same time without hassle.

Backlit display

The dual display shows you measurements for each platform on one backlit LCD. The positioning and clarity of the screen makes it easy to read measurements and quickly prepare your food, you’ll be cooking in no time!

Designed by experts in the field of accuracy and precision, Heston’s dual scales inspire confidence and make a great gift for any budding chef or even those just getting started! Transform the culinary experience with this incredibly reliable dual precision kitchen scale.


Add and Weigh

Use the ‘Add and Weigh’ function to weigh multiple ingredients in the same bowl. This feature subtracts the weight of the bowl and only measures the new ingredient added. Simply reset the scales after each ingredient and then add the next to save time. This feature makes cooking quicker by reducing multiple cooking bowls and minimising the washing-up.


The Aquatronic feature has the ability to measure liquids without the need for a measuring jug. Simply choose your preferred unit of measurement (ml or fl. oz) and add the ingredient to the bowl. Suitable for all water based liquids (including wine, milk, stock, cream etc), there are no excuses for not trying out that new ice cream recipe!
