    I have looked all over the net and wonder where is the best place to purchase egg weight scales. I keep seeing the same one at different prices. And imho, they are pricey.
    Anyone know where I can purchase one at a good price?
    Thanks bunches.
    And I wasn't sure if this was the right place to put this topic. Couldn't figure out where it should go.

    Are you wanting new or used? What's the most you're wanting to pay? Have you tried looking on ebay or craigslist? If you want new, cutler's supply has one just under $30. [​IMG]

    I just use my mail scale - it's digital and I tare it to zero with a bowl on it, then put the egg in the bowl to weigh it.

    I was going to buy a new one that said how much a small, medium, large or jumbo egg weighed. I weigh them now in my kitchen scale but when I am sorting them out for packaging I would like to put them in the cartons that are closely matched with the sizes. I have to do a lot of juggling to find which one "looks" like the same size and then weigh the whole dz when I am done to make sure it is for a large assortment for customers.
    Maybe just point me to where it shows how much each size of egg weighs. I can't even find that on the net.

    Thanks everyone![​IMG]

    dbcooper02, nice link but that is for an opened egg and I need to know the size of an egg in the shell.
    I appreciate all the feed back.

    Ok. How about this then? If the numbers haven't changed over the years.
