Salter's new "Nutri-Weigh Slim Electronic Scale" accurately calculates the nutritional value of 999 foods and displays their nutritional results on the screen.

Aimed at those carefully watching their diet, the scales will display calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, salt, cholesterol and fibre content of the foods.

The scale has a memory function which means users can total up the nutritional values for all the components of one meal, or a day's or week's food.

In addition, there's an "Add & Weigh" function as well as "Aquatronic" feature that measures liquids.

The scale is on sale now for £44.99 available from department stores, supermarkets, independent cooking shops and online.
