Etekcity Digital Multifunction Food Kitchen Scale Review (EK4150 vs EK6212)

#1 Etekcity EK4150 digital food scale

Etekcity EK4150 digital multifunction food kitchen scale is made of stainless steel. It feels well made and sturdy. It’s also CE, FCC and RoHS certified.

Etekcity digital multifunction scale can measure in both metric (grams/kilograms) and imperial (ounces/pounds) units. It can weigh up to 11lb/5kg in 0.1oz/1g increments. It’s super precise with no deviation found during tests with calibration weights.

It’s a very reliable and accurate scale, certainly one of the best in this price class. Theoretically there is still a small chance there might occasionally be a margin of error of up to 1 gram but during tests it measured weight precisely without any inaccuracies.

Etekcity EK4150 is powered by two AAA batteries which are included. Scale seems to be energy efficient and therefore has good battery life. With regular use you can expect batteries to last 6 months at the very least.

Etekcity EK4150 digital food scale has easy to read backlit LCD display that displays weight measurement and room temperature. It also has timer feature which sets off alarm once the timer has run out of time which can be useful for cooking. Just like pretty much any kitchen scale this one also has “tare” feature which resets the readout to 0 (useful if you have to add multiple ingredients in the bowl).

It comes with 0.57 gallon/2.15 liter bowl which can be used for mixing ingredients. Bowl is too made from stainless steel, it’s almost 4 inches deep and slightly over 8 inches wide.

Etekcity EK4150 kitchen scale is a bit smaller in person that it might appear in picture. The bottom is 7.5 inches wide whereas top part where the measurement is made is 4 inches wide.

Overall for the price Etekcity EK4150 is amazing digital food scale. It’s very precise, reliable and well made!

#2 Etekcity EK6212 digital kitchen scale

As you probably suspect Etekcity EK6212 is inferior kitchen scale to the EK4150. If you were wondering which one is better you have your answer, however if you want to find more about EK6212 you can keep on reading.

Etekcity EK6212 is made of stainless steel and plastic. Just like EK4150, EK6212 too can measure in metric (from 1 to 5,000 grams) and imperial (from 0.1 oz to 11 pounds) units. However it’s not as accurate, the weight can be off by few grams and sometimes when you measure same item multiple times it gives you slightly different readings. It’s still pretty precise scale, but it isn’t among most accurate ones at this pricing.

Etekcity EK6212 food scale does have 1 unique feature that the EK4150 doesn’t – it can measure volume of water and milk in ml. Just choose “M” mode, put a container on the scale (glass, jug or whatever), press the “tare” button and add the liquid to measure the volume.

It has reasonably large and easy to read backlit LCD display, the backlight turns off after 30 seconds of inactivity and scale automatically turns off after 2 minutes of no use. If you put a bigger dish on the scale it might cover the display making in unreadable.

Etekcity EK6212 digital multifunction food kitchen scale runs on two AAA batteries. When there is little charge left in batteries there will be indication in the LCD display, when you notice it you should change the batteries soon as it might start giving you inaccurate readings since batteries with low charge might not give enough current causing the scale to work improperly.

Overall Etekcity EK6212 is a decent kitchen scale but it’s not among the best or most accurate ones in its price class.
