Kitchen scales put on volume and value growth

According to GfK, the market grew to 1.4m units and is now worth £13.6m – putting on value growth of 1% compared to the year ending May 2009.

Electronic kitchen scales are the most popular type, with a value share of 66%, which GfK says is down to the increasing availability of technical features. Mechanical scales have a 35% share.

GfK notes that popular cooking programmes on television, modern recipes using pounds or kilograms rather than the traditional cup measurements, and the increasing design element have favoured the market.
