Info: Model Eco180 Digital; Bamboo Platform
Looks, size, high capacity, unobtrusiveness, ease of use, low maintenance, and a lifetime commitment -- this one has it all! It also has fairly large numbers in its LCD display that most will be able to see just by looking down, and also has a 'Hold' feature which retains the readings when you step off in case you can't. And perhaps best of all, it's solar powered: you'll never have to change any batteries!
This isn't some garish, clunky device gathering rust which you're ashamed to have seen - its platform surface is made of Bamboo, which not only has an attractive natural wood grain pattern and doesn't rust, but also has natural antibacterial properties. And although this scale is large enough for anyone to stand on easily (its surface is slightly larger than a vinyl record album cover) and can accommodate up to 400 pounds, it's only an inch and a half thick, so it can easily tuck a lot of cabinets, or you could put a laundry hamper on it.
