Looking at the smooth and sleek Guillotine Kitchen Scale, one might expect that it employs cutting-edge technology incorporated in the most compact way, when in fact, this streamlined apparatus actually gauges the weight of its contents in a much more elementary way. It is simply the assessment of the displacement of the upper surface which indicates the mass within the glass bowl above.
The structure of the measuring device is made from a thin rolled sheet of spring steel, meeting at one side but remaining disconnected. The pliable material is compressed with the placement of items in its transparent dish, causing the top to tilt and the upper flap to sink below the detached lower flap. The elegantly uncomplicated Guillotine Kitchen Scale by Chiara Goose Gustinelli reveals a numerical value through an aperture in the bottom tab.
