At the Jaycar electronics shop today I came across a digital clock that also doubles as a kitchen scale. I thought that was a really neat idea. It has a smooth and round face, and about the size of a dinner plate. In the middle is a digital display showing time, date, and temperature. At the bottom is another display, which can be used as a kitchen scale. How's that for space saving in the kitchen? You can display the clock, and take it down to use whenever you want to weigh something.
(Note: as a kitchen scale, it has a "tare" function, which basically lets you zero out the weight of a container when the container is used to hold something that you want to weigh)
