Salter is a UK-based manufacturer of different food scales for use in preparing meals in your kitchen. In the United States, Salter scales are distributed by the company Taylor. Regardless of where you purchase your scale, the procedure for how to remove the batteries from Salter food scales is more or less the same. You can access these batteries through a panel on the underside of the scale. Many Salter scales are powered by lithium batteries, but your model may differ.
Check the battery indicator on your Salter food scale. Many of them have a "low battery" light or indicator that lets you know when it is time to change the battery.
Remove any food or bowls from the surface of the scale. Turn the Salter food scale over.
Locate the square battery compartment. Press the tab in on the side of the compartment and remove the cover.
Gently remove the battery from the Salter scale with your finger. Some Salter scales may have pull tabs beneath the battery to make removal easier.
