Scale is thicker than most available on the market right now. Has a plastic cover that protects metal body. Plastic is removable but the instructions advice to keep it on all the time. I like the design and I am about to purchase another one for my friend. I went through a lot of scales and this one seems to be more solid and durable than others. It is more expensive but I am expecting it to last longer.

Really love the look of this scale. It was hard to find something all polished so I was excited to find this one. Love the clear cover to protect the scale. Alessi products are always really great. My only issue - tapping it to turn it on really doesn't work, I have to step on the edge and let it lift and then hit the floor to use it.
