A kitchen isn't a chemistry lab, but you still need to weigh and measure things; therefore, kitchen scales see plenty of use. They let you measure quantities of food by weight, in pounds or metric.

Plenty of recipes call for quantities by weight instead of volume, and kitchen scales take out the guesswork. It's much more convenient to pop a quantity of diced meat or vegetables on the scales than to make a guess based on the volume.
