Soehnle is a division of the German company Leifheit AG, which specialises in comfort products and scales, including personal and kitchen scales. As of 2011, Soehnle produces four types of kitchen scales: digital, analogue, nutritional value analysis and wall-mounted scales. You can purchase these products directly from the company's website or from kitchen and housewares stores. Depending on the models, you receive either a three- or five-year guarantee.


The digital control scales have a digital readout display. These scales help you weigh food or weigh and figure out the nutritional value of your food. Certain models, like the disc versions, have a wireless display. These scales come with either a bowl or as a flat surface on which you place your food. Depending on the model, these scales are made of stainless steel, die-cast zinc or plastic; the Retro and Flip models are available in a variety of colours including cream, purple and orange. The Page model is decorated with design options and has a smooth glass surface.


The analogue scales have a dial instead of a digital display, and they are made of metal, stainless steel or plastic. All models except the sliding-weight scale have a bowl (some are removable) to hold your food. The sliding-weight scale has an oblong pan, and the scale on this model moves from left to right as opposed to the standard round-gauge models. This model is made of stainless steel with black, white and chrome. Other models in the category include the Silvia, which has a nostalgic design and a removable stainless steel bowl, and the Varlo, which includes a transparent measuring cup.

The Food Control Easy holds up to 4.08kg of food,and it is made of a combination of plastic and safety glass. It has a digital display and a flat surface for weighing food. It has a database of food items to provide you with calorie and fat information on the food you are weighing. The Food Control Plus also provides you with nutritional value information, but it has a portable wireless food display. It is made of a combination of plastic and safety glass and holds up to 4.99kg of food.


Soehnle's wall-mounted scales save counter space. As of 2011, the company offers two models: the Bernardino and the Pronto. The Bernardino has a bowl attached to the bottom of the scale, similar to the hanging scales in your grocery store. This is an analogue scale made of white plastic; it holds up to 2.72kg of food. The Pronto is a digital scale, made of plastic and safety glass. It has a collapsible fold-out arm with a glass plate, which holds up to 2.72kg. of food.
