I just received this scale from Amazon today. The item was fine and looked great. We put it in our bathroom and both my husband and I weighed ourselves. Then just a few moments ago, my husband went to weigh our son and afterwards scooted the scale back against the wall. The corner of the scale lightly bumped the bottom of the toilet then shattered into a million pieces! We were so shocked! I understand that tempered glass shatters this way (we own cups made of tempered glass that have shattered this way when dropped on a hard floor), but I don't think this particular light bump warranted such an explosion of glass. We owned the scale for barely a couple hours and each only stepped on it once. The large number of positive reviews for this item made me believe it would be a good idea to buy a scale made out of glass, but obviously it was not. Thankfully, Amazon customer service was very understanding and prompt at issuing a refund, but I would not recommend this scale to anyone.
