I've had this scale for about 2 years now. It is great. Sits on my island and is there for weighing my food servings.

so far so good. Works as intended and is easy to use. I have weighed around up to 100 oz (roughly 6-7 lbs) without any problems!

Scale was purchased for weighing mail and ingredients. It works well for both purposes, and it seems relatively accurate and precise. That said, mine does not register light objects (less than .5 oz or a few grams) very well when starting from 0, meaning, when the scale has just been turned on or you have just pressed tare. I first noticed this when weighing ingredients: I hit tare and added about 10g of the next ingredient, 1 or 2 g at a time, and the scale still read 0. To solve the problem I stopped using tare, and then each gram added was registered by the scale. I tried a little experiment with large paper clips to see if the same thing happened. 2 large plastic-coated paperclips seem to weigh about 0.1 oz according to this scale. I turned on the scale, let it zero itself, and then added two paperclips at a time. After a while I had a small pile of paperclips and the scale still read 0.0 oz. I removed the paperclips and then the scale read -0.9 oz. Next, I started by adding an eraser which registered as 0.9 oz. I added 2 paper clips and the scale read 1.0 oz; I added 2 more and it read 1.1 oz; 2 more and 1.2 oz etc. So, if you are weighing objects half an ounce or heavier then this scale will work great for you any time. However, if you need to precisely measure light objects then you may need to start out by adding a 0.5 to 1 oz object to keep the scale from automatically zeroing out small amounts of weight added little by little. Please note I may just have received a quirky scale, so if any one else has this WeighMax IKS-5000. I would be interested to see if you have similar results when weighing light objects.

yes it weighs almost a ton and if you drop it on your finger you will be swearing out loud. But it is sturdy and extremely easy to wipe down as needed. Treat it well by oiling it once a month and this will probably be the last cutting board you ever buy assuming you don't drop it on your finger and burn it out of anger...

This is a large well crafted cutting board. It weighs 37 so be prepared for how heavy it is!

We raise alpacas and sell products made from their fleece. This scale is great for postal weighing so I can estimate shipping costs for customers across the USA. Also good for weighing our alpaca yarn which is sold by the ounce. Love that it is powered by either batteries (included) or household current. Also love that it is Made in the USA!!

I Love this Scale! When I purchased this, I didn't read all of the functionality, but after I got it home, I discovered that you can add to your original weight of the food you are weighing. This is perfect, if you are like me. I weigh my meals. So, I weigh my protein - then add my carb - then my veggies. I don't have to figure it out in my head - I just reset after each food and start fresh. I just love the feature. Also, you zero out your bowl so you don't have to calculate the weight of your container or plate I just love this product!

Seems to work fine. It does have a short delay when weighing but seems fairly accurate. Good value for the price.

It is perfect for my food, and weighing my birds, and my little dogs since it goes up to 11 lbs!
You may not think children and cooking are two things that go together, but getting children involved with cooking offers great benefits. They'll enjoy cooking together with you. And you can encourage kids to eat a variety of foods; when children take part in making meals, they are much more likely to eat them. Having cooking tools that they can use will make this time together in the kitchen safe and fun. Read More
