Pro: Great for weighing food to keep track of intake or for general cooking. Simple to use, and small size makes it easy to store anywhere in the kitchen. Con: Doesn't provide accurate measurement for baking ingredients that are added to the scale gradually. For instance, if trying to weigh out 6 grams of salt by gradually pouring salt on, the scale does not register any change in weight, and stays at 0.0 even after there are as many as 20-30 grams on the scale. Would recommend this scale to those looking for a simple way to measure individual items, but if you're looking for a baking scale you'll need to go elsewhere.
