Using the scale is very easy; just turn it on. If you set a container on the scale for holding your ingredients it will set to zero and not include the weight of the container. I find that to be very convenient. The scale is small enough to stand out of the way of daily kitchen chores.
We're talking exact precision here people. If what you're looking for is a professional scale in a small package then this is what you should buy and it offers the best warranty vs any other product. Best of all is that its easy to clean and store.
This scale exceeds my expectations. I especially like the fact it will allow for tare weight. The size is perfect - big enough for what I need and small enough to not take up room. My only regret is waiting so long to order it - I find myself using it several times a day. Quick and easy...my kind of product!
The first scale I received was damaged. Overstock had me send it back and in the meantime, they sent me another. When I turned the new one on, I realized that the unit of measure is extremely small and because it's at the very top of the screen it is very difficult to read. I do not require glasses for reading either. So, unless you are in very bright light, be ready to use a flashlight in order to be able to read it. The actual measurement is easy to read. But, measurements less than an ounce or gram are displayed in fractions vice tenths. I prefer tenths. All my previous scales have displayed tenths, so this was a surprise and also was not included in the description. I will probably end up buying another scale sometime in the future because I'll be so frustrated with this one. But, I need a scale on a daily basis; so, I'll keep this one for now.
This food scale was just what I was looking for and I am pleased so far with it's accuracy. For backup in the event my battery goes out I purchased another food scale that doesn't require a battery. I hope it will last awhile. Overstock.com is the best!
