it measures in ounces but in fractions! I wanted grams, so this product wasn't helpful. It looks great though. I returned it for a european model, which does measure in grams and ouces and is in decimals which is more accurate than fractions.18 of 25 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you?

I bought this as a gift for my wife to use in the kitchen.
I am impressed by it's simplistic, clean design.
My wife likes the accuracy of the scale and is pleased that it is easy to use.
Now I see why they use these in Europe!
I originally purchased this scale to simplify breadmaking -- rather than measure out over four cups of flour, I like the simplicity of pouring it in until the mass is correct. Since then, however, I've come to prefer cooking with weights instead of volumes, and I now know why my friend in Ireland is so fond of measuring with her kitchen scale. I use it for flour, butter (and can now buy butter in bulk, I don't need the measurement paper!), spices, all sorts of things. My husband expected this to be one of those kitchen tools that goes up on a high shelf 95% of the time, but we are using it almost every time we cook.
The scale measures either English or Metric units, and is simple to use. It tares quickly, measures accurately, and is simple to clean. My only critique is that the buttons are a little bit small, but that does not impair the use.
THIS IS A MUST IN EVERY KITCHEN.
We buy in large quantities at Sam's Club. We then divide the meat into 1 and 2 pound freezer bags, pasta into 8oz and 16 oz. etc. This scale converts easily from solid to liquid measurements and just as easily from engish to metric. I was a little sceptical spending the extra money for this model, but now am very happy that I did. It stands up on its back end for stoage in a slim space about the size of a cookbook and is very easy to clean. Hardly a day goes by without using it. My only Con about this scale is that you cannot use a full size plate to weigh anything because the rim covers up the display, but even large mixing bowls work perfectly.13 of 18 users found this helpful.

I like the ease of converting from grams to ounces, and back. Also, being able to weigh up to 11 pounds has been great for cooking in larger quantities.12 of 14 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
