I bought this scale for a very specific purpose - to measure portafilters (for espresso machines) before and after coffee was added to the filter basket. The 2kg weight limit, 0.1g accuracy and the size of the weighing platform all seemed to suit.

Once I received the scale, I found a few disappointments - one is minor, but one is major enough to render the scale unusable for my needs - and since I live in Canada and ordered it to a US address, it just isn't worth the time or money to return the product - so I'm stuck with a $40 lemon - but I do want to make potential purchasers aware of a fairly glaring design problem with the scale:

The display is NOT READABLE from any angle above the scale - you have to actually bend down and get eye level with the scale to read the blue display. If you stand above the scale, or even in front of the scale looking down (as most would, if the scale is on a countertop), all you see is a blank blue display. The manufacturer is using a LED display that has very poor viewing angles.

It is a design flaw on American Weigh's part because they angled the display on this scale - if the display was flat and facing upwards, you'd probably be able to read it no problems. But because it is angled 45 degrees, reading from above shows the exceptionally poor viewing angles this cheap display has.

To use it, everyone in my workspace has to bend down so their heads are at counter height to read the display.

There is also one other minor problem - the scale seems to "float" the weight a bit before settling, especially with heavier items. It can take as much as 5 seconds for the scale to "settle down" at the final weight when I'm doing the portafilter / coffee weighing.

I do not recommend this scale.

The ideal scale would be both precise and accurate, precision being how close several measurements of various weights are to each other (meaning weighing several items with identical weights would yield the same value for each). On the other hand, accuracy is how close those measurements are to the "true weight", meaning if you weight 100 weights that each weigh 500 g, and after each of the 100 measurements the scale says "500.0 g" each time, the scale is accurate and precise. If, however, after each of the 100 measurements the scale says "500.3 g" each time, it is precise, but precisely inaccurate by having a +0.3 g inaccuracy.

This is what happened with this scale; every 10.0 g would read as 10.1 g, 20.0 g would read as 20.2 g, etc. While the scale is very precise, it required calibration directly out of the box. Fortunately, this scale has a calibration feature. Unfortunately, it requires I have 3 calibration weights: a 2000.0 g, a 1000.0 g and a 500.0 g, which I don't have. But hold on to your hat, there, Curly Sue! Surprise, surprise! They offer a set of calibration weights (and for no paltry sum). I think I'll just compensate for the difference, as I said, it is still precise, I just hope the rest of you received properly calibrated scales. 3 stars.

I purchased this scale to track the weight gain/loss of my pet parrot. Luckily this pretty sturdy scale is accurate when weighing anywhere on the stainless steel surface. *NOTE: you might want to remove the plate and reinstall it to make sure it's level (you obviously don't need to do this if the scale reads even in all four sides and center)*

The reason I rated this a 4/5 is because it is a bit laggy to bring up the weight. So it takes us plenty of tries till I get the weight right. However, if you are weighing like food or laboratory items then I doubt it would be a nuissance to you.

I really like that you can use an A/C adaptor instead of batteries. I just looked in a drawer with some old ones until I found one that worked (I've seen them on Amazon and eBay for dirt cheap too). So I would suggest picking one of these up as well, and unless you plan to keep putting it back into the box after use (which is a really snug fit) you might want to get a case/bag/sleeve for it to avoid damaging it.

The scale is accurate.. The price was good. The display is terrible . Hard to read. I will buy another scale with a better display, and use this one for a backup.

Pros: Nice large, solid platform.

Cons: Takes 3-4 seconds to settle to a new weight, that weight can vary from measurement to measurement by up to 0.5 grams, and I had to tape the battery compartment closed to make it stay shut.

I would not buy this again. I did not return it because it was an emergency purchase to replace my 10 year old scale when it died and it did see heavy use right away while I ordered another scale. Very low quality.

I decided to get a scale to count calories but wanted one that I could use for a multitude of purposes. I like the 0.1 gram resolution and the range is just about right for kitchen use.

I'll probably use this in the future to weigh mechanical parts. I tested it by weighing coins, 5 quarters weigh exactly one ounce. I don't think I'll ever use the pennyweight mode and will rarely if ever use the Troy ounce mode, but it's nice to know they're there.

If you're thinking about getting a mass to calibrate this scale, the instructions call for using a 2000g mass but only if the readings are inaccurate. Like I mentioned above, I tested it by weighing multiples of 5 quarters to make sure they came out to even ounces.
