Manual - Calibrate Procedure. I lost the box (or threw it away) and was looking for the proper calibration process. Very usefull and reliable product.

Here you go

III. CALIBRATION
Calibration is NOT required before first use. Only
calibrate if scale is not weighing properly.
**Make sure you use the correct calibration weight for
your scale or the calibration will not be accurate**
BLADE-50: 50g calibration weight
BLADE-400: 400g calibration weight
BLADE-550: 500g calibration weight
BLADE-1000: See sectionIV.Blade1000
Calibration Procedures
1. Turn ON the scale.
2. Press and hold the [MODE] key until "CAL" is displayed. Release the [MODE] key.
3. Press [MODE] again. Now the display will read
"CAL" and the required calibration weight will flash 3
times.
4. Place the required calibration weight for your scale
on the center of platform. Wait 3-4 seconds. The LCD
will display "PASS".
5. Remove the weight and press [ON/OFF] to turn off
the scale. Finished!Repeat if necessary.

No other reviewer mentions what calibration weight this scale requires. An information I wish was available when I ordered it. Although I did my homework I still wasn't able to find this info anywhere. This info should have been sent by the manufacturer to Amazon. The only clue you get from Amazon -even though it is not their fault - is in the "frequently bought together" section where a 50g calibration weight is suggested. So I bought the 50g only to discover (once I opened the box and read the instructions) that the manufacturer of the scale specifically requires a 500g calibration weight for this scale. This information is essential, I believe, and should have been made available to Amazon by the manufacturer. More so, I tried to contact the manufacturer and left a message asking them to tell me which calibration weight they recommend before I buy the scale. They never bothered to call me back. For this I give the manufacturer a rusty 1 star. How you treat customers is almost as important as the quality of your product.
For the way the scale functions I give it 4 stars- it seems to work very well for the weights that it is designed to measure - (down to .1 g or 100mg). To Amazon, who tried to fix my problem, I give 5 shining stars! but I'm still waiting to see the info changed here, so that no more people buy the wrong calibration weight like I did, despite all my efforts to find out which one was required! So get the 500g calibration weight if you think you will need one for this scale.

I'm working on a project evaluating coffee grinders and needed to measure the weight of the coffee after being ground (in grams) in order to compare different grind settings. The scales I have won't weigh very small amounts (5-150 grams) accurately but this scale works perfectly! Not only does it weigh in grams, but also in ounces (oz), troy ounces (ozt), and pennyweight (dwt).

And, it has a "double tare" feature. If you have a container on the scale when you first turn it on, the scale starts at "zero". But, if you decide to change containers, there is a "tare" button you can push to zero out the scale for the new container. I also like the fact that it uses two AAA batteries instead of button batteries which don't last nearly as long.

The hard plastic case doubles as small and large measuring trays and it also comes with a vinyl case which covers everything. The swing-out feature makes reading the display easier and the display is back-lit. The unit is SMALL - less than 4 inches square and less than ¾ inch thick, but it works great for me.

And while writing this, I was thinking back to my times as a technician many years ago "we didn't have such technology then and to get it now for $10 bucks - WOW!".

AWS Blade-1kg Small compact scale perfect for my needs, weighing out precise small amounts of chemicals. For calibration this scale requires a 500 gram weight, I ordered the (American Weigh Scales 500 WGT 500 Gram Calibration Weight) along with this scale and the Blade-1kg was spot on from the factory.

I purchased this scale to measure brewing salts for homebrew applications. It measures on a tenth scale, so it is optimal for measuring fine grains of salt and for measuring ounces of hops to the tenth of a degree. It has a little flip out display, which is pretty cool. The backlit display is bright to read in almost any lighting condition. Someone had mentioned that is wasn't calibrated, but after a quick TARE and placing a 50G weight on it, it was perfectly calibrated. No need to do anything different. Great little scale for small weight applications. I highly recommend!

I love this little guy! I use it primarily for weighing out homebrewing ingredients. Perfect for hops, specialty grains, & other additions. Very accurate. I purchased the 500g calibration weight to go along with it.

*edit*

This great scale is still plugging away perfectly over a year later. I use it during every brew session. I also just recently found some great deals on bulk hops & having this scale allowed me to separate out the 1 lb increments into very accurate smaller quantities, which I then individually vacuum-sealed. The savings here essentially paid for the scale.

Still a 5-star product!
