The Ozeri Pro Digital Kitchen Scale in Black is designed for the culinary perfectionist who desires the superior accuracy in function and elegance in form. The Ozeri Pro Digital Kitchen Scale incorporates oversized buttons that generate an audible click confirmation for the fast-paced cook and an automatic Tare button that quickly calculates the net weight of your ingredients by subtracting the container weight, whether the container is a bowl, tray, plate or anything else. The scale's weighing platform is finished in an elegant black color and has a capacity range from a mere 0.05 ounces to 12 lbs. The scale also displays results in both the US and international metric systems (grams | ounces | pounds | kilograms). The large screen features a new bright LCD with an improved viewing angle for the on-the-go cook. The Ozeri Pro Digital Kitchen Scale in Black also includes a 3 minute automatic turn-off that preserves battery life while giving you time to confirm each measurement. Ships with 2 AAA batteries included.
