A friendly, everyday-use unit from the renowned manufacturer Escali, the Primo digital scale is compact, straightforward, and playfully colored. With a capacity of 11 pounds or 5 kilograms, the little unit features simple two-button operation and a spill-proof, quick-clean body. The LED face is easy to read, and the readings are rated in increments of 0.1 ounces or 1 gram for high accuracy. Designed for a wide range of kitchen or offices uses, the scale also includes automatic shut-off and a tare feature, so you can weigh ingredients without weighing their container. Available in an extensive palette of fun colors, the Primo was awarded the Kitchen Tested Seal of Approval by the Cooking Club of America in 2005. It runs on two AA batteries, measures 8-by-6-by1-1/4 inches, and carries a 5-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

It is very accurate and easy to use.
S. Hakim
I love the "tare" feature which allows me to subtract the weight of the container I'm using before I put my food in it.
August Bloomingdale
This scale is one of my better buys.

Excellent scale, even for double the money. The tare feature works like most others, but the three real goodies are:

... the FOUR MINUTE before auto-cutoff. Not like the Taylor scale I had that cut off after one minute of nonuse. It was always cutting off on me before I was finished with it.

... and NO DEFAULT SCALE It's the same as when you last turned it off (if you were using grams, the next time you turn it on it's still in grams, OR ounces at OFF then it's ounces at ON). Tap the button to change g/oz on the fly.

... AND it holds A FULL ELEVEN pounds (5kg). I put a bag of flour on it, set tare, and scoop out until it reads xx-ounces (virtually impossible with a 6# scale).

Yeah, I was a chef for many years and more interested in utility over aesthetics in my equipment. I buy flour in 5# or 10# bags now instead of 50# or 100#. I used to have to have several scales -- one for portions and and one for weighing things like yeast and salt, and bigger ones for things like flour and meats. Now 11# is sufficient and this is still accurate enough for yeast and salt.

... Okay, so it's plastic instead of yuppie glass and chrome. It's accurate and well designed -- not heavy, temperamental, or hard to clean. It just works.

... Oh, and it doesn't use strange batteries (regular old AA batteries so you don't go into conniptions when you need replacements)

I was looking for a reasonably priced scale and I don't believe you should have to spend $50 to get a decent scale. Based on some good reviews here I chose this one and am very happy with it. If it was lost or stolen I would buy another one without hesitation. I would have given this scale 5 stars rather than 4 if it weren't for a serious omission of a "feature" in the documentation that can cause large accuracy problems when dealing with the tare feature. It's not a problem with the scale as long as you are aware of it, it's a problem with the documentation. This problem could explain why some other reviews stated this scale is inaccurate.

The problem is that when this scale is zeroed it goes into an auto-zero mode where small changes (1g or so) in weight cause the scale to continuously re-tare and stay at zero. I discovered this when I put a dish of almonds on the scale and hit tare. I removed almonds 1 at a time and the display always returned to zero. I had removed 15 and it still read zero. I put the 15 back in all at once and it read 15g!. Almonds conveniently weigh between .8 and 1.3 grams.

If you zero out a bowl and try to add a few grams of salt by slowly pouring it in or weigh out some small garlic cloves, you could end up with significantly more than you think you have, depending on how you pour or add. Pouring continuously and quickly instead of dribs and drabs works better.

There are several ways to work-around this "feature":

1. Make your first addition or subtraction to the zeroed scale large enough to get it to register, add quickly (not slowly as the directions state). With the almonds, if I first took out 2 or 3 at one time, the display went to non-zero and then went down by an avg.

Love the scale. Tested accuracy, with perfect results, using nickels -- they weigh five grams apiece. Very sensitive so it can weigh small amounts of ingredients. Lent it to a friend to weigh his son's Pinewood Derby car. He dropped the scale down a flight of stairs but the scale lived on. And his son's car won the derby.

One complaint: Anything more than just a small bowl or plate set on the scale will block the display making it difficult if not impossible to read. Would be nice if the display faced outward rather than just upward.

OK, so it's a kitchen scale. I want it to be easy to use, and it is. I'm very happy with it.

However, I'd like to add that this scale has an extra feature that many digital scales lack: The ability to work with negative measurements.

Imagine that you have a canister full of flour, and you wish to measure out six ounces: Just set the container on the scale, zero it, and start scooping. When the scale measures -6.0, you know you've got your six ounces. The ability to measure what I've scooped off the scale, in addition to being able to measure what I've added onto the scale...it's just a nice convenience.

When I took the scale out of the box I couldn't believe how small it is.I can stand it up next to dishes, takes up hardly any space and it's readily accessable. Had an old Weight Watchers scale that took up lots of space. I like the fact that I can put any size bowl on it and zero it out and then just get the weight of my food. It measures in 1/8ths too which is nice but not necessary. I absolutely love this scale,worth every penny.

Specifically purchased this item given the many positive comments. Unfortunately, I can't add to the long list of rave reviews.

I received the product, put in the included batteries and then neither of the two buttons would work. I couldn't get the 'tare' function to work and then I couldn't get the 'off' button to work. It did however eventually turn off on its own. In addition, after a few minutes, the scale started reading a couple of ounces even with nothing on the scale. The scale was on the counter top (flat obviously) and was not near any other electronics.

I assumed my problems were a fluke; I processed a return and Amazon had a replacement scale on my door step in two days (Amazon worked perfectly during the return process). I had similar, but not exactly the same issues with the second scale; I returned it as well.

Oh well, I guess I'll try another product now.
