... 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)
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
