The KD 8000 is a beautiful thing.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kitchen Scale - Baker's Math Kitchen Scale - KD8000 Scale by My Weight, Silver (Kitchen)
I have yet to see a scale in the same price range that has the same level of accuracy, granularity and function.
The scale has every feature needed in food prep (tare/lb/oz/lb.oz/kg/g/baker's math) and nothing more (why do some scales tell you what time it is now?). The 17+ lb. (8 Kg) capacity allows for a large/heavy mixing bowl to first be tared when weighing and combining a large volume a multiple ingredients. The large weighing surface and backlit LED keeps the weight visible and function buttons accessible when weighing items larger than a cereal bowl (something that most scales in this price range cannot claim). Aside the from the overall design, weight capacity and granularity, the baker's math (percentage function) may be this scale's most useful feature!
The only negative I've experienced is the scale's quick auto shut-off time when running on battery powered. This can easily be resolved by using an AC adapter.
Bottom line: I would by this food scale over any other in the <$100 price range (and I wouldn't by a $100+ scale for my home kitchen).

This company is amazing, too. I've had a MyWeigh scale for 5 years. It has worked wonderfully, but then started acting funny. I mailed it to them, and they're going to send me a new one for no charge. Amazing service.

Could you mention how accurate this scale is? does it have .1 gram increments?
Also, can you do parametric style recipes, with a TARE then view in ##.###% format?

It has 1 gram precision and it does support bakers percentage measurements.

I've read a lot of bad reviews about the company's customer service. Did you receive a replacement scale? How much did it cost to send/receive the scale for shipping? Does the new one they sent work well? Thanks!

The scale graduations are no guarantee of accuracy.
