This digital scale is "okay.",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale, Elegant Chrome (Kitchen)
For the price, this is not a bad item. It appears to measure accurately, and does a good job with re-setting the scale to zero when a plate or bowl is placed on it. I have had a bit of a recurring problem with scale - Sometimes the numbers on the readout just seem to go crazy, changing rapidly over a wide range and not settling down on a weight. If I leave it alone for several minutes, it will turn itself off and settle down. So, I've just learn to deal with this little quirk. It doesn't happen often, so it is not too much of an annoyance. It is certainly not enough of pain to go through the process of returning the product.

I've had mine 2 years and just today the numbers started going crazy on me. I was looking for another scale when I came across your comments. I guess I will take it out of the cupboard and let it run through its' strange little cycle. Right now I put new batteries in and when the numbers would not stop "jumping" I removed the batteries.

Hi, My scale does this when the microwave is on, only.

Mine just started doing this as well; so annoying. I have to weigh food twice a day; once in the morning and evening. Completely fine in the morning but evening I have to mess way too much with it before if becomes stable enough to use. I thought it was possessed but glad it isn't just mine :-)

Wow I could never figure out why my scale would occasionally freak out but as 'Reader47' stated it is my microwave. If I turn on the scale while the microwave is running the digital readout goes crazy. Not sure if that makes me more worried about the scale or whatever my microwave is putting out that is freaking it out...

This type of malfunction is mentioned in the manual. The scale is fine and the directions stated you may have a problem near certain devices.. It is wise to always read the instructions first befor use and comments. It is a great scale.

Ity's not a problem with the scale, Refer to instruction mnual, Warnings and maintenance #4.

That's nonsensical, since the manual says it will mess up it's not a problem with the scale? If the manual of your car said the wheels may fly off in cold weather is it not a problem with the car? This never happened on the Cuisinart scale I had before this one (I dropped it and broke it so I bought this one.) It is a great scale (overall I like it better than the Cuisinart) but this can be quite an annoyance...I mean who could possibly expect a microwave to be around a kitchen scale.

Yea Miller, That's a very good point! What's emitting from the microwave? Maybe they should sell this thing as A Micro-Emissions tester...

No, it is not nonsensical. Everything in life has limitations. Basically every electronic device is tested by the FCC before it can be manufactured and mass produced. The FCC determines how much electromagnetic waves are okay for a device (such as the microwave or this scale) to emit and how sensitive a device can be. Apparently, this scale is sensitive to the Microwave. Not a huge deal. As for your car tire example, unfortunately, tires do come off cars. It would likely be a tire problem and I doubt the car manufacturer would reimburse you for that. Generally cars don't get mass produced if axle would not hold the tire on. However occasionally, axles do break. Again, manufacturers don't usually reimburse you for that either.
