11/2013 Update: Still working perfectly and I've only changed the battery (CR2032) once!
Update (Aug 2011): we just melted this thing by leaving it on our toaster oven, but before we destroyed it, it was working like new. I just got another one for a replacement.
It turns out that the shutoff has hardly been an issue. If you use the tare function after each ingredient (like I do), it doesn't matter if it shuts off because you can just turn it back on and reset it to zero for your next ingredient. A couple of times I have needed to look at a recipe to verify an amount, but I just keep my cookbook nearby and give the edge of the bowl a light tap every 30 seconds or so to prevent it from turning off. It's not ideal, but it's not a difficult thing to do.However, I live alone and usually cook without distractions-- I can imagine that with kids or pets it might be more of an inconvenience!
This scale is easy to use and the "buttons" are straightforward-- one to turn on/off and tare, and one to switch units. I say "buttons" because the controls are not actually buttons, they work just like a very responsive touch screen. I store it flat (I've read about people storing it sideways, but you'd have to be really careful about not letting the feet touch anything because it might cause the scale to be inaccurate). Cleaning it is a breeze (swipe with a damp sponge or paper towel).
All functionality aside, this thing is beautiful!! Shiny, modern, sleek design (and so many colors to choose from!). I took it out of the box and my boyfriend said it looked like an iPod :P.
I would highly recommend it. Happy shopping!
Easy to store: I put a small piece of velcro on the back and stand it against the window frame above my Kitchen Counter, so it's out of the way, leaving only a tiny footprint. This will also help preserve the Scale against being bumped and firing the batteries. Since another customer complained about the batteries being expensive, here is a hint. When wiping the glass face off, after use, hold the Scale in your other hand rather than placing it on the counter. That way the sensor legs aren't triggered.
For messy use, I also cover the black glass with clear plastic wrap, to help keep it clean.
The four different measures are very useful too.
I use mine to prepare dog food and it's great for calculating postage.
It's such a wonderful kitchen toy I even bought one as a gift for a friend.
Makes a great bridal gift.
It comes in handy at the strangest times.
And at this price - it's a GREAT bargain!
It's too late for an Amazon return, so I'll have to deal with the manufacturer. I'm not too keen on paying for return shipping for such a relatively inexpensive item, but we'll see what happens. I'll update this if I get anywhere with them.
Update: I've increased my rating because the manufacturer was easy to deal with and quickly sent a replacement. The only downside was that I had to pay for the return shipping.
Update II: My replacement scale stopped working, this time with a different error. Now any time the batteries are in the display just flashes blank, and it does not respond to any button presses. I am reluctant to ship it back again for warranty service because at that point I would have spent more on return shipping than I originally paid for the item. I am looking for a more reliable scale.

Stopped working soon after I received it. The "powerful 10 year warranty" is a scam. I advise you to continue your search for a better scale. Read morePublished 5 months ago by A_shopper
