Finally it dawned on me and sure enough, there were two pieces of cardboard in between the scale and the base for shipping purposes. I removed those and the scale works perfectly. Another thing is that the manufacturers website says there must be a 1g minimum in order to weigh. This isn't true. It weighs from .1g up with no problems.
It really is a beautiful scale. Very accurate, I reweighed several objects and they were dead nuts. The weighing platform is 4"x4". It's not the least bit chintzy and in fact has a very pleasant display. Moreover it comes with a hard plastic case that double as weighing trays!
The design also includes a small plastic cover to protect the scale top, then a plastic cover that lies on top of the entire scale to keep it from depressing if you place something on top of it. This means I leave it in the corner of my counter, plastic cover on top, and store the dripper right on top of it and not worry I will damage the springs with constant weight or bump it or anything to damage it. When it's coffee time, I just slide it out, fire up the kettle and away I go!
As I start to cook more, I am finding that it is good for weighing out ingredients for making bread, say, where doing it by volume is just a bit harder to get right. Weight is much easier. Every modern kitchen needs one of these.
The scale does have an auto-shutoff, which (near as I can tell) can't be shut off. Still, I timed it the other day and it lasted for five minutes before I turned off the timer. If you keep applying pressure/adding more weight, it will also keep the scale awake. It worked perfect when I was weighing out my pour-over this morning.
it is small--but I like that about it. It does come with a plastic tray that you can put on top of it to help when weighing items like spices.
For the price, it's a great scale to get started and (I've found) to be pretty accurate. It also takes up such a small footprint in my kitchen and doesn't chew up the batteries, either.
A new trend in coffee and espresso preparation is weighing everything - your whole beans, your ground coffee, your water, even the shot of espresso you're brewing. Weighing gives a much more accurate measurement than visual ml/oz viewing in a measuring cup or shot glass. This is especially true with espresso, given that crema can be large in volume, thus screwing up a visual measurement of the amount of liquid brewed.
This scale fits the bill, by virtue of the 2kg max weight while still resolving to 0.1g. It's not without its problems, but the price earns it 4 stars from me.
The large weight allowance allows you to put portafilters on it (then tare them out, and weigh the amount of ground coffee in the portafilter). It even allows you to brew a big 8 or 10 cup press pot right on the scale, accurately measuring the water used in grams instead of in mls (1g water = 1ml water).
The display is easy to read; blue with black letters that are readable from most normally used angles.
The tray is wide enough to hold most items I use on it, from press pots to cupping cups; it's a bit small for portafilters, but you can balance them on the scale.
TAREing the scale is very quick; startup is a bit slower, but not bad.
The price is fantastic, and earns an extra star from me just on that basis. If it were $35 or more, it would only get three stars.
Very accurate. I have some calibrated weights and it was bang on, right out of the box.
What's preventing this from being five stars?
- time out is too short. It's 60 seconds, but honestly, that needs to be longer, or at least user-adjustable.
- I had to put non-slip rubber bumpers on the bottom of it - otherwise it slid around too much
- there is a bit of a delay when you add or subtract items from the scale - it's not instant (takes about half a second sometimes to update)
Overall a great scale at the price. Could be better, but there's nothing else currently available that matches it features vs. price.
