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.
The scale is quite accurate, but I wouldn't rely on it for any serious use such as biochemical engineering or anything in which ultra precision is a must. This measures down to the tenth of a gram, but at times I wish it would give me one extra decimal place to satiate that ADHD nerd that hangs out in my brain (somewhere behind my right ear)
The case doubles as a small tray which is just plain awesome, but I have found that placement of your weighables is crucial for the most accurate reading. You can't concentrate everything on one corner for instance. Since the thing is about the size of a saltine cracker, (well, bigger than that but still snack sized,) it's not difficult to get an even reading. Just make sure you're on a clean even surface that's level.
All in all this is a good scale for my purpose of weighing coffee beans. It would also serve well for those wishing to weigh consumables for portion size, etc. The design is superb, and I only rate it four stars because of the potential for inaccurate readings. It makes you have to be on the ball in order to get the best readings.
