The SC Series from American Weigh is built tough for big jobs. The SC features one of the largest platforms sizes for a precision pocket scale (4 by 4-inch). You can also use the two included weighing trays as a protective case when the scale is not in use.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The size and shape of the scale are nice. The small display is recessed so it won't get in your way. The two covers give you two options for a weighing tray. You can throw one away, if having two is a bother. The readout settles faster than my previous scales. My previous scales had 0.1g resolution but maxed out at 1kg. This scale has twice the max weight with the same resolution. (This is good in theory, but in practice it means this scale probably isn't quite as accurate. For my purposes, I'm happy with this tradeoff.)
Even though this is essentially the same stuff with the same features as my other scales, I can see the evolution in ergonomics and firmware. I'm glad my other two scales broke. For the price, I won't be sad if this one breaks in a year or two, either. Maybe the next one will be even better.
Another reviewer noted that the scale doesn't change right away while adding weight to it. This is correct, and it is a downside. But OTOH, with my previous scales the numbers would change immediately, but they took a long time to actually be correct. IOW, if I added a nickel to what was already on the plate, the weight would gradually increase to +5.0 grams over ~2 long seconds, going up by a couple tenths at a time. This scale usually takes just a (small!) fraction of a second to show ONLY the final decision. For most of my purposes, this is a major positive. The only downside comes if you are pouring small things onto the scale. You may have to actually stop for that fraction of a second every now and then to get a reading.
Don't let the shutoff feature dissuade you. The shutoff is 5 minutes, which I never come close to reaching, and I use a V60 for pourovers. The actual drawbacks as I see them - compared with the CJ4K - are as follows:
Have to press/release to get greatest accuracy at smallest resolution (e.g. tying to figure out which particular coffee bean puts you at 26.7g)
Awkward as a food/kitchen scale because the platform is too small for large plates (can't see the display)
... that's about all that comes to mind... oh yeah batteries only
OTOH as a travel scale this thing is the ultimate that I've seen. I use MyFitnessPal to track nutrition. I'm in my first full year of serious cycling training, and at the moment I'm data-crazy, logging everything that seems like it *could* be important later. So I measure everything that goes into my mouth. This has become easy to the point of subconscious when I'm at home, selecting from food I bought myself, making familiar recipes, etc., but away from home - HFS it is not so easy. Basically one tool is asking enough questions to get a comprehensive picture of what I'm actually eating, and the other tool is this scale. On the road batteries-only is an asset. It's tiny, portable...
I don't quite grok how the outer platic gutard protects the whole machine except to prevent collisions from smashing the screen and buttons - I do wish the outer case enclosed the whole scale. I also wish it had something like a tablet/notebook neoprene shock case... maybe I will scrounge Amazon to find something suitable...
Overall I wish I had bought this scale first. The CJ4K is better as a permanent kitchen scale, but I prefer this AWS scale for all things coffee-related. Also it is the ultimate food scale for travel AFAIK.
I cannot speak for weight accuracy up to milligrams, but numbers seem consistent with some pre-measured vessels and final results are great too. It was a great addition to kitchen gadgets I have, but it found its usage in other areas as well!
This is an updated review. Customer service is horrible. I had to buy a second unit which stopped working shortly after amazon return window was closed, so I tried using lifetime warranty. No email reply from customer service for more than a week, so i called them and representative "just got my email". There was supposedly an RMA opened, but I didn`t receive any further instructions. No reply after several follow-ups, so jut be aware.
