This scale does exactly what's advertised.

More than anything - this scale will jazz up your kitchen. Given that it's a classic scale, it isn't tiny. It is easily as much of a decorative element as it is a useful kitchen tool. When this scale is sitting on your countertop, everything about it screams "I'm ready for business!" It's definitely a unique conversation piece - the thing looks like it's something you inherited!

But of course, it isn't just a fun kitchen accessory for the purposes of decor. It's a scale, and it will weigh whatever you need to, provided you say under 11 pounds. I stacked 11 individual one-pound weights that I have on it to test its accuracy - and the dial moved exactly 1 pound further for each weight added. You can definitely trust this scale.

The bowl on the top simply rests on a small platform below it. After you place the large bowl on the scale and adjust its reading to tare for the bowl on top, you won't need to worry about it again. The bowl is sturdy, and I put it in the dish washer without a problem.

So - if you're looking for a scale that accurately weighs objects within a tenth of a pound - this is a great scale for you. Don't expect it to weigh by the tenths of grams, or something like that - that's not what this scale is made for.

Overall: this is a fantastic deal for the price.

Further: EatSmart has outstanding customer service. I bought another one of their scales in the past, that happened to be broken when I received it. Their management was extremely polite in addressing my issue. Since they're a smaller business, they seem to be willing to address any issues you might have with their products in a personal, friendly manner. They don't hassle you like larger business giants seem to, and truly show that they care about their customers. I can't recommend them enough.

I waited patiently for this scale to be released and boy am I glad I did. I wanted something that went with my kitchen, and the look of this scale really goes with some of the other retro appliances that I own.

I have only used it for about a week so far but its been very simple to use. The bowl that comes with it pops on and off the scale, which was easy for the bread recipe I was following. I actually was able to add my basic ingredients into the bowl and mix the dough right in there. Made clean up a breeze only dirtying that one bowl.

I thought the 11 lb capacity may be an issue but I was nowhere close, even with my liquid ingredients in there. Overall I am very impressed for the price. I even got a nice note from the President of the company on how I was the first to buy this scale. What a nice touch!

I was excited to see a retro style scale. I love how the retro kitchen items were made of all metal and most were painted red or green. I also found that having a removable bowl was super convenient for cleaning.

I found that the scale are very accurate and with the markings being oversized, they were easy to read. There is a black knob that is used to zero out the scale before you place the food on the bowl provided or your own plate. It is a very intuitive item to use.

I finally found something that was functional but aesthetically pleasing enough to leave on the counter (with yet another function). I try to leave our fruit out for easy access for the occasional hungry snacker. I replaced a bowl I had sitting on the counter with the EatSmart scale and it now holds fruit when it's not being used for it's intended purpose.

This is a great product. Well made and I expect many years of use. The thing I like best is no electronics and the weight is so easy to see! If you want a reliable product this is it.

I like the looks of this scale a lot. It's attractive, not too large, not too small, and easy to read. It looks to be all metal construction with the exception of the plastic display window. I also like the unattached metal bowl to make measuring things easy even if you like to leave the scale under the cabinet.

The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is that the window covering the measuring display is plastic. Plastic with a dot smack in the center from where I assume it was attached to the mold. I wish it were glass.

All in all, I'm happy with the purchase, and still think it is one of the best looking kitchen scales on Amazon.

I like this scale's looks, the simplicity, the price and the accuracy. I really like the more than 2 lbs but less than 20 lbs maximum weight measured, and the fact that it shows both ounces and grams.
But I nearly broke my arm, and the cheap plastic black tare knob, trying to make the knob work to initially calibrate the scale. I don't know why my unit was so much harder to adjust than other reviewers' but that takes off a star for me. Otherwise, this one's a winner.

Glad I took a shot on this is scale. The quality seems to be very good. It has a large base and is very very steady on my counter. The bowl is large enough for most baking tasks that I have done so far, and I have no problem with the readings as the display is quite large. I even took the bowl off and weighed a package I was sending to my son.

If I had one minor complaint it would be that there was some minor assembly, but it took only minutes. Great value vs. other scales I have seen in the stores.
