Edit: Gram only! It should be noted that this scale will NOT measure in standard US oz. I didn't expect it to, but just mentioning for someone that might care about that.
The only improvement above the average $15 scale is that it has a built in timer and a longer auto-off which makes it useful for coffee. It is extremely lightweight and the plastic feels very cheap. My $25 American Weigh scale feels more heavy duty and even has a backlight! There are no rubber feet on the bottom so the scale slides around easily on the counter. It just doesn't feel right putting my beautiful 8 cup Chemex on top of this. The product info as of 12/2013 on Amazon says that the product is made in Japan, but the packaging says made in China. I prefer not to buy from China because of their labor laws and considered the price a fair premium for having it made in a more reputable country.
I will be keeping it, but only because I didn't buy it direct from Amazon and therefore don't have an easy return option. Since I already have a American Weigh Scales AMW-SC-2KG for weighing my beans, I would have rather purchased a classy looking Escali Arti scale which has an auto-off of 5 minutes, and a nice looking simple timer. I've started seeing more Escali scales than Hario's at "Third Wave" coffee shops lately.
Update after owning it 8 months:
I've had to increase my review to 3 stars. I added rubber feet to the bottom so it doesn't slide around. Despite the scale not being beautiful and feeling cheap, it is very functional. The scale speed is very fast so you rarely overshoot your pours or have to double-check. And it's hard to beat having a timer right on the scale.
I did mess up once and poured coffee on it. It's very susceptible to spills and doesn't have much protection, so it stopped functioning properly. I took it apart, dried it the best I could and let it sit for a day. It's back to normal. Probably not constructed appropriately for kitchen work, as spills are to be expected and this type of product should have better protection. On the other hand I only lost it for a day.
Not 100% sure I would buy again, but when it works it works very well.
In the haze that is my usual morning while brewing the much needed morning joe; I accidentally saturated the scale in scalding hot water. It started malfunctioning and then died. Coffee and morning ruined.
I let it sit all day while at work with the battery cover off and batteries removed. When I came home I changed the batteries and it turned on and was acting as though possessed by demons. I became frantic. But then I found my handy #00 Phillips screwdriver popped the 6 screws off the back and then used the blow dryer to dry it out. After screwing it back together and putting the batteries in, it was good as new.
This product is well built and is easily repairable for the knuckleheads like me out there
For a product that is intended to be used around liquid, it is really STUPIDLY designed.
I poured a little too much through my pour over and the coffee ran over the edges of the weighing pad and it all went inside the device.
There are no lips, no seals, nor diverters to protect the insides from liquid ingress. Just a perfectly flat underside that allows liquid to travel right into the guts of the device. It wouldn't take much effort to at least make the device drip/splash proof, just add drip edges along the underside of the weighing pad and angle the base a bit.
I was able to rescue the device by disassembling it and drying it carefully, but it was a huge hassle. It kept reading "unstable" until it was completely dried out.
