The auto-shutoff was way too fast for me at 2 minutes. It was constantly going off when a recipe required me to step away. After some research I found the instructions on how to change the auto time:
1. Turn the scale off.
2. Press "POWER" and "HOLD" buttons down at the SAME TIME and DON'T LET UP until the display reads "Nb 0", "Nb 1", or "Nb 2". This is the weight response speed ("Nb 0" is slowest, "Nb 1" is the default).
3. Press "MODE" to toggle between them.
4. Press "TARE" to select.
5. The display will now read "OFF 0", "OFF 1", or "OFF 2".
6. Press "MODE" to toggle between them. OFF O = auto shutoff disabled, "OFF 1" = 2 minutes, "OFF 2" = 5 minutes.
7. Press "TARE" to select your choice.
The display will return to normal and your done!
The scale has every feature needed in food prep (tare/lb/oz/lb.oz/kg/g/baker's math) and nothing more (why do some scales tell you what time it is now?). The 17+ lb. (8 Kg) capacity allows for a large/heavy mixing bowl to first be tared when weighing and combining a large volume a multiple ingredients. The large weighing surface and backlit LED keeps the weight visible and function buttons accessible when weighing items larger than a cereal bowl (something that most scales in this price range cannot claim). Aside the from the overall design, weight capacity and granularity, the baker's math (percentage function) may be this scale's most useful feature!
The only negative I've experienced is the scale's quick auto shut-off time when running on battery powered. This can easily be resolved by using an AC adapter.
Bottom line: I would by this food scale over any other in the <$100 price range (and I wouldn't by a $100+ scale for my home kitchen).
The tare function on this is a must for me: I love it! The plastic cover over the keypad is a nicer idea than I thought it would be before I used the scale. The one star deduction I gave the scale is due to the slight scuffing of the plastic cover that seems to have occurred in transit. That should not have happened, though it doesn't affect function in the least. The scuffing looks like flour remnants I didn't wipe off. This is something the manufacturer could have avoided by putting a small piece of paper between the keypad and the cover prior to shipment. It was so easily avoidable that I felt a one star deduction was in order.
This is a scale that is very easy to use, with all the functions you should expect in a true baker's scale - baker's percentages, gram increments in measurement, conversion between metric and ounce/pounds, and the ability to regulate the automatic shut-down of power. I love that it is battery operated, and don't mind that the scale did not come with the available power cord. I'm extremely pleased with the scale, which has earned a coveted place on my counter.
Edit January 1, 2014. I used the scale for all my Christmas baking, and it is still going strong after four years of heavy use. I thought people might like to know that my experience with this scale continues to be excellent. I am definitely getting my money's worth out of it!
