The user-friendly OXO Good Grips 5-pound Food Scale with Pull-out Display is perfect for weighing all ingredients. Weigh items directly on the platform, on a plate or in a bowl, and pull the display away from the base to prevent shadowing from large plates and bowls. Accurately measure ingredients when cooking and baking or stick to a diet by weighing portions. A weight indicator shows the capacity left on the Scale before maximum capacity is reached. Press the zero button to offset the weight of a container or to set the weight back to zero to add additional ingredients. The display features large, easy-to-read numbers which measure in 1/8-ounce and 1-gram increments and the platform can be removed for cleaning. The Scale has a 5-pound capacity and two AAA batteries are included.

UPDATE: I wanted to add a comment about battery life in response to another customer's negative review. I've used my scale daily now for two months and have never replaced the batteries. I find with my older, larger version of this scale that I only need to replace the battery every 9-12 months with daily use. I don't find that bad at all!
It is a total joy to have a truly reliable scale so I can use weight instead of volume measurements for my baking as it is more accurate, particularly for flour, as well as being faster and neater. You can Google "convert (ingredient of choice) to ounces" to get volume-to-weight conversion charts for ingredients for all your recipes. The gram option makes following European recipes where quantities are often indicated in weight instead of volume a breeze.
The scale works perfectly and is intuitive enough to use without reading the directions. It is accurate compared to the postal scale at my post office. Some reviewers of the larger scale mentioned inconsistent readings when weighing the same item at different times. The scale I have shows no signs of this. I checked with both very light and heavy items placing them in the center and towards the edges of the platform. All readouts were consistent with all items even when they were not centered on the scale. The scale does have a smidge of a delay when adding ingredients but I found this easy to handle by using a light hand when I was getting close to adding the weight I needed.
The readout only pulls out three inches although it retracts to two inches unless you hold on to the readout. However, the two inches is more than enough to prevent shadowing for most anything one would want to weigh under five pounds including using a large dinner plate. The LCD readout is large enough that even the fractions are easy to read although this scale does not have the backlighting option that the larger model has. In using the scale I haven't felt the need for any backlighting but someone who has a particularly dark kitchen might feel differently.
Unlike the larger model the platform on this scale is not removable for cleaning. The platform is easy to clean but that might be a feature that some would find important. Also, this model does not display pounds in decimals which was a criticism that was brought up in reviews of the larger model.
My old scale that I never trusted an inch is now in the Goodwill pile. This is a product I would readily recommend highly to family and friends.
