Top Customer Reviews
1. Back light can be turned on if you need it. That way you do not run down the battery if the light is not needed. Good feature if there is a glare or you need to see the display from a distance.
2. Obviously, the pull out display. I wasn't sure if this was a needed feature, but once I put a dinner plate on the scale it was well worth it. Display pulls out from scale easy and fits back on scale nice and snug.
3. Zeroing option or tare feature.
4. You can switch between weights with the touch of a button. No turning on and off to reset.
5. Scale will go into a sleep mode after 3 minutes, but retains all measurements. Simply push a button to wake it up and keep working. Auto shut off after 45 minutes.
6. Easy to clean. Scale plate comes off.
7. Can store almost anywhere with the slim build.
The only thing people might find a problem with is cost. It does cost a little more than some other scales, but I would recommend it for the features I listed above that the other scales do not have or do not perform as well. You can always justify not needing a certain feature or paying a little more. But it sure is nice having a scale that works great and does everything you need.
- The enclosed batteries were no good (why bother enclosing them if battery life is not guaranteed? It's more frustrating to have dead batteries than not having batteries at all)
- The scale is not as accurate as expected, and the weight measurement actually changes on the same items from one measure to the next. I have a set of old brass weights that I put on the scale to test the scale's accuracy. The first time I put a 100g weight on it, it measured it accurately as 100g. Then two minutes later I put the same weight back on the scale and it showed only 99g. It did the same with all the weights I have from 20g to 250g, showing the accurate weight the first time, then 1g less the second time. I can't figure out what that's about.
- I erroneously assumed that the scale can be stored on its side, rather than laying flat. Wrong. It must be stored laying flat, which was disappointing. It's true that in the product description there was no indication one way or another about storage restrictions, so my fault for hoping that it can be stored upright, but it would have been nice to know for a fact about storage restrictions.
I'm not dissatisfied with this scale, but I will look around for other options when I need to replace it.
I've found this little machine to be quite intuitive, you can set it up with the included batteries and get right to work without so much as a glance at the instructions.
But it has two significant shortcomings that I've identified so far. First, there's a delay between when you add weight to the scale and when the display shows the increased weight. That means that if you're pouring an ingredient in you need to go incredibly slowly as you get toward the desired weight or you need to add a little bit at a time until you hit your target. Obviously this is no big deal if you're weighing things like vegetables. But it's very annoying for baking, when you're measuring fluids or dry ingredients like flours.
Second, the scale isn't great for measuring very small quantities. For example, I was doing a recipe that called for 1 gram of yeast. I kept adding more and more and more but it stayed at 0 grams until it suddenly registered 2 grams. No huge disaster, since I just doubled the recipe from that point forward, but irksome.
I bought this to replace a cheaper Escali Primo Digital Multifunctional Scale, which died after falling into water. That scale had neither of the two shortcomings I've discovered with the Oxo, though it wasn't perfect either.
