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.
I will update with more problems as they develop.
Cons: not dependable for small measures <100grams, auto off
This is a very well thought out design with a frustrating flaw for baking. Straight out of the box it has helped me ruin at least 3 batches of bread with inaccurate measures of salt (20 grams or less).
Measurement of low weights seems to be very finicky and dependent on where the container is placed on the scale as well as other mystery factors that I have not yet figured out.
I have not had this problem with measuring quantities >100 grams. I am sick of this scale causing problems and will be buying a gram scale (with a maximum weight under 453 grams = 1 lb) and set of weight standards. I will use the dedicated gram scale for ingredients <100 grams and use this OXO for other ingredients.
Would definitely recommend for measuring larger masses.
I also have found this scale very useful when mailing relatively small packages. It is great to use when printing out online shipping labels. I always add a bit to my estimate just to be safe, but it is great to be able to ship from home without the expense of buying a home shipping scale. And I have NEVER had a package returned for insufficient postage.
Overall, this was definitely a great investment, and with over five years of use under its belt, I would definitely say this scale had lived up to and beyond any expectations I could ever have had for it. I'm glad to report that it is still going strong too!
What I like most about this scale is that it was designed to stand on it's side if needed. This makes it great for fitting in a tight kitchen cabinet or on the book shelf beside your cookbooks.
The only reason why I rated it as a 4 instead of a 5 is because the scale could be a little more accurate/precise. For very accurate/precise measurements, it can tend to be a little off. So if you want to minimize the dirtying of measuring equipment by weighing each ingredient as you add it to the bowl, then this scale will tend to be off some which may slightly affect the taste of your dish.
