The Microtronic Kitchen Scale weighs in both pounds and kilos and measures in precise 1/8 ounce increments. This easy to read 5-pound compact scale automatically adjusts for use with most bowls or containers or can weigh directly onto the platform. It is highly resistant to staining or flavor carry over and has an add weigh feature for convenience of adding individual ingredients using the same bowl while its on the scale. The auto shut off and auto zero feature, an easy to read 0.4" LCD display, 10 year warranty make this scale ideal for dietary or general use.
English manufacturer Salter understands that the best cooking requires impeccable standards in precision. A slight measurement difference between two and four ounces of minced jalapeno pepper in a recipe can mean disaster. To avoid such mishaps, Salter created this microtronic scale. With its compact size and simple design, users profit by easy storage whether on a countertop or a drawer.
The scale features a round 5-3/4-inch diameter plate upon which to place ingredients. Its careful construction maintains standards in both appearance and flavor, combating residual stains and flavors from previous use. With a handy conversion switch, ingredients may be measured in either the metric or imperial system, enabling cooks to prepare recipes from overseas without rummaging for a calculator. The scale handles quantities weighing up to 5 pounds, marked by the LCD display in 1/8-ounce increments. For the metric system mode, the scale measures with 2-gram increases with up to 2 kilograms capacity. For measurement with bowls or other containers, users need only place the empty container on the scale and press the power button to set the measurement to zero for isolated ingredient weights. The scale also features an automatic zero setting and shutdown, extending the long life of the replaceable lithium batteries. For the best care, wipe down the scale with a damp cloth or a gentle cleanser. Batteries are included with this scale. Salter offers a ten-year warranty on this product. The scale measures 6-3/4 by 7-1/2 by 1-1/2 inches. --Jessica Reuling

I have found that it sometimes goes a bit nuts, displaying randomly changing numbers instead of the actual weight of the item being weighed, but if you remove the battery and put it back in to reset the scale it seems to be fine afterward.

It seems you can avoid the bizarre behavior listed above by making sure the scale fully initializes BEFORE you put anything on it. If you put something on during initialization it really gets upset. This scale is still working great after 4 months of daily use.
Overall I'm quite happy with it.
If you're looking for a new kitchen scale, go for this one. The price is right, it's accurate, weighs very little itself so it's easy to transport from room to room, and it just works great. Also, it's easy to read.
Now I can make perfect pizzas with every ingredient weighed perfectly, every time!
