Top Customer Reviews
I have two minor complaints about this scale that prevent me from giving it a higher rating.
First, at very low weights, if weight is added in small increments, it doesn't register at all, even to relatively large total weights, which can be troublesome. It's fine if something is added all at once, or if something is added gradually at greater weights. But if you have something very light, and are trying to add to it slowly, it can be a problem. This is a minor acceptable annoyance relatively speaking, though.
The second problem is more troublesome, but still not critical. If something relatively heavy is added, you can't tare it immediately from the off position as is the case with lighter items. You have to tare it with nothing on the scale, add the heavy item, and then retare it.
Overall, though, this is a great scale. I'm very satisfied with my purchase so far and doubt that I would find a scale I would be happier with.
After reading many reviews and determining that high precision scales that measure to the 0.01 ounce were a bit outside of my price range I decided on this scale by Soehnle. The precision is 0.05 ounce, which allows me to measure the ingredients for my breads and pizza dough with much more confidence than using volume measure would have done. The precision for grams is 1 gram.
This scale is attractive and easy to use. The tare function allows you to add consecutive ingredients to the same bowl if you so desire. I'm a bit more of a planner, so I like to measure all of the ingredients out ahead of time before I start the recipe, and this scale works fine for that method as well.
It does retain its settings between uses, so if I have it reading ounces when I turn it off, it is set to go in ounces when I turn it back on. Easy to use, easy to clean, perfect for my needs at this point, I am very pleased with this purchase!
I received these products (2) a bit over a week ago so I can say they have lasted at least that long. I can also say that first impressions of the product are positive. It looks very attractive and like an ipad is something I just want to use. The blue LED display is a little different, easy to read in any light and a refreshing alternative to the black on grey displays on many small kitchen scales.
I wont describe in detail the appearance of the product or rhyme off the functions, it's all there in the photographs and marketing material and is pretty accurate. I don't like it when half (or more) of a review is spent revealing features which are already known.
Checking relative accuracy across the 4 corners of each scale I found slight discrepancies. Less than 0.5% between the corners on one scale and about 0.5% on the other. This is not a big deal to me and about as good as I personally would expect on a consumer grade product of this price. Of course I would like all 4 corner sensors to read identically and some lucky owners may get just that depending on the sample they receive.
If I can be critical it is that the surface of the scale scratched pretty easily when I first used it. I can see that this will continue to happen if I let it and that will lead to a fairly shabby looking item before too long. I have since stuck on a clear surface protector. This will also help stop fingerprints building up on the surface. I want my nice looking scales to keep looking nice.
Only when either of these scales stop functioning properly or start to come apart will I provide an update as I'm not one for posting each time I open my sock drawer, I'll leave that to the Facebook crowd. The only other unknown is battery consumption. I use good quality conditioned cells and will report if the power drain seems excessive for a small appliance. Hope this helps with your decision.
