However, this is a tiny scale (a bit smaller than a deck of cards), which means a tiny lid/weighing platform (about 3.3 x 2.3 inches, with rounded ends). Therefore, it can be hard to fit portions of food onto the scale. Usually I can balance oblong food "just so" on a paper napkin, or in a small serving container, so first I zero out the scale (tare) with just the empty napkin or whatever, and then I add the food to get the weight. For example, a burger can be centered and balanced just right on the platform, as long as it is not too wide to hide the display. If the food is larger, or for whatever reason harder to position (e.g. loose pieces of stir-fried chicken), I carry around some small plastic bags into which I put the food for weighing (after zeroing out the weight of the empty bag). Flat but wide food can be cut in half and then piled up to fit, or weighed in pieces and then added up. If you want to weigh larger portions, obviously a larger scale will work better.
When this scale arrived, I calibrated it with a 500g weight, and it was only 3g off, and easy to adjust (who knows if the calibration weight is correct, but the various gram scales I had in the house were all within a few grams of it).
I don't use this scale that often, but the times I do, it is a useful tool for my current health kick. Although the photo doesn't show it, mine came with a "Quick User Guide" printed inside the scale lid/platform, so if you forget how to use the settings, you can refer to that.
The only negative is that the pad is small for weighing larger items. I play disc golf and like to know exactly what weight frisbees I'm throwing, I need to tare out a fairly tall 'stand' to put them on but it works pretty well in spite of it's size. I use a pint glass to weigh out my raw coffee beans, the base is about the same size as the pressure pad so careful placement is important.
Overall, a great buy for 5 bucks!
The 2 problems with the others:
1) This scale has auto-off instead of an on and an off. This is good! I don't want to eat the battery by leaving it on!
2) This scale updates in real time! It doesn't wait to "settle". This is good! I can pour something, up to a target weight!
Now, it _is very small_! Great for putting in a shirt pocket... I wouldn't want to try to weigh anything bulky!
So this was my error. Its very nice and seems to be good quality. Its just very small. I would use it to measure herbs. That's what I'm giving it 4 stars.

I brought this to measure spices, and it is not as accurate as it states for small quantities. For my purposes it is, therefore, virtually worthless.Published 19 months ago by BlueLotus
This is definitely a pocket scale. Unfortunately, it's barely big enough to even weigh something small enough to fit in your pocket!Published 22 months ago by Beachey
