Rated 2 out of 5Â by Bargainshopgirl Worked great for a while
I purchased this scale a few years ago and only used it occasionally. I liked the slim size, which meant I could store it easily and pull it out when needed. I started to measure some pasta a few days ago, and the readings were really weird. Whatever I tried to weigh was way off, and the ounces always came up as 3/2. I tried replacing the batteries, but this didn't help; so I turned it over to my engineer husband. He couldn't get it to work either, so it ended up in the garbage. I am now looking for another one in a different brand. This one is too pricey for such a short life.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by ChefGranny Not worth the money
I agree with some of the other posts about this scale. When I first got it, I loved it and it worked well. I was careful when storing it but noticed that the LED portion was inaccurate or not clear and changing batteries did not make a difference. I thought maybe I might not have stored it correctly. So I replaced it with another one, same kind. I kept it stored in the box and on top of anything else so that I knew that it wasn't being stored improperly. Same thing happened with the second one. This is too much money to spend on a product that has such a short life span. I will not buy this one again which is said because when it worked it was a good product.

Bought this scale 8 months ago and thought at the time that it was too expensive. I'm glad I chose it. I have lost 30 pounds using it and have no more weight to lose. It measures in ounces or grams. You can set your plate on it, hit the button to zero it out and then add each food item (zeroing out between each item) to calculate your total meal calories. The digital display pulls out, which seems like it would not be used, but when you place larger dishes on the scale without that feature you would not be able to see the display. I could not live without it. Works great. When the weighing starts to act flaky (flashing and can't make up find about the weight), just change the batteries and all will be good again.
