I've recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and am trying to keep my meals as close to the suggested serving size as possible. It's hard to measure out 3/4 cup of cereal like Wheaties and be anywhere close. Luckily enough most labels have the gram equivalent. This is a really nice kitchen scale. It's not super accurate, but get's me in the ballpark. I set it up, zeroed it and placed a 5 gram weight on it. It measured 4 grams on this scale, so it's off by at least 1 gram. This may or may not be an issue for most, but I can live with it as I don't have to be super precise with my measurements. Things like chickpea pasta list a 1/8 of a box as a serving. What does that even mean?? At least now I can measure by weight rather than taking a wild guess and get as close to a serving as I can without overdoing it. Like I said nice scale, easy to read display and several features such as tare, .oz and .lbs. With the top surface being stainless steel, it will be easy to clean and won't stain like plastic. A+
The product is awesome, easy to us and relatively slim and light. Scale is also easy to clean and customer service is top notch. They stand by their product as they help me immediately solve the little problem I initially had with the scale. Scale is also accurate and consistent. I would recommend placing the item to weigh at the center of the scale. However, placing what you want to weigh even at the sides gives you the same result. Thus, scale is really sensitive.
After shopping around for a kitchen scale, I purchased this Etekcity model. It has proven itself durable and reliable for my needs, which are fairly light. I use it once or twice a week for weighing out baking ingrediaents. It is sleek, lightweight, and cleans up easily. Easy to use. The insert mentioned it was not for commercial use, which ought to be obvious. But for occasional use in the kitchen, it has been perfect. A very good value.
