To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Easy to use, pretty accurate scale, love the way it looks (very sleek and easy to clean since its a stainless steel top)
The only issue i had is looking at the actual read out... Since the entire thing is pretty flat on the top, if you place any sort of decent sized bowl or plate, it completely obstructs the digital screen. You end up having to see if you can push back the bowl and get a look at while bending over to look under the curve of the bowl or placing a thinner box and the plate or bowl on top of the box.
Honestly the scale would have been 5 stars but the fact you cant see the display without going through a mission is pretty annoying.
EDIT: After giving it 3 stars Etekcity contacted me to let me know that they had a larger version and sent it free of charge, it was the
Etekcity Digital Kitchen Scale Multifunction Food Scale with 30% Wider Platform 11lb 5kg, 3 GP Batteries Included (Stainless Steel)
, which pretty much negates the issue I mentioned above. And after I looked it up they have a newer version of the one I was sent that has the read out to the side which seems even more practical.
For customer service alone, I had to raise my initial 3 stars to four!
As far as I can tell, it is pretty accurate and can measure very small amounts. However, the display is a strange iridescent, almost fluorescent purple which can make it difficult to read. I would also prefer it if the buttons were not part of the scale because pressing them can change the readings a bit.
PROS: light weight, small in size, could travel with it, clear digital read out, easy to change between unit measurements conversion, easy to use the tare function CONS: if placing a larger plate on it hides the digital display but certainly workable. BOTTOM LINE: I love the ease of this food scale and have already recommended it to friends. It was recommended to me by a friend. Great purchase for the price.
Buen producto para cocina. Mide en onzas, gramos, libras y mililitros. Usa baterías AAA. La pantalla led es básica pero cumple con su función. Su acabado le da una sensación de calidad. Único detalle es su tamaño reducido, donde es mejor usar un vaso que un plato para pesar (cuestión de diseño y practicidad, existará quien no vea problema ahí).
I enjoy baking in my free time and wanted to try using a weighing scale instead of measuring cups to improve accuracy. A lot of the recipes I use tend to use US measurements as well so this saves me time in having to convert them. Scale looks very sleek which I like. It's also very easy to use and toggle between measurements. I like that it goes idle when not in use and can be manually turned off. The only thing I do not like is that the screen tends to be covered when I place big bowls on top of it so I have to place a smaller bowl at the bottom and place the bigger bowl on top of the smaller bowl to see the screen.
we use a lot of different flours in our baking, whose density varies wildly. Using volume measurements we got inconsistent results. Switching to weighted amounts really helped. The scale was easy to use and looks good in the kitchen. Only rated 4 of 5 because I don't have a good way of judging accuracy. If it's accurate, 5/5.
It works well with items 5 grams or higher. If you have a container on it and zero it, then start adding to it grams at a time, it doesn't always register it. I've had to repeat it several times before it would register it. So for adding light ingredients, it can be frustrating. Overall it works well.
Muy práctica y fácil de usar, es una ayuda excelente para la preparación de cualquier receta. Su diseño compacto y moderno es un plus, luce muy bien. El único detalle es su precisión, pues en ocasiones se muestra poco sensible y da saltos abruptos en la cantidad que muestra en pantalla mientras se vierte en la tara el producto que se desea pesar. No obstante, es una báscula muy recomendable, alto valor por su atractivo precio.
