I weigh my food, and it has been really hard for me to find a food scale. I had one that I liked a few years ago but I broke it by dropping it, and since then I was using a postal scale that I had since I couldn't find a decent replacement.
This scale is a bit smaller than what I thought it would look like, even though I read the reviews here first. Sometimes that happens. So this scale is just under 6" wide, 8-1/2" long, and 1-1/2" high. The one thing I would like that this scale doesn't have is a way to pull out the digital display if you have a plate on top of the scale, you can't see the measurement. One good thing about this thing is it doesn't make beeping sounds upon turning on. I like quiet things.
What I like about this scale is that you can switch the type of measurement, pounds, ounces, grams, kilograms. Things like protein powder seem to be weighed in grams, whereas a portion of chicken breast is easier for me to measure in ounces. So I love that. It does not measure in in between measurements for grams; so you would get 2 grams, then 3 grams, not 2.5 grams. Of course the tare button is a must have when shopping for a food scale, and this has one. This way you can zero out the bowl or whatever and weigh out the food/item without having to subtract anything yourself.
The only thing that is annoying to me about this scale is that it can be difficult to turn off. It will eventually turn off by itself if you just leave it, but you have to press the button to get it to go off if you want to save your batteries, and it can take several pokes to get it to do so. Not a huge deal though.
For the price, I think this is a great food scale and I recommend it.
