Easy to set up and use. As a minimalist hiker, I shave all extra weight off my equipment. I use the scale to quantify my total weight removed.

Digital Scale

The scale arrived on time and works perfectly. One note: the directions on how to use the tare weight component of the scale were in the wrong order making a simple process sound quite confusing.

Works as described. Stores easily in box. Looks nice except for Northern Tool's sticker placed in odd location.

Great little scale. Performs just as expected. Domed buttons are a little hard to get used to, but otherwise the scale works great!

Nice scale but ...

,
October 19, 2015
By
from SC
It's pretty good. It works. I checked the accuracy with a 20 gram standard weight.
Cons:
1 Battery door doesn't fit well, one side is even with the body and the other protrudes. It doesn't catch solidly. I had to bend the latch out a bit to get it to catch.
2 The body of the scale is warped. It seesaws from top left to bottom right. All the feet are inserted at the same depth so it's not the feet.
Pros:
It comes with a CR2032 battery. I had another scale at 3 x the price that ate 2 AA batteries at a time. The last set leaked causing the contacts to corrode and rendering the unit useless.

Scale evaluation

from North Idaho
The scale arrived in perfect condition. One of my uses for this unit was weighing pool cues which have been reworked. Performed this with no problem. Another use is counting a number of small objects by weight. Of course it is well suited as a postal scale. In the near future I will try it in the kitchen for precise recipes.

I've been intending to buy a kitchen scale for quite some time. A friend recommended this one. Great little scale! Takes up very little room in the cabinet and on the counter. Weighs accurately. Good value.

Appearances can be deceiving but that was not the case with this item. Fully functional as advertised. Equal to if not exceeding similar item at many big box stores. Clean appearance, outstand price and ease of use make this a real winner.

Perfect scale for checking the weight of my parrots.
Needed sometime that was not going to break the bank and this one is perfect for the job. Vet gave me weight the birds should be at and now they are.

Product worked as advertised. Very easy to use and gives accurate weight. Automatic shutoff saves the battery power. Multiple modes with a touch of the button in nice.

Very user friendly, have been looking for a scale for baking for metric and ounces weights. Easy storage and can put small bowls on scale with transferring the ingredients. Good price.

In order to import product, the weight of certain items is a must in order to calculate product costs. We use this scale to perform a preliminary calculation for approximate handling costs. So far this scale is spot on and has not failed us. Very reliable and EASY to use--turn it on and use it!
