This scale is great for weighing meat, produce, herbs, spices, and more. The easy-read digital display features large numbers and measures in 1/8-ounce and 1-gram increments. An optional backlight illuminates the display in low-light situations, and a convenient weight indicator shows what remains of the scale’s 5-lb capacity. The digital display easily pulls away from the base to prevent shadowing from large plates or bowls. Press the Zero button to offset the weight of a container or to reset the weight to zero before adding additional ingredients. The platform removes for quick hand washing and the Scale’s thin profile ensures easy setup, cleanup and storage. Two AAA batteries included.
