As with most spring scales, this scale is very inaccurate. The same thing can be weighed multiple times and depending on where you zero it out (taring the bowl), the weight will DRASTICALLY change. Smaller measurements just don't even register. The sliding tare is easy to bump when you are using it so you have to start all over. You can zero the scale, weigh something, then when you remove the item being weghed, the scale does not go back to zero, it will be several ounces higher. It is an OK scale for general measuring but it is just an ESTIMATE and is only accurate within 4 or 5 ounces and then only at larger weights. I bought it for the price and at the time had very little experience with kitchen scales. I have had it two years. I like that it does not require batteries, but that is about it. I am looking for a more accurate scale now. Going to have to go digital.

This scale is easy to calibrate to a container other than the bowl that came with it. You just put your container on it, and twist the base until you bring it back to "0". I tested its accuracy initially by weighing several different things of known weight from my pantry. It gave the correct weights for all of them. I have used it to weigh 11.5 pounds of cut pears. I weighed them half at a time, in a large cook pot with a strainer inside it holding the pears. It was very easy to change the calibration back to zero for using the cook pot and strainer, and equally easy to weigh my food. I also like that the bowl that came with it doubles as a cover to keep it clean when it is not in use.

My daughter and I purchased this item so we could accurately weigh out the food portions we were consuming. The product is ok but not really impressive. You have to be right up on it to read it and you need to make sure the scale is in the correct position to get an accurate read. Not a bad item, but not one I would recommend to others.

We just bought this last week and have already replaced it with a different digital scale. We were really hoping this one would work since it doesn't require batteries. Alas it's not precise for measuring anything less than 5 to 6 oz.

I got this to measure my portions more accurately. It works really well, and I think it's accurate. When you use it, you have to adjust the weight of whatever bowl/plate you're using so the scale reads zero, then add the food. You just twist the base of the scale around to do so. The directions on the box didn't really make that clear, but you can adjust to whatever you need to use.

I like that this scale is not digital. There are no batteries to change. I actually use mine to weigh foster kittens and since they wiggle, a digital scale is always erroring out or turning off before I can catch the kitten. To set the scale to zero, simply turn the plate. Has a handy, washable bowl that rests on the scale. It's also great to weigh packages going to the post office. I'm sure the scale is intended to be used to weigh cooking ingredients but it can do so much more.

If you remove the food you're weighing then put it back on the scale it gives you a different weight. The scale is not at all accurate but good for a close enough measurement when exact measurements don't matter to you. I have only had it less than 6 months and the other day it just quit working altogether, no particular reason. I would not recommend it. Today I will be purchasing a better quality, digital scale for a few more dollars and I suggest you do the same if you want accuracy and durability.

great item- for shipping i up the measurement 1 oz to make sure it doesnt go over the estimated weight. for anything else its pretty exact, you can tare manually, by sliding the bottom over, for a plastic item and its price it does the trick. very happy. have used it eveyday for about a month. glad i didnt spend more on something else. hope this is helpful.

i opened the box and right off the bat it just didn't look right. pulled the scale out and noticed the top of the scale was unbalanced and it wouldn't move, so i fixed the bottem so it would work & the top wouldn't go back on. after i sat and dinked around with it for over an hour i finally gave up when all i did was push down and the weight indicator snapped. spend the extra money and get a nice scale.....

It's an ok scale for the price. The intructions are very bad. It said to zero the scale by turning scale ring but doesn't tell you what the scale ring even is. After searching the Internet for a day and taking the top of and coming up with nothing. I was ready to return this scale. Low and have behold I decided to turn the transparent rubber or the middle part and that zeroed it. The box needs to say what the scale ring is and this will be an easy to use scale right from the start.

The price is right, but the product is poorly designed. When I tried to set the scale to 0 for accurate measuring, but had no luck. When I opened the cover, I saw that there are two plastic tabs (not removable) on the inside that prevent the needle from moving beyond those tabs which makes this scale useless.
