Innacurate
by -
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.

A GREAT scale for the price
by -
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.

Very Simple & Easy
by -
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.

Broke after a few months, not very accurate
by -
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.

Not sensitive enough for kitchen use.
by -
 Verified purchaser
Scale reads in pounds/kilograms. Scales for kitchen need to read in ounces/grams.

worst purchase i've ever made at walmart
by -
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.....

Easy, low-tech scale-highly recommended
by -
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.
