I bought this scale a couple weeks ago as I was beginning a low calorie diet. Using this scale to count calories has been a walk in the park, and the Tare feature is a real plus. This has personally been an invaluable tool, and I use it a LOT, and would not be without it now. (Haven't used the timer but that's a nice added feature to have when I need it).
It's very attractive, and looks nice on the kitchen counter. It has four different weight measurements, (lbs, oz, g, and kg), and seems to be extremely accurate. It will even weigh a napkin! I started to purchase a different brand, but I liked the fact that this uses AAA batteries versus the expensive lithium batteries the other brand I was looking at uses. Then after reading many of the other reviews on this item prior to purchasing, it was an easy choice.
Overall I am very happy with this product, and would highly reccommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced but attractive and quality kitchen scale. As an added and unexpected bonus, this morning I received an email from Ozeri thanking me for my purchase and offering me their Electric Pepper Mill & Grinder at NO ADDITIONAL COST - not even a shipping fee. (The peppermill grinder currently sells for $25 on amazon). So for $20, I received the kitchen scale and the peppermill grinder, which by the way, was also highly rated.
I don't know how anyone could top that unbelievable value. I'm not sure if everyone who purchases the scale is offered the free peppermill grinder or if this is just a temporary promotion, but even without the grinder, I believe the kitchen scale is a great value on its own merit, and would highly reccommend it to anyone.
