The scale has proved to be excellent, after some confusion at the outset. The confusion stemmed from two aspects: the buttons on the actual scale received were slightly different than those on all of the online pictures - was it the right scale? Also, the name of the scale includes the words "and Nutrition"; however, the only "nutrition" capability is the booklet which accompanied, and which allowed the mechanical translation of weighed items to calories per gram - disappointing, if that's important to you. As a scale, though, (which is what we wanted), it is terrific - accurate, the tare feature works well, and - as others have commented - the large surface allows you to see the clear digital readout even when you have a large plate on it. After a month of service, no complaints with the scale.
