The solution? Just wait! I put the new batteries in, noticed the flashing, and started searching online to see if this was a problem. After about 5 minutes, the screen stopped flashing, and all was normal! This might be a calibration, or some other new battery diagnostic. Just wait a few minutes and it should start working correctly!
This scale flipped out on me once, and was flashing all sorts of weird numbers. I wasn't sure what was going on.
That was only one time, however, and since then, it's been performing beautifully. I've started selling on ebay again, and am thrilled that I can use this to weigh very light items. It's extremely accurate, and enables me to buy postage online. So despite that one occasion, I'm really happy w/the scale and I'll keep my 5-star rating -- especially for having paid $19. Will update if things change.
I bought this a few days ago from Costco ($19) and have been loving using it every chance I get! My only experience with kitchen scales is that they're bulky, sometimes have different parts you have to put together, stick out in odd places, and are shaped in such a way that they're awkward to store.
Not this one! it's slim, smooth, is 1 piece, and is super easy to turn on and use. You can quickly switch between ounces and grams if you need to, or use the "Tare" button if you've put a bowl (or prior ingredients) on the scale and want to start from zero again. The on/off button barely takes the light tap of a finger, and you've immediately got this bright, easy-to-read digital screen. It goes up to 11 pounds, which is higher than I've ever seen in a kitchen scale.
(Sidenote: it also occurred to me that I could use this as a postage scale if needed, and avoid waiting in long lines at the post office.)
As another reviewer said, it's really convenient to store; I'd say it's like a hardcover book. For me it makes a *huge* difference working with a basic square that's uniformly shaped/symmetrical on all sides, and nothing protruding. I just turn mine onto its side and slide it between two tall plastic flour storage containers. I'm gentle with it, because I want it to last a long time, so I think this is a safe place for it (rather than putting it underneath or on top of another item).
As a novice cook, I'm just so happy to finally have something like this in my kitchen, within arm's reach at all times. No more wondering how to guesstimate what 8 oz of potatoes would be. Today I came home from the farmer's market with some broccoli, and immediately weighed it so I'd know what I had to work with when I went to look up recipes. I'd never done that before with my other scales, but this one is just a pleasure to use. (When I realized that, I decided to take a moment and write this review. =) )
All of this ease, convenience & functionality, *and* the scale itself is absolutely beautiful, a shiny white glass surface and smooth corners. Highly recommend.
The all glass top makes it easy to clean and sanitize, the touch buttons are precisely calibrated to work with minor effort, and the tare button makes it easy to add several ingredients without emptying the container. Easy to store in the kitchen drawer where it is easily accessible for everyday use.
Polder has been around since 1976 and have been making innovative scales for several years. They seem to specialize in practical, yet beautifully designed kitchen accessories. If this scale is reliable I'll become a fan of the brand. So far so good.
I went to Polder.com and emailed them asking for a RMA because the scale died after 3 months. Chris Scott of Polder wrote back to me and said they are shipping me a replacement scale. I received the scale today and it works fine.
