This user-friendly digital food scale is perfect for weighing all ingredients. Weigh items directly on the platform, on a plate, or in a bowl; the display can be pulled away from the base to prevent shadowing from large plates and bowls. The display features large, easy-to-read numbers with an optional backlight to make the display easier to read; a weight indicator shows the capacity left on the scale before maximum capacity is reached. Press the zero button to offset the weight of a container or to set the weight back to zero so you can add additional ingredients. The stainless steel platform can be removed for cleaning.
