    Overall performance score

    Expand to view more details.

    We used calibrated weights to test accuracy in 1g and 10g increments, and at maximum capacity, which makes up 75% of the performance score. Tare performance (reset to zero) makes up the remainder.

    Ease of use score

    Expand to view more details.

    Ease of use consists of ease of reading the measurement on the display (including when the bowl is in position), ease of using the controls (tare, standby and memory) and ease of cleaning.

    10g increments performance test score

    We use calibrated weights to see how well the scales measure 10g increments. A score of zero means it was very poor at accuracy under 10g.

    Recalibrate function

    Expand to view more details.

    Over time and with frequent use you may need to recalibrate the scale to ensure ongoing accuracy.

    Continuous weighing tare function

    Expand to view more details.

    Continuous weighing is handy if you need to keep adding ingredients to a bowl. The tare function lets you weigh a new item without removing the old one by resetting the scales as you weigh.
