Overall performance score
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.
enter value/s in increments of i between 65 and 100
Ease of use score
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.
enter value/s in increments of i between 54 and 78
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.
enter value/s in increments of i between 0 and 100
1kg performance test score
We use calibrated weights to see how well the scales measure 1kg.
enter value/s in increments of i between 96 and 100
Tare performance score
How well the tare function works (reset the scale to zero)
enter value/s in increments of i between 60 and 100
Over time and with frequent use you may need to recalibrate the scale to ensure ongoing accuracy.
Continuous weighing tare function
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.

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
