        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

        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.
