I would like to see the users manual for this scale, but I don't see one. Maybe the manual would answer my questions. I would like to know how accurate the scale is (this is different than precision). I would also like to know if a user can calibrate the scale, and if so how?

Best Answer: Larry, we ordered two of these scales for the coffeehouse and they work brilliantly. Not aware of any specific calibration elements other than the ability to zero out each weighing before adding items say into a measuring cup, meaning placing the measuring cup on the scale, zeroing out, then adding items (in our case, beans or hot water) to a specific 10th of a pound, ounce or gram. Seems smack on each time. Only suggestion might be to also purchase rechargeable batteries. This scale is fairly conservative on battery consumption but there isn't any auto off option, therefore the scale remains on until pressing the off button. This is actually a proper way to have a scale because you do not want the scale turning off during a busy moment. We have however gone over to rechargeable batteries, due to sometimes forgetting to hit the off button. Bottom line, it's a great scale and precise . Hope this helps.

Will this fit a full size espresso portafilter on its weighing surface? Is the scale accurate/precise regardless of the portafilter's orientation... or do you get varying measurements in off-center zones? Thanks
Jason B on Apr 16, 2014
Best Answer: I use the scale for weighing or making tea. My analogy to a portafilter would be a teapot which spout and handle are hanging outside the plate. My experience is that it won't matter where exactly I place the teapot - whether in center or closer to any corner - it'll indicate the same weight. Same thing when I place a tin with a hanging hinged lid - it won't make any difference, I guess because this scale is very well calibrated. It doesn't mean that you may not get 0.001 plus or minus difference as after all this is not an atomic scale. I have to add that this is the best scale I ever had.

Great scaleReview by Jeff
I appreciate the ability to plug it into an outlet rather than battery. The weight readout is very fast to update, and it's plenty accurate.

The operation is very simple. I like that there are no functions that require a button to be held, rather than just pushed (seems to be common on other scales). I also like that it doesn't beep when the buttons are pushed.

No auto off feature is nice as well.

I suppose I don't prefer the glass scale surface compared to ones that are stainless steel, but I just use the trip tray now to avoid the glass.

Having the timer right in the scale is a very nice feature.

Overall it's the best scale I've used for pour over coffee.

The price is high for the scale market, but I think considering its speed, accuracy, ease of use and features it's still a good value. (Posted on 6/28/2013)
