About this deal
AC adapter: A scale’s batteries should last a long time with average use, but when you’re making large batches of food or cooking all day, an AC adapter can be another nice feature. It is characterized by being a basic scale, without too much sophistication except the essential features.
If you want to check to see if your scale is accurate, there's a simple test—and it involves pocket change. The built-in timer is handy, too—a lot of bread recipes have rest periods between adding yeast and salt or stretching and folding the dough, and it’s easy to start the timer right on the scale. The primary function of a scale is to consistently and accurately weigh ingredients, so inaccurate scales were immediately out of the running.
It also shuts off after two minutes, which could set you back if you’re measuring several ingredients. Accurate measurements: The best scales weigh things accurately and consistently—whether 10 grams or 10 pounds. Most kitchen scales have a hard time accurately measuring anything less than five grams (like baking soda or salt), but the OXO Brew has no trouble reading those weights quickly and accurately.
We’re not really sure what “print” means (the instruction manual doesn’t help), but it’s easy to ignore. What we didn't like: With only three and a half inches between the center of the platform and the display, weighing in larger bowls or vessels can become problematic with this scale, despite the platform's slight elevation. To test how easy each scale was to clean, we buried it in flour, then took note of how readily it wiped clean with a towel.But it’s nice to have the range in case you want to weigh a pork shoulder or a large batch of bread. Etekcity Food Kitchen Scale: This scale was unable to measure smaller ingredients and failed at our first test of measuring a 2g penny.
However, since it offers a capacity of 60 pounds and reads in increments of 2 to 5 grams, it’s not as precise as we wanted for this review. Some advanced models even offer multi-point calibration, allowing for higher accuracy over a broader range of weights. You can calibrate some scales, such as the My Weigh KD8000, using lab weights, but since heavy calibration weights tend to be far more expensive than a kitchen scale, that isn’t a practical option. This precision scale has a 12000 gram capacity and triple range resolutions for getting the accuracy you need.

This wasn’t the case with our former top pick, the Jennings CJ4000, which required frequent battery replacements.
