    Almost worthless. Scale shuts off in seconds if not using,meaning that while you are adding ingredients and wait too long to add more, the scale shuts off. Then you have to start over and you've lost the tare weight. Very frustrating. I could understand auto off after 10 minutes, but 60 seconds?? Also display is hard to read with a large diameter bowl sitting on it. I would not recommend this scale,we will be looking for one elsewhere..

    Totally disappointed, I just received the scale as of yesterday and today I was so excited to use it for the 1st time. As a chef, getting a change to try out brand new items is pretty exciting. Anyway, I took it out of the box to use for the 1st time, as directed per directions, I turn on the scale, waited for 0.0' place item on scale and nothing. The scale never gave me a reading. The only thing it did do is auto shut down way to quick. Also, I didn't feel the quality was that great but what do you expect for the price. I should of know it isn't NSF certified. Tomorrow I'm going to definitely return this back.

    After only a few short weeks the mode button stopped working and I could no longer toggle between kg and lb thankfully one was stuck on lbs and the other on kg but still that should not be happening so shortly after purchase

    This scale does not work!!!! It will not switch from kg. to lb. It also shuts down in 5 seconds, making it impossible to use.

    We have been using this brand of scale for quite a while. Given that it is used in a bakery, and gets LOTS of use, it has held up well.

    This scale I ordered arrived not perfect..not flat, so I contacted Webstaurant by chat. The respond really good, 5 stars for that. Webstaurant promised to send me a new one. Next day I got email from them, asked me if I keep that they will refund me 25%....it's okay for me. The scale works good but because not flat, I spilled the beans I weighed. So, I sent email, say no....they sent me the new one. My husband calibrate the un-perfect one. Yes, not precise..but the new one..it's perfect. Thank you..big thank you to Webstaurants

    I have a love hate relationship with this thing. The main thing to know is have your freaking mise en place! Forgot to have the cream? Even if you run like a bat out of hell and back it will have turned off. As others have said...it shuts off quickly! Even if you are just pouring your ingredients in slowly it will sometimes shut off. I found myself "tapping" the platform of a spring scale the other day because it had become such a habit with this one to keep it from turning off. That being said we have been using this for probably about a year now and it still works. For the price that was given for it I still call this one a win.

    from Nate Hines Posted on

    We have ordered several of these over the past 2.5 years. I guess you get what you pay for. We have purchased 3 in the past 7 months and all 3 have broken. Some work for 6 months, some work for 6 days. We will be looking for an alternative scale I think.

    This scale has worked great for us. It is easy to use and has worked well in our kitchen. We would reccomend using to any one.

    Great portion scale for our busy kitchen. It used every day for, several times a day. It's small size make it perfect to move around to the different stations throughout the day.

    from Cafe dj Posted on

    Check out my photo review to see how highly accurate this scale is. I put a 500 gram weight on it and it reads it exactly to the gram. Which for you non metric folks is 1/28 of an oz!!! That is awesome!

    from WAFFLES2GO Posted on

    500 gram to the exact gram! Buy this scale!

    A great economical scale for portion control or ingredients weighing. Accurate measurements and easy to use. Breaks easily if dropped off the counter though, but overall a good value.

    from The Savage Patch Posted on

    Gets a lot of use, so it has held up pretty well considering. Sometimes it takes a few tries to "wake it up" and turn it on, but nothing too worrisome!

    from The French Press Coffee Co. Posted on

    Perfect size scale for weighing our frozen yogurt sundaes in our concession trailer. Works with batteries or plug in to wall, great product, great price

    from Krave Frozen Yogurt & Candy Shoppe Posted on

    This is a nifty little scale. You can't beat the price anywhere. Definitely not indestructible or the nicest scale out there. But it works well and gets the job done for cheap.

    from Seasons Plant Based Bistro Posted on

    Scale

    I really wish i purchased one of these years ago. Has batteries but also has a cord to plug in when your batteries die!! Which is a huge help!

    from Stellas cakes Posted on

    Awesome scale

    This small digital scale was a needed addition for my business. Having this scale to pre-measure my ingredients helps my business reduce waste and save money.

    from Chew Dat Foods, LLC Posted on

    I do a lot of baking and always weight my ingredients. This digital scale is great for that. It weighs in gram or ounces up to 20lbs and has a tare button. Very happy with it.

    Posted on

    Love the large bright display on this scale.

    This is a good scale for easy portioning. I weighed out 25 pounds of 1/4 pound burger portions today and this scale was a good up-grade from my old scale.

    from Comfort Cusine Posted on

    Easy to use scale for a weighing needs.

    Works ok for measuring, but forget about trying to add ingredients using the tare feature. it turns off almost immediately. Worthless. You get what you pay for. Would have been better off to spend more up front, cause now I have to get another one that won't turn off so fast.

    Super easy to use. Compact size helps for storage. Easy to clean. Easy to read. I love that I don't have to do anything complicated to use different packaging items with it.

    from Harvest Coffee Community Center (Harvest With a He Posted on

    Fine for weighing candy. The only issue is that anything weighing less than a full pound is displayed in ounces - not pound increments. I had to made a cheat sheet and stick it near the scale so our employees would correctly weight everything.

    from Curls and Cream Posted on

    I use this scale daily to weigh my products for packaging. It's compact and weighs accurately. Great price as well. Like tge fact it has a plug in option.

    from The Guardian Dragon, LLC Posted on

    It worked well for me. I don't use it everyday but it's been fine every time I have used it. It's accurate, I tested, and like the convenience of the plug or batteries.

    Posted on

    Love love love this scale. It was great to find a digital one that holds a good amount of weight. Has been working very well for our baking.

    Posted on

    Use this scale almost every day! it has great precision down to the gram and can handle enough weight so I can weight out my fully cooked dishes! Perfect for meal prep and calorie counting.

    beautiful scale to have its very light and fast and dont forget about the digital thing it is on battery so u dont have really to charge it

    from Ahmed Abuhammoud Posted on

    Daily use

    These scales are fantastic. They work great. The reset for non use is delayed so you have plenty of time to add ingredients to get a total weight. We purchased several of these and have had no problems and they are priced great!

    from Trexcon Posted on

    So happy with this scale! We had trouble finding a small scale that would go over the typical 11lb mark and were skeptical of this one due to the low price. Happy to say that we are completely satisfied and are ordering more! I like that you can use batteries or plug it in.

    from Thirsty Whale Bakery Posted on

    This is a great scale. Only two small complaints: one is that it turns off very quickly. So if you are measuring something and have to step away, you will lose your measurement. Secondly, when adding small quantities of ingredients, it can take awhile to register, which has caused putting in too much of something before realizing it was too much. Other than those two issues, a very decent scale for the price!

    from Ivory Road LLC Posted on

    Great scale at a great price. Once you use this scale, you will wonder why anyone would pay extra as this one does all you need. It's accurate and should last for years.

    from Trekker Ltd. Posted on

    This scale works fine for quick measuring in the kitchen. When compared with other working scales, the scale measures mass just fine. It seems to be light to medium duty. Here are some cons: The backlight is automatic and is harsh on your eyes. There's no visible "button" to turn it off, but if you touch the "update" logo, you'll find the button beneath it to turn off the backlight. HOWEVER, if you turn off the backlight, the scale will be off by 0.5 oz. You can always zero the scale, so it's not too big of a problem, but it's certainly interesting. Also, the display board is covered with a thin plastic film that is risen off the lcd, meaning that it can be easily punctured. I'm not sure how durable this scale would be in a busy kitchen.

    from FPD Posted on

    This digital scale works well for weighing out our bulk bagged taffy. Haven't played around too much with it. I like that there's a battery option as well as a plug-in version.

    Posted on

    This scale is a decent scale for the price. You could almost consider it a disposable if needed. The performance is as discribed. Works well!

    from Opa! Restaurant Group Posted on

    Best scale that I have found on this website. It's an excellent way to weigh in either pounds and grams or by unit. Hasn't broken after a year of use in a commercial kitchen!

    from Town Square Market Posted on

    we use this scale to weigh pizza dough balls. the team is pretty rough with equipment so I prefer not to spend much. this scale works well and holds up to abuse. but, when it does fail, it's ok because the cost is so reasonable. I always keep an extra on hand.

    Posted on

    This is a good little scale. It has an AC adapter and a place for batteries, but it does not appear to work off of battery power alone so i am not sure what the batteries are for. However, it's easy to use, the display is bright, and it has a silver top that comes off for easy cleaning.

    Posted on

    I love these scales. They are heavy duty with a clear digital read out. They work especially well for measuring baking ingredients, as you can easily tare them.

    from Phanton Chef LLC Posted on

    This is by far the worst digital scale I've ever used. It shuts off after just seconds, weighing items less than 10 grams is virtually impossible, and it stopped taking accurate measurements after less than one month of use. Spend the extra $6 and get a different scale.

    Upgraded to this digital scale from a smaller glass one. Easily measure up to 20 pounds with it. Small but does a great job. Batteries included, as well as a plug.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    I love this scale! It is easy to read, operate, and it's user friendly. It is easy to clean and store when I am not using it.

    from Fenmore Hills Hotel Posted on

    They look really nice and compact but are very frustrating to use. Bought 4 of these for my frozen yogurt business but the attached cord didn´t work on any of them. Used the batteries but the scale turns of so quickly. After a month use only 1 of them works.

    got this for precision repack of foods. Excellent once calibrated to ensure accuracy. Keeps portion control issues at bay, and helps us with exact weight measuring for certain baking projects

    from The B and B By The Bay Posted on

    We've ordered this scale before and it lasted a few months before one decided not to work and the next month the other one wouldn't power on unless you took the batteries out and put the batteries back in. So every time it shut off someone had to open the battery panel, pull the batteries out, place them back in and work quickly so it won't shut off. For the price of the scale I wasn't surprised so I ordered another scale two weeks ago. After only two weeks it won't power back on. We've tried replacing with new batteries and using while plugging in the power cord, nothing. I have requested to replace the scale because even though its really cheap it shouldn't be this cheap. You get what you pay but I will definitely not order this scale again. Save yourself the trouble, spend a few more $$ on a quality digital scale.

    Clear reader, nice and light weight but the unit does shut down very quickly. I tend to push the scale even in between items to keep it in use so I don't have to turn it on again and again. I only use this at home so not too much of a hassle but if I used it more often I would buy a different scale.

    from Mercury Pizza Co Posted on

    Only had this scale about 3 months before it started having problems. From the beginning it only ever would stay on about 10 seconds even when plugged in making it very difficult to weigh ingredients. Now it doesn't turn on at all even when plugged in. Wouldn't recommend buying this. Invest the money in a good scale that will last!

    Out of many brands and style, I picked this small and easy to use scale because it fit my needs and fit perfectly in my kitchen. Accuracy is great and easy to store too!

    The compact digital scale is simple and easy to use. It has a tare feature, which we use often to weigh our product. It does the job if you are looking for a cost efficient scale. It operates with AA batteries or ac adapter. My biggest complaint about this scale is, after 30 seconds of being idle, the scale will automatically shut off which can be quite frustrating.

    from hello@thestickandtheball.com Posted on

    I absolutely HATE this scale. The auto-off feature after 60 seconds is unbelievably frustrating. And it can't be switched to weigh in ounces. It weighs fine and is accurate, but you better have everything you are weighing lined up, ready to go and move FAST!

    This is a high quality digital scale. You can zero out the scale after putting a container on top to add ingredients to. The scale measures in grams, ounces, and pounds. A must have to accurately measure ingredients

    Good quality scale at a great price. This scale is very precise, down to the exact gram. We use it often and it works great.

    We use this scale to weigh all our hamburger patties at 5.5oz each. It seems to hold up very well but after about 6 months finally went out. Not bad for the price though! Thanks

    from Burger Station Posted on

    This digital scale does wonders for portion control. It reads within .05lb and has a fast read. As long as you stay on the move weighing things out it stay on without having to turn it on over and over again. Have another one as a back up but haven't needed it. Price is right as always.

    Posted on

    This is a good working scale. My only down fall is i wish it would measure ounces past a pound. Otherwise light weight and easy to use

    from Watershed Cafe Posted on

    We use this scale every da . It measures accurately and quickly. It is compact and light so can be used in a variety of functions.

    Love this scale. It's compact, easy to use and the fact that it has both battery and plug-in capability is awesome. The auto shut-off is very quick. A longer period for this would make the product 5 stars.

    I was hesitant at the price but boy did we make a good buy!! Excellent quality, nice backlit screen, very nice look and best of all the Price!!! Love it!!

    This premium scale will weigh a small turkey. It has an easy to read display screen with push button control. Its compact for easy storage.

    from Go cheez Posted on

    Nice quality scale and very easy to use. Beware the auto shut off function as it can be frustrating when weighing multiple combined ingredients. Overall good though!

    Posted on

    compact scale weighing candy

    This scale measures accurately, but it does not stay on very long. If you do not get your ingredients measured fast enough, it will turn off before you have finished weighing. So, if you need to weigh large quantities, I would not recommend buying this scale.

    Posted on

    when it arrived it was damaged during shipping,called customer service and got a replacement really fast.Great customer service,and friendly to.handles all my needs really well.

    Posted on

    This is not a good scale if you can't weigh what you need in seconds. It says that it cuts off with one minute of inactivity but mine cuts off only after 30 seconds. Not good to use in my bakery.

    from Sweets by laDawn Posted on

    i like this digital scale, the price is very good and the quality of this product is good, is included the battery and the AC adapter and the display is retro illuminate..

    I have gone through several scales since opening my business and have found this one to be the most durable. You can't beat this scale for both use or value.

    from BDGrilling, Inc. Posted on

    I love this little scale. It is exactly as described and then some. It states that it is a 20 pound but on my scale it can do almost 23 pounds. After a week of use I will definitely recommend it. Than k you WEBstaurant Store for the quality and the price.

    from lisabridalstore Posted on

    nice little digi scale. easy to use, read, nice and simple. some feel that it turns itself off is a bad thing. not me, I like that feature!

    Posted on

    Generally good but it turns itself off if you're not actively using it so if you run to the walk-in for more of whatever you'll have to reweigh everything by the time you get back. Also, hard to see the display with large bowls on it. And finally the housing around the ac adapter came away from the wires which then snapped. So, I guess, really not that good of a scale.

    Posted on

    I thought it would be nice to own a scale but never realized just how much we would use it!!! We use this all the time and it makes things so much easier knowing exactly how much something weighs! Great scale and I love that it can work on batteries OR plugged in!

    Posted on

    Very happy with this scale. The display is backlit which really helps in darker rooms. The display also sits at an angle which is hugely useful if you have a big bowl sitting on the scale. The batteries that were included with the scale have lasted over two months already.

    Posted on

    The 20lb. compact digital scale has been a great addition to our kitchen. It allows very easy and accurate portion control. Making prep just a little easier.

    from backwater Posted on

    Use this team every day and still going strong!! Plug it in it put batteries in it! Either way it works and will continue to work as long as you don't drop it more then 20x

    This scale is perfect behind the bar. We weigh everything. Small and compact. The battery option is a must for mobility. I'd buy two. These are great to have in multiple locations.

    from Culinary Creations Posted on

    What an amazing little scale! It works like a charm, easy to read numbers, big surface for our measuring bowls and you can weight up to 20 lb on it.

    First one we received was damaged, but Webstaurant Store replaced it without issues. New one works great! Thank you for great service. 5 Stars for this purchase.

    This is an excellent scale and by far worth every penny paid for it. What's funny is that I've bought scales that are priced $100 more than this one, but I would take this scale ANYDAY over any of the more expensive ones. Do yourself a favor and buy three of these instead of the price of one of those other ones...

    from Roll'n Pin Posted on

    Great digital scale for the price. Use it to see how many pounds and ounces are left when cutting meat. Up to 20 lbs with a tare function. Just as good as more expensive ones. Power cord not great broke after 1 week but battery included

    Posted on

    These scales are awesome for the price, very affordable, enough so that you can buy these for every spot you need them. these seem to be very durable, will definitely buy more!!!

    We use this scale in the back of my bakery. It is very accurate and very compact and fits right under the table and takes up no space at all.
