OXO Good Grips Food Scale with Pull-Out Display
Good Grips Food Scale with Pull-Out Display by OXO
Dimensions: 11.25'' x 8.6'' x 2.125''
Weight: 2 lb. 9 oz.
OXO’s user-friendly Food Scale with Pull-Out Display is perfect for weighing all ingredients. Weigh items directly on the platform, on a plate or in a bowl, and pull the display away from the base to prevent shadowing from large plates and bowls. Accurately measure ingredients when cooking and baking and stick to a diet by weighing portions. An optional backlight makes the display easier to read and a weight indicator shows the capacity left on the Scale before maximum capacity is reached. Press the zero button to offset the weight of a container or to set the weight back to zero so you can add additional ingredients.
The display features large, easy-to-read numbers which measure in 1/8-oz (imperial) and 1-g (metric) increments. The stainless steel platform can be removed for cleaning but no parts are dishwasher safe. The Scale has an 11-lb capacity and 4 AAA batteries are included.

OXO WAS FOUNDED IN 1990 ON THE PHILOSOPHY OF UNIVERSAL DESIGN, WHICH IS THE CONCEPT OF DESIGNING PRODUCTS THAT ARE EASY TO USE FOR THE LARGEST POSSIBLE SPECTRUM OF USERS. AT OXO, LIVING BY UNIVERSAL DESIGN PRINCIPLES GIVES US AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THINGS FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. THE GOAL OF MAKING PRODUCTS MORE USABLE FORCES US TO FIRST IDENTIFY PROBLEMS AND INEFFICIENCIES OF EXISTING PRODUCTS (INCLUDING OUR OWN), NOT ONLY IN TERMS OF COMFORT, BUT PERFORMANCE AS WELL. THIS GIVES US THE FOUNDATION TO MEET OUR COMMITMENT OF MAKING ONLY PRODUCTS THAT OFFER TANGIBLE IMPROVEMENTS. EACH YEAR, OXO INTRODUCES MORE THAN 50 PRODUCTS. MANY OF THESE PRODUCTS TAKE MORE THAN TWO YEARS TO DEVELOP. IN FACT, A FEW OF THE PRODUCTS NEVER MAKE IT TO THE MARKET BECAUSE THEY FAIL TO MEET THE OXO CRITERIA.

The scale is very easy to use and the display is easy to read. I like the ability to rest to zero between items and the back light feature.
You can't go wrong with this scale. Great for weighing food portions and even checking the weight of letters, etc for postage rates. OXO is a great brand and the pull out feature of the LCD display window makes it very easy to read weights no matter how large in diameter the item you have placed on the scale is. It zeroes easily and the display can be illuminated too at the touch of a button. So glad I went with this purchase!
