Bought this scale to weigh my litter of puppies. It’s fantastic so far. I just put a plate on it, tare the plate, and then set a puppy on it. Works like a charm. Would definitely recommend it. Plus it’s very nice looking. Great for the kitchen if that’s what you’re buying it for.

Really nice digital scale. Bought it for weighing coffee for my grinder Good size surface area for weighing.
Despite some users saying it’s inaccurate, I borrowed a 200g weight to test it. As per the attached photo, it got 201. That’s plenty accurate for me.

I just recently received this beautiful and most of all easy to use kitchen scale by Etekcity! This scale was extremely accurate and precise. When measuring cooking ingredients, I was relieved to know that the digital scale did not become imprecise, meaning bouncing back and forth between decimal points despite the unit changes when shifting to and from grams, ounces, and milliliters. Overall, the scale could also virtually fit anywhere in a kitchen (I.e., kitchen drawer, cabinet, on the counter etc.) In addition, the scale is quite nicely made and I suspect that it will be very durable and last me a long time!

This scale is terrible. It is true, you get what you pay for and I only paid $8. The weight reading continues to move up and down. I used a calibrated scale side by side and weighed 4 grams. This scale went back and forth from 3-5 while the other one gave exactly 4. Honestly wish I had spent a little extra money on a better scale. I work in law enforcement and need more precise weights than +/- 1.

For those claiming inaccuracies, you know the jar or can adds weight right? They label shows the weight of the contents but not the packaging. The scale is completely accurate. There should be an iq test before you can leave a negative review. Honestly I’ve gone through a few scales now mainly due to the batteries they use. I love this one uses AAA. The metallic finish matches my fridge so it looks nice on the counter top. It’s small but not so much so that you can’t put a plate or something on there to get your weights. I just wish that it cane with a tray. Previous scales ive purchased had trays that made weighing lighter stuff easier. But all in all this is the best bang for your buck in my opinion.

It easy to weigh things but if the container you are using is large it is very difficult to see the weight . Display should be facing outward not straight up.

Edit 5/9/19 – So the seller asked if I would receive a new unit at this point to see if they could take care of the original issues I had with the first product. This unit seems to have fixed all of my original issues with the product over the past 2 weeks. They went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied. I would recommend.
Original review – I meal prep and I bought this to weigh out all my food for the entire week and then cook. The one day I cook a week I use this scale for maybe a half-hour in total on time. I turn it off and then the next week I go to turn it on the batteries are dead. I’ve changed the batteries everytime I use it essentially. This thing drains the battery even when not in use.

So far so good. Only time will tell. [update] The scale sticks between units. If I’m trying to switch between g to ml I have to push the button multiple times to switch. Sometimes it doesn’t switch at all and I look up conversions..sigh..it’s only been 2.5 months since purchase and the return window is closed. Waste of money because now I have to buy a new one.

Not sensitive to low weights. The scale is almost useless for measuring out spices and yeast and other items which are in the low single digits of grams. You can only work around it by putting something heavy on the scale (like a plate), then putting the measuring paper on top of that and then pouring on the ingredient. The last scale I bought from Amazon did not have this problem.
The scale is also grossly imprecise, on the order of 10-20%. This can be tested easily – put a cup on the scale and measure a significant amount of ingredients, say 14 grams of salt and 6 grams of sugar. Remove the cup and put a different cup on the scale, tare the weight, then pour in what should be 20 grams from the first cup. It will come out WAY different.
This scale is basically trash. The last scale I bought from amazon was routinely accurate to within 1%.

Easy to use, pretty accurate scale, love the way it looks (very sleek and easy to clean since its a stainless steel top)
The only issue i had is looking at the actual read out… Since the entire thing is pretty flat on the top, if you place any sort of decent sized bowl or plate, it completely obstructs the digital screen. You end up having to see if you can push back the bowl and get a look at while bending over to look under the curve of the bowl or placing a thinner box and the plate or bowl on top of the box.
Honestly the scale would have been 5 stars but the fact you cant see the display without going through a mission is pretty annoying.
EDIT: After giving it 3 stars Etekcity contacted me to let me know that they had a larger version and sent it free of charge, it was the
Etekcity Digital Kitchen Scale Multifunction Food Scale with 30% Wider Platform 11lb 5kg, 3 GP Batteries Included (Stainless Steel)
, which pretty much negates the issue I mentioned above. And after I looked it up they have a newer version of the one I was sent that has the read out to the side which seems even more practical.
For customer service alone, I had to raise my initial 3 stars to four!

I have shown here different weigh of item and the scale shows more weight then the actual weight. I don’t know what I have paid for. I don’t like to go after this in returning process n all. I wish if Amazon can kindly refund my money. As I have attached the picture for your acknowledgement. Thanks

This stainless steel scale works really well for us. For the price you can’t beat it.
If you cook and bake a lot like we do, the scale helps achieve an accurate measurement. It’s super convenient when a recipe calls for an ingredient in grams and you don’t have the tools to measure, this scale is simple to use and accurate.
In our video you can see it turns on quickly. You can change the unit while the item is on the scale. And it turns off within seconds.
We’ve used this scale many times over the last few years and we are still using the same AAA batteries it came with.The small grips on the bottom of the scale are nice to have.Overall it’s a great scale and even better price!

I considered long and hard about how to rate this product. It is designed to do one thing, weigh small amounts of food. It is aesthetically designed well. And that is as far as it goes in delivering on its intended function. The “tare” or zero function is coupled to the measuring function. Meaning, when you put a dish on the scale then zero the display, the resulting value will include the weight of your finger pushing the button. The product fails to do what it is advertised to do; accurately measure the weight of food. The designer must not be an engineer. I would recommend another product to weigh food. I will be returning this and finding a better product. When I do I will update this review with my findings. (I gave it two stars because. It looks nice)
