Tare Function: Tare allows you to subtract the weight of the container you’re using to get a true weight of the contents.  Add your empty container to the scale and press the tare button.  This zeros out the scale.  Now add the thing you’re weighing and the scale displays just the weight of the contents of your container.  In my opinion the tare function is essential for any good homebrewing scale.

Things I like about this scale… It uses easy to find AAA batteries [Search AmazonBasics Batteries]. It has the Tare Feature.  That allows you to essentially zero out your container to get a true picture of the weight of the contents.  I also like that it has a stainless top.  Given the specs on this scale, it should work for grain, hops, other brewing ingredients and more.

      I get what you’re saying. I had pasted the wrong wording in there with regards to it being an add on. It’s corrected now. Thanks Adam!
