The model number for this scale is AWS-100-CAL. I *believe* that this is the same scale as the AWS-100 with the addition of a 100 gram calibration weight. I have the AWS-100 and it’s a great scale for weighing hops and water salts. It features a 100 gram capacity, .01 gram resolution, stainless steel weighing platform and the (in my opinion) essential tare feature. I also like that it uses easy to find AAA batteries. See my Hands on Review of that great scale.
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.
