Ozeri Pronto Digital Scale

Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale, Elegant Black

Ozeri Pronto Digital Scale

  • weighs up to 11.24 lbs (5100 grams) with precise graduations of 0.05 oz (1 gram).
  • Automatic Unit Button instantly converts between 5 units of measurements (g, lbs, lbs:oz, oz, ml) and displays results on an easy-to-read LCD screen – e.g. easily convert 539 grams to 1.188 pounds to 1 pound 3 ounces to 19.01 ounces to 539 ml.
  • Precision Tare Button calculates the net weight of your ingredients by automatically subtracting the weight of any bowl or container.
  • Features a newly enlarged weighing platform finished in elegant chrome, and 2 large buttons that generate an audible click confirmation. Cleans and stores easily.
  • Runs on 2 AAA batteries (included) that automatically power-off after 2-minutes to preserve battery life, and an easy-access battery compartment (no screwdriver needed). Satisfaction Guaranteed.

With a capacity of 11 lbs and a resolution of 1 gram, you could use this for grain, hops and other brewing ingredients.  This also uses AAA (good in my opinion since these are easy to find).

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.

Ozeri Pro Digital Scale, 12 Lb Capacity

Ozeri Pro Digital Kitchen Food Scale, 1g to 12 lbs Capacity, in Stylish Black

Ozeri Pro Digital Scale from, you guessed it… Ozeri.

The manufacturer claims this is the most precise digital scale in it’s class.  12 lb capacity.  Weighs in pounds, kilogram, grams and ounces.  Oversized buttons, large LCD screen.  3 minute auto shut off.  Batteries included.  Tare Feature (very important in HBF’s book) – allows you to subtract the net weight of the container you’re using to get a true weight of contents.  Lightweight and easy to store.

With 1 gram resolution and a 12 lb capacity this would work well for hops all the way up to all grain.  If you’ve got a little more money to spend, consider a two scale solution.  A gram scale – with resolution to .01 grams – for hops, small amounts of specialty grains and water salts and larger capacity grain scale (with removable face for easily weighing a bucket)

Detachable, digital readout with two foot long cord.  Tare, Hold and (programmable) Auto Off Features.  Weighs in pounds, ounces, kilograms and grams.  Can operate using batteries or an AC adapter.  Large, Blue backlit LCD Display.
