From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • High Accuracy: AMIR digital pocket kitchen scale built with high precision sensor system, provides you with instant and accurate results from 0.01g (0.001oz) to 200g. Easy to clean and use, guarantee you an accurate weighing reading.
  • 7 Different Measurements: The mini food scale includes all the necessary unit measurements for easy weight translations, convert measurement between in g, gn, oz, ozt, ct, tl and dwt in seconds. Convenient for you to choose the proper unit by pressing the mode button.
  • Protective Cover: The jewelry scale designed with a stainless steel platform and a protective flip cover. It is crafted to be strong, durable, and pocket-size for many of your portable weighing needs, such as food, tablets, powder, gemstones, coins, jewelry, gold, etc. What a useful pocket scale!
  • Compact Design & Back-Lit: Minimalistic and compact design (Product Dimensions: 3″ x 5″ x 3/4″) make it a portable pocket scale to take everywhere. Built with a clear blue back-lit LCD screen, enables you to read easily and clearly.
  • Intelligent Indication: The cooking scale can alert users for low battery power, overload, and uneven surface placement. Auto-off after 30 seconds of inactivity, which helps to preserve battery power and efficiency; 2 AAA batteries included.

 

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.

What I like about this scale… I like that this has the tare function and that it has a 1/100th gram resolution.  That means you should be able to use it for weighing hops, water salts, smaller amounts of specialty grains (200 grams is about 7 ounces) and other brewing ingredients.  I also like that it uses easy to find AAA batteries [Search “AmazonBasics Batteries”] and that it has a stainless top and a protective cover.

11/8/18 11 PM Central: This has dropped to just $8.49. That’s the best historical third party Amazon price I found. Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly. Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change. Prices and availability were accurate at the time this this post was published; however, they may differ from those you see when you visit Amazon.

Given the specs of this scale, it should work for weighing hops, water salts, smaller amounts of specialty grains (500 grams is about 17.6 ounces or just over a pound) and other brewing ingredients.\

A smaller scale can work for all grain brewers, as you can weigh any amount of grain in multiple batches, but if you’re a large batch all grain brewer or regularly brew all grain batches with larger grain bills you may want to consider a two scale approach, one more precise scale for hops and a larger capacity scale for larger grain bills.  A couple scales to consider:
