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.

110 lb Capacity Digital Scale with Remote Display

Accuteck ShipPro W-8580 110lbs x 0.1 oz Red Digital shipping postal scale, Limited Edition

Accuteck ShipPro W-8580 110lbs x 0.1 oz Digital Scale in red.  110 lb capacity, .01 oz accuracy.  Start Weight from 10g/0.5oz.  Reads in lbs/ounces, ounces, kilograms/grams and grams.  Extended cord with Large Backlit energy saving display.  Features tare and hold functions.  Can be powered by batteries, USB cable or AC adapter. (All Included). Dimensions : 10 x 8 x 3 inches.

Considering this scale’s size and features it looks like it would make a good grain scale… Large 110 lb capacity, Remote display unit with 18″ cord (means you can weigh larger things and still see the display), nice sized weighing platform and the requisite (in my opinion) tare feature.  Tare allows you to essentially subtract the weight of the container to get a true reading on contents.  Add the container you’re going to use, hit tare to zero out the scale and then add you ingredients.
