  • MULTIFUNCTIONAL- Scale is able to weigh in various measurements, making it perfect for all your weighing needs! Weighs in g, oz., ct., ozt., dwt and gn. Whether you are weighing gold, powder, medication or anything for cooking this scale has the right measurements for you!
  • TARE FUNCTION- Scale comes with a tare function for items that are difficult to weigh and need to be placed in a container or on one of the weighing pans. Place your container or pan on the scale, press the tare function and then put your items in the container/pan.
  • ACCURATE- Utilizes high precision sensor system to get an accurate reading every time! This scale has a thousandth of a gram accuracy (0.001g) so it is extremely precise. This accuracy takes the guesswork out of measuring finer items, so you can just place the items on the scale and know that your reading is the most accurate it can be with this top of the line scale!
  • CALIBRATION WEIGHTS INCLUDED – Although your Smart Weigh scale will arrive calibrated, we have included two Smart Weigh 10g calibration weights. Should you notice any inaccuracies in your scale throughout your time using it, simply use these weights and follow the directions to re-calibrate it so you can continue to use your scale accurately!

 

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.

With resolution down to the thousandth of a gram, this would be a candidate for use with both hops and water salts.  Note that this has a relatively small capacity of 20 grams (about .7 ounces).
