nice little scale 01/09/2014
Normally I wouldn't waste my time but I got an interesting email from the company asking me to submit a review. I cook but not seriously therefore I don't measure. Just throw stuff in a pot. However occasionally I need a postal scale. The only way I can tell the accuracy is by weighing a penny or nickel. A nickel is 5g exact. Penny 2.5g. Several measures gave me different weights but was within 1 gram. That is, the accuracy seems to be +/- 1 gram. Okay for my use I guess. I've only had it a week though so we'll see although I read several other reviews that said they didn't have any problems even after a year.
I knocked off an egg because I really don't know how reliable this is. It seems pretty well built but.... the product box was pretty smashed in on one side. This happened before it was repacked by newegg. The scale itself wasn't damaged though and it still seemed to be accurate however a scale is not the kind of thing that you want to be knocking around so shame on whoever shipped this.
