One way to make sure your recipes turn out right every time is to accurately measure your ingredients. Another big benefit is better control over your food costs. This digital portion control scale will give you accurate weights in one of five different measurements—pounds and ounces, pounds only, ounces only, kilograms, or grams—on a 2-1/2" x 1" backlit LCD screen. The digital scale has a tough, wipe-clean plastic housing, and a 6" x 6" stainless steel weighing platform that can be removed for cleaning and sanitizing or used as a tray. The portion control scale has piece count, unit and tare functions, and a field calibration feature ensures it's always accurate. The scale comes with an AC adapter and three AAA batteries, and has an auto shut-off after three minutes when in battery mode to conserve battery power. The digital portion control scale measures 8.89" x 6.06" x 1.65".
