Can the time out feature be turned off?

This is a major problem for me as well, and i haven’t been able to prevent this. I’m using it for a pour over coffee maker, and it will time out in the middle of the two-minute process of pouring water over the grounds. The whole point of the scale is to get the perfect 25 grams of grounds to 400 grams of water ratio, and when the scale times out in the middle, it’s pretty worthless. I would not buy again.

Does this weigh accurately in grams? Looking for a scale that is accurate for baking so mostly for flour, water and salt measurements.

Not exactly. It can move up or down by one gram. Ive had to weigh the same thing twice to get a more stable reading. It doesn’t read .5 of grams, it will just round off to the nearest gram… Kinda. Not accurate to the .5g. Ill be returning this as i need at least to .5 of a gram accuracy.

How do you keep the weight in the screen even if you have to remove the item from the scale in order to see the weight?

According to the description of the tare function, if you place your item on the scale and press the tare button. The display will read 0. Now remove the item. The display will read a negative number equal in magnitude to the item you removed. E.g if the item weighs 500g, then after using the the tare function and removing the item, it will read -500 grams. I don’t own this (yet), so can’t verify, but according to their description, this should work. If you also need to tare a container that blocks view of the display, then you’ll have to first weight the container this way, then weigh it with the contents, and subtract the weight of the container in your head, or on paper. I don’t own the device (yet), so have not actually tried this.

Can the time out feature be turned off?

Two no’s and one yes!
At least tell us how to turn the time-out feature off!

Does it measure in ml?

Sort of. One of the ‘units’ menu items is ml, but since this is a weigh scale, it is weighing grams and assuming that you are measuring water which weighs 1g per ml. This will be fairly close for any liquid close to water in density. For other fluids there will be some error, e.g. A given volume of 86 proof scotch will read 6% low, cooking oil will read 7% low, milk will read 3% high, and maple syrup will read 27% high. By the way, i am really happy with this scale.

I haven’t received my refund ???? It shows refund issued but no i haven’t got it???

Please, give it couple of days.

Does it have a timer?

It does not have a timer

Are the numbers visible if you put a dinner plate on the scale, or are they obscured?

Hi, i have no trouble seeing the digits while there’s a plat on. If it is a big plate i look under it. There are scales that you can pull out the digit section in order to see them but it’s triple the price at least.

Do you have a model without batteries? I don’t enjoy battery powered machinery. Thank you.

Sorry, it has batteries.

Can the amazon basics stainless steel digital kitchen scale be hung up?

It does not come with the ability to hang. You’d have to purchase some sort of stick on adaptor to hang it. Even then it has weight to it, so i don’t think i’d trust that either. Spike

Can i get a replacement for a scale that stopped working two months after purchase?

We tried to do a return, not an exchange. The just refunded.

Info on capacity

I don’t know that i have fully tested the capacity but whatever did not fit on the scale i just put a bowl on top zeroed it out and then filled up what i needed and it worked just fine i hope my answer helps you

Will it measure in strictly ounces? For example, would it read 18 ounces without rolling over to 1 lb, 2 ounces??

The unit measurement for ounces is lb:oz. So 18 ounces would read as 1lb 2 ounces (1: 02).

My scale used to work but now it only shows 0 and no weight, no matter what i push. I have lost the manual, what do i do?

Check source, replace battery– beyond that i fear it died, cheap enough though buy another is only other option– sorry

Can i put a bowl on it, zero it, then add what i’d like it to measure?

For things like that i just weight the bowl and subtract.

I understand that the gauges measure the pressure , but to use the scale for measuring the amount of 134a going into the hvac system is the answer i n

R600a in some cases has to be weighed in by grams.

For people who bought this in 2021: have they fixed the flaw where it shuts off despite being in the middle of actively weighing things?

Still will shut off during weighing. Wonder if there is a setup option that adjusts this?

Quien sabe cuál es error c15?

Realmente no me gusto este producto, tuve una y se dañó a los meses de ser comprada, es desechable. Lo mejor es botarla.

Is there a light on weight scale when turned on? Hard to read w/o a light.

There’s not a light but the display is easy to read without it. I haven’t had any issues.

How precise is the scale?

Not sure how precise you need it to be. I use mine for weighing packages to calculate shipping charges. So far i’ve matched what the post office weighed the package as so i’d say pretty precise.

Results are perfect

As it happens, i already had a scale i’ve been using for many years. I found i needed a 2nd one. I opted to try this one even though a fair # of people had pictures claiming the scale was inaccurate.

The problem is that they are weighing filled cans, not the contents. The weight specified on a package represents the packaged weight (‘net weight’) and does not include the package such as the can or jar.

As you can see from the pictures i posted, i weighed first a cup (pics 1 & 2) and in the 2nd a bow/cup/storage container (pics 3 & 4). The results are the same. (note the 1 gram difference in the last 2 pictures is because my cat jumped up on the counter and bumped everything just as i shot the picture. I didn’t think it was worth taking another picture for just 1 gram.)

when testing the scale, start with an empty container and tare the weight. In other words, reset the scale to zero with the bowl on it. (see the 5th pic.) you can accomplish by 2 different ways:
(1) with the scale turned off, set the container on the scale and then turn it on. It will be set to zero with the bowl on top not being included.
(2) after the scale is on, set the bowl (or other container) on top of the scale and press the ‘tare’ button once (it’s the secondary function of the on/off button on the right)

then add the contents of the container and compare it with the net weight on the container (6th pic; ignore scale). Note, that you will have to carefully scrape out every little bit in order to get an accurate result. (7th pic). The contents stated on the can of cat food and the amount i weighed are identical.

Note: you may get some discrepancies because it’s usually impossible to get each and every bit out of the container. I had the help of a small spatula to aid with removing all the contents. But even so, don’t be surprised if you have about 10-20 g difference from the net weight.

The only true method for determining if a scale is truly accurate is to compare it to another scale and weigh the exact same items.

If you bake – you need this !

I am an avid amateur baker – pie, cake, cookies, you name it, i’ll try it; but bread is my passion.
Whenever i find a new bread recipe, the first thing i do is try a half or 1/3 batch to “get the feel of it” but that means doing math to get those reduced volumes. And just because i can do the math doesn’t mean i like to do the math! Enter baking by weight in grams & a digital scale – game changer! So much easier to divide whole numbers vs trying to find just how much 1/6 of a cup is. I still use my measuring cups for volume, but my digital scale has become indispensable for baking.

Basic kitchen scale

The screen is easy to read adjustable to metric or imperial measurements. The platform is big enough for even large measuring cups and zeroes out with the touch of a button to subtract the weight of the cup.
It is what amazon claims a basic scale that performs simply and easily at a modest price.

All around solid

I have used it to measure a wide variety of solids and liquids. I love it. It works great, the batteries seem to last quite a while even with regular use, i have no complaints. The accuracy of the scale is great for most everyday uses.

Easy to use

Worked instantly out of the box. Has different measure of weights. Click the on button, place item on and instant measurement. So easy to use. Value is unbelievable.

Smart scale.

I was surprised at the size as it was larger than expected. I’m an archer & i am using it to weigh my arrows after they are fully constructed to insure they are within tolerance & of the same weight. Accuracy is a must in archery!

Have always wanted a scale for the kitchen. Did a lot of canning this summer and one recipe ask for pounds of vegetable so went to amazon and ordered this. Delivered in two days.

Sleek, simple, affordable,

I got this when i was preparing for bariatric surgery as i was needing a way to measure and track nutrient intake. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. It is a good size, easy to use, accurate, and can switch between most common units.

I bought this about two weeks ago to help keep track of food. It has worked great! It has so many different conversions, and it does the job for a decent price!

May not be accurate on smaller weights.

I make to strict recipes and its important to the accuracy of process to have exact gram measurements. I only noticed though when i had my other simple scale on at the same time as a comparison that the amazon scale (at least my one) was not (immediately) responsive, or accurate and sometimes didn’t tare easily. So i would have 3 g of material weighed in the accurate scale and the amazon scale would still be reading zero for same amounts. This is significant divergence in accuracy and response and especially in the relative small amounts. Then it sometimes would begin to align. So my scale is inconsistent. I missed the return window as i had it stored until i needed it. I thought it was a great price. Other thing is its good it gives lb and oz but would like also a digital lbs reading too. Comes with batteries, good price just watch it!

Good for while gram measurements

I tried this for single dosing coffee beans in a grinder for espresso, but the measurement wasn’t quite the precision i wanted to make consistent shots each time, so i got a 0.1g scale instead.

But for anything that i don’t need 0.1g accuracy, this should be fine. Plus i got it open box for under $5, so it’s a great cheap spare.

Solid product

Very reliable product and is fantastic at measuring both solids and liquids with fairly accurate readings across the board. My only critic is it is not very good at picking up on lighter items such as yeast or salt; if you are wanting to weigh something that does not have much mass it can be difficult to get readings on anything under 5oz

4Expert Score
Needs a light

I bought one before this that had a light which made it easier to read the numbers for the same price as this one, so i feel if it doesn’t have the light then the price should reflect that. Not to mention that the other one as well has a higher weight capacity..

Standard scale

Standard kitchen scale. Its been spot on every time i’ve used it. Recently used it for baking measurements, got it covered in flour, melting butter and who knows what else. Cleaned off super easy and still works great.

4Expert Score
Ok in a pinch

This scale is ok for the price. However the final weight warbles between 2-3 numbers without anything other than what’s being weighed is touching the scale. This makes knowing what the final final weight actually is.
It’s also a bit finicky when switching between the measurements options and also has to be completely flat on a hard surface to even turn on. Any miniscule anything under the scale or barely uneven and it won’t turn on.
