Great for portion control! OXO's user-friendly Food Scale with Pull-Out Display is perfect for weighing all ingredients. Weigh items directly on the platform, on a plate or in a bowl, and pull the display away from the base to prevent shadowing from large plates and bowls. Accurately measure ingredients when cooking and baking or stick to a diet by weighing portions. A weight indicator shows the capacity left on the scale before maximum capacity is reached. Press the zero button to offset the weight of a container or to set the weight back to zero so you can add additional ingredients. The display features large, easy-to-read numbers which measure in 1/8 oz. (imperial) and 1 g. (metric) increments. The scale's thin profile allows for easy storage. The scale has a 5 lb. capacity and 2 AAA batteries are included. Platform can be removed and washed by hand (not dishwasher safe).
