Display & Automatic Shutoff

The display is normal sized clear black numbers on the usual gray background.  A few people find the automatic  shut off closes the display down a bit too fast once they have finished weighing or between their weighing of ingredients. Ways around this if you have any issues is to make sure you are using lightweight bowls rather than metal.

Are They Easy to Use?

They are really easy to use.  You simply pop what you want to weigh on the scale. (if using the tare put the empty bowl on first to zero the scales).  Then add your ingredients. You can also lock your ingredients amounts in if you want to. This way you know exactly how much of each ingredient you used and it is locked until you don’t need it.

Yes, there is a tare function so that you can add ingredients as you go.  It is better to use lightweight or plastic bowls for this to be sure of accuracy.
