The scale is beautiful, easy to read, and a dream to clean. It has the advantage of a much lower price tag and a much smaller footprint than the My Weigh. This is a great company, and this is the first of their products that has disappointed me. The original scale I received was defective, or so it seemed, and they were nice enough to replace it. The replacement works far better, but still has the same glitches-- only less dramatically. The main problem for me is that the scale fluctuates while what is being weighed just sits there. It just goes up and down a few grams (the one they replaced went up and down in tens of grams), and is never the weight that was originally displayed by the time I remove it. I've just accepted that it is not going to be that accurate, and maybe that's the problem with a digital scale. My old Salton gave up the ghost after 25+ years, but I never had an issue with it. I'm not a professional baker, and what I make for my family comes out fine, so I guess that, in the long run, it's adequate. I really don't know how many stars to give it, but at least three.
