Awesome Accurate Scale Very Useful in Weight loss efforts and tracking meals
I have been trying to cut for a long time, I was overweight and needing to shed some extra pounds. I was actually 80 pounds overweight. I was using myfitness pal but if you use any app such as this you'll know the serving sizes are never accurate and you cannot be sure that you are getting the correct amount of calories. So I purchased this scale to help me dial in my calorie intake much further. Its 100% on point. As this scale helped me to identify areas in my diet where I was getting extra 400-600 calories from miscalculating the food based on the nutrition label. I have since then lost a total of 60lbs and i only have a few pounds left to lose thanks to this scale I can see my weight loss dreams come true.

A must have when watching your diet
I started a new weight loss program a few weeks ago that requires a certain amount of protein and veggies each day, and so far, this little scale has really helped me stay on track. It comes with a detached plastic bowl, which is very convenient and easy to wash. The scale itself is a good size as it's large enough to fit a variety of foods and small enough that it doesn't take up too much counter space. It reads in both ounces and in grams, which appear accurate. My only critique though is that the switch to change it from ounces to grams (and vice versa) is on the bottom, which can be inconvenient. This function would be much better if located on the top with the other buttons. Overall though this is a good inexpensive choice.

I get an accurate measurement every single time
This kitchen scale is great for measuring many things and not only in the kitchen. It can be used to measure other things around the home. We have used it to measure fresh vegetables like Asian melons, cucumbers, bell peppers, and such from our small garden. You are limited only by your imagination and creativity.
It can be used to measure with or without the bowl. There are often items that I measure simply by placing them on top of the scale. I get an accurate measurement every single time.
The scale is meant for those who need to measure foods for a special diet. It is also for those trying a new recipe and they want to get an accurate measurement. It is good for anyone not on a diet but want to control their food portions in order to eat healthier.
This scale is meant for you if you want to get an accurate measurement of your food portions.
Personally, I would recommend this scale. I find it worth the price and it is very easy to use.

It does what most folks need at a reasonabale price.
This scale does the job for us so far. We haven't tried to compare accuracy but it appears good. The bowl is handy and one reason we selected it (but for us it and the scale could be a bit bigger ...yet others will consider the small footprint a positive attribute... which it is also...it can't be both). The TAR/reset to zero feature works well and IMO a requirement. It's attractive enough for a kitchen tool...we bought a black one but maybe wish we bought a different color (this is a 'nit' and unimportant BTW and not included in our evaluation).
One thing we don't like is how the bowl sits/stores on the "platter" (where you set the item to be weighed) on/with the base. It is too easily tipped or knocked off the base...BOTH in use and in storage. It could/should set down/'lock' a bit more stably. As is, if bumped while in use or reached for when stored on a high shelf (where we would store it) the top/bowl get rambunctious and can fall While in use it can mean spills. Using another bowl or container to weigh items is similar. The platter is small, flat, shiny/smooth without a raised edge or grainy surface.
Related to this, the way the platter 'locks' onto the base using a twist lock motion isn't as easy/secure/stable as it could easily be either. Again fairly minor but it could/should be better.
So, in use we are careful...more than we needed to be in our recently broken big ol' old Braun scale of blessed memory, which was much more $$. We will probably keep the Weighmax box to store it in... in an out of the way place...not so good if you want to 'display' it in some way. For us this is a minor annoyance but tightening up the attachment and size/surface of the weighing surface would be a nice improvement.
Overall it's a good enough tool that does most jobs required of it well and at a reasonable price. Most folks should enjoy it. For us it will always be 'almost' really nice too...but heck, it IS only a scale :-)

A nice accurate scale for the price. This scale is very similar to any other brand in this price range. The price has no affect on the performance and accuracy of the scale. I purchased the scale so I could get accurate information of the food portions I eat. I'm not overweight ....well just by 6 pounds. I received a FitBit fitness watch as a gift and wanted to be able to enter precise size portions into the FitBit software.
The major parts of the scale is made of a cheaper plastic material, the same goes for the clear bowl it comes with. I expect through future use, the bowl will begin to show scratches and probably lose the extremely clear look of glass. None of this will affect the purpose of the sac ale itself.

Light-weight, and easy to transport
I have used this scale to weigh powder for supplements. Like sugar and creatine among other supplements.
It comes with a scale and a plastic bowl with a lip so you can pour liquids or powders, which is a nice addition to an already great scale.
It's such great size that I keep it in my backpack. You will never know when you need to use it! I take it to school with me and have used it for various situations.
The plastic bowl has circular ridges so it places evenly on top of the scale, so it "locks in" which is nice when you need exact measurements that require the bowl to be centered.

which I loved but unfortunately melted by leaving it on a hot ...
Compared to my previous kitchen scale, which I loved but unfortunately melted by leaving it on a hot burner, this one is hard to use. Display not well lit and very difficult to read. I can't be sure if the tiny lettering indicating measurement unit says LB or KG. Needs a magnifying glass, preferably one with a built-in flashlight! The bowl overhangs the display, further blocking readability. I can weight the same thing twice and get two wildly different readings. NOT recommended. Guess you get what you pay for.....

Nice, easy to use, kitchen and other-purpose scale.
Really nice, easy to use kitchen (or whatever) scale. (I also use it for shipping and for yarn--if you don't understand that, I know you are not a knitter.) I gave four stars instead of five for only two reasons: (1) in order to switch between oz. and grams, you need to turn the scale over and flip a switch on the bottom. I use both types of measure for various reasons, so this is a minor inconvenience. (2) The instructions have obviously been translated from another language by someone who does not really speak English. They are absolutely incomprehensible. Fortunately, this is not my first digital scale, and they aren't that "deep."
Oh! And I love the bowl! You can use anything you want on it, but the bowl is so nice and handy. And it weighs up to 10 pounds, so you aren't limited to single servings.

Perfect Little kitchen scale
I needed a scale in my kitchen for weighing out different spices and was looking for something that wasn't going to take up a lot of space. The reviews were really good so I figured I would give it a try especially since the price was pretty decent compared to other ones for sale. I was really impressed by the quality of the scale itself though it does have a plastic bowl that comes with it you can take that off and put any type of container on top that you wish and just zero the scale out. so far I have had no issues with it and it has been very accurate for me. Great by if you're looking to have a scale for occasional use in the kitchen

Weighmax Electronic Kitchen Scale
I love this scale! I use it for simple measurement in calorie counting and searched BTA-MALL for quite a while before I purchased it. I purchased the smaller one and the size has been great for my calorie counting purposes. I honestly don't use the accompanying bowl much because you can just put your own bowl/plate/container on the scale and tare it prior to measuring. The fact that you can easily flip the switch on the bottom of the scale between ounces and grams is also fantastic. The battery has been completely fine so far with one month of regular usage. It also looks decent enough that I don't mind leaving it out on my counter for extended periods of time. Overall, I am very pleased with this product so far and am planning to buy another to leave at my parents house for when I visit them.
