Light, accurate, easy to operate and read
Here is what you need to know about this scale. First and foremost, from my tests (I used my manual scale to compare as you can see in the picture), its incredibly accurate, which really is the most important thing when baking. Aside from this, it looks great, is lightweight, has a nice large lit clear to read screen, nice measurement options and batteries are included!

Very useful and looks good too
When I opened the box my first impression was WOW!. The appearance is most attractive. Functionally is is more than I could ask for in a kitchen and general purpose scale. The unit multiple weight standards and remembers the last setting you use. I verified accuracy with lab grade 20 and 50 Gram calibration weights and it read dead on. The DKS10 is an excellent all around scale that is useful for many household weighing tasks from food recipe ingredients to postage and shipping.

Nice scale for the price - multiple units, high weight capacity
This scale is really handy to have around. I really like that you can switch between units easily as well as zero it out in case you want to use a bowl or something to weigh your food. This scale also has a larger capacity than many scales in this range. The glass surface makes it very easy to clean up if any food gets on it. The buttons are touch sensitive, which is nice. They are a little finicky sometimes though. In particular, sometimes when I'm trying to zero out the scale, I end up turning it off.

Does some things better, others not so much
Update 2: The seller reached out to me and offered a refund since I was not satisfied with the battery life of the scale. Their customer service is 5-stars for sure. I've added back a star for that, but I can't really give the scale five because even if the battery issues are unique to my scale, the cons in my original review still remain.
Update: Battery life is not great. I've had to replace them twice since I bought it in June 2017. You can see there's a low battery indicator in the display, but it doesn't seem to work. The scale will just start shutting off while you're trying to use it.
-Easy to read when large items like plates are on it
-Large surface area
-Buttons have no tactile feedback when they're pressed. You'll often think you've zeroed it or changed units, but you haven't
-Because the entire surface is the scale, touching it, moving it, or pressing a button causes the numbers to jump around
The Pros are the reason I bought this to replace my old scale, but the Cons are things the old scale didn't have. I guess the Pros outweigh the Cons in terms of usability. They're just annoyances.

Great for macros
This thing is really great. The minimalist layout makes it really easy to use, and it's easy on the eyes. It's about as intuitive as it possibly could be to use and it is solid in the hands. The only issue I've had is that, sometimes, I have to find a way to balance things in a way that won't cover the numbers when weighing something. But I just get around this by putting something like a cup on the scale, then zeroing out the weight, then putting the plate on top of the cup.
All in all, I'm very pleased.

Sleek, slim, accurate.
I have a digital scale I bought about 10 years ago but it's bulky and takes up counter space I'm already short of and would take up cabinet space if I tried to store it when I didn't need it. This beauty solves all of my problems. Because it is so thin I can slide it into a cabinet without taking up much space. To check its accuracy I weighed a number of items (in grams) on both scales and the results were identical. The smooth top is easy to keep clean. My only problem now is what to do with the old scale. Give it away, I guess.

Very nice scale. Was worried it was broken on delivery ...
Very nice scale. Was worried it was broken on delivery as the enclosed 3 3-A batteries did not power this unit on. I used my own Dura-Cells and they worked perfectly. I like the back lit screen as it makes seeing the numbers easy. I have another scale, but no back lit and sometimes it'shard to see the figures. So this scale is perfect for my needs. Happy I purchased it.

Automatic shutoff may hinder usefulness.
This is a nice scale and could be better. I have two issues, one easily solved, and the other not so easy.
First the not so easy to solve issue. This scale automatic shutoff is a pain. If you are slowly adding weight, the scale can automatically shutoff. To get around this issue I have found that if I press on the scale periodically (within the around 60 second timeout period) the scale stays powered on. It would be better if the automatic shutoff were an option and not a predefined behavior. Sure, I have a workaround, the issue is that you have to remember to do this and it really is a hack.
The other thing I have experienced is that the supplied batteries died quickly. As I have now replaced the batteries, I do not see the "half full battery status" indicator on the screen anymore. This indicator was present on the screen from day one of owning the scale. Easily solved, though I would have expected the supplied batteries to last, especially as they are not as common as AA or AAA batteries that most houses have extras of around the house.

Must have for every kitchen
This is exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We had another digital scale but it was much smaller. This provides us with the ability to weight out items in a larger bowl which is a must for a large family! The design is modern and sleek. The screen is easy to read and the controls for lbs,kg,oz etc are extremely easy to understand.

The perfect scale, does exactly what you would want plus ...
The perfect scale, does exactly what you would want plus a little more. Its easy to use, with little set up. Fine multiple weights at several different units without having to redo the initial weight. The screen its perfectly lit for visibility at any angle. Works well with hot liquids in a bowl. Zero(ing) containers is also very easy. The buttons are glass and very responsive. And the weights are very precise. It even remembers the last unit you measured. All in all this is a great addition to my kitchen at a very affordable price.
