Great Gift Idea for the cook in the family or someone who does a lot of mailing!
For the past few years I have been using a cheap plastic scale I purchased. It has served its purpose - that's about all I can say good about it. It has a toggle in the back that can easily get hit and your weight could be off. While I've only used it for food, not mailing, I can see the problem that this might cause.
There is always a more expensive option - a digital scale that gives a more accurate read out on demand. It takes the guess work out of weighing items. Ozeri sent me their digital kitchen scale to try and review.
When the scale first got here I was surprised at how small and light the unit is. I think it's even lighter than the cheap (non-digital) version I already had. I expected the scale to require power, but it runs on just 2 AAA batteries. It was extremely easy to put together and use once I had the batteries in. One button is a quick on and off and the other allows you to switch the weight to pounds (lbs), kilograms, grams, and ounces. It even has a 3 minute power save mode so you wont run your batteries down while you're working.
The digital scale be used to portion food, measure items for recipes (ever have one that asked for exact ounces of an ingredient) or even used to give you mailing rates. Ozeri even includes a mailing rate chart so you would know just how much it would cost to send your letter or package. The scale even can weigh things up to 12 lbs!
