To give you a background, I am a professional coffee and tea connoisseur. I need a accurate digital kitchen scale to weigh coffee and tea. I weigh in grams and usually weigh less then 30 grams at a time, so the scale must be accurate
I ordered this scale along with the Ozeri touch professional.
I was really excited when I got this one because I loved the design, the size was perfect, and the sensors are under the weighing platform, not under the scale.
The other scale I ordered (ozeri touch pro) had the sensors under the scale as the feet. This is supposed to be a newer technology but I don't like the concept.
So I did a side by side comparison with both scales using nickels (exactly 5 grams), and they both were a little weird. This one would sometimes give inaccurate results, for instance I would put 5 nickels (25 grams) and it would sometimes give 26, 27 or 24. I also tried zeroing it out or restarting to see if it would change the accuracy but I got the same results, I also tried using heaver quantities of nickels, but got the same results.
With the Ozeri Touch Professional, the results were a little bit more accurate but when you removed the item it would go crazy, for instance, when I removed the the nickels it would go to zero, then go down to -2, -3 with nothing on it. So I would zero it out and sometimes it would go negative again! Sometimes it does this and sometimes it does not. Annoying.
FYI, the Ozeri precision pro (this review) also has this issue sometime.
I don't think I just got a lemon, these scales are not accurate.
BUT, they are OK if you are weighing LARGE quantities.
I am really disappointed with both scales and the Ozeri company.
