Simple and user friendly, our mechanical is highlighted by a 5″ dial with bold numbers. The dial highlights measurements up to 11 lbs and 5 kg, with tick marks every 1 oz or 50 grams. The 7 cup weighing bowl will be able to contain may food types and also is top rack dishwasher safe. Calibrate the scale by turning the knob under the platform. This scale also fits in the bowl for mess free storage.
