Net And Gross Weighing This table top digital scale has a very handy feature that lets ya weigh and item, set the scale back to zero, then weigh another item. After ya weigh what ya need to, hit the NW/GW button to see the total weight of everything ya put on the scale. This sure is useful for mixing up recipes!
Auto-Off Feature If ya have ever had the batteries in something run out because you forgot to turn it off, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. The i5000 will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity.
Bright Backlit Display When you're weighing with high precision scales like this one, even the tiniest breeze can interfere with weight readings. This My Weigh scale comes with a durable, glass windscreen to keep out those pesky drafts. Oh, and don't worry, this scale makes it easy to put your items on, or take them off, the platform. The top and sides slide all the way back.
Does This Thing Count? You bet it does! All ya need to do is weigh a sample amount of pieces, so the scale can know how much each piece weighs, then start counting. You'll be finished in no time.
Tare Feature The tare button on the front of this digital food scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the item you're adding. This sure is useful when ya want to use the included weighing bowl.

This is my 2nd one, i had gotten many years of service from the last one. This newer one is even better, it has a larger display and brighter, easier to read. Luv it!!Reviewed by: wanda from usa on (3/29/2015)
Scale is easy o use and seems accurate. At this price point, one would think is would have a higher resolution (e.g. 1/10 of a gram). it does not. For others considering a scale for cooking baking, and want real accuracy, seek one that can measure in 1/10 of a gram increments. this one does not.Reviewed by: Todd from Columbus on (11/12/2012)
I like this scale for the most part, but there are a couple "features" that I'm not wild about. First of all, the timeout function turns the scale off automatically, which I appreciate because it helps save the batteries. However, it is irritating that the weight on the display resets to zero when I turn the scale back on after a timeout. It would be really helpful if the weight were held in the scale's memory when the scale turns off. I frequently get interrupted by my children in the middle of measuring an ingredient, and it's a real hassle to lose count after getting called away for a couple minutes. The other mildly irritating "feature" is that the scale can't remember that I measure in ounces, not grams. Whenever I turn the scale on, I need to hit the button on the far right to get it to the correct unit of measure...and then when the scale turns off after 2 minutes of inactivity (as above), I not only lose the weight I've built up on the scale, but also have to reset the UoM. Irritating enough that I'm considering switching my recipes over to metric. FWIW, my old scale held both of these things--the weight and UoM--in memory when it turned off. Still, I'm moderately happy with this scale. The precision is better than the last scale I had, so that's an improvement. It's also easy to clean, and the count feature is pretty cool, although I don't know how often I will actually use it. On the downside, the display isn't really that easy to read--a big bowl overshadows it. Also, the included plastic bowl is pretty flimsy, but I didn't buy this scale for its bowl.Reviewed by: Thayer from Whitewater, WI on (8/28/2012)
the scale is what i expected. The bowl is far too flimsy, very disappointing promptly shipped and well packagedReviewed by: chuck gaskill from rancho santa fe on (4/15/2012)
I've used a My Weigh i5000 balance for several years, primarily in the kitchen for weighing flour for bread making, but also for counting pieces for mailing. The scale is fast, accurate, and consistent.Reviewed by: Dave from Colorado on (1/27/2012)
This one is a gift for my mother who has seen me using mine and wanted one for herself. It is very precise. Repeated measurements always give the same value (to the gram). I never use the bowl that comes with it. I usually just use the KitchenAid mixing bowl. I like annotate my favorite recipes (which use volumes) with the weights to use, and I don't get any measuring cups dirty. The only annoyance is that the auto shutoff is a little quick.Reviewed by: Ian from Baltimore on (12/24/2011)
Questions and Answers
A: Hi there Sandy,
The i5000 does weigh in grams, however the lowest resolution it offers is 1 gram. The scale will not be able to display anything lower than 1 gram.
