Protective "Gunk" Shield The KD comes with a removable gunk shield to protect the display and keys from any concoction you might be mixing up. This is perfect if ya plan to use the 7000 as a candle making or soap making scale.
Programmable Auto-Off Feature If you've ever had your scale turn off on ya in the middle of important measurements, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. You can program the 7000 to turn off automatically, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.
Bright Backlit Display This table top kitchen scale has a fancy backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. Not only that! This digital scale's display will tell ya if it's holding a weight, if ya pressed the tare button, and the unit you're weighing with.
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 if ya want to use a separate bowl for mixing up your ingredients.
Hold Feature This feature lets ya remove weight from the scale and keep the weight reading on the display. This sure comes in handy if ya need to remove your item from the scale, or if you're having trouble seeing the weight display.
Stainless Steel Platform This digital food scale has an easy to clean, stainless steel weighing platform. The good thing about stainless steel is, unlike gold or silver, it doesn't scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing.
It Remembers The Last Unit Ya Used If your application needs weights in the same unit of measurement, (like ounces for instance), it can be a real pain if your scale always turns on ready to weigh in grams. It's a good thing the KD 7000 turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.
30 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! If ya have a problem with this scale, just send it to MyWeigh's warranty center in Phoenix, Arizona. They'll fix or replace your scale and send it on its way back to ya within a week of receiving it. You should expect your replacement to arrive in about two to three weeks from the day you send the original off. Keep in mind that sometimes MyWeigh runs out of stock, which can cause a delay in the warranty replacement process.

This scale was highly recommended for soap making by almost everyone. Although I do have a kitchen scale, I wanted one dedicated to this new craft. This scale perfect for it! It's larger than I expected but that's a good thing. I can weigh everything in one big pot, just clear it between each, or use different containers for each...whatever works best at the time. The shield over the front is a bit unwieldy but easy to get used to. Or it can be removed completely and the supplied control covers used. So far I've found the scale to be very accurate. I would urge anyone making soap to add this one to your equipment list!Reviewed by: D. Hinton from Texas on (10/16/2015)
The first one I received was DOA.The second scale works well and is nice appearing. The folks at Old Will Knott Scales service were awesome. Two days after my call I had a replacement scale. Relationships are established when things go wrong. Well OWKS immediately solved the problem and we now have a great relationship!Reviewed by: Kevin from Mount Dora, FL on (9/18/2015)
As a soaper, this scale is everything! I can't believe I got by for so long without it. Treat yourself and your hobby or business to this small wonder.Reviewed by: Monica from Houston, TX on (7/16/2015)
Had my new scale for about a month. Please with the product thus far. Had a few issues where it did not give me the same weight of the same item numerous times to check accuracy...after a few minutes of being plugged in, all is now normal.Reviewed by: Doublegranch from Arizona on (3/3/2015)
Nice scale, have ordered two!Reviewed by: Eleanor Crumpton from Springdale on (12/2/2014)
I bought this scale because I wanted to upgrade and I heard so many good things about it from other soap makers in my online groups. I like it so much that I'll be buying another one to give my son, who is in culinary school. I also purchased the adapter because I was tired of replacing batteries in my old scale.Reviewed by: Linda from East TN on (11/2/2014)
Great service, superb quality and amazing pricesReviewed by: Lisa P. from Danvers MA on (8/19/2014)
great scale. i use it for making hand crafted lotions, creams, lip balms, etc. just what i needed. and great customer service. thanks.Reviewed by: on from san francisco, ca on (8/7/2014)
I had looked at and dreamed about this scale for years, and I finally own it! What's great about it? The multiple weighing modes are perfect for all my needs. The a/c adapter option ensures I won't have to worry about batteries dying in the middle of a batch of soap, lotion or whatever. The large weighing platform leaves me plenty of space to work with even my largest measuring cups. The hold button is fabulous for when I run out of something mid-measure (and have to bust into another jug, bottle, etc.) or when I'm weighing packages for shipment. My only complaint about this scale is, it doesn't measure a gram from zero. In other words, I was making a small batch of a product and needed a gram of an ingredient. It was impossible to do. Customer service was great, and we discovered it's a personality quirk of the scale. To get around it, place your measuring container on the scale, but don't tare it before adding your ingredient.Reviewed by: Sara Nesbitt from Burgaw, NC on (8/5/2014)
I love the scale. I love the price. The customer service was excellent, and prompt. The packaging was very earth friendly too. Thank you so much!Reviewed by: Karen from Corydon, Iowa on (8/3/2014)
This scale is a workhorse! I use it in my Ginger's Garden soap making business and it performs like a champ! I was able to find instructions on how to disable the auto-off feature, since I make bigger batches and need to tare in between. This is my second KD7000 as I have dedicated the first one to making other skin and body care products. I have the AC adapter, so I don't have to worry about batteries. I'm giving this scale 5 stars!Reviewed by: Irena from Palm Springs, CA on (7/24/2014)
This is a good little scale for the money. Not sure I would reorder it for making soap though. I was using a very pricey scale (which finally died after 14 years) that measured to .000 for ounces and was extremely accurate. This one only measures to .00 for ounces and the second number skips from .00 to .05 etc. That's such a small amount, it's insignificant for making soap so I can live with it. Not sure I'll be able to use this scale for making lotions etc. which require exact measuring and the gram resolution is only to .0. The only other thing I don't like is that it cuts off after 2 minutes, even when plugged into an electrical outlet. The manual gives instructions for programming the scale to stay on for 5 minutes but I can't get that to work. Other than that, it's a very nice scale -- especially for the money.Reviewed by: Jan from Clayton, Georgia on (7/3/2014)
I really like this set of scales for weighing out my oils and such for making soap. I can weihg more at a time with this set than I could with the set I purchased from another company. I like the panel protector, just wipe it off. I really like the adapter, no more batteries to worry about going out in the middle of weighing. To sum it up, I love my new scales.Reviewed by: christine bozeman from Linden, TN on (3/26/2014)
I want to say how much I love this new scale. I had two other scales I purchased locally that worked okay, but didn't offer the features that this one does. I also have to say how awesome their customer service is. The original scale I received was not weighing properly so I called customer service. They were extremely helpful and had a new scale to me within a week. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone needing a quality scale.Reviewed by: Sue Shaffer from Virginia Beach, VA on (3/23/2014)
I use my scales to weigh oils and such for making soap. I have previously bought 2 cheap scales from our local walmart in the past year. They were cheaply made and could not hold up to eery day use. My KD7000 scale is perfect! I love it!Reviewed by: DeeDee Soaper from Pollok Texas on (3/4/2014)
Searched for a home scale to use in my baking hobby. The KD-7000 (on sale from Old Will Knott Scales) seemed to fit the bill for weight limits, functions, and budget. It was promptly shipped and was exactly as described. 100% satisfied customer!Reviewed by: Rich Howard from Jenks, OK on (2/10/2014)
I got this scale for soap making. It's a great scale. Measures in oz., grams, lbs. I've used it for a few months now; compact, light, sturdy, accurate, easy to use & store and I love it. I would order another one if I needed 2. But, what I found to be the most impressive was the AMAZING customer service of this company. In today's profit-1st-people-2nd-corp. world finding a company that still has that home-town integrity, is genuinely friendly and cares about their customer's satisfaction 1st is a rarity anymore. Thank you for the great scale but more than that, for going above & beyond and actually caring about customer satisfaction. I couldn't be happier with my purchase or my shopping experience. Will definitely be back!Reviewed by: Terri from FL on (1/2/2014)
So far I love my new scale. I like the size of the platform - you can put a container on it and still see the weight screen. And,the cover over the buttons, such a good idea!Reviewed by: Linda Brittain from Bee County, Tx on (11/12/2013)
We use these scales on a production line for clay hot/cold packs. Over the course of a year they take abuse - nearly a million packs get plopped down on them to check weigh our product. These scales consistently stay calibrated for over a year, before regrettably, we have to replace them. We always buy another set and they still work great!Reviewed by: Rob from Springfield, Illinois on (10/29/2013)
An extremely accurate precision instrumentReviewed by: Terry L Howes from Sweet Home, Oregon on (10/22/2013)
This scale is SO much fun! I love using it. It's also very stylish. I started the latest edition of the DASH diet, "The DASH Diet, Weight Loss Solution" and bought this scale to help me. It is helping me succeed. It is so easy and I absolutely love the "tare" function.Reviewed by: ROBIN from HUNTSVILLE TX on (9/22/2013)
I had set up my new balance, and my husband, a research engineer, came over and looked at it and asked, "What brand is it?" I said, I don't know, but it does what I want it to do. He said, "I would have bought Ohaus." At that point, I went to my computer and found that something similar cost from $450 to $1600!! I have used scientific instruments during my science teaching career, and I am thoroughly pleased with the ease of use and accuracy of this model, and I especially love the price since it came out of my pocketbook!!! Just think how much money I saved!Reviewed by: Ellen Nelson from Athens, GA on (9/5/2013)
I had been looking for some scales that would be useful for home-brewing. After a short search, I found Old Will Knot. Not only are these scales what I was looking for, but the 30-year warranty is unheard of. I ordered a set, and the quality is very good and the features are very good as well. Looking forward to several years of service.Reviewed by: Thomas from Colorado on (8/21/2013)
This scale is wonderful...I cant say enough about it...very very pleased. You will not be sorry for buying this oneReviewed by: wlliam from nm on (8/12/2013)
Great service! Thanks Old Will Knott. I've had the scale for a few weeks and have used it daily in the kitchen. The only thing I would say is if you're looking for a more sensitive measurement below 1gram, this isn't the scale for you.Reviewed by: MJ from Milwaukee on (5/22/2013)
I use the scale to weigh out lead to put in my RC airplanes to balance them in addition to weigh out portions for her diet. I also use it to weigh the total weight of smaller RC airplanes. It has come in very handy and I like the two digit accuracy in the ounce mode. Easy and intuitive to use. The plastic weigh table (covered in metal) is easy to clean. I suggest that the company’s package designer incorporate a place in the insulation container to store the batteries and extra clear plastic key board covers when the scale is being stored. The plastic tab use on the batteries when shipped, be changed to an easy to see color rather than clear. I am glad I got it and if this is the type of scale you need, I fully and hardy recommend it.Reviewed by: Bob from Lowell, IN on (2/24/2013)
Hi there, I've had my "My Weigh KD-7000 Silver Multi-Purpose Digital Scale" for a couple of weeks now and I love it. It was exactly what I was looking for. The only issue I have is that the "protective gunk shield" broke when I tried to slide it out, following the instruction in the manual. I don't mind not having it but it was frustrating when it broke the first day I used the scale. ThanksReviewed by: Sally from Henniker on (11/27/2012)
I've owned one of these scales for several years. The 7000 gram range (over 15 pounds!) allows all sorts of direct measurements without using a collection of containers to measure piece-meal. I recently bought a second scale for our winter home. I use the scale exclusively in the kitchen, for making our daily coffee, making bread, and various tasks. I made up an ingredients spreadsheet listing weights of ingredients that are difficult or messy to measure, such as molasses, mustard, flour, peanut butter, oil, etc. With this list and this scale, baking or creating technical things with lots of ingredients such as sauces or sausage spices is very repeatable. Things comes out the same every time, and the scale allows for making minor ingredient changes: "a little to sweet?" use 20 grams less sweetener next time, etc. Over time, you can develop recipes that are constant and reliable. If the folks at Old Will Knott Scales sold used cars and washing machines, I would not hesitate to buy from them. They have a very personal approach to selling. Even though it is a '.com' store, it just feels right!Reviewed by: Paul Dietrich from B.C., Canada on (11/13/2012)
I don't know what makes a good scale but this seems to work as a scale ought to. One thing I like is the ounces don't switch to pounds + ounces once you pass 16Reviewed by: Jortge from Miami on (8/21/2012)
I spent an hour in a store trying to figure out if their digital scales did what I needed them to do. I came home, found the Old Will Knott Scales website, and in five minutes found exactly what I needed. The price was great, it arrived very quickly, and it is easy to use. I just started making soap as a hobby, and this scale is helping me turn out successful batches time after time.Reviewed by: Susan from California on (7/27/2012)
I rec'd my scale as stated! Just take it out of the box and start using. It will pay for itself over and over!!! This machine is easy to read and like that it has a back light. It has a coating to protect itself from all the goop that could fall onto it. I made a few batches of soap and it was really hard to get the correct measurements. Soooo glad I ordered this scale! Thanks for such a great machine!Reviewed by: Shirley Howard from NC on (7/20/2012)
Very bright and easy to read display. Scale is quick, simple, and accurate, and the price is right--what more could you ask for?Reviewed by: Randy from Montana on (4/18/2012)
The accuracy of this scale is generally +/- 1 gram from 0 to 1000 grams. Above this the accuracy is +/- 1 gram plus +/- 0.1%, which makes it parallel to laboratory grade, which is scarcely believable ... given the exceptionally low price. Many other scales do not make this grade and cost much more!Reviewed by: Andy Harbeck from California on (2/28/2012)
This is my third purchase of this item. Great performance and cheap enough to buy extras instead of moving around. I also gave one as a gift. Highly recommended.Reviewed by: Richard from Texas on (1/23/2012)
Thank You for a product that works great right out of the box! Easy to use and works just like the description on the Website! This is a company that you can trust! And I will use again!Reviewed by: Cathi from California on (12/19/2011)
Questions and Answers
A: Hey there Robyn,
For the sake of answering your question, lets look at ounces only. The 246.9 oz figure represents the maximum capacity the scale can handle. The 0.05 oz figure has to do with how the scale will display the weight. It will only display weights in multiples of 0.05 oz. (Ex. 1.05 oz to 1.10 oz to 1.15 oz to 1.20 oz)
A: Hey there Vito,
The AC adapter is $8.72, however the prices are subject to change. Here's a link if you're interested: http://www.oldwillknottscales.com/ac-power-adapter-for-kd-7000.html
A: Hey there Paul,
As long as you place the order before 2:00pm Mountain Time, the order will ship the same day. From Colorado, it will take approximately 4 business days to reach Oregon.
A: Hey there Prakash,
No, unfortunately the KD7000 is not NSF certified.
