Protective Gunk Shield
Three AA Batteries
This feature does away the usual math required in adding just the right amount of ingredients, in proportion to the main ingredient (flour, for instance) of a recipe. This feature allows you to easily resize recipes based on percentage and makes mixing up batters and dough a piece of cake.
The KD kitchen scale 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 8000 as a candle making or soap making scale.
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 8000 to turn off automatically, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.
This baker 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.
The tare button on the front of this digital bpf 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.
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 ya use this scale as a postal scale and are having trouble seeing the weight display because of a big box.
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.
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-8000 turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.
If ya have a problem with this digital scale, just send it to My Weigh's warranty center in Phoenix, Arizona. They'll fix it or replace it, and send it on its way back to ya within two working days.
