Baker's Percentage Feature 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.
Protective "Gunk" Shield 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.
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 8000 to turn off automatically, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.
Bright Backlit Display This baker scale has a fancy backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. The digits are 0.75" tall. 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 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.
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 ya use this scale as a postal scale and are having trouble seeing the weight display because of a big box.
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-8000 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.

Very happy with this product. I had been using a battery operated scale for soap making but it kept turning off on me while I was weighing, not good. Did some research and found the KD8000 to be a top choice for soapers and bought the AC adapter as well. Scale looks good, not too big, not too small and never turns off unless I do the turning off. Love that. Haven't had to calibrate it either, every thing I've tested is spot on. I've been raving about it and spreading the news of this website. I am now a loyal customer of Old Will Knott Scales.Reviewed by: Irene from Liberty, Maine on (3/27/2016)
I recently purchased the version with the "Bakers Math" option after my old electronic scale died. This scale is great. It is everything I expected and more. Works wonderfully for all my baking and portion weighing needs. The cover makes keeping it clean and cleanup a breeze. The Bakers Math option makes scaling up my cake, pie, and tart recipes quick and simple when I change pan sizes. The scale arrived quickly (I chose standard shipping) and well packaged with no damage. The only downside was the included AA batteries were dead. No big deal though as I was not going to run it off the batteries anyway. I ordered the optional power adapter which works fine. The service, selection, and price from Old Will Knott Scales is impeccable and cannot be beat. I definitely will order from them again the next time I need a scale.Reviewed by: Aaron from Tallahassee on (11/28/2015)
I have 2 of the model below this one but my wife needed both permanently in another locations so I thought I'd grab the next model up with the baking percentages. Truth be told it's too confusing to understand how to use this % feature in the baking process but love the scale for all it does. Aside from my being too dumb to figure out that feature you may be smarter that me and figure it out and love this feature.Reviewed by: Mick from East Haddam, CT on (8/4/2015)
Had my first scale similar to this one for years and it finally gave up the ghost. Love this new one! I use it to weigh foster puppies, as well as the homemade dog food that we prepare. Accurate, easy to read, and very dependable!Reviewed by: Shirley Thompson from Plainfield, Indiana on (7/28/2015)
This scale is just what I was looking for to accurately measure ingredients for my Artisan breads and pastries. Finding a scale in this price range that measures in .001 kg is a real find. And the baker's percentage is a real bonus when resizing formulas. And yes, get the power adaptor. Old Will Knotts Scales is a great company and I've recommended them to all my baking friends.Reviewed by: Howard Leonard from CA on (1/31/2015)
The best scale I have ever had! Very dependable, right on the money! I use it in my shop when making soap, bath & body products, potpourri and candles. Excellent price for what all this product offers! Definitely get the AC adapter that goes with the scale. Great customer service and fast shipping.Reviewed by: Juanita from Tennessee on (1/15/2015)
I am so glad to have finally found a scale that is accurate and easy to use. This scale is worth its weight in gold. It might be a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Great product.Reviewed by: denise from florida on (11/22/2014)
Just a great accurate scale worth every cent and with a 30 year warranty what's not to love? Customer service is great too. I bought the KD 8000 for my wife who does a lot of baking and she loves it so much she uses it every single day. Perfect size for the kitchen counter too. I suggest that you also buy the adapter with it. If you are looking for a good quality scale for food and other stuff look no further. This is it!Reviewed by: Steven Santiago from Kissimmee, Florida on (11/2/2014)
I am very happy with the new scale. It gets used both in the shop and in the kitchen. This beats any scale I have owned in the past 40 years. I like being able to cancel time out and the fact that it runs off a wall wart. Great range and accuracy. Good price for all the bells and whistles.Reviewed by: Daniel Willard from Albuquerque, New Mexico on (9/16/2014)
This is a great scale and I highly recommend it. I've also been very impressed with the customer service and follow-up.Reviewed by: C Riley from Arizona on (9/8/2014)
After using and ruining 5 scales this year in my business I am THRILLED with this new purchase. The plastic guard over the controls makes a huge difference and it has a removable plate for easy cleaning and I purchased the AC adapter too! No more batteries! LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!Reviewed by: Bethany from TN on (5/9/2014)
Came with dead batteries. Good thing I bought the separate AC adaptor.Reviewed by: emily from oregon on (4/17/2014)
Very easy to use and durable. Never had any problems with it.Reviewed by: Shanna from Redding, CA on (6/30/2013)
We use the KD8000 scale to weigh gallon cans of ink. It works very well for us for all the reasons other people are mentioning. I expect to be ordering more of them.Reviewed by: Jim Williard from 2390 Greenfield Ave.,North Chicago IL. 60064 on (2/26/2013)
I make soap and body products. There are two features that make this scale terrific. The first one is that it measures to the hundreths of an ounce or gram and the other is the splash guard over the display. I am kind of messy! I also like the fact that is stays on for a few minutes so that I have time to scoop more oil into the pot and the scale does not turn off. This is a great scale and a good value.Reviewed by: Kathleen from St. Louis, MO on (12/6/2012)
This little scale is exactly what I was looking for. I am a soaper and the scale is perfect for that. I love that the weight stays on the scale, (it doen't turn off when I run into the other room to grab another bottle of oil. I also love that, when weighing ounces, it gives me the extra decimal place so my measurements are more accurate. The percent feature works great but the explaination of how to use it was not so great. My lotion bottles hold 9.2oz. That's 100%. The rest was easy. Well worth the money, and shipment was fast. I would highly reccommend this scale.Reviewed by: Janett from Rocky Ford, Co on (11/30/2012)
I used the scale for my first batch of soap and it seemed to work well. The plastic button guards that were included need to be taped to use properly, nice scale.Reviewed by: Ruth from Long Island NY on (9/4/2012)
My son has a tomato stand so we needed a scale to weigh the tomatoes. It arrived in 3 days (so do not bother with express shipping) and it works great! It is well made and all the functions work as intended. I am completely satisfied and would definitely recommend this product.Reviewed by: Griff from oyster bay, ny on (8/14/2012)
Very good value for low use scale. Performed as expected and good delivery.Reviewed by: Kerry from South Bend IN on (6/24/2012)
Great scale, Easy to Read, Battery operation and wall adaptor option is a plus, front cover keeps the display clean, We use it to measure our ground meat as we grind it. No pink slime here. Arrived fast and in great shape.Reviewed by: Bob E from Dallas TX on (6/13/2012)
I use this a a general scale. I like the almost 18 lbs. Very accurate. Test weight of 50 grams right on the money. Don't care for the plastic cover over the buttons.Reviewed by: tom gall from Boise on (5/10/2012)
I bake daily or more. I am very picky. This scale has really been a pleasure to use over the past year. Here are some of the reasons: Up to 8 Kg, so you can use heavy containers. Display still visible with a large plate on the tray. Almost "real time" read No watch batteries Unit button on top Oz mode goes above 16 Relatively quick to wake up Goober proof buttons Looooooong hold time (adjustable) The folks at OldWill have been very patient with my 1000 pre-sales questions.Reviewed by: Yann from Santa Barbara,CA on (3/14/2012)
LOVE THIS SCALE!!!! :) The KD7000 was my first scale I purchase and I use it for soap making, but then started using it for other things. I got tired of moving it from place to place so I decided to buy the KD8000 and LOVE IT just as much. The display is positioned just at the perfect angle so that I can put a bucket on it and read it perfectly. Just wish they would make one that went up to 30+ lbs.Reviewed by: Mary from Grayslake, Il on (1/12/2012)
I'm a bread baker and this scale does everything I need easily and well. I've used it multiple times since it arrived and it has made baking much easier. It's the perfect size and shape. It does exactly what I wanted.Reviewed by: Debra Kronenberg from Ketchum, Idaho on (1/4/2012)

Questions and Answersask a question
A: Hey Bob. The scale has a programmable auto-off (sweet!), so program it to stay on (easy-peasy) and you'll be good for your 6 minutes.
The numbers are 0.75" tall.
Right now, the power adapter is $6.97.
Yep, it'll weigh in 1 gram increments.
Hope that helps!
A: Hey there EP,
No, unfortunately we do not ship to Canada.
A: Hey there Steve,
There isn't an automatic hold feature for this scale. If you want the scale to hold the weight value on the display, you have to press the "HOLD" button yourself. You shouldn't have to worry about this scale giving you any grief in that regard.
A: Hey there Chris,
This unit is manufactured, to the strict specifications of My Weigh, in China.
A: Hey there Mark,
Yes, the unit needs a 5000 gram weigh in order to calibrate properly.
On some scales, the calibration weight value is influenced by the maximum capacity for the scale. In this case, the maximum capacity is 7000 grams, so 5000 grams would make sense.
A: Hey there Richard,
Yes, you want the weight value to be as accurate as possible, which is where the calibration weights come in.
