Rotating Dial The Penn P 5R top loading scale has a very handy rotating dial. Why is a rotating dial so handy? Because it allows you to weigh something, like a container, and rotate the dial back to zero. You can't do that with just any ol' dial scale.
Rugged Design, Great For Heavy Use The Penn Scale P-5 spring scale is a perfect addition to any market or butcher's shop. Its stainless steel construction makes sterilization a simple task, and ya won't have a problem reading your weights on this scale's large dial display.
Stainless Steel Platform This flat top spring scale has a durable, stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze.
Air Dashpot Technology Don't ya just hate waiting around for a scale to settle down after ya put your items on it? That won't be a problem with this top loader. The P-5 has an air dash pot that will eliminate the bounce for faster readings.
Zero Adjust Knob This portioning scale has a handy little knob under the platform that let's ya adjust the scale's dial back to zero before weighing. This is great for getting accurate weights of all your items.
Dual Reading Dial Doesn't it get on your nerves when one recipe calls for ingredients in grams and the next recipe calls for ingredients in ounces? Well with this food scale, that won't be a problem. The dual reading dial on the Penn P-5 displays your weights in both pound/ounces and kilogram/grams simultaneously...you'll never have to worry about switching back and forth between units again.
1 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! This dial scale has a one year warranty against manufacturer defects. If ya have a problem with this scale within the first year ya own it, just send it in to the Penn warranty center. They'll either fix it or replace it, and have it back to ya real quick.
After reading many reviews of electronic scales, each of which had multiple entries of electronics going out after a short time, I decided on a mechanical scale. I am proud to say that this scale is 100% American Made. The entire housing is sturdy stainless steel, and the movement of the mechanism is precise, with no wobble or slop. This scale should last a lifetime. The handy features include the rotating dial, which basically allows one to "tare" the scale, to account for any measuring container used. The air-pot damping eliminates the wait I was used to with other spring-scales. The only drawback I can see with this scale is its size--if you're looking for a tiny, flat electronic model, you won't be happy with this one (or any spring-scale for that matter). But this is smaller than a toaster, and attractive as well. I couldn't be more pleased!Reviewed by: Rob B. from Texas on (5/16/2012)
