  • The Perfect Diet Scale When You're "On The Go"

    Lots of folks have to measure their portions, and when you're on the road, that can be tough. Whether you're on the road, or just out at your local restaurant, this JT2 1000 fits the bill. Ya might have tried pocket scales... too small! Ya might have tried lugging around the portion scale that ya use at the house... too big! Well, this traveling diet scale is just right. The platform is big enough so that a butter plate at the restaurant will fit on it and you'll still be able to see the weight display. The 1000 gram capacity is big enough so that ya have plenty of room to tare (zero out) the weight of the plate, and still have enough capacity left to measure your portions. The tenth gram resolution is what's needed for accurately measuring your portions. And at 7.5" by 5.25" by 1.5", it's perfect for "on the go" portion control.

  • Secure Latching Lid

    Have ya ever thrown something in your purse or pack in a hurry only to find yourself searching for the darn thing's lid when ya need to use it? You won't have to worry about that one bit with this portable diet scale. When you're not using the JT-2 1000, the lid securely snaps in place to prevent it from coming off when ya don't want it to.

  • Bright Backlit Display

    The JT2 1000 has a fancy red, backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting.

  • Easy Calibration

    This travel size diet scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case ya need to calibrate it, the JT-2 1000 comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up a 1000 gram calibration weight to get the job done.

  • The Protective Cover Does Double Duty!

    The JT-2 1000 has a hard protective cover that is great for keeping your scale safe when ya aren't using it...and it doubles as a nice weighing tray. Since it has edges, you can weigh all kinds of things that would normally roll right off the platform.

  • Stainless Steel Platform

    The JT-2 has a durable stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze. Stainless steel is great because it doesn't scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing.

  • Tare Feature

    The tare button on the front of the JT-2 1000 portable diet 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 items you're adding. This sure is useful when ya want to use a plate or bowl to weigh your food.

  • Hold Feature

    The JT-2 1000 travel diet scale has a really handy hold feature that will allow you to "hold" the weight reading on the display even if the weight on the platform changes. This feature comes in really handy if you're using a plate that covers the display.

  • 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 JScale JT-2 1000 turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.

  • Energy Saving Auto-Off

    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 JT-2 1000 will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity, saving battery power and money.


    If ya have a problem with this scale, just send it to Jennings' 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 Jennings runs out of stock, which can cause a delay in the warranty replacement process.

Excellent scale and great customer service
I called because of the statement "The JT-2 1000 will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity." The person who picked up the phone had detailed knowledge of the scale and why they had put in that statement, which was that the time varies from 30 seconds to a minute or so. I ordered the scale and have been very pleased. Using the cover as a tray is a help when weighing liquids where a spill is possible.
