Good scale, frustrating instructions
Manual says in order to enter advanced settings mode press center and power buttons simultaneously for 3 sec.
But they don't tell you the unit must be off first, then press and hold center button, press and release pwr button, release center button after 3 seconds. After unit finishes startup countdown it will be in advanced settings mode.

Bought this to weigh baby bunnies
Very pleased with the product and ease of us. Also pleased with the options of kg, pound/oz or pound or oz. easy to read screen. Can also weigh packages or letters for proper mailing. Also great for cooking. The tare option is great when weighing combined products. Really like these scales.
I highly recommend these if you are looking for accurate and ease of use with options.

Great, very versatile scale!
This is the second one of these I've purchased in the last 8 months. I am a raw-feeder for my dogs, as well as a breeder, and dog trainer; so needed this scale at work AND at home. It gets used every day - whether I'm weighing food portions, or puppies. :) And occasionally even mail!
I love that it can calculate in percentage of pounds, as well as pounds/ounces, and kgs! Absolutely great scale.

Postage scale/baby kitten scale
I have bought several of these scales and keep them with a new litter. They work great for a couple of years then stop working, but Old Will Knott will replace them if this happens. For me it is an excellent way to weigh kittens up to six weeks old.

I found the scale on various other sites for twice as much in cost as well as the attachments and cord was considered add-ons. When I received it everything was packaged very well worth absolute no damage to the packaging.
Once I opened the box and read over the instructions I discovered that it's best to calibrate the scale using a 5kg weight. Since I didn't see this in the description before buying I didn't have one on hand so I made one myself to use.
Calibration was very simple. I love the fact that there is multiple weight measurements so I am able to pick which one is better for my individual needs.
Definitely a great buy.

This scale does so much. I originally bought it for weighing fiber for spinning, but now will also be using it for soap making. Although the bowl is too small for the carded fiber I need to accurately weigh, I used my largest stainless steel mixing bowl and quickly made the proper bundles for spinning. The tare function is great and helped me a lot even down to half an ounce in my great big bowl. I am very pleased with this scale and the service I have received from this company.

I have been using this product for over 5 years. Just recently one of my scales stopped working so I ordered another. During this process I was informed that the scale at this location was still under Warranty. I was sent a copy of the Warranty and a copy of the sales receipt to be able to send in for repair or replacement. Since I have multiple stores I sent in and just received it back. Now I have a back up in the event I have a problem in the future. Awesome Customer Service...... Thank you!

The best scale I've ever had
I bought this scale in 2003, expecting the normal 1 year life that every other scale I've ever used had. I used it professionally ( in a bakery and restaurant) for 4 years, until I retired and I'm still using it & recommending it to the students I teach. It remains accurate down to 1/10th of an ounce and 1 gram. I bought the adaptor and I think it helps keep the scale going. I never use it without the adaptor plugged in. I hope they never discontinue this one!

I last purchased a scale over 20 yrs ago for soap making. When I was researching one to replace it I decided upon this one. The price was 1/4 of what I originally paid and the functionality is far superior. This is a great multi-purpose scale for mail, the kitchen, etc. The fact that it weighs up to 15lbs 7 oz is just awesome!! I was a bit hesitant when I placed my order as I could not believe the price would provide a quality product. I was wrong. This is a wonderful, affordable product.

My Weigh 7001DX ~ Great Purchase
I am a macaw breeder. Every baby MUST be weighed every day. It is the ONLY way to be sure a baby bird is healthy and gaining weight daily. This scale delivers! Simplicity of use, tare function and the ability to 'hold' weights for an sum total is invaluable! My babies are about to outgrow the provided container but with the tare function I can replace it with a larger stable vessel with no worries. Backlighting the display was genius since I don't want to wake up all babies at once or the entire household. Many more features as well make this THE scale for a bird breeder like myself! The only change should be to provide a suction mount perch to weigh the birds when they learn to perch. I HIGHLY recommend this scale to any and all folks in any animal business where daily weight gain/loss must be accurate and easy to check. You can't go wrong with the 7001DX.

At last - a fantastic scale
After purchasing two scales from other vendors which were cheaply made and died within months, I've finally found a high quality, reliable, well-made scale. I love that I can use the adapter if I run out of batteries as well. However, batteries seem to last forever in this model (7001 DX)! I highly recommend this scale to anyone who needs a really good kitchen scale. There are none better. Love it!

The 7001DX is a very nice scale. The backlit display is a nice feature, as is the ability to tilt the display window. The compact size is great for storage. The bowl is large and securely sits upon the scale or can be removed if not needed. My scale is used to weight small items and is so much better than the old one I had that only read in .5 ounce units. I am very happy with the purchase of this scale. The order was filled, shipped, and delivered very quickly. Well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. I would certainly do business with this website in the future should I need to replace this scale or purchase a different one.
