Two Scales In One Makes For A Dandy Kitchen Scale The My Weigh Maestro looks and functions just like a regular scale. The large platform on top can handle up to 8 kilograms of weight with a 1 gram precision. When you need to start weighing smaller ingredients like spices, yeast, and vanilla just slide out the smaller platform from the side of the scale. The weight display will automatically switch to read up to 200 grams with 0.1 gram precision. Forget about buying two scales to handle your wide range of ingredients! The My Weigh Maestro has you covered.
See Your Weights In Two Units At Once Whether you're using the large platform or the small slide out platform, this digital kitchen scale will display the weight on the scale in two different units of measurement (like grams and ounces, for instance). The top unit will always be grams, but you can switch the bottom unit to any of the units from the table above for the platform you're using.
Baker's Percentage Feature This feature does away with 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.
Detachable Weight Indicator With 10" Retractable Cable The Maestro indicator can pull away from the base of the scale to make reading your weights easier with larger containers on the platform.
Hold Feature This feature lets you remove weight from the Maestro's platform and keep the weight reading on the display. This sure comes in handy if you need to remove your item from the scale.
Easy Calibration The Maestro kitchen scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case you need to calibrate it, the Maestro comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up one 5000 gram and one 200 gram calibration weight to get the job done.
Stainless Steel Platforms The My Weigh Maestro has durable stainless steel weighing platforms 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 Maestro 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 for recipes!
It Has WeighMeter™ Technology! If you put too much weight, (more than the capacity of the scale) on any scale it can cause permanent damage. Unfortunately, most scales warn you of an overload after it's too late. Luckily this food scale comes with WeighMeter Technology to tell you when you're coming close to the maximum capacity. This will save you from overloading your scale and damaging it beyond repair.
It Remembers The Last Unit You 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 kilograms. It's a good thing the Maestro turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when you turned it off.
Energy Saving Programmable Auto-Off If you've ever had your scale turn off on you in the middle of important measurements, you'll realize what a blessing this features is. You can program the Maestro to turn off automatically after 2 minutes of inactivity, 5 minutes of inactivity, or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.
Programmable Button Beeper Lots of scales beep when you press a key. This feature can be very useful, but can also get on your nerves. Luckily, with the Maestro, you can choose to turn the beep off. It's super easy, too. Just turn the scale off, hold the "HOLD" and "TARE" keys until the scale enters the programming mode. Press the "TARE" key until you see "bEEP 1". Press "MODE" until you see "bEEP 0" and press "TARE". Now your scale won't beep at you every time you press a button.
