Product Details

Auto-Off Feature 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 CS5000 will automatically turn off after a few moments of inactivity.

Tare Feature The tare button on the front of this digital 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 when ya want to get the weights of separate items.

Stainless Steel Platform This compact digital scale has a durable stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze. Unlike gold or silver, stainless steel 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 jewelry scale always turns on ready to weigh in grams. It's a good thing the CS5000 turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.

Easy Calibration This portable scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case ya need to calibrate it, the CS 5000 comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up a 2000 gram calibration weight to get the job done.

1 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! When ya get this compact scale, ya need to go over to the Ohaus website and register it to receive a one year warranty.

Small and lightweight, but so far it's durable and accurate. I use it to measure ingredients for lotions, lip balms, body butter, and soaps. So far, I'm very happy with my purchase.

Ancient scale we had was killed during a move. Found this one on the Old Will Knott site and decided to go for it. The price was right, shipping was prompt and packaging was good. The Gent that is employing the scale is tickled pink with every aspect of this Ohaus Scale! WellDone, and thanks for making this so easy!
