The major difference from this scale and others on the market is that is is "Precise" to .01oz or 5 grams!


Mine are in increments of 0.01 grams

I dont use them any more

I'm using this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001...oh_product digital scale. Works fine. Cost me $25 -- Amazon's current price may be an error.

I have a pretty decent one I bought in December that is accurate to 1 g. It ok but since i brewone cup(16oz) at a time, I would like to but one accurate to 1/10th gr. if my credit card balances ever get low enough.
May the Force be with your cup

These guys have a good selection at very reasonable prices. I bought a cheap digital scale from them several years ago and it has worked well for me.

might help if I actually included the link, eh?

I like this scale very much. It's small and fits in the coffee cupboard quite nicely. And quite inexpensive at $19.50.

But don't drop it... I like it so much, I'm about to order a replacement...

Mine came today in the mail. It has a smaller footprint and I really like the 1/10 gr measure. This is really fun Shock

When I got to the Orphan Espresso site, I opted instead for the slightly more expensive model, same size. My new one comes with a calibration weight, so it will be dead nuts on every time.

I should have it in a couple days. Report coming.

I have been using my new scales for a while and was using by 1/10 gram is fantastic. Thanks for posting the info.

I just need a scale for measuring out half pounds for roast. Is that digi dosing scale overkill for me? Would I do just as well with a simpler model?
