This scale turned out to be a blessing. Since its arrival we have used it many times as we are health conscious eaters and it has allowed us to measure certain ingredients with ease. It is just the right size. Navigating the menu is a breaze and the backlit display is easy to read from all angles. The only slight negative is the buttons are touch sensitive. This is great when in use, but when storing away in the nice included protective bag, the buttons still react to the touch even through the bag. However, as long as you are aware of it, it becomes a minor issue.
