This is a nice quality scale, that's easy to use, & it comes with a bag to store it in. To turn it on simply push tare, then, select the measurement unit you want to use, it has ml, g, oz, & lb available, then just place your item on it & it's a clear digital read out, that simple. It's much clearer than tje picture. I buy big packages of meats, veggies, & fruits, then, use the scale to divide it up into meal or serving sizes, then, to freeze & use later. I use it for dry foods like rice, beans, etc. to make 1 or 2 lb Mylar bag packages for emergency food storage. I also use it to weigh packages & mail, so I can figure the postage costs, or apply the proper stamps. I've found so many more uses than I originally thought I'd use it for, it serves many functions, cleans up easily, & stays clean in the storage bag.
