This food scale from Oxo has a capacity of 11lbs / 5kg and features a user friendly stainless steel design with a pull-out display. The scale allows you to weigh items directly on the platform or in a bowl and pull the display away from the base to prevent shadows from large bowls or plates. The scale has a convenient weight indicator that tells you the capacity left on the scale before the max capacity is reached. You can press the "0" button to offset any weight currently on the scale, so you can add additional foods. The display is easy to read as it features large numbers and allows you to measure in both imperial and metric measurements. The Oxo stainless steel food scale runs with two AAA batteries (included).
