My Take on the Scale
I was given the chance to try out this scale, and was amazed at how accurate it was. My daughters and I decided to try weighing so many things from food, to larger items like marbles. We were careful with it though as we didn't want to mess with the calibration of the special instruments. The scale itself was very easy to use. The instructions were clear and even me, a non-scientific guy could figure it out without much problem.

To be honest, I could see this being the science teacher's dream instrument, and I wish that I could simply give the scale to a local science teach that I know as I know that he would just love it!

If you are looking for an extra-accurate scale, then I would highly recommend that you check this scale out, you will not be disappointed!
