Detailed Commentary

I was impressed enough with the US Balance "New" BenchTop Pro to write a review about it.  It's a new model. I pretty much like everything about it. Large 2000g capacity with  .1g resolution. It seems heavier built (11.5oz) than most similar sized scales. Not too big or small, 4"x4"SS platform making it very versatile for  my various coffee needs . Can weigh green beans for roasting, bag roasted, CCD/Pourover, .1g resolution for baskets, set a pf on it, fits on my drip tray to weigh shots etc.etc. The display has a nice smooth cover to easily clean. The digits are large and backlit. Good for us seniors. The clear plastic cover can be used as a tray.
