Detailed Commentary

This product is basically a postal scale bought from an office supply store, Office Depot.  It costs a bit over $60 plus sales tax.  Scale can be zeroed means that one can place a plate onto the scale and then touch a button and have a reading of zero.  In other words, then what is subsequently placed onto the plate will generate the weight of said object.  With an AC adapter, one no longer has to be overly concerned if the scale is left on.  If one intends to use the scale often and it is digital, then it is a wise choice to pick one that allows for power via an AC adapter that can be bought for a bit over $10. Otherwise, 9 volt batteries probably run about $1 a piece.  I find the 70 oz capability more than adequate for my needs.  Like other scales, the Sunbeam needs to be placed upon a solid, firm surface.  It probably makes little difference as to which digital scale one chooses as long as it has the features that the users requires.  The Sunbeam is probably at the lower end of the price range of digital electronic scales.
