Detailed Commentary

I got the scale at Sweetmarias.com for $42.  His ad is slightly inaccurate.  It says that it measures in 2 gram increments, but it actually does one gram increments up to 1 KG.  So it is wonderful for measuring 13, 14 or 15 grams for a double espresso shot.  It is also great for one dose post-roast blending experiments.  I just mix my varieties up to one dose worth, throw it into the grinder and grind until done.  Of course it has the tare feature so I can zero out the container or previous ingredients.  My wife loves it for measuring out her ingredients for diet purposes.  The nice thing about the auto shutoff is that it waits 1 minute if the weight registered is zero and five minutes if it is greater than zero.  So if you have ingredients in place and you get distracted for a couple minutes, it doesn't shut off so quickly.
