It does the job, it's reasonably cheap, and very compact.
Positive Product Points
It's quite small -- about the size of a TI calculator, an (optional) 200g tare calibration weight is available, its max capacity is well within my requirements
Negative Product Points
It may be a little slow to "boot up." It only handles 200g (max).
The Upton Teas Digital Pocket Tea Scale is an excellent addition to your coffee (and tea) kitchen. I like my French Press coffee, my Aerobie Aeropress, and (especially) my espresso shots dosed with the appropriate amount of coffee.
The UTDPTS (see above) delivers on all counts: it measures from 0-200 grams in 0.05 gram increments -- more than enough for my daily consumption. I usually turn it on and then tare it with an empty receptacle. Then I weigh my coffee beans (pre-grinding) into the tare'd container, then I grind, then I brew -- using whichever method I've chosen for that morning (FP, AP, Espresso). Great repeatability! And, with the (optional) calibration weight (which I have) -- guaranteed lifetime accuracy and precision! Can't beat that.
Okay, now to address the "dark side." This digi-scale also includes a "cupweight" scale for teas. The standard there is 2.25 grams per 6-8 ounce cup of water. This scale includes a "cupweight" mode: select it and the display will read out the number of "cups" of tea the corresponding weight will brew.
My wife likes tea (and doesn't drink much coffee). I thought this feature would pay for itself -- it really hasn't because I tend to use the grams scale more. My wife drinks a 14 oz "cup" of herbal (caffeine free) tea at a time. The recommended dosage is 2.25 grams of "tea" per 6-8 oz cup -- I just do the math and convert that to the appropriate amount of grams for her "large" cup size (Victoria's Secret eat your heart out!) and weigh out the correct dosage in grams.
I occasionally drink tea from a 10 oz "cup" -- and I also weigh this out in grams, using the same 2.25 grams per 6-8 oz conversion.
I think I paid a premium for a scale that includes the "cup weight" calibration -- and is limited to 200 g (in 0.25 g increments). If you know ahead of time that grams (or ounces) is what you'll use primarily -- you might look further and find a better deal. And, If you plan to measure out food portions you could also look elsewhere.
I don't regret my purchase, and I use it nearly everyday, it completely meets my needs -- but I might have saved a few dollars by researching it just a little bit further. If you consider the cost of the scale *and* a calculator (which I use) then maybe you'll do better with just this scale.
A word to the wise! t++
I bought directly from Upton Teas. They are a quality online vendor -- nothing but sweetness all the way: the scale *and* their teas. Highly recommended.
