My newest scale has programming for 1900 foods, giving you the nutrition content, sodium, fiber, fat, etc. for the amount of food you put on it. It's really cool...I've been having fun with it.
You need to sign for Zyrtec also.

Do you have a link to that scale? I have heard of them and thought it would be good to know the carbs and such.

I use a scale for measuring fruits and sugar when making jellies... but I definitely did get some strange looks buying it, perhaps because I'm so young lol! Who knows what they thought I'd be doing with that scale... but I guess now I know lol! :]

I saw the same scale at Bed, Bath and Beyond today, same price as on the website. Save you some shipping.

You would be the only person in the US to ever use a postage scale to weight a letter!

*raises hand* Has a special separate set of kitchen scales for postage reasons They're useful, okay! And cheaper than buying a proper postage scales set.

I guess when it comes to kitchen scales, some people will now see it as having your cooks, and then your 'cooks'...
