I'm with Andy and RPCookin on this. I have a 5kg/11lb scale. When I put my 2 quart Pyrex mixing/measuring bowl on the scale it is already at 1,375 gm. I find it easier for lots of stuff to just weigh into the bowl. And, as someone said, you never know when you will want to weigh a parcel or something else heavier than 5 lbs. I love that pull out display. I'll probably go for that when this one eventually wears out.
Edit: I just remembered something else I use the scale for: weighing roasts. When CWS and I bought that half a baby bull, some packages weren't labelled for weight. When I buy a whole pork loin at Costco, I cut it into smaller pieces. I might want a roast that's bigger than 5 lbs.
May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.
