^ Mine is much smaller capacity, so it is a bit harder but that is what I do. It was $50 brand new but with the 20% off came down to $40. I know because I was going to buy it before Andy gifted it to me. I think this is it:
Salter Chrome Elite Digital Scale from Overstock.com

I love the tare. I love everything about it except it doesn't allow me to weigh more. Salter makes excellent scales.

I have that exact scale and got it on sale for $20. It weighs up to 5lbs but that's including the tare weight, so if your bowl weighs 1lb, you can only weigh 4 lbs. It works fine for smaller things like hop additions, but is bad if you're doing lots of dough.

I expected to get a good one for a lot more. So my question is: Which scale is best? Thanks for the help.
Mine is an Escali, and I love it. Its maximum weight is 12 pounds. I have used it for baking, figuring postage for ebay (that's the main thing I bought it for), and weighing grit for my rock tumbler.
