  • It Works!
    I've had this scale for 4 months and I have lost 35lbs. I was really clueless about portion size until I got this scale. In the beginning, I used it all the time, keeping a cumulative daily total. Since I was trying to keep at 60%-20%-20% balance of carbs, fat, protein it was invaluable because I could see what I needed to get to the end of the day and stay within my diet. Believe it or not, that often meant at the end of the day I had leeway to have a (small) treat, which has kept me sane.

    Now that I've had it for a while, I don't run daily totals, but I still use it all the time for accurate portion sizes. The manual gives instructions clearly and it is short -- but do be prepared to spend about 10 to 15 minutes learning to use the scale. Once you get it, it is easy.

    I've entered in about 25 entries for food items that are not programmed in already. Entering them is easy. The code book is plastic so it won't get ruined by water. The scale is excellent for weighing mail, too.

    The auto-shut off will save batteries and still gives you plenty of time to dig around in the fridge and chop something up.

    Here are the reasons I did not give it 5 stars: The display could use more contrast as it is a bit dim. Every time you push a button, there is a loud beep noise. It can't be turned off. The book with the list of food codes is not in any sensible order and it has too many codes most adults don't need, like candy bars and processed foods. A condiment section would have been helpful instead of having to find mayo in one place, mustard in another, and I have yet to find ketchup.

    I would totally overlook most of the above to give this product 5 stars, except for that infernal beeping.

    I could not have had the success I've had without this scale! I never pay expedited shipping for anything, but I did for this and I am glad!...more info
  • LOVE IT
    It works great, you get what you pay for in this product. I love that it takes the weight of the container off for you. It is very easy to use. The code book is laminated so it will hold up being used in a kitchen. ...more info
  • A great help
    How often have you wondered how many calories were in the item you were eating. This scale answers that question. It depends on size and using a code tells you the exact amount of calories, sugars etc in almost anything you can name. I would highly recommend this scale for anyone trying to lose weight or maintain their weight. It's a winner....more info
  • Exactly what I needed!!
    At first sight, I thought this scale would be complicated but it is easy to weigh your foods and get all the nutrient information of the foods your weigh. I found it very easy to add foods that are not already programmed in. (it already has almost 1000!) Its small so it doesn't take up much room yet it tells you things like calories and protein and fat content. I love it!...more info
  • improvements needed
    I am satisfied with the scales being accurate, but the combination of the smoked glass screen without backlighting, and the small size of the print makes it really hard to use all the functions. It's even hard to read if a plate or dish more than 6/7ins. in diameter is used, a lighted screen or clear glass screen would be nice and couldn't cost that much more to include. I guess the old addage { you get what you pay for } still applies here. If I need another one I'll spend the extra money and purchase a more user friendly model or make....more info
  • great product!
    Just my two cents. I'm a bodybuilder and an athlet thus involved in a planned sport diet. Due to this I have been using several kitchen scales from al round the world. I live in Italy.
    As far as I know, this scale is the only one with this features. I have seen something similar here in Europe (although at almost triple the price), but nothing like this. The display shows exactly what you see when looking at the nutritional facts on the food package.
    It is a very precise scale. It has hundreds of food nutritional facts pre programmed and 99 blank position that can be filled by the user food data.
    In addition, it has a 'total' function which allows to sum all the food of the day so to know the quantity of all the macronutrients ingested.
    Definitely a must for everyone who cares to check what is eating and how much.
    The only little mole I have found (at least for me but other can disagree) is that when dialing personal food nutitional fact no decimal can be dialed. This means that if a food has 12,4 protein in 100 grams you can only dial 12 or 13: no decimals.

    Guess I can survive with it but I would suggest the producer to implement this feature in future version of the scale.

  • Kitrics Digital Scale
    This is a great product. It is simple to use and comes with easy to understand instructions. Not only does it come preprogramed with 999 foods you can also add up to 99 of your own if you happen to eat some speciality foods like I do. I would reccomend this scale to anyone who wants to stay on top of the nutritional aspect of their diet and portion size. This scale is a real eye opener....more info
  • first scale did not work right
    The first scale I received would not allow me to enter my own selection. I called Kitric and they sent me a replacement the next day. I am very pleased with Kitric's response and with their scale. ...more info

I totally recommend this product. I plan on buying some for gifts!! Also can be used for mailing, now you will know exactly how much postage to put on those letters or packages! Measures in both grams and ounces. ...more info
  • Works great
    This is not only really functional but fun as well! I entered in all the stats on some brownies I made and was shocked to see what my usuall serving amounted to. ...more info
  • A great gift idea for loved ones
    I bought this for my Mom after it sold out on QVC. She has Rosacea and is allergic to any treatments, so her only other option is to strictly monitor her sodium intake. In addition, she is having cholesterol issues. I believe that she was truly grateful for this technology. Dad said she started using it right away.

    My parents are both technology/computer science instructors, so while they appreciate a good gadget, they also have a high aptitude for using and understanding them. Out of fairness, I won't testify on ease of use, merely mention that Mom had no issues getting started. Batteries are included, by the way.

    All in all, a good value and a great gift idea....more info
