got the oxo one too and like it a lot....ryan
The reason I went with mine is because of the .1 g resolution. It's hard to find a scale that does that AND goes up to at least 2 kilos for a reasonable price. I HAVE to have the .1g for precise measuring of hydrocoloids. Also the platform you weigh on is considerably large enough to handle most products you will come across for your meals too.

The one I recommended only goes to 1kg or 2.2lbs equivalent. As with all my advice just trying to be helpful. Certainly not trying to say one is better than the other. Just showing a good option at a very good price point.
Amazing find, I'm getting one shipped over. Absolutely great for espresso coffee too, and for dry powder ingredients that need precise measurements.
Rick's suggestion also looks perfect for mixing epoxy, my crappy pocket scale is too small. I'll look into that, although the baker's scale is also appealing for the kitchen.

P.S. if you haven't switched it up to a VST basket, can I suggest that you try it out. Low cost for good results.
I'm currently using the Oxo as well but mine stops at ten pounds. Pretty decent scale. My last unit was a Salter which I liked better and it worked for nearly 20 years.
I weigh beans and coffee every morning for FP so I'm glad to see I'm not the only coffee geek here.
VST? Forgive me. Not a n00b but I keep it simple, more or less, so I'm not always up on the jargon. My Synesso double is starting to warp slightly (and is pouring a bit too quickly) after five years of once- or twice-a-day use in my Silvia. What is a VST?
ETA: Never mind. Looked it up and remembered having read about Vince Fedele's work. I'll link here for others so we can stay on-topic. http://coffeegeek.com/opinions/markprince/04-29-2011
I looked up the VST and it is almost identical to the baskets for my lever La Pavonni. Right now I'm brewing some Ethiopian heirloom roasted for espresso in it and the stuff is pretty amazing. Chocolate and cinnamon with some berry overtones. It makes a very nice Americano as well.
