  • When setting “g” as weight unit, the default volume unit is “ml”.
  • When setting “lb: oz” as weight unit, the default volume unit is “fl’oz”.

To start weighing

Weighing mode

  1. Place a bowl (if necessary) on the scale.
  2. Pressto turns on. Wait until LCD shows “O”.
  3. Press the MODE button to convert to weighing mode.
  4. Load weighing object on the scale (or in the bowl) to start weighing. LCD will show the weight reading.
  5. If the weighing object is water or milk, press the MODE button to choose volume mode and view the volume of the weighing object.

Volume indication mode

  1. Pressto turns on. Wait until LCD shows “O”.
  2. Press the MODE button to choose “Water” or “Milk” mode.
  3. Put a liquid container onto the scale platform.LCD shows the weight of the container.
  4. Pressto zero or tare weight.
  5. Pour the liquid (water or milk) into the container. LCD shows the volume of the liquid.
  6. Press the MODE button to choose “Weight” mode and view the weight of the liquid.

“ZERO” or “TARE” function

To weigh different loads consecutively without removing previous loads from the scale:

  1. Put the first Load on the scale and get a weight reading.
  2. Press the button to reset the reading to “O” before adding the next load. You can repeat this operation.

Condition 1: “ZERO” functionWhen the total sum of all loads on the scale is ≤4% of the scale’s max. weight capacity (4% here means 200g with this scale), LCD will show “—–” or “0g” each time is pressed.“—–” means reading is not stable. Please wait for a moment. “0g” and meanwhile an icon “O” on the left side of LCD indicate ZERO function is activated. In this case, Max. weight capacity remains unchanged.

Condition 2: “TARE” functionWhen the total sum of all loads on the scale is >4% of the scale’s max. weight capacity, LCD will show “—–” or “0g” each time is pressed.“—–” means reading is not stable. Please wait for a moment. “0g” and meanwhile an icon “T” on the left side of LCD indicate TARE function is activated. In this case, Max. Weight capacity is reduced by the total weight of all loads.

Under this condition:

  • By pressing, you can see the total weight of all loads on the scale.
  • To weigh more loads, just press to reset LCD reading to ‘0’ again.

Shut off

Auto shut-off: Auto shut-off occurs if LCD shows ‘0’ or shows the same weight reading for 2 minutes.Manual shut-off: To maximize battery life, press the button continuously to turn off the scale after use.

Warning indicators
