Ozeri Touch II ZK13-5PW: Features
This kitchen scale has a high weight capacity, that can show weight in multiple units of measurement, and has an integrated display. Also, the Touch II has a modern, design that comes in various colors with a touch interface.
This food scale earned a perfect score in our accuracy tests. It can weigh items as light as 1 ounce and as heavy as 18 lbs. This is one of the highest weight capacities of any food scale we reviewed. The Ozeri Touch II’s weighing area is a roomy 54 square inches – it isn’t the largest scale we reviewed, but it has more than enough space to weigh ingredients for a home cooked meal.
To switch the unit of measurement, you press the button marked “unit” to the left of the display. You can switch results between pounds, ounces, fluid ounces, milliliters, and grams – that’s more units than any other scale we tested. The only one it’s missing is kilograms.
The scale’s tare feature is another useful tool that allows you to zero out the weight of the container you are weighing ingredients in. When you add ingredients to the container, the scale will display only the weight of its contents. This is especially helpful when working with liquids since you can’t weigh them without a container.
Most of the scales we reviewed are either purely functional or emphasize looks above performance. The Ozeri Touch II strikes a good balance between the two. It’s thin, simple and sleek. Many food scales are heavy and bulky, and the Touch II’s compact, lightweight design is refreshing and no doubt accounts in part for its popularity.
The Ozeri Touch II’s integrated display is one of its standout features – it has large, backlit numbers that are easy to read in any lighting condition. To save battery power, this kitchen scale automatically shuts itself off after about three minutes, which is the longest idle time of the food scales we reviewed.
