Smart Weigh 500 x 0.01g Digital Pro Pocket Scale Review

I received this item in exchange for an honest review.

I have something a little bit different to share with you today. I've been wanting a small scale for awhile, mostly just for when I'm mailing something a little bit heavier and need to try to figure out postage. I haven't used this scale for that particular purpose yet but I'm sure I will eventually. Here's a little bit of information about the Smart Weigh Pro Pocket Scale:

Now for my review. First of all I'm not really sure why one would be lugging around a small scale with them, but if one were going to just that, this would be a reasonable product to use. It's not too heavy and small enough to carry in a larger size purse or backpack.

I'm not sure how accurate this scale is. I did test it with a package of cheese which was 8 ounces and the scale read 8.5 ounces so that seems about right when you consider the additional weight of the packaging and any discrepancies in the actual product.

I found this scale very easy to use and I did use it for several different things, and I even used different measurements (grams and ounces.) I've had it for several weeks now and it's functioned fine without any issues and zero battery changes so that alone is a thumbs up in my opinion.

So let's see how I used it, shall we? First of all, one of the things I really hate sometimes about recipes is the different measurements - especially when it comes to yeast. I buy yeast in bulk so I don't want to hear any of this "use one package of active yeast" nonsense, I want teaspoon or tablespoon measurements. Well, now as long as I know the ounces required, I'm set! I was making bagels recently and the instructions called for ounces of yeast, so I was so happy to have my scale and to not have to try to figure out what that measurement equals in teaspoons or tablespoons.

Then I thought, oh! I can measure each bagel to make sure they're all about the same size. Yeah, I'm never doing that again. Too much of a pain - not by fault of the scale, just too much OCD effort on my part for little reward.

But my bagels came out nicely and I obviously used the correct amount of yeast, so mission accomplished.

So more than that, you know what else this scale is perfect for? Weighing gerbils!!!

There's been a joke in my household about my gerbils being too fat, well now I have the perfect scale to put that to the test. Pikachu and Marvin each weigh about 105 grams, which is about normal for a full grown male gerbil from my research. They're probably a little heavy at the moment because it's almost winter.

The Smart Weigh Pro Pocket Scale is also the perfect size for measuring their food. I've done this a couple of times now, just to verify that I am feeding them correct amount.

This scale did as expected, with no problems what so ever. I am very pleased with it and will continue using it in the future.

You can purchase this product on for $17.99.
