The My Weigh KD-8000 scale is the perfect scale which includes a removable Protective LCD Display Cover (as well as three Soft Protective LCD Display Covers) which helps protect against many weighing messes such as recipes, candle-making, spills, and more!
Not many scales in its class can match up to the reputation and features of the KD-8000; the biggest change from the KD-7000 to the KD-8000 is the new Baker’s Math/Percentage Weighing function. This has been a long-standing way for bakers to weigh their ingredients in proportion to their main ingredient (flour). This feature is the preferred method for bakers for the simple fact that it eliminates messy math that comes with weighing in teaspoons, cups, etc. – instead you deal with just percentage.
Also, measuring this way allows you to make as little or as much as you want easier. Now that’s the easiest way to go about baking, isn’t it? This is a MUST-HAVE for any aspiring or professional baker!
Baker’s Percentage Feature
This feature does away with the usual math required in adding just the right amount of ingredients, in proportion to the main ingredient (flour, for instance) of a recipe. This feature allows you to easily resize recipes based on percentage and makes mixing up batters and dough a piece of cake.
Protective “Gunk” Shield
The KD kitchen scale comes with a removable gunk shield to protect the display and keys from any concoction you might be mixing up. This is perfect if ya plan to use the 8000 as a candle making or soap-making scale.
Programmable Auto-Off Feature
If you’ve ever had your scale turn off on ya in the middle of important measurements, you’ll realize what a blessing this feature is. You can program the 8000 to turn off automatically or to stay on until you turn it off yourself.
Bright Backlit Display
This baker scale has a fancy backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. The digits are 0.75″ tall. Not only that! This digital scale’s display will tell ya if it’s holding a weight if ya pressed the tare button, and the unit you’re weighing with.
The tare button on the front of this digital scale can be pressed to “zero out” the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the item you’re adding. This sure is useful if ya want to use a separate bowl for mixing up your ingredients.
This feature lets ya remove weight from the scale and keep the weight reading on the display. This sure comes in handy if ya need to remove your item from the scale, or if ya use this scale as a postal scale and are having trouble seeing the weight display because of a big box.
Stainless Steel Platform
This digital food scale has an easy to clean, stainless steel weighing platform. The good thing about stainless steel is, unlike gold or silver, it doesn’t scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing.
It Remembers The Last Unit Ya Used
If your application needs weights in the same unit of measurement, (like ounces for instance), it can be a real pain if your scale always turns on ready to weigh in grams. It’s a good thing the KD-8000 turns on displaying the unit of measurement you were using when ya turned it off.
