Up for bid is this white talking kitchen scale with a large print display. Serve up equal portions at mealtime, accurately measure out baking ingredients for a favorite dessert, and more.

To use, simply place your food on the raised glass platform, and count to three. Its weight will be immediately determined, shown on the large display, and spoken in a clear, female voice.

The scale boasts four High-precision strain gauge sensors, so the weight it gives you is accurate to the nearest gram (0.035 ounces). To turn on, simply press the button, then place your first item. The scale will stay on for several minutes, and announce any changes in weight it detects, so if you're still measuring or have something else to weigh, there's no need to press the button again. The scale will announce the weight of the new measurement or item automatically. After a while, it will shut off by itself to save battery power.

This scale also boasts the handy Tare function, which allows you to weigh food in a dish, without the weight of the dish being counted in the measurement. Simply place a bowl on the scale, hit the Tare button to reset the weight to 0, then add your food. In just a couple of seconds, the weight of only your food will be spoken and shown.

The platform is made of toughened glass, and measures 8 inches by 6-1/2 inches (205 by 165 mm). The display is three quarters of an inch high - great for low-vision folks. The scale can weigh up to 12 pounds (5 kg), and can report weight in pounds, ounces, or grams.

On the back of the unit is a handy button for turning the speech on or off, convenient if you have both sighted and blind operators using the scale.

Takes 2 AAA batteries, which are not included.
