My wife and I have been on a diet and are counting calories. However, many food portions (chicken, fish, etc.) are broken down into ounces and difficult to accurately track. I bought this scale to properly portion our food and it works perfectly!!
The "Tare" feature resets the scale to zero weight with my plate on it, and I can then measure the weight of the food I place on it.
Auto turn off feature is nice and it even comes with the batteries needed for operation. You can't go wrong with this scale!!
