So my current foodscale is about ~20 grams off per 200 and I'm going to return it. I would appreciate it if you guys and gals could name off some really good food scales preferably with a calibration function but it's not a requirement if the scale is highly accurate. Thanks

Not sure where you are located, but this is the one that i use and it works pretty well with me.

I don't know that I'd keep a scale that is that much off, even if it could be calibrated
just get a scale that weighs well from the start
which scale did you get?

It was just a standard taylor scale, but I put a glass on it, tared it out, poured in one cup of water exactly and it was ~20 grams off what it should have been.

Any other suggestions on food scales?

It's not realistic to try to measure a cup of water within 20 grams. I'd buy an accurate weight for calibrating if I was as picky as you.

I tried to point that out in his other scale thread, but that wasn't the answer he wanted to hear.
