You can easily weigh American recipes with the Brabantia Tasty + 122644 Dark gray. You set the weighing unit to grams, ounce, lbs or milk in ml and water in ml. The scale indicates when the batteries are low. This way you replace them on time and you are not in possession of an empty scale. You switch on the scale via a push button on the side. The display shows how much the ingredients weigh. The tare function and weighing units can be operated via touch buttons next to the display. Due to the compact size you can easily store the scale in your kitchen cupboard or hang it on the hook at the top.
