Jazzy, you raise a good point. I just timed the OXO that I gave the link to earlier and found this:
From "on," it quickly counts down to "zero" before you can weigh anything...it timed-out in 3min. 21sec. I then started over after I placed a weight on it and it timed-out in 3 min exactly. The problem really is that, for the shopper, it's almost impossible to know the "time-out" for a scale before you buy it. And, as far as I can recall, it's not even in the instruction pamphlet that comes with.
My only criticism of this scale is that it's limited to a max. 11 lbs. Good luck weighing your huge brisket after you've trimmed it. I guess the only way to do that would be to keep the butcher's label with the whole brisket's weight on it, trim your brisket, weigh the trimmings and subtract from butcher's weight.
Good Q'en On Ya'. John
