Is this good for coffee ?


You'll probably need a coffee machine... Or a kettle...

Pretty sure this won’t tell me the weight of Heston Blumenthal
0.5g == precision?!?!?

Just about for AeroPress/immersion/filter but definitely not for espresso but there are plenty of options with 0.1g precision out there.
This is pretty rubbish call it precision but make it anything but
I have these scales, I primarily bought it as it takes 3x aaa instead of the coin batteries. I use them alot.

The 0.5g increment is surprisingly useful. Its light to carry and easy to clean. Accurate with nice easy to read display.

Paid 12.59 in last year’s Black Friday sale from Amazon. Maybe they will drop again further.

My friend has a smaller version of these and he said he uses them to measure tiny amounts of fizzy drinks
I would have been all over this for my vape juice if it had 0.01 (hundredths).
Shame

If you're not a fan of technical esotericism, skip this post.

A few commenters have confused 'accuracy' with 'precision'. Not this this offends or annoys me in any way, think of this as a quick 1-minute 101 on data vs. accuracy, for fun.

We can't deduce anything about 'precision' from the 0.5g mass increments that this unit has been specified to measure.

What it does tell us, is the 'accuracy'.

'Precision' is how repeatable a measurement is, for example this device may over the baking of four cakes measure;

200.0g
200.5g
200.5g
200.0g

This tells is this device has a 'precision' of 0.5g - which in fact it is as specified.

Let's imagine a similar set of scales, this one measured;

201.5g
202.0g
198.5g
200.0g

This device has a 'precision' of 3.0g, noting that the mass 'increments' (i.e. accuracy) are still 0.5g.

Lets take yet another set of imaginary scales, this time with an 'accuracy' of 0.01g;

200.02g
201.32g
199.66g
200.50g

This device has a precision of 1.32g, which while more accurate, is in fact less precise than the '0.5g precision' set of scales posted here.

In summary this isn’t precise (more precise than some) while you made an example that these are best there are more precise scales for the same or less just without a celebrity chef selling licensing to it.

I hope my post didn't come across like I was endorisng these as the 'best' scales. Rather, I've made a point of conjuring imaginary scales to avoid such a comparison and thus avoiding any judgement on how good these scales would be for their intended purpose.

Given that I've not baked a cake or engaged in other such kitchen activities of this ilk - for more than a decade, I'd be among the worst to make a good judgement anyway. And the cake was rubbish.

Not sure really ... I mean you could use it to stir the coffee but you'll need a huge cup and then risk the battery getting wet.
Not sure it's worth the hassle but each to their own.
So if these aren't super precise what is? Our little one has PKU so we have to weigh everything for measuring protein amount etc
