The CIA Masters Collection Digital Kitchen Scale weighs your food with the highest level of accuracy in either grams or ounces. The 11-Pound capacity handles meats, fruits and vegetables, as well as dry and liquid ingredients, dough and batters. The break-resistant polycarbonate bowl is shaped for easy viewing of the LCD display. The on/off button is conveniently located on the front, and automatically shuts off after 15 minutes of no weight change - longer than the 5 minute shut-off of most other scales. Simply invert the bowl and place over the scale for easy and compact storage. The Culinary Institute of America Masters Collection of cookware, cutlery, bakeware, and culinary tools was designed with hands-on involvement and testing by the school's faculty of Certified Master Chefs.
