Ozeri Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale

If there was such a thing as “the iPad of coffee scales”, the Ozeri Touch would be it. The scale’s glossy black tempered-glass surface and touch-sensitive buttons certainly lend to the effect, and even the specs are somewhat similar:

Ozeri Touch iPad Air
Height: 9.1″ 9.4″
Width: 5.9″ 6.6″
Depth: 0.6″ 0.29″
Weight: 1 lb 1 lb

But more than its good looks, the Ozeri Touch works nicely for making coffee. Two things to keep in mind:

  1. In “gram” mode, it only measures to the gram, rather than 0.1 gram increments. Not a big deal for us, but might matter to others.
  2. Though the tempered glass is tough stuff, if you’re going to brew coffee directly on the thing I would place a kitchen towel over the surface and tare (“zero out”) the scale first.

Get the 12lb (5,750 gram) version for $17 on Amazon. Need something more heavy-duty for cooking purposes? There’s also an 18lb (8,000 gram) version for $25.
