MY WEIGH KD7000
KD7000 Kitchen Scale
The My Weigh KD-7000 Digital Scale is the standard by which all other kitchen and office scales will now be judged. There is simply no better mid-sized scale for your kitchen, office, or home! The KD 7000 is both easy to clean and easy to use. Double-stopper protection, a strong reinforced & removable Stainless Steel platform, and modular construction on a scale body made of strong reinforced ABS plastic make this scale extremely durable.
This scale includes a removable clear LCD cover that protects the buttons and LCD from damage (great for messy recipes, soapmaking or candlemaking), and secondary removable soft clear faceplate covers. With a large 7 kg (15.4lb) capacity and precise 1 gram (0.1oz) readings, this scale is an incredible value.
The KD-7000 reads in Grams, Ounces, Pounds, & Kilograms, which makes them perfect for Home, Office, Kitchen and thousands of other uses.
Background of the new KD-7000 series
In 1999 we introduced the original KD-600 series scales. They were a huge success and we sold more than 100,000 units during their production. However there were some design issues with the original scale and many improvements were requested by consumers. Thus we set out to design a new model. We wanted to improve the scale to add all of the features and innovations that our customers had asked us for over the years.
First we applied "Basic" improvements by building our own software program and IC chips with advanced functions. We added many advanced features including:
An adjustable or disable-able auto off feature. This is very important to consumers because there are times that you may want to use your scale continuously for a long period of time. If the scale was turning itself off every 5 minutes (for example), this could really interfere with your work. Other times you might want to conserve power and have the scale turn off automatically after 1 minute of use.
An adjustable audible beep function. Some people want to hear a "beep" whenever they press a button as confirmation. Other people get very annoyed by this and want the scale to be silent. Thus we made our beep function with an electronic on/off feature. There is a simple switch at the back of the scale to control the beep function.
An adjustable backlight time. When you turn on the backlight of your scale - do you want it to remain on indefinitely - or would you like it to turn off after 30 seconds to conserve power? With the KD-7000 you can decide how long the backlight should stay on for.
A HOLD feature. We were often asked to add a HOLD feature to our scales. People complained that they would put an oversized box on the scale and couldn't read the display. So, we added a HOLD feature that holds the weight of an item on the display (simply put the box on the scale and press HOLD, then you can remove the box and see what the weight was on the display).
A removable acrylic faceplate protector and splash guard. Many users of digital scales notified us that they often damage or destroy their scale by accidentally dripping foods, chemicals or solvents onto the faceplate of the scale. This either stains or damages the LCD and keypad. To prevent this we invented a new cover that lifts up to allow usage of the buttons. While the cover is lifted up, spills will run into a channel that we designed, rather then falling onto the LCD or buttons. This cover is 100% removable for people that don't want to use it or don't require it.
The next improvement was in the area of Modes. Our customers had specific needs, and we needed to accommodate every postal / shipping company. Thus we made the new Ultraship read in Pounds:Ounces, Pounds, Straight Ounces, Grams, Kilograms. This is very important because in the USA some people need their scale to display 5 1/4 pounds as "5lb : 4.0oz" and some people need it to be shown as "5.250lb" or even "84.0oz". Likewise for Kilograms some people need 2.5 kilograms to be displayed as "2.500kg" and some people need it to be shown as "2500g".
The KD-7000 are the standard by which all other kitchen and office scales will now be judged. There is simply no better mid-sized scale for your home, office or kitchen.
