The Good I received the Ozeri Touch II Digital Kitchen Scale with Microban in Red Engine color. I like the color because it fits in with my kitchen decor and this scale looks very modern and sleek. I was very impressed at the size and how thin it was. This scale has very little thumbprint in my kitchen, unlike my older more bulky scales. I like that it fits just about anywhere. When I need it I can just pull it out and use it. With the Microban antimicrobial product protection I am not worried about nasty growies anymore and the whole surface is easily wiped clean with a slightly damp rag or sponge, then wiped dry. It seemed to be fairly accurate when I weighed yams for our Candied Yam recipe and beans for our multi bean soup recipe and the large display is easy to read. I also liked that it can weigh up to 18 pounds as well. It will tell you when the batteries are low with a LO reading and the compartment they are held in is easily accessible without anything extra.

The Bad The scale I received had problems with its touch screen. The on/off...which is the same as the Tare button was very finicky. You are supposed to be able to press the on/off/tare button briefly to turn on the scale and press and hold for two seconds to turn it off. It would not respond correctly for me and I had to try multiple times to get it to work. I wish there was a third button for the on/off instead of it being the same button as tare then maybe the problem would resolve itself. Also, the batteries are the flat, round lithium type. These are not the kind of batteries I just keep around the house and they are expensive to replace.
