This is not just a Japanese design classic, but a strikingly handy cooking scale for home use.
Nicknamed "tanipetit" (タニペティ), blending the manufacturer's name, Tanita - a Japanese legend in professional scales - with French "petit", to underline its compact size.
Being completely analog, there's no need to worry about running out of battery; its precision is exactly as expected, Japanese, and thanks to its thin design, it can easily fit in the drawer, saving plenty of space.
A clever knob attached to the upper part of the main body allows to adjust the scale to zero before using, so that it is also possible to set a different starting tare.
It measures within a weight range between 0 and 1000g.
