Ideal for weighing bulk recipe ingredients, the DK-5K is two scales in one as it has two weighing platforms. The larger Platform A has a capacity of 5,000 grams and is suitable for weighing bulk ingredients. Use Platform B with a capacity of 1,000 grams when you want extra precision to within 0.1 grams. The larger platform displays units in grams, ounces, pounds and fluid ounces, while the smaller platform displays grams, ounces, troy ounces and carats. The backlit display makes it easy to read. Glass construction and touch-key operation allow for easy cleaning.
