The Jennings CJ-4000 Scale is, without a doubt, excellent for getting coffee brewing measurements spot on. Very popular amongst professional baristas, this scale is loaded with useful features. Weight is displayed in 0.5 gram increments, reaching a maximum of 4000 grams. One also has the option of measuring weight in ounces or pounds. The scale has an auto shut-off feature which causes it to automatically switch off after 2 minutes of inactivity. One does, however, have the ability to disable this feature for uninterrupted use. The scale’s large backlit display allows for greater clarity when reading off measurements, and the unit is also equipped with the standard tare/zero function.
However, perhaps one of the best features of the CJ-4000 scale is its unique clear, hard plastic protective cover which doubles up as a pouring bowl (when turned upside down). This cover ensures that your scale remains protected when stored away and also allows you to easily measure the weight of liquids and other food products. Additionally, the cover prevents the large, stainless steel weighing platform from getting soiled or scratched when it is in use. The scale is powered by 3 AAA batteries but also comes with an AC adapter (110V-220V). It also has advanced part counting features.
Definitely worth owning!
