In 2017 the KD-8000 scored 84% on the Choice Digital Kitchen Scales Review, here are the results:
The MyWeigh KD-8000 scale is the perfect scale which includes a removable Protective LCD Display Cover (as well as three Soft Protective LCD Display Covers) which helps protect against many weighing messes such as recipes, candle-making, spills & more!
Not many scales in its class can match up to the reputation & features of the KD-8000; the biggest change from the KD-7000 to the KD-8000 is the new Baker's Math/Percentage Weighing function. This has been a long-standing way for bakers to weigh their ingredients in proportion to their main ingredient (flour).
This feature is the preferred method for bakers for the simple fact that it eliminates messy math that comes with weighing in teaspoons, cups, etc. - instead you deal with just percentage. Also, measuring this way allows for you to make as little or as much as you want easier. Now that's the easiest weigh to go about baking, isn't it? This is a MUST-HAVE for any aspiring or professional baker!
