Last night I came into my kitchen to discover my 2 year old sitting on the counter, had emptied my new bag of KA rye flour (that I drove an hour to get ), and was doing what he thought was making bread. He was sitting there so cute -hands flat out mashing the flour pile, saying "mash, turn, mash, turn" which is what I let him do with his little piece of dough I save for him. Well, the 'cute' was wearing off and I pick him up, pull off the clothes to prevent further flour damage to my kitchen, and start to clean up the mess. Then I find it..... he had took the batteries out of my Escali digital scale I got from KA last year, left off the back cover, turned it upside down, and it was underneath the mountain of flour. I flipped out, because you could see flour even on the screen. I dusted it with a can of air, put the batteries back in, and it worked just as before. It is still correct, if you were wondering, because I had my starter sitting there I had just fed and reweighed. It may not be the best scale there is, but I would buy another one in a minute. I hope this helps anyone thinking of buying a new scale.
