I am looking to purchase a kitchen scale for bread baking. I am looking for one that has a tare feature which will allow me to zero out the reading after each ingredient addition or to negate the weight of the bowl. Finances are a bit of an issue, so I need to find one that does the job at a reasonable price. I am a  home baker and do not require lab quality accuracy, but enough for bread baking purposes. Does any one have recommendations on what they like, don't like, things to look for, brand names, etc. Thanks in advance for your help. ~Docpat
