scale - converting to grams?

Does anyone know how to get the Weigh Of Life scale to show grams? I don't have the manual and I've scoured the internet for hours without results. Currently it shows ounces, and no amount of button pushing seems to change that.

The scale looks like this:

(mine is an older version with a metal plate instead of glass)

Might not be possible, as some are unfortunately Imperial weights only...

Can you give an exact model number? I'm sure there's a manual available online, but just 'looking like' isn't gonna get us there... need the exact model.

Hi, it is a bit of an inconvenience, but you could multiply ounces by 28.375 to get grams.

1 oz = 28g

2 oz = 57g

3 oz = 85g

4 oz = 115g

5 oz = 140g

remember those five conversions, and addition/subtraction/multiplication/division will do the rest

I used to have a scale like this and there was no button to change it to grams.  But, somewhere hidden in the base was a little switch that I found by accident.  Give a look, you never know.

A little research that I did seems that they no longer make this brand but now make perfect portions brand scales.  IF that is true try contacting them at this number

:)  on the left side...  Many of these creatures need two buttons pushed with one hand while the other toggles up and down or < and > to change the weight indication information.

I apologize for the one-off comment, but this page comes up as the first in Google asking for the manual for the Weigh of Life Scale. I have the scale and (after not being able to find the manual online) finally found my copy and uploaded it to the internet for the next person in need. So if you still need to know how to change the settings, the manual is located here:
