I have two digital scales, a my weigh KD 8000 and a Escali Model Pana V63. My hubby asked me to weigh some linguine. He likes to divide it since we are the only two in the household. I weighed the amount on the Escali, and then on the KD 8000. There was a difference in the ounces. One weighed at 8.1 ounces, and then the other scale weighed 8.5 ounces. I was surprised. I do use the batteries instead of the adapter. Has anyone heard of such a discrepancy between 2 scales? This is the first time I ever weighed anything using two different scales.
