Time more Black Mirror BasicPlus is so easy to use. I'm able to fit it under my espresso machine group as well as using it for pour over (Hario V60) and French Press. Because it can weigh up to 2 kg it's also useful for other purposes. So versatile, accurate and consistent.
Coming from a Hario v60 scale, I feel that this scale is a major upgrade. Its response time is slightly faster than the Hario. And it is just as accurate. Its design makes it more waterproof than the v60 for those accidental pours on top of the scale. The autostart timer is a fantastic feature for pourovers. Since it is not easy to turn on and off, this feature would not be good if you want to time both pourovers and espressos. The bad things are that the LED display looks a bit blurry through the scale lid but it very readable. It also feels weird pressing buttons that are on the weighing portion of the scale so that the scale responds as you press the button. Does not change the functionality but I am just more cautious hitting the buttons.
This scale is really nice and it works great. So easy to use. Really nice light touch functionality. I gave this scale 4 stars because it only measures in grams. It doesn't have a built in ounce conversion, which I don't really need, but it would be nice.
This thing is the best bang for your buck hands down! I've been using it to make pour-overs every day for the last 3 months and it's phenomenal. It's accurate, durable, and easy to use. Definitely one of the best scales in its price range.
Cute, well made, I can now hit shots that are sometimes bang on a 2:1 ratio of espresso output to ground coffee dose input. This changed the game.
