The Salter Orb Mechanical Kitchen Scale is a quality product which, if used in accordance with the following instructions, will give you years of efficient and reliable service. Therefore, please read this instruction leaflet carefully.
ZEROING AND WEIGHING
Place the empty pan provided on the scale and check that the pointer is at the zero mark before weighing. To adjust the pointer to zero; slowly turn the rotating knob located on the top or rear of the scale then tap the pan gently to settle the mechanism. Re-adjust if necessary. Please note, some models have a sliding tab on the front or side of the scale instead of a rotating knob.
Note: For best results when weighing, always add ingredients to centre of the pan.
CLEANING AND CARE
- To prevent damage DO NOT:
a. stand scale or bowl near an oven or other direct source of heat
