Crew Review: Ohaus HH120 & Salter Aquatronic Electronic Scales



Continuing in our search for the new scales we’re going to carry, we picked up 2 new ones to test out. Gail takes us through their features and demonstrates how they function.

    Oh dear… I really really really love your videos, but this one made my head hurt. You can't rest the portafilter handle on the table when weighting it. How would the scale know the weight if a part of the filterhandle is resting against the table?

    @ottoi Thanks for your feedback and your tips! We have settled on the scales we're going to carry, based on the variety of features, size, levels of measurement, responsiveness and accuracy. While we didn't use weights, we did weigh an item which we knew its weight based on our commercial shipping scale, which is calibrated regularly. – Kat

    @andrewreversethrustw We haven't – I'll put it on our list to see if it's something we can get here. – Kat

    @solidstream13 Yes — post shoot that is what we determined. – Kat

  • Seattle Coffee Gear - January 9, 2018 reply

    @thePowerPlant Sure – we'll put it on the list. – Kat

    Troy ounces and pennyweights are common measurements for gold, silver and other precious metals

  • Daryl Liggins - January 9, 2018 reply

    The little one gives an E because you are exceeding the max weight allowed by that scale.

    Would you guys consider the Pelouze scale that Edwin from Hario USA used. I have seen many baristas using them at competitions.

    @SchneiderStudios Gail is a co-owner and I am one of her many minions 🙂 – Kat

    @WarmProp I don't think so; the weights you're dealing with seem like they'd be addressed with the less precise…but I'm sure others have a different opinion. We're trying to find an easy, good solution for folks to either weigh out their beans or their grinds (depending on their pref/use)…a few more to test and then I think we'll be ready to make a decision 🙂 – Kat

    So what's the dealio between you guys, manager and owner?

  • WarmProp - January 9, 2018 reply

    Jeweler's scales max out pretty quickly it seems.

    Does it make a huge difference in accuracy if a scale can do two decimals instead of just 0.1? From making a shot point of view.

    @klarinetta Ha – we had to make up for lost time! 🙂 – Kat

  • Seattle Coffee Gear - January 9, 2018 reply

    @winelover215 Thank you! I will add it to our list 🙂 – Kat

  • Stefan Sigfinnsson - January 9, 2018 reply

    You are making those videos like there's no tomorrow

  • winelover215 - January 9, 2018 reply

    Check on the KINTREX SCL0640 – under 20 bucks and it does a great job. Has the nice tempered glass (iphone kinda look) platform that is big enough for a portafilter or pour over container yet not super big either.

  • Seattle Coffee Gear - January 9, 2018 reply

    @silentknight2112 Thank you for the info! I passed it along to Gail, too. Gail injured herself and had to have surgery but she's on the mend now 🙂 – Kat

    hey guys(or gals?) just wanted to let you know the smaller scale is a jewlers scale because penny and troy are measurements of precious metals ( Ex; i have one troy oz of gold i would like to sell or i have 3 penny of silver)… one penny is about 1.5 grams and one ozt (thats troy oz) is about 31 grams where as a troy pound is 370 grams i do believe and what happened to gail's arm? i hope shes ok.
