If you work in a food test kitchen consistency is the secret to a good recipe. Measuring by weight provides greater accuracy verses recipes outlined volumetrically in most situations for the kitchen. Humidity can affect volume; on a humid day, a cup of flour can weigh substantially more than on a dry day. A cup of nuts loosely poured compared to a cup tightly packed results in variations. That's why weighing ingredients can make a real difference in the outcome of your recipes.

The CAS SW Series are made in Korea and during production the scale is calibrated in Korea, although no calibration report is included with the scale. Your acceleration of gravity with altitude and latitude is probably different than Korea and this effect weight measurement. So your scale may need to be calibrated to weigh accurately.
Also most Weights & Measures Inspectors or inspectors with the Department of Agriculture require the scale be calibrated before you can use the scale for commercial weighing. Their principle goal is to make sure your scale is reliable, accurate, and do not assist with fraud. The operator should be paid for what is sold and the buyer should receive what they paid for. Some states will allow you to calibrate your own scale if you have the required calibration weights while other states require only a licensed scale company can perform calibration.
You want to investigate this before you purchase a scale and the specific requirements placing the scale in service. We recommend you contact your Weights & Measures Inspector and request the placed in service report (PISR) form to see the exact requirements.
