How do I tare (zero out) the scale?


You will need to weigh your wax or fragrance before you begin your candle making projects. To get an accurate measurement, "tare" or "zero out" the scale which will subtract the weight of the container you're using. Here's how to do it:

  1. Turn on the scale and wait for it to register zero.
  2. Place your empty pot on the scale and wait for it to register the weight.
  3. Touch the on/off/tare button one time. The scale should register zero again.
  4. Now when you add the wax or fragrance, you will just get the weight of the materials and not the weight of the container.
