A&D Waterproof Scale Selected as Finalist in FER Magazine Smallwares Competition

MILPITAS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- A&D's HLWP Waterproof Digital Scale was chosen as one of the finalists in the Foodservice Equipment Reports' 9th Annual Smallwares & Tabletop Competition which features the latest in new and innovative foodservice products. "When it comes to the Smallwares Competition, it seems the judges' eyes are always caught and held by products that combine effectiveness, durability and food safety," according to Janice Cha, FER Senior Editor.

After submerging the HLWP in a bucket of water, the judges were impressed that the scale continued to function flawlessly after all the dunking. The HLWP's stainless steel, waterproof, and dustproof (IP-67) construction allow it to be used in any washdown environment, including commercial kitchens. The rugged design protects the scale from mishandling and accidental drops. The Auto-Power-off feature helps conserve battery life.

Units of measure can be selected from lbs, lbs-oz, oz, and grams. The HL-3000WP models have a capacity of 6.6 lb (3 kg) with a resolution of 0.002 lb allowing the user to maintain precise portion control. HLWP Portion Control scales are NSF listed. Legal-for-trade certified (NTEP) models are also available.
