Both of mine auto tare if I turn them on with the tray in place.
I also love my scale, and very much recommend them to anyone regularly brewing a variety of loose teas.
I read somewhere that a dime was 2.25 grams, but they seem to vary from dime to dime.
There's a nice sale on gram scales at
http://www.oldwillknottscales.com/index ... ProdID=115
for $9.90 plus shipping (probably another $6 to $7). It only weighs to .1 gram (unlike the Upton and some others which go .01 grams). This is the discontinued model replaced by the one in the link Chip gives below. For the cost conscious, I'd forego the calibration weight.
