Not being someone who usually uses Americanisms - this title seems to sum up this item.
I have a small kitchen, and the scales are often hidden behind something, pushed to the back - read can't find them.
This item, being wall-mounted is in no danger of being in/down the back of/behind ... It is NEAT! It doesn't take a lot of wall space, was easy to install and using it was no problem.
Even better, because I bought the item for its practicality, without realising that it is also a digital clock. Great! Very useful, practical and looks good.
