Sorry for the delay - I have been away. Yes, the scale measures up to 5kg - I have never tried it though. Scale quite small though fits my medium pot on top and I can still see the display, much larger and you might not. I hope this helps.
I can't remember! The scales are using batteries so quickly ( I think it might now be faulty) that I can't check as the battery is dead and I haven't a replacement at the moment.
