How do I test a new kitchen scale, and do you like this Salter?

I bought this Salter today:

http://www.amazon.com/Salter-Electron...

$30 at Bed Bath and Beyond, plus I had one of their 20% off mailers, so it was actually cheaper than Amazon.

I love that it's so small and has the tare function, but now I'm wondering if people have tips on how to test the accuracy of a new scale.

I've measured everything in my kitchen: the 5 lb sack of flour, 1 lb pack of pasta, etc. The readins are all someting like 5.1 pounds, 1.1 pound. I assume that includes the packaging.

So I know my scale's not way off, but what can I weigh to test it more finely?
