What Kitchen Scale Do Chefs Use At Home?

jkhdsf | Mar 29, 201212:20 PM     61

It's my birthday today and I'm going to get a kitchen scale!

My first thought was "well, what do restaurants use?" but of course, I do not make recipes designed to feed 250 people so I won't need to be measuring that kind of volume.

So, what kitchen scale do chefs/cooks use, at home?

My requirements:
Digital
Tare Feature
Metric/Imperial switch button
Buttons don't have space around them where flour can get in
Weighs small enough to measure a bit of spice, and large enough to measure an armful of lemons
