The thing is small - less than 3"x3" and less than 1/4" thick. Easily can fit in a shirt pocket. It fits in your palm of your hand. The round weight is the size of a nickel.
I clip on a small snack baggy then fill it with pellets until it meets the proper weight + 1 gram. The baggy is ~1gm.
I usually use the gram scale because it has smaller divisions. One could use the oz side just add alittle past the amount needed to make up for the baggy.
Yes - I used it with whole hops. I used sandwich bags. I could fill one full of fresh dried hops up to the point where you can't fit anymore, barely zippable. Then verified the weight at 1/4 oz. Nearly spot on everytime.
I don't know what I would have done without it, I had it since I started this hobby.
