Tare Definition

Tare is the weight of a container that is deducted from the gross weight to obtain net weight. Most digital scales allow you to perform this task efficiently by placing the empty container on the scale and pressing the tare button.

Then, when the container is filled, only the weight of its contents is displayed.
