That can be stuck to cabinet doors at eye level and that comes on when you touch the scale and that have big tare and unit buttons.

The scale is just a big aluminum puck.

edit:

This design would solve the problem of having to bend down to see the readout, and the problem of the container covering the readout.

There's no reason the unit couldn't have a readout on the scale, i just thought the puck would be slick-looking.

There are myriad ways the second readout could be acheived (tablet in a holder on the cabinet door, light projection onto the cabinet door, coded chimes, etc.)

       I was going to say, it would not be very convenient trying to place the item(s) to be weighted onto something stuck to a cabinet door at eye level.

       With no display elegance, this could feed to the fridge or microwave's display.

       //big rare and unit buttons//   

       ?   

       ... and what [poc] said.

       I assume this means "tare".   

       There's a trend of having instrumentation that off-loads processing power/screen to smart phones etc. Such as, oscilloscopes, FLIR cameras and so on. I can see why, it saves the manufacturer bill-of-materials money, but I'd rather have a dedicated screen until things can beam directly into my brain.

       Maybe the idea is a stater for the dishwasher?

       Stater? Greek coin weighing about the same as a Phoenician shekel?   

       Or maybe stator, as in rotor / stator?   

       Not trying to be funny - I really have no idea what is meant here.

       //I really have no idea what is meant here//   

       Marked for tagline?

       <wry smile> Stater. It states* the state the dishwasher is in. </wry smile>   

       *or tries to, by supplying weight data via wireless.
