I stand corrected. Here's the 5 lb. model.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I used to have a 5 lb. scale and I maxed it out all the time. Although I tend to make pretty large recipes :)
Ah gotcha. FWIW, we have an Oxo scale that I've never had any issues with (but we're an Oxo-obsessed family):
I use the OXO Good Grips 5-Pound Food Scale with Pull-Out Display. The pull-out display is really nice for weighing inside a 12qt Cambro, but if you every make 4 500g loaves at a time, it will max out.
You just need a scale with a pullout display.
I use OXO's 5 pound kitchen scale. Meets all the criteria you listed. OXO makes a more expensive 11 pound scale if you make large dishes or intend on weighing heavy pots.
Not sure if the scale you referred to before was for yourself or for your food... anyway, get a food scale. Something digital, in the $20-40 range, with 4 stars or better from Amazon. This way you know exactly your portion amounts.
