Well we love eating it.  My mother made 2 lbs for everyone.  We don't use that much by the seder but she know we like to eat afterwards.

The R Shayale's Kitchen subsidized catering package gave everyone 2 lb of charoses, according to menu.


Some people laid more bricks than others.

Rabbi Braunfeld, who wrote the book Moaznei Tzedek on the shiurim of matzo, has a few scales that he sells, all which are good for matzo. IIRC, Judaica Plaza sells them.

Instead of standard measurements like grams and ounces, it has Kezais and Kebeitzah?

No, it's a standard scale that he checked for accuracy. But it does include instructions for converting grams into kezeisim according to the prevalent shittos.

Practically how does one use a scale if they want to eat the Matzah they use at the Seder?

Do they weigh the entire Matzah then figure out what percentage of it they have to eat based on its total weight?
