3 Answers

Split them into three groups of three, weigh two to determine the odd set out, then split that stack of three into three sets of one, and weigh two to find the single one out, requiring only two scale uses.

The above strategy works only if you know whether the odd item is lighter or heavier. If you do not know how it differs, you will need more scale uses.
