Hario 2X Medium Glass Hand Coffee Grinder : Very good Burr coffee grinder.

Manual Grinders
1

Very nice little coffee mill. It’s practical, sturdy, looks good and seems to be well made. Functional and simple with no frills and does the job. It has the advantage that the coffee is collected in a glass jar, which comes with a screw-down stopper. There’s no mess and you can see what you are doing. The fineness of the grind can be adjusted relatively easily – you have to unscrew the nut that secures the handle and then turn a knurled knob clockwise or anti-clockwise depending on whether you want coarser of finer coffee. The grind takes a modicum of effort. If you are doing just enough for one or two cups there’s no difficulty. If you were grinding enough for a few days it’s would get quite tiring.

The master of hand grinders. The hario skerton is everything it is set up to be – a good strong reliable manual grinder, that is suitably portable to take travellingthe hopper is large enough for a sizeable grind – i use this daily for a 6 cup cafetiere, and there is more than enough room for something double the sizethe inclusion of a seal for the jar means you can take beans with you when you travel and keep them air tight and fresh when you are not using themthe adjustable bur gives you total control over your grinding – be aware, though, as with all hario gear, the instructions are in japanese, you will need to google for the settings you are looking for based on the grind/brew you are aftera must have, even more so when it is on special (as it was when i got this).

  • Ergonomic Design

Does the job perfectly, seems well built, robust and the metal and plastic parts feel like good quality. I used cheap electric coffee grinders (the ones with the blade) and they always gave me inconsistent results: by the time i got everything ground to the desired size, part of the coffee became dust clogging my espresso machine. You know the feeling if you are reading this. ;)this grinder gives consistent results every time. Changing the grind size is easy and makes a real difference. My grinder came with full english instructions with photos exlaining disassembly, cleaning and changing the grind size – despite other reviews here. For operating the grinder you need a good grip on the bottom part but turning is not too hard and you have enough coffee for a single shot just under a minute. (i’m using a rather fine setting and it takes about 90 turns)all in all, i’m very happy with this grinder and i would definitely recommend it.

2XHario Medium Glass Hand Coffee Grinder with Ceramic Burrs, Clear : Does the job, good value for money, but uncomfortable to hold and handle loosens easily. . I’m giving it 4 stars because it is cheap, but it has quite a few flaws. I have hario’s wooden grinder also, and though it holds a lot less beans and has other flaws, it is easier to hold and easier to grind with. Pros:-holds quite a lot of beans and grinds-grinds fairly quickly-decent grind for espressocons:-the handle loosens very quickly and you need to constantly tighten the bolt at the top-it is fairly wide so it’s not very comfortable to hold-with harder beans it gets jammed easily and makes grinding very difficult (because of the problems noted above)-as pointed out by other users, the burrs will not stay in line if you want a coarser grind so this is not suitable for getting an even medium-coarse grind. Overall i prefer hario’s wooden hand grinder, but this is still good value for money despite these issues.

Things we liked about the hario skerton: low static, due to the glass grinds receptacle ceramic conical burrs are excellent quality we were able to grind consistently for espresso which we considered somewhat of a miracle quiet (which is nice) but slow to grind easy to take apart and clean, then re-assemble no electronic parts to worry aboutgreat for espresso grinding quality, durable plastic parts including snap on lidwe love it.

Excellent piece of equipment, coffee is consistent on lower settings however there is quite a bit of wobble on the coarser settings which can be easily fixed with a mod (which i highly recommend doing). Very easy to clean and use, but can be a little uncomfortable in hand due to it’s size. I found that it doesn’t grind fine enough for espresso although its perfect for anything from moka pots to french press and aeropress. Overall i’m very happy with it and can recommend it to anyone that wants a good fresh cup of coffee.

Be prepared to take your time with making your coffee. I’ve been making lots of cold brew, which means i’ll grind a whole bag of beans in one sitting. Luckily i love podcasts, so this is a good time for that.

Also, could do with better instructions or a training course. When sussed fine but skip the later gym session.

Great quality, excellent grind consistency. Did a long research before buying this grinder and i definitely did the right choice. It’s the perfect burr hand grinder – great value, excellent built quality, and very consistent grind. Have used the generic cylindric grinder before and this one is incomparably better. Very neat system for adjusting grind fineness that locks the burr in place properly. Look no further as there wont be a better option for such price.

I love the smell of fresh coffee, just need a firm grip when grinding.

A great price for this small grinder. My only issue is that adjusting the grind is a pain. I would get some cheap coffee beans to practice on before you pull out the good stuff. But for £10 you cant complain really.

Great value, perfect output. Initially a bit confusing, but once you get the hang of it, it does grind amazingly consistently with infinite settings, as it’s hand calibrated with no presets. Dishwasher safe, or you can clean by grinding rice through it. You would have to pay some serious money to get an electric grinder with an equivalent quality conical ceramic burr and such consistent output. Even though it seems like a pain to grind for each cup, realistically it only takes one minute. I drink 3-4 cups a day, so that’s less than 5 minutes grinding. The fact it’s hand grinding means little heat is generated, so combined with an aeropress is makes the smoothest coffee ever, with no trace of bitterness. I find that turning it 3 notches (or one half turn) from minimum gives the best aeropress grind.

It needs and effort but produces a good grind. Worth the effort and saves electricity.
