*one quick work of advice, do not run the metal parts under water and if you do pat them dry as soon as possible because it is prone to rust. I would recommend a damp towel to remove any particles in the hopper and ceramic burr. Obviously it would be safe to wash the glass jar under water assuming you take all the metal parts off. This I do recommend doing because after a while, the coffee that gets left behind will have this funky smell to it. Coffee is a spice and eventually it will start to smell like one if not cleaned every so often.
I started looking into hand grinders for a couple of reasons.
1.) I had a blade grinder that I didn't like
2.) I had a Capresso Infinity burr grinder that I do like, but is loud and wakes up the whole family
3.) I like experimenting with coffee brewing, and hand grinders were a new toy for me to try out.
I picked this particular grinder because it not only met my needs, but looked great on top of it. It wasn't something I'd have to hide away in a cabinet (which is a hassle for something I use multiple times daily) because it's attractive design suited it well to my counter top.
It does what it's supposed to do, in my opinion, which is grind smaller quantities of coffee consistently and (relatively) quietly. I grind two big scoops of beans at a time, which is enough to make one large pourover serving for myself (no one else in the house drinks coffee, another bonus to the small hand grinder).
Clean-up was a breeze. Pretty much just wipe it down with a paper towel and it's good to go.
The big drawback was the stability. It's an awkward shape and difficult to hold flat on the counter while grinding. It frequently tries to tip over to one side or the other, often resulting in spillage of beans from the uncovered reservoir. The mechanism also occasionally spits bean fragments out of the top of the grinder. This all leads to a lot of beans/fragments finding their way all over the kitchen.
In the end, I decided to keep this grinder because it does a great job grinding, but I have added a Porlex Mini Stainless Steel Coffee Grinder as my go-to daily grinder - more contained, equally consistent grind, and actually even quieter than this Hario. I still think Hario makes great products (their pourover unit is my brewer of choice), but I think this particular grinder is just a hair too far on the form vs function scale.
For infrequent use or if style is most important, you will do just fine with this grinder, but if you drink a lot of coffee and are looking for efficiency and excellent functional design, check out the Porlex Mini Stainless Steel Coffee Grinder .

There is a plastic dust-cap for when not in use that can also be used when grinding to prevent little bits from flying out, but it will tend to fall off if you use it for that. There's also a cork stopper that seals the top so that excess ground coffee stays fresh, making it really useful if you want to grind a bunch of beans in advance. 10/10, glad I bought this one rather than many other manual grinders I saw around.
Cons: What drove me mad was the ridiculous domed shaped cheap plastic afterthought of a lid that you place on top of the bean receptacle when grinding, which flies off after a few turns of the handle. Consequently I often ended up chasing escaping beans across surfaces and floor. Also, towards the end of the grind process, small bean shards also flew out across surfaces, making the whole process very tiresome. I also found holding this model in place slightly uncomfortable due to its large circumference. So be warned. There is a newer version, the CMHN-4, which appears to have addressed the lid problem, but cant say more about this version as have not tried it.. I have given up with mine and bought a Hario MSCS-2TB which is superb.
