Update: Since I posted this video Hario has added a silicone lid and bottom cap to this grinder. Both are very helpful - the lid keeps the beans from bouncing out while you grind and the cup on the bottom helps to hold it firmly on the counter when you grind.
We've been using this hand grinder for about a year and love it more and more all the time. At first we found it somewhat annoying because it seemed to take forever to grind the morning coffee, but now we find that it's a great reminder to sloooow down a little - and honestly, it really only takes a minute. But it's become somewhat of a morning meditation. There aren't any real instructions that come with it, so it took me a frustrating half an hour to figure out how to set the grind size. I thought it might be nice to share what I learned to save others the annoyance, so I got out my video camera this morning and put together this product overview along with instructions on setting the grind size.
PS - It always makes my day to know that people find these reviews helpful. If you'd also like to ask a question or leave a comment I usually respond the same day, so if you have a question or comment (even if it's just to say, Hi!") feel free to post it below.
EDIT: ON 1/15/16 I ORDERED ANOTHER ONE FROM AMAZON. I MADE SURE TO CHOOSE A SELLER WHO WAS AMAZON AND FULFILLED BY AMAZON. I GOT EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECTED. A GENUINE HARIO SKERTON WITH ALL ACCESSORIES. I'M VERY PLEASED NOW. FOR EVERYONE READING THIS REVIEW - MAKE SURE TO ORDER FROM THE AMAZON SELLER/FULFILLED BY AMAZON. As for the grinder itself. I will definitely be modding the lower bearing, as there is a ton of wobble/play in the shaft as you grind, causing inconsistencies. I'll order from Orphan Espresso since there is only one other bearing kit sold on amazon and it doesn't include the washer replacement and OE went through the trouble of creating a very good tutorial video on the mod.
The thing is, if you're planning on brewing more than a cup at a time, it does take time and frankly can wear you out. I've been using the mill to grind coffee for use in a French Press, which highlights another shortcoming that has been mentioned by many reviewers. That is, when using it to grind coarser coffee (as for a press), the grinds can be inconsistent in size. That seems to be a result of two things: when you loosen the burr enough to produce the larger grinds and then turn the crank, the play in the axle moves the shaft back and forth allowing grinds of different sizes to get through.
Here's what I did. Removed the crank handle and replaced it with a "connecting nut", which is basically a nut about one inch long that fits the shaft. The size you need is metric 6 (or M6). It cost me $1 at a local hardware store. When I'm ready to grind the coffee, I put in the beans, put the cover on and attach my cordless drill to the connecting nut. It used to take more than 6 minutes to grind enough coffee for three cups by hand and now it takes no more than 90 seconds. Another benefit of this method is that the constant downward pressure of the drill on the shaft while grinding (as opposed the side to side pull of the crank) results in grinds that are very consistent in size - even when producing a course grind for a French Press!
Obviously, don't go full-speed on the drill. A slow and steady speed will do the job and not damage the beans or the grinder.Read more ›
One thing I would suggest for anyone buying one of these: visit your local hardware store and get a split-ring lock washer (preferably stainless steel) to put under the top cap that screws down on top of the crank handle. The top cap seems to loosen easily and repeatedly during the grinding process, which probably puts needless wear and tear on the grinder handle and shaft, as well as the plastic bearing that holds the shaft. Adding a lock washer has solved this issue for me.
I can't tell you what size to buy, unfortunately. I just found one that fit, and didn't make note of the size. It cost all of 20¢, including sales tax.
