4.0 out of 5 stars Great grinder, but inconsistant for larger grinds, May 13, 2010
This review is from: Hario Skerton Ceramic Coffee Mill (100g) (Kitchen)
This is a fabulous grinder, hands down. Ceramic conical burrs literally last a lifetime, very easy to clean and adjust to very fine or bigger grind. Be aware though, the design of this grinder allows for too much play in the shaft for bigger grinds and becomes inconsistant. Google skerton hand grinder mod for a cheap effective modification that vastly increases stability of the upper burr. You cannot buy a better grinder for espresso. ZERO grind retention, very low static, and the glass catch bin fits a portafilter perfectly for mess free dosing.

This is a plate burr grinder, not a conical burr grinder. This uses two burr plates to grind the coffee, a conical burr grinder use three cone-shaped (hence, the word conical) burr units (they look like the head of a mining drill). Conical burr grinders are much more expensive than this unit.

I added the mod kit to mine Hario Skerton Upgrade Kit and it now does a pretty impressive course grind.

Incorrect. This is definitely a conical burr grinder.

Nonsense. This is 100% a conical burr grinder. I have never heard of a conical burr grinder having THREE cones...how would that even work?
