Cool Herb Metallic Grinders – Top 3 To Buy For Kief
Almost every seasoned stoner has had a bad experience with a grinder in the past. The cheap plastic grinders you can buy in markets and/or corner shops tend to get stuck really easily, they jam up and it’s really hard to open them up again, a load of your herbs end up getting stuck to the side and are a nightmare to scrape off, and they tend to be quite hard to clean. If you’re tired of sub-standard grinders and want something that will do your herbs justice, then you’ve come to the right place.
There is a massive online market for grinders where you can get basically any type of grinder you could imagine. Prices vary; you could order a cheap grinder for £2 or, for a more high-tech grinder, you can find them for as much as £60-100. With so many options you might not know where to start, but luckily we’ve compiled a review of some of the best affordable grinders available online.
When buying a grinder there are a few things you need to look out for.
- One feature that tends to be really popular is the ‘crystal catcher’. This is a section at the bottom of your grinder that will catch left over THC, and so instead of losing all that extra dust you can save it up and end up with enough for a few extra spliffs, thus ensuring you get the most for your money. Not all grinders have this feature, but if you’re willing to pay a bit more for it it really can make all the difference.
- The material the grinder is made out of can make a big difference to how well its going to perform. The cheapest grinders tend to be made out of plastic, but they don’t tend to be great quality and can become really hard to use. If you are looking to make a long-lasting purchase consider going for stainless steel or aluminium.
- Pricing is always going to be a big factor. Whilst it is always worth paying a bit more for a product that’s going to last rather than spending less on something cheap and breakable and then having to buy it again every few months, you also shouldn’t spend too much on a grinder. Unless you want something really futuristic, you should be able to find what you’re looking for for under £30.
Now you have a better idea of what to look for, let’s get started on our list of the three best grinders available online right now.
Thorinder Herb Grinder Review – Our Number 1
This grinder (VIEW PRICE HERE!) is an attractive little device with a deep purple interior that can be used for legal and not so legal herbs alike!
