This is my fourth grind - got it in August of 2014, to keep at work (it replaced the Hario Mini that I sent to a friend). This thing is exactly like the bigger Porlex, but shorter (and has a black silicone band), so the review will sound familiar.
- Like the Hario Mini, this is small enough to grind directly into an Aeropress.
- Fits nicely in your hand, but this thing is TINY. It holds no more than about 2 TBSP of beans, and really is meant to make a single cup.
- Nice crank arm length.
- Black silicone band includes a little loop to hold the handle when it's not in use, but I found it a hassle.
- Outer body is all stainless steel, making it a durable choice for travel or everyday use.
- Easy-to-adjust grind mechanism (see below) - you twist a little clicky bolt on the bottom of the top chamber.
- Slightly better-than-average grind consistency
- Crank arm flies off for some people, though I never found it a problem.
- Like many small grinders, it is a little awkward to grind with it. It's short body makes it more awkward than the bigger Porlex.
- No way to "remember" your settings for different grinds, other than by counting clicks. Not a big deal if you don't plan to adjust it.
- Only slightly-better-than average grind consistency, and given it's price point ($35-$65 depending on the direction the wind is blowing, but usually around $45 or $50), I'd really like it to be better.
This is my current work grinder, except that since I'm currently working from home, it's sitting unused in a box of office supplies.
It really is a great little grinder (with an emphasis on little).
Oh, and Amazon carries some replacement parts.
