Hario Ceramic Coffee Mill Skerton Review
Taking anywhere between 30 seconds to six minutes, the Hario Ceramic manual grinder isn’t super slow. It just isn’t as fast as some electric grinder. It is a great alternative and offers more benefits than most people are acutely aware of. This Hario Ceramic Coffee Mill Skerton Grinder is an excellent choice for those who want to own a high quality grinder but find the current models quite pricey. It can grind beans for an expresso, though some customers complain that it is not the best option for finer grinds.
– grinds evenly and more consistently than some electric models
– Simple design and versatile
– 100 grams grounds capacity
– Grinding takes muscles
– It’s not fast enough
– A bit of a learning curve
This manual coffee grinder gets one better over electric coffee grinders with its versatility and its efficiency with coarser grinds. We found out that it’s a much better alternative with its grind consistency. It has more positive reviews from French press and drip coffee drinkers than from espresso lovers.
It is quite simple in design and portable. It’s a manual model so you would have to expend some amount of energy to get it going. It uses a bit of muscles especially at the forearms and also takes between 30 seconds to six minutes depending on the grind and the quantity.
This manual coffee grinder comes with grind settings but it doesn’t come with a user manual. Most customers said they found helpful videos on how to use it on YouTube. When it comes to cleaning, you can take the grinder apart and put it in the dishwasher but most users advise you rinse it with warm water only and you are done.
The Hario Ceramic Coffee Mill Skerton fits right into a drawer or cupboard and those without much storage space love its portability.
This grinder doesn’t come with a manufacturer’s warranty but the distributor can offer a limited warranty, as long as you buy from a reputable retailer online.
