Rhinowares Hand Coffee Grinder
Rhinowares Hand Coffee Grinder
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars but for heavy daily users like myself, I think the Rhinowares is well worth ..., 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this after wearing out the handle on a Porlex hand grinder through heavy daily use.

The design and manufacture of this grinder is basically the same as the Porlex, but with design improvements to fix several minor reliability and ergonomic issues. It is more expensive, but for heavy daily users like myself, I think the Rhinowares is well worth the price premium. The grinding process is smoother, faster, and more comfortable, and the redesigned handle attachment will not progressively loosen over time.

The only drawback is that the Rhinowares grinder is slightly too wide to fit inside the plunger of an Aeropress (which the Porlex will do).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, and exactly as advertised, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a portable hand grinder to accompany my Aeropress, and the Porlex Tall Hand Grinder has exceeded my expectations in all respects.

The industrial design is attractive, the engineering of the internal mechanism is simple and reliable, the materials and workmanship are very high, the process of hand grinding is easier than expected (due to the good leverage created between the end of the handle and the center of the ceramic mill, and the grind adjustment allows me to get the perfect grind for the Aeropress.

With the handle removed, the mill will fit neatly inside the plunger of the Aeropress (protruding slightly), which is convenient for packing or travel.

Other reviews have noted the lack of English instructions. This is true, but the mill is fairly self-explanatory. Beans in the top, adjust grind with the screw on the bottom, grind, and empty grounds. Loosen the grind screw completely, and the mechanism completely disassembles into a few simple parts for cleaning.

I have not had any issue with the handle coming off the top whilst grinding. Although there is no means to secure it, the nut the handle sits on is long enough that simply pushing the handle down all the way before grinding is enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars These are good gloves at a good price, 24 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The gloves are not amazing in any way, but they are convenient, reliable, and affordable.

The unpowdered is handy for use while cooking, so you don't get glove powder in your food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy, accurate, and good value for money, 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was in the market for an in-oven cooking thermometer. After reading the reviews of many such products, it seemed that all suffered from poor reliability and accuracy. I happened to see this product, and even though it is not for in-oven use, I decided to purchase it for backup/calibration of the in-oven thermometer I finally selected.

Although this thermometer only has a single function (degrees Celcius) it performs it exceedingly well. Measurements are fast and highly accurate. Ice water reads 0.0C +/- 0.1, and boiling water 100.0C +/- 0.1 .

The food probe is high-quality, easy to use, easy to clean. The display unit is small, but easy to read. Together, they tuck away easily in a drawer for storage.
