Excellent, and exactly as advertised,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Porlex JP 30 Stainless Steel Coffee Grinder (Japan import) (Kitchen & Home)
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.
