An when it comes to the kitchen and it is very much different than a or a. A grinder has similar mechanisms to it but they work differently than other kitchenaid tools. It is the exact reason that any joint rolled burns so evenly and why all soups are so consistent with their level of deliciousness. In technical terms an herb grinder is a device in the shape of a cylinder that is divided into at least two halves and contains sharp teeth that shred the materials inside when closed and being twisted. Herb grinders on the market are normally made from a kind of or even some. Each of these types of grinders has their own set of pros and cons and they each have a bunch of different categories to consider and choose from.
For example there are herb grinders that have one chamber, there are grinders that have two chambers and there are even some grinders that have three chambers. These grinders can be rotary, electric or even bullet and then you also have to consider the size of the grinder. One of the last things you should check is how many teeth there are and sharp the teeth are. Grinders that only have one chamber tend to be the least favorite grinder out there. The herb gets placed between the two halves and it wastes too much kief in the end as well as it just creates a basic feeling that does not make shredding herbs a good experience like it potentially can be with other herb grinders that are out there. Most recommended one chamber grinder is the Crowned Skull Herb Grinder made by Bi-Win because it is easy to rotate and the teeth never dull.
Other types of grinders and what is best recommended for them:
- Three chamber grinder – This grinder is the most commonly used because of how well it preserves the kief, the most recommended three chamber herb grinder is the aluminum one made by Fairy Dust.
- Electric Grinder – Comes with a small plug that goes into the power outlet and attachment to the container, it kind of works like a blender but it is a lot smaller; the most recommended electric meat grinder is the one made by Compact Electric because not only are the blades sharp but they rotate very fast.
- Plastic Grinders – Even though they work well at finely shredding the materials put inside, they are not widely liked by consumers; however the most recommended plastic grinder is a four piece from evolve industries that have a screen and a place for your stash to go.
- Wood Grinder – They tend to be very appealing to the eye but they are usually only one chamber, the most recommended wood grinder is the one from bubble star because of the design on the outside.
- Rotary Crank grinder – This grinder works by on the inside rotating when the handle on the outside gets turned, go with a four piece hand operated one.
- Bud Grater – Great for shredding herbs, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, other vegetables and big buds of marijuana, go with the handheld grater from TulasiLeaf.
- Bi-Grinder – This type of grinder has two sets of teeth in it so not only does your material get grinded more thinly but it gets grinded up faster, look for herb grinders that look like poker chips and come with a pollen scrapper.
- Giant Herb Grinder – Really just meant if you need to grind up a massive amount of an herb at once, go with the four inch four piece that is extra-large from cnc.
- Bullet herb grinder – Either it is two chambers or three chambers and on the outside it looks like a bullet and has a really advanced mesh screen in it, the two inch revolver bullet grinder that is made out of aluminum and is three pieces is the best choice for this category. Herb grinders are not just meant to be used in the kitchen but whether or not if it is used in the kitchen or not it will still get the job done of crushing up the content that you put inside and when you go to use it you can ensure consistency and quality. The choice is just up to you based on personal preference.
