I received a Porlex Mini for Christmas last year. I use it when traveling or camping and so far I haven't cleaned it.

Unhookthestars Said:

-Porlex vs. Hario -- Hario wins only on Capacity:  52 g of beans vs. Porlex's 30 g.  Weight:  Porlex is lighter, 180 g vs. 215 g.

Mine weighs 181g -- without the handle. But I kind of need the handle to turn the grinder.
With the handle it weighs 234g.

I finally cleaned my Porlex grinder after 8 months of intermittent use for travel and camping.

I knew the burrs were somewhat stained and thought I could just run hot water and some dishsoap through it. But when it became clear that there were some trapped grounds inside that wouldn't wash out I disassembled the grinder. I was surprised to discover a substantial quantity of grounds had collected in between the "washer" and inner burr. There probably isn't enough exchange to affect the freshness of a grind but I found the idea of months old coffee grounds in there is a little repulsive. I'll be cleaning it more regularly now, thank you.
