The Hario Skerton hand grinder is what you would call a diamond in the ruff. It is sturdily built, the burrs are just what you'd expect-- great. The ease of use is almost elementary and you get premium burr ground coffee for sometimes 1/200 the price.
Negative Product Points
It's a little finicky trying to adjust the grind setting, and after about 5 minutes it gets tiring, but these downfalls are far overpowered by the pros.
The Hario Skerton hand grinder is what you would call a diamond in the ruff. I have been looking at electric burr grinders from Cuisinart, Nuova, and even considered dropping US $350 for a Rancilio grinder... Thank God I thought again. The Skerton is the answer to my prayers. It is a novelty and a useful item. I can see myself grinding good coffee with it until the burrs are worn thin...Considering they're ceramic, that will be a VERY long time. The grind adjustments are easy and intuitive, just take the handle off, spin, and off you grind. The process, while not quick, well worth it for the payout of consistently ground coffee for a fraction of the price.
