Grinding quality

When I went to test the grinder, it proved to be a great product. The grind was really fine and allowed for plenty of herb to fit into the grinder. The grinder turned smoothly and scored in the average range for the turning motion and it gave a decent finished product. There are grooves that are around the teeth where some herb managed to get stuck in it, but a little cleaning and it was fine.

Materials

The platinum grinder is made out of anodized aluminum, which will give you a nice light weight, but durable grinder and the coating prevents from any peeling or flaking of the outer coating. This is great because it means that you will get a grinder that will work through a lot of grinds, and it is strong and light weight, which will give you a top quality product. The grinder isn’t just one piece of aluminum; the teeth are actually a different piece of aluminum that is attached to the outer shell. The four pieces of the grinder all fit together nicely and smoothly, and the bottom part has a stainless steel screen that will filter out even the finest pollen. The grinder also has neodymium magnets that will give you a decent seal while you are grinding.

Design

The design of this herb grinder is quite important for a lot of reasons, including the quality of the grind and the product. The platinum grinder allows you to have great grinds over and over again. It comes in four pieces that all screw together, with a lid, teeth, screen, and pollen catcher in various pieces. It is 2.5 inches in diameter, which will give you plenty of room to put your herb in to be ground. It has 49 teeth that will grind, which are diamond shaped for a great cut.

Pros:

  • Great cut
  • Strong
  • Dependable
  • Decent price

Cons:

  • None that could really be found except for the sticking of the herb to the teeth.

The platinum grinder is a great mid-range choice. I was impressed with amount of teeth that were diamond shaped and the smooth turning, but I would prefer to have a more of a solid construction instead of two pieces that you get with this grinder. If you are looking for something in the middle of the line, then you should go with the Platinum Grinder.
