Even if you are set on a cool 2 piece grinder, you will face many options from size, blade setup, exterior design and more. Below we have compiled some useful information about these herb grinders so that you can shop educated.
Material in Question
You will face many options, even once you have zoned in on the 2 piece grinders. Options include the usual metal, plastic and wood materials found within all grinder categories. As usual, metal is best and will last the longest. Especially when the herb has no place to fall, more pressure is placed on the blades and plastic can easily crack.
In a 4 piece grinder, herbs get chopped and fall to the storage compartment below. But not with the 2 piece herb grinders, the herb stays in the grinding area and needs to be cycled out as it is ground. So grinding may take more finesse and it helps with the sharp and more advanced the blade systems.
Color & Design
All herb grinders are more or less designed to do the same thing, and often there is not much difference between them. Fortunately, if you like to get something unique, or find that cool design no one else has, you can find something. While browsing around you will find and can compare a ton of cool designs and color combos.
Diameter of Grinder
With a larger the diameter you will have more blades to dice to herbs, and more can be chopped at once. That can lead to faster grind times, plus larger diameters are usually easier to twist back and forth. While browsing among herb grinders you will notice the diameter can sometimes vary by a substantial or tiny amount.
