PRODUCT REVIEW: Piranha Grinders
Piranha Grinders are the best way to grind your herb. They are constructed from high-quality, durable materials that make them perfect for grinding herbs with every use. The heavy-duty diamond-shaped teeth on these grinders will shred through anything you put in it, making sure you have a smooth and even grind every time. These grinders come in 3 different sizes: small (4 inches), medium (6 inches), and large (8 inches). Piranha has been producing cannabis accessories since 1991, so they know what they're doing!
Piranha is a two-part grinder. The top part, the "teeth," are just over 1" wide and have sharp diamond teeth that work their magic on your herb so you can extract all of the goodness out of it.
The bottom part immediately catches your eye because its body is made from shiny metal with an engraved logo. The base is about 1" tall, half an inch wide, and has four powerful suction cup feet that are designed to keep the grinder in place securely while it's being used.
So no matter how hard or fast you twist during grinding, your Piranha will not move because of the mighty suction cups! There are six vent holes on the bottom of the base, which are purposeful for airflow, so your herb doesn't smolder while being ground.
There is a ring on the top part of the grinder with five posts and one larger post in the center. The posts are where you will find small holes to thread your pollen catcher, also known as the kief catcher, to keep all of that precious powder in one place when your grinder is not in use. There is a notch for removing or placing on the sifter mesh screen (more on this later).
The bottom part of the grinder features two small posts designed to secure your kief catcher. The kief catcher itself has a series of vertical slits, where all the pollen will fall into when you ground your herb. This is one of the most important parts because this is where you'll find that extra fire!
How it works:
To use this beast of a grinder, all you have to do is place your herb in the top part and twist the bottom part until your herb becomes powder. The more you grind, the more refined your final product will be! You have a choice of how fine you want it. Keep twisting. It couldn't be easier than that!
The sifter mesh screen is what allows you to have all of that kief in one place when your grinder is not in use. But how does it work? The idea behind the screen is simple: as your herb falls through, it will break up, but some particles will be too big to pass through the holes of the screen. These bigger particles will fall into the pollen catcher, also known as the kief catcher. The more refined your herb is ground before it enters this section, the higher quantity of kief you'll have in there!
- Quality material that is built to last:
This grinder is made from high-quality aircraft-grade aluminum alloy
The three magnets used to form a robust seal between the top and bottom parts of the grinder are extremely strong. They ensure that your herb stays secure while it's being ground, so no matter how hard you're twisting away, your herb will not fall out of this grinder!
- It's a 2-in-1 grinder that also has a pollen catcher:
The top part of the grinder is designed to efficiently grind your herb, which means all you have to do is apply some pressure and twist away for this bad boy to work its magic. You can choose how fine you want your herb to be by deciding how long you twist.
When your herb becomes a powder, turn the bottom part of the grinder upside down and collect all that kief from your pollen catcher. You can use that power in a variety of ways, including edibles or sprinkled on top of some more herbs while they're smoked! It all depends on how you like to get your smoke on.
- It's a customizable grinder:
Since the sifter mesh screen and the pollen catcher (also known as the kief catcher) can be removed, there is no need for an extra tool for cleaning! You can use a cotton swab wrapped around the paper clip to clean the inside of your grinder.
If you feel that there is no need for a pollen catcher because you don't smoke it, or if you want to have a larger space to put in some herbs so they can be ground at once, then this is the product for you! Since the pollen catcher and sifter mesh screen are removable, you can use them or remove them easily.
- It's easy to clean:
You can use a cotton swab wrapped around the tip of your paper clip to clean out any kief left in your pollen catcher with ease!
- The price tag may make your jaw drop:
Although it is made with high-quality materials and has many features, this grinder will cost you.
- It's a manual grinder:
If you have conditions that make it difficult for you to twist something with a lot of pressure, this grinder may not be right for you. Although it has a strong magnetic top and bottom part, so there is no chance of your herb falling out while you're grinding. This means that it takes a lot of effort to grind the herb, which some people may not be able to do.
Verdict:Grinders come in various colors, which is great because you can find one to match your style. The grinders are made from aluminum, so they will not rust, and they also have an easy-grip design to make them comfortable to hold while you use them. I would highly recommend these grinders if you're looking for something new!
