If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably noticed that most of the grinders out there are just not big enough. I’ve searched what seems like every corner of the web, and I’ve come up with a list of the best extra large grinders out there. This list is made up of only extra-large herb grinders. 4”/100mm+ only.
5. Hornet Grinder
The hornet grinder is a cheap grinder from China, and the price reflects this. For only $15 USD this is by far the cheapest grinder on this list and probably the cheapest 100mm grinder in the world. This grinder is sold from aliexpress.com. If you’ve ever used aliexpress.com you’re probably familiar with long shipping times, low prices, and cheap products. This grinder is made out of zinc alloy and is a three-piece. It does not have a crystal-catcher or a scraper and is only 38mm in height.
I would usually say stay away from this kind of grinder, but I bought myself one to test it out. Surprisingly, It’s not half bad. The teeth are sharp and it has worked great so far. If you’re in the market for a large grinder, but you don’t have the money for some of the others on this list, go for it! My guess is that this grinder will become sticky, as most cheap grinders do over time. But for $15 you can’t go wrong.
Coming in at number four is the Chromium Crusher. This grinder is around $80 on Amazon and is made out of zinc-alloy. It is 4 inches in diameter and it’s a 4-piece with a crystal catcher. Similar to the Hornet Grinder, this item has long shipping times. Even though it’s available on Amazon it’s still going to take around 3-4 weeks to deliver to the United States or Canada.
This is the “top of the line” grinder that you would find at your local convenience store. Although, it would probably be in the $150-$200 price range there. I have had the Chromium Crusher 2-inch grinder for the last few years, and it’s great. Reading some reviews, and doing some research around the web I’ve noticed that both of these grinders seem to have the same problem. The screen on this grinder just too fine. I find that a majority of the crystals get stuck or clogged in the screen rather than pass through it. Other than that, I have no complaints about this grinder at all. The Chromium Crusher is definitely not the best grinder out there, but it’s still pretty good.
Coming in at number three is the Large Space case grinder. This grinder is $120, 3.5” in diameter, and made out of aircraft-grade aluminum. This is a 4-piece grinder with a crystal catcher.
Before you tell me, I know, I broke my own rules. But I just had to include this grinder on the list. This grinder is one of my all-time favourites and at $120 It doesn’t break the bank. It isn’t something that you’re going to be able to keep in your pocket though, its 2.75” inches tall.
The Space case is one of the best grinders money can buy, and it’s pretty much guaranteed to get second looks from your friends. The magnets are heavy-duty, and the diamond teeth are razor sharp. For $120 this grinder is worth every penny.
And finally, the jumbo Santa Cruz Shredder. This grinder is 4 inches in diameter, has unique square teeth, and made with ultrasonically cleansed anodized aluminum.
I had a hard time deciding which grinder to put as number 1 on this list. The Space Case was a very close second. The Santa Cruz grinders are some of the best ever made! Although the 4-inch shredder is more of a novelty item because of its size, it is definitely the cream of the crop’ when it comes to large grinders.
The teeth on Santa Cruz Shredders are very unique. Unlike most grinders with diamond teeth, the teeth on shredders are square. This might make you think that the teeth don’t grind cannabis as well, but they definitely do. The Jumbo Santa Cruz Shredder is the most effortless grinding experience out of all the grinders I’ve ever used.
for $140, this really is the best grinder out there and if you have the money for it, this is a no-brainer.
Maybe this is a little biased because this is the grinder we sell, but it really is a great grinder and checks every box a good grinder is supposed to. Some of our grinders features:
- Easy to use
- Diamond teeth
- 4-inches in diameter
- Over 2-inches tall
- Works great after lots of use
- Has a crystal catcher & scraper
- Not too expensive
This grinder looks big on your table. Every time I’ve pulled this grinder out, friends have asked to look at it. Overall, you can not go wrong with one of our jumbo grinders.
