I recently had the pleasure of trying the classic herb grinder, and as far as I'm concerned it's the best grinder out there. I don't even need to consider others. Golden Gate states on the product page:
Our grinders are built to last and are very durable. If you are looking for a quality herb grinder, without the huge price tag then you have to check out Golden Gate Grinders Herb Grinder. It is on sale online at Amazon.com for only $30 with Free Shipping for a limited time only.
The grinders are made with aircraft grade aluminum that’s harder than the fist of Chuck Norris and sharper than Einstein in his prime.
I'm not even sure what aircraft grade aluminum is, but it sounds cool. And this is probably why the grinder has a nice weight to it. Just sitting in your hand it feels quality, and I don't have to worry about it slipping away or someone bumping me and off goes the grinder. It's heavy duty and certainly feels that way in my hands.
The lid has teeth on the underside and a magnet around the rim to help keep the lid on and everything inside fresh. Be careful with the pieces with teeth - if you stick your finger in there you can feel just how sharp the teeth are even though they aren't knife-like.
The chamber for the herbs and whatnot is pretty big, and there's a mesh pollen catcher at the bottom which is really cool. As for what you can grind - seeds, nuts, garlic cloves, cinnamon sticks, and of course medical marijuana. This grinder is the #1 selling item for spice graters on Amazon. It can handle a variety of things and you can also leave your grounds inside it and rest assured they'll keep fresh thanks to the magnetized pieces.
This grinder is great and I expect it will last a lifetime considering how durable and quality it is. It's also very affordable in comparison to other grinders that claim to be top of the line, so you're getting a great value too.
