As you can see on our home page, marijuanagrinder.com is focused on helping you find the perfect grinder for your herb needs. Today we are going to take a look at the Chromium Crusher Herb Grinder, which is a solid choice for those looking for a cheap grinder. Chromium Crusher has been in the grinder game for a while and they have built a solid reputation with their products. Let’s take a look at the grind quality, materials, design, and price a little more closely to give you a better idea about what the Chromium Crusher Herb Grinder brings to the table.
When we tested the Chromium Crusher we found that this grinder can grind herb very well for its price. The finished product once ground was fluffy and ready to smoke or vape. The grinding mechanism did leave the ground herb a little uneven, but it was nothing to complain about or even something most users will notice. The turning motion of the weed grinder was above average, and feels nice and smooth when in use.
The Chromium Crusher Herb Grinder is made of zinc alloy which is a heavier-weighted metal than aluminum. Because of this we would not recommend this grinder for those who are on the move. Zinc alloy is also cheaper than aluminum which partially explains the lower price of this weed grinder compared to some other options. Rest assured the zinc alloy is a much better option than any acrylic or wood grinder available. The grinder is made from two separate pieces of zinc alloy, which is apparent with the black color seen on the outside and gray color on the inside of the Chromium Crusher Grinder. This is fine and should last quite a long time, but not as long as those weed grinders that are made from a single piece of metal.
An herb grinder’s design has a huge impact on the grinder’s life span and grinding abilities. Chromium Crusher does well in both of these categories. The design of the grinder is solid and allows for each of the four pieces to fit snugly with the other. Chromium Crusher’s standard grinder size is 2.5 inches in diameter which we could consider a medium-sized herb grinder. Our biggest gripe about the design is the limited number of teeth. The Chromium Crusher sports only 24 teeth; for comparison, this is only half of what can be found on a Black Tie Grinder.
Where Chromium Crusher really excels is in the value department. You will be very hard pressed to find a better herb grinder for the price. Currently, the standard Chromium Crusher sells for only $12.50 on Amazon (See current price). This is likely the cheapest price for such a well-known weed grinder brand.
Overall, we feel that the Chromium Crusher’s biggest strengths are its materials and price point. Moving forward Chromium Crusher should look to increase the number of teeth on its grinders so that it can grind herb to a fine and even finish. Pick this one up if you need a good grinder and don’t want to spend more than $15.
