In this article, I will be reviewing five different cheap weed grinders with kief catcher that are currently available for purchase on Amazon. All of these grinders are not ridiculously expensive, but are good quality and what you would expect from a product that is going to cost you around fifty dollars and upwards.
There are some things that should be considered when buying a cheaper grinder, such as the fact that it may not last you a lifetime, as some of these products claim to do, and as far as how well a cheap grinder actually grinds the herbs, may not always be too amazing either. Although, fifty dollars for a grinder is quite a standard price, it’s not the most expensive but certainly isn’t one of the cheapest deals out there either. Some grinders you can purchase for under twenty dollars, but if you are looking for quality, you might as well spend a few extra dollars and purchase a great product. The cheap weed grinders that I discuss in this article are all very similar, but also have their good qualities and their bad qualities.

- 1 Cheap Weed Grinders With Kief Catcher
Cheap Weed Grinders With Kief Catcher
Product one: Space Case Grinder Large, Titanium.
This cheap weed grinder is made from titanium, which is different from the other four products that I have reviewed in this article. As it is made from titanium rather than the common alternative, which is aluminium, it is supposed to be very durable and the manufacturers claim that it will last you for a lifetime. It’s supposed to be a ‘smoker’s favorite’ because of how carefully it sifts and grinds the herbs.
This grinder is best used for grinding multiple herbs at once because of it’s larger size.
- As it is made from titanium, herbs will not stick to the grinder which means that it will be kept clean without you having to manually clean it. This is not the case with most grinders, most of them are constructed from aluminium, which means that the herbs stick to this material and they have to be manually cleaned on a regular basis.
- The large diameter of this product makes it easier to grind up anything larger or tougher.
- Again, because of it’s larger size, you can grind multiple herbs all at once.
- This grinder should last you for a very long time, as it is supposed to be made from very sturdy materials. Titanium is supposed to be much more durable than aluminium or plastic, meaning that you don’t have to worry about this grinder cracking or breaking any time soon.
- The teeth on the grinder are very sharp, which allows the herbs to be shed very finely.
- It comes with a triangle pick to make sure that all excess herbs can be removed from the collection chamber, this allows for easy clean up too.
- There has been reports of some of the teeth breaking off after only a few weeks/months of use, so this product is maybe not as durable as the company sells it to be.
- It has also been reported that the black paint finish chips off, which causes problems, as the paint chippings can fall into the freshly ground herbs.
- As the grinder is larger, it is not compact and may be hard to travel with or store.
- It’s a little more pricey than some of the other herb grinders, due to it being larger and being made from titanium, which is a more expensive material.
- It doesn’t seem to have any warranty guarantees, so if this product breaks, the company or Amazon will not replace it or fix it.
Product two: Platinum Grinders, Large Aluminium Grinder with Pollen Catcher.
This grinder is made from aircraft grade aluminium. It has a magnetic lid and a textured bottom to stop you from dropping it and is really light.
This cheap weed grinder is probably best for if you are on the go, because it is light and small which makes it very compact.
- Made from aircraft standard aluminium, so it should be very durable and should not be breaking or chipping any time soon.
- It’s very lightweight so it is easy and comfortable to carry and travel with.
- It is also small which makes it convenient and easy to store.
- The grinding action is very smooth, and makes the herbs very finely shredded.
- The magnetic lid helps keep the herbs secure, even when the grinder is upside down. The textured bottom will also ensure that you do not drop the grinder whilst you are trying to open it, this feature is great because it prevents you from potentially breaking the grinder or possibly spilling the freshly ground herbs all over.
- The teeth are diamond shaped, which is meant to provide a smoother and sharper grind. I have not seen any other grinders that are like this, this seems like a very unique feature for this particular product.
- It’s also extremely affordable as it is at a discounted price at the moment, unlike some other grinders that are on the market.
- It has a pollen catcher.
- It also comes with a warranty in case you happen to damage or break this grinder, Amazon or the company will replace or fix it.
- You will have to clean this grinder on a regular basis as the herbs will stick to the sides of the grinder, due to the material being what it is.
- The grinder may struggle to grind anything other than a coarse grind. This is probably due to it’s smaller size.
Product three: Space Case Grinder Medium.
This grinder is also made from aluminium and has a magnetised lid. It also promises to have extremely sharp edges that never dull even after being constantly used, so that it grinds herbs effortlessly for a long time.
This grinder is best used for the long term, it is supposed to be very durable and last a lifetime.
- As this grinder is made from extremely durable materials, it should last for a very long time without breaking.
- This grinder has really good pollen retention.
- It is very sharp, this allows it to shred any herbs perfectly and makes them really finely ground.
- The edges of the grinder are not supposed to dull over time.
- It can grind tougher herbs and multiple herbs all at once, which is a pro because it’s not what you would expect from a smaller grinder such as this one.
- The magnetic lid isn’t supposed to be very strong, this could result in the grinder tipping over and spilling herbs everywhere, or simply the lid falling off and breaking.
- The screw off parts are a little too secure, meaning you have to rotate them at least six times to get the grinder open.
- It’s harder to clean that most grinders, and doesn’t mask the smell of any herbs well at all.
- It doesn’t come with any warranty plans, Amazon or the company will not replace or fix it if it breaks.
Product four: Four Piece Aluminium Herb Grinder.
This grinder is made from ‘space-grade’ aluminium, which makes the product very durable. It’s also quite small, measuring at only two and a half inches. This grinder is also supposed to be corrosive resistant too. It has a removable screen and is magnetic.
This grinder is best used for travelling possibly, because of it’s small size and because it comes with a storage bag.
- It has a removable screen, which makes the clean up process easier.
- This grinder comes with a pollen pick to remove any of the leftovers from within the collection chamber and a storage bag so you can protect this grinder whilst you travel.
- It has a ten year warranty, which is rare for most grinders on the market. Most only claim to ‘last a lifetime’ or have a shorter warranty than this.
- It’s durable because of the material that it is made from and manufactured well.
- This grinder also grinds the herbs extremely well and the grinding action is reportedly effortless.
- It has a large holding chamber too, which means you can grind a large amount of herbs without the collection chamber filling up too quickly.
- For this grinder, there are multiple color options. You can order this in black or Rasta colored.
- This grinder has been reportedly no good for kitchen spices.
Product five: AfternoonDelight Five Piece Herb Grinder.
This herb grinder is a limited edition. It is made from high quality aluminium. It is designed with curved corners and has a deep containment chamber.
This is best used for grinding a lot of herbs or a large amount of herbs at once due to it having a large collection chamber.
- The aluminium construction makes it durable.
- The large collection chamber allows you to grind a large amount of herbs at once without having to keep emptying the chamber.
- The magnetic lid is very strong compared to most other grinders and will stop the grinder from opening, even when it is completely tipped upside down. This will prevent herbs from spilling or the lid from falling and potentially breaking or cracking.
- It has a removable wire-mesh kief catcher, which allows you to quickly and easily clean the grinder.
- It has a built-in Gear Discipline that allows for a very smooth and easy grinding action that other brands do not offer.
- The curved shape of the grinder allows you to scrape those extra pieces out, without the use of a guitar pick or a pocket knife to scrape out the left overs.
- This product also comes with a lifetime warranty and a black carry bag which is ideal for travelling with the grinder and storing it too.
- It comes with a lifetime warranty.
- It’s limited edition so it’s not available forever.
- It seems that there isn’t any other color options for this grinder e.g: black, this is only available in the champagne/gold color.
To conclude, I feel as if a lot of these cheap weed grinders with kief catcher are very similar. In price, they range from between fifty to eighty dollars. They do not all offer a warranty however, it seems as if Space Case as a company do not provide warranties on their products from what it says on their amazon page. However, if they are good quality products like they claim to be, good quality products shouldn’t need a warranty. The rest do offer warranties, lifetime and a ten year warranty. They are also all crafted from the same material which is aluminium and are the same size, with the exception of the large version of the Space Case Grinder, which is an inch larger than the rest and is made from titanium. As far as if titanium is stronger than aluminium, it more than likely is more durable, but probably not worth the extra twenty or thirty dollars that you are going to pay for it. The Afternoondelight Grinder is not currently available for a long period of time as it is a limited edition, however the rest of the grinders mentioned in this article should be available permanently for the foreseeable future. Overall, I believe that all of these grinders are very capable of doing their job and doing it well, some maybe more than others. I can’t really recommend any specific one as it depends on your preference, your budget and if you travel often. Some of these grinders are cheaper and some are more suited for travel because of their size and weight. If you do want a decent grinder, then I do recommend any one of these that have been mentioned in this article.
