you do have to often re-tighten the skerton.


It wasn't a tightness thing for me. It was literally the shaft wobbling around at every level of tightness I dialed in.
I didn't tip at Per Se either.

Sounds like a screw loose somewhere, but I think your co-workers reacted appropriately.

 

At least when the PID on the office Silvia was causing all the lights to go dim on a cycle and I had to go find it its own circuit, they could only snicker behind my back.

I think the plastic does flex a bit, especially if you're going fast.  that's why I think the metal one will be better.

how fast and hard are you guys turning it? Are you guys grinders on an offshore racing sailboat on the weekends or something?

I do 48 grams at a time and I usually get annoyed and try to do it as fast as I can.

That glass/metal grinder does look nice (a lot nicer than my plastic one).

now i'm thinking the kitchenaid blade grinder might be fine for my purposes and i put the parts in the dishwasher also it comes with 2 additional bowls for grinding spices

Even for french press, blade grinders aren't going to be as good. They do take up a lot less room, though.

Not really a good answer there, then \:

 

There are manual burr grinders that have pretty good grind quality, and can go just fine in a cabinet, but they're way too much of a pain to use.

 

Maybe for immersion methods like FP and that cold brewer, it's not quite that big a deal. Like you lose some quality from grind inconsistency (but the beans can't be fresh anyway?), but less in relative terms than with pourover? Not sure.
