"The easiest grinder I have ever used." -Livestoner
The SLX Grinder
The 4 piece SLX grinders is in a league of it's own. I don't recall ever coming across a grinder that spins so easily. Their company is also amazing, they are completely transparent about everything their grinders are made from and back their products 100%.
I have used my fair share of grinders and they all seem to have the same problem and that's getting stuck. The SLX grinder does not seem to stick at all. Below I will go over how they accomplished that and how the SLX truly is a superior grinder. From the OG smokers to the rookies, this is the last grinder you will ever have to buy.
The SLX Grinder
The grinder has 4 pieces that can all be easily taken apart. From the design to the functions this has to be one of the best grinders I have ever used.
The micron screen is made out of stainless steel and is so fine it will only leave keef on the bottom chamber and not any herb. I can't remember how many times I sift through keef taking out chunks of herb, this eliminates that entirely. Also what I found extremely helpful was the screen easily pulls out, you don't have to screw it off.
I love the fact that they include their own scraping tools. Not a lot of grinder companies do this so it's really nice to see because they come in handy when you are trying to extract your keef.
Is it durable?
It's made out of Aerospace - Grade Aluminum so it's damn near indestructible and they guarantee it will last a lifetime. Not only that but they made the grinder with out PTFE. For those of you who might not know, that's Teflon, a highly toxic substance if inhaled. This is also another point of their superiority!
The SLX is coated inside and out with their proprietary non-stick ceramic. It also has cut grooves specifically for torque. They claim the grinder will not stick no matter how much you use it, I believe them. This is like no other grinder I've used. Keep in mind you still need to clean it every now and then.
How does it grind?
In one word, AMAZING. The SLX grinder has trapezoids shaped teeth that give you a more superior cut because of 4 sharp edges. They are also perfectly spaced so your herb doesn't get all clumped together and the holes are perfect size for your herb to fall into the chamber. I've used grinders with all types of shapes and angles when it comes to teeth and let me say, this provides a better in every aspect.
The Neodymium Magnets are another thing to brag about. They are very powerful and glide effortlessly when turning.
Cleaning the SLX
(From the Company)
Cleaning the cutting area: While your SLX won’t generally need cleaning, if your herbs have an exceptionally high moisture content (greater than 12%) or you use it an extraordinary amount, you may see some light buildup. To remove material that does accumulate:
Tap the grinder lightly on a solid surface (we recommend doing this over a piece of paper so you can collect everything that comes out).
Brush out anything that remains with a toothbrush or other soft brush. Everything will slip right out.
Cleaning the exterior: If any dirt builds up on the outside of your SLX, you can use a soft cloth with soap and water to wipe it away.
Lubrication: Your SLX is completed coated in our low-friction non-stick ceramic, and will not get stuck under normal use. However, if your herbs are exceptionally moist, you may experience some slight buildup around the lips. This can generally be brushed right off using the techniques above, but if all else fails we recommend refined hemp seed oil (available online from Amazon). This will both lubricate your grinder and cause any buildup to be easily wiped away with a paper towel or rag.
Use of Solvents: Our ceramic is highly durable, and it’s safe to use rubbing alcohol or acetone on the coating without fear of damaging it. However, harsh solvents may change the color of the logo, so proceed with caution. We will not replace units that have experienced a change in logo color or brightness.
