Gone is the lunch baggy following your dealer’s shrug when you ask what strain of weed you’re paying $60/eighth for.

So then why do some people scoff at the idea of spending a little more on the equipment they use every day? When a chef considers their tools, do they go for the cheap everyday steak knives?

No. They know that if they’re going to be using these tools day-in and day-out to prepare food, then paying a little more for a thoughtfully designed tool is the right choice. So the question for you to consider is — who are you?

Are you the once a month consumer who just likes to smoke ever now and then? Do you honestly not really care so as long as your equipment works decently? If it burns and works then it works for you, right?

A steel weed grinder is the most expensive type of weed grinder you can realistically purchase. However, if you don’t mind paying for it and want the very best in terms of material hardness, then a steel weed grinder should be your grinder type of choice.

If you’re the type of person who consumes cannabis regularly, then a better designed, properly built grinder is probably a good choice. There are grinders made from anodized aluminum (like ours), that will work great, but if you’re reading this article, then you’re probably looking for the best stainless steel weed grinder, so we’ll stick with grinders only made from steel in this article.
