Why The Chromium Crusher Grinder?
Let’s look at the good points for this grinder first. It weighs only 5.6 ounces and measures only a few inches in height and depth. Heavy duty zinc alloy is the material of choice, which means it is going to stand up to nearly whatever you can throw at it. The surface is refined and has an ultra-smooth finish, which makes it very handy.
The Teflon O-ring is an excellent feature as well and not something you commonly see in a budget grinder. The O-ring is a great thing to have because it prevents metal rubbing on each other between two pieces when you are grinding. With that smooth grinding thanks to the O-ring, it is easy to twist the parts, and they will last for a long period.
There is no shortage of teeth with this grinder. There are 54 diamond shaped teeth that create an excellent shredding potential for your herbs. No problem to grind up even the toughest strands.
The screen, made of stainless steel, is nice and small and will help you create a great fine powder for vaporizing. The bonus mini-pollen scraper, or kief scraper (let’s call it kief around here), is an excellent addition. It allows you to get that fine powder out, which is great if you are smoking marijuana since the kief has a higher potency that regular marijuana.
The Chromium Crusher grinder is highly functional, and since it is heavier than $5 aluminum grinders, you have more leverage in which to grind. It makes grinding much easier for you. The magnet lids will also keep anything from spilling out when you are grinding. It is also very difficult scratch the Chromium Crusher, or even damage it, something you can’t say about lesser-quality aluminum grinders that cost more.

What’s Not To Like?
Of course, it’s a below $50 weed grinder. We could list few flaws about it.
- The Anodizing (which was mentioned as “paint” in the video) gradually chips away as you grind the weed inside.
- Weed residues stick on the Chromium Crusher teeth. (This is normal for most grinders below $50 but you can just clean it anyway.)
- Some kief sticks on the corners of the last chamber. (If you hate this then we suggest you to buy weed grinders with an improved pollen chamber.)
- Don’t buy the Chromium Crusher with unique teeth shape, it doesn’t really grind weed well. The standard version would work better. Also it sounds so bad when you grind it.
Examples of improved pollen chamber are weed grinders such as Black Tie Grinder which has a pollen chamber with Rounded Sides. Cali Crusher and Space Case Grinder which has anodized Finish that makes it non-stick. Just check the material it uses.
Ironically, the biggest problem with the Chromium Crusher is not even their fault. There are a number of fakes out on the market. It’s because it is so affordable and of such high-quality. They will say Chromium Crusher on the lid, but it won’t be an actual Chromium Crusher. Make sure you buy the right crusher from the right vendor. Another problem with the Crusher is the fact that when it is brand new, some pieces of the screen will break off.
Lastly, even though it has “some” obvious flaws, most buyers already expect that and they are not disappointed with Chromium Crusher’s performance and durability. Resulting to a 4.3/5 Stars as of December 2017. It’s durable and still working well. As I mentioned in the homepage, my friend’s Chromium Crusher even lasted for 4 years. For a price of lower than $20, it’s definitely worth it in my opinion. The flaws are just minor. At least it doesn’t break after a year of use.Check Price on Amazon
