Herbal Vaporizer Description:

Chromium Crusher is the newest grinder brand in the market. It is the ONLY non-aluminum grinder. The metal alloy making up the Chromium Crusher grinder is much stronger a far superior compared to aluminum. Zinc and steel (These 2 metal are much heavier than aluminum) are forged together under extreme heat to produce the highest quality metal alloy. The heavier weight of the grinder feels great in your hand. Its quality is the finest among grinders. The outside finish/coating of Chromium Crusher is UNIQUE. It is the only metallic black chrome polished grinder in the market. The texture of the grinder is different from other grinders. You can distinguish a Chromium Crusher from other grinders by touching and feeling it with your hands. The special coating minimized scratch and wear & tear on the grinder over-time. It will keep the grinder new and shinny for a very long period of time more

Wonderful, Especially For the Price
Rating:5 out of 5 stars

– For $20, you really aren’t going to get a better grinder anywhere. This has the quality of its $40 counterparts

– People criticize the screen for being too fine, but the buildup you collect is much more pure. Grinders with bigger screens tend to have bits of plant matter that fall through

– This grinder just feels durable and strong. I could spike this thing on a cement sidewalk and it would probably grind just like new

– The ground product is the perfect consistency for rolling. You will never get consistency like this if you break your smoking herbs up by hand

– The teeth are sharp and plentiful, but the grinder leaves no flecks of metal behind like some cheap grinders do

– It came with a nice little carrying pouch


– I was expecting this grinder to be black based on the picture, but it was a chrome color instead. Color doesn’t matter at all to me, but it’s something potential buyers should be aware of

– The chamber where the grinded product falls into is very shallow. If you are careless when separating the layers, you might have your herbs spill out

– It might take a few tries to line up the threads on the layers correctly

Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. I shutter to think about the grinders at my local smokeshop I was considering purchasing for almost double the price. I highly recommend this grinder to anyone


A good buy.

I bought a plastic pill grinder from the local Rite aid that works better for $5. This thing leaves big chunks. Looks nice but disfunctional. Your better off using a folded cloth and a hammer.

Works Well

I use a battery operated grinder when I’m at home, but this is my grinder when I’m on the road. It’s solid, well-made and works well. For $20, this is the grinder I recommend. If I lose the one I’ve got, I’ll be buying another one of these.

Decent Product for the Money

It took me a long time to decide on what herb grinder to purchase, & I finally chose this one mainly because it was on sale. I am very pleased with it. It does an excellent job. I don’t feel the pieces screw together as smoothly as I would like them to, but they work just fine. For the price I paid & the product I received, I am very happy.

Product pictured is not what was received in mail
Rating:3 out of 5 stars
The grinder itself feels very smooth, grinds nicely, but with a bit of a loose cap (strong magnet though), and is overall a quality product, but the grinder that I received in the mail was different than the picture provided.

The grinder I received had 5 pieces and 4 chambers, as opposed to the pictured 4 piece/3 chamber grinder as was pictured.

The result of this was that the extra chamber took up room that should have been more storage area for the ground herbs.

There is very minimal room for the herb to be stored in the grinder (only a 1/2cm layer of herb can be stored at one time), there are two identical storage areas so i get around this by grinding some herbs into one layer, then grinding more into the other layer to save for later.

I would have preferred one larger storage layer, but it’s a quality tobacco/herb grinder and I am otherwise satisfied with the product, plus $20 is a very good price for the grinder.

great but one complaint
Rating:4 out of 5 stars
Grinder is very heavy duty and awesome for the price, magnet is perfect but my one complaint is that the kief storage area is more than twice the size of the regular drop down area above the screen, not very nice if u want to keep your stuff in there for longer periods of time. Otherwise no complaints, cheap but great.

Won’t (have to) buy again!
Rating:5 out of 5 stars
I am not a review-er type, but I really wanted to let people know how wonderful this item is. First, it is a joy to look at, and I really mean look at: this is a beautifuly made item, and little details, like the radius in the lid of the grinder compartment, or the included carry bag, are things I can see myself really coming to appreciate. It is a really great size, but not as heavy as I expected it to be, yet somehow feel more expensive because of it. To be honest, looking at it I kept thinking about exotic German cars. In short, it feels solid and precise, while looking impressive and understated.

I don’t think the drop compartment is too small as some others have discussed, but the pollen screen is very fine, and I am not sure how much will sift through. On the flip, not much will sift up (like in transit), either, keeping the precious safe. As a bonus, the screen feels tight as a drum, which is where I have had other grinders fail.

Only gripes are some VERY minor cosmetic defects on inner surfaces and that I would have preferred the magnet to attach the lid protrude up from the body (when assembled) than down from the lid, but these are VERY minor nitpicks on a grinder I would expect to see for $50-70, retail, plus $10 for the pouch.

This is a phenomenal product, not just for the price. I would buy again, but I doubt I will have too!

Great Crusher – Could Use a Higher Lip
Rating:4 out of 5 stars
I bought this thing about a month ago and have put plenty through it. It came super sharp and has stayed that way so far. This thing does exactly what I bought it for and my buddy seems to like it better than his Sharpstone (which I personally witnessed lose three prongs in one grind). The only downside is that it does not have a very high lip to contain after grinding. I’m not sure if every ChromCrusher is exactly the same but mine could have used a little more capacity. Takes a lot of turning which can get old, but usually your about to have some fun, so you can get over that.


worth the price
Rating:4 out of 5 stars
This grinder really is a crusher. Its teeth are mean, sharp and rip through your nug quick, usually within 5 or so twists its all ground up. It looks sharp, and is durable. Though there are two downfalls, the screen is very tight not allowing for much keef to fall through. In addition the screen is set rather high in its chamber so you have to be careful and hold it straight up when unscrewing it in order not to loose your bud. Its clearly worth the money but the screen sucks.

what i expected
Rating:4 out of 5 stars
This is an awesome grinder: the herb comes out really fine, and my “pollen” reservoir” is getting filled nicely… the reason i gave it four stars instead of five is simply the feel of it… just a matter of taste, really. all things aside, i definitely recommend it.

This grinder is great. I have not had any issues with its performance so far, its blades efficiently chop even the most dense herb. I would definitely order this grinder again, because at this price, there is absolutely no reason to order a different one. To boot, it came with a nice black pouch to keep it in.

The Price Is A STEAL!
Rating:4 out of 5 stars
Friends of mine have commented on this grinder saying how much they like it.


-Grinds herb with minimal effort, the teeth are VERY sharp

-Screen works very well (You get very fine, almost dust-like material)

-Fits comfortably in your hands, has a little weight that most grinders don’t so it feels nice to hold.

-Easily kept in your pocket

-Came with a little carrying pouch

-Very cheap for the quality



-Finger Prints are easily seen on the outside, making it less attractive, easily wiped off with a cloth.

-Storage area is rather small for non-screened herb (My guess is for better screening)

-Threads have to be aligned perfectly or you will cross-thread

-Grinded herb accumulates in the threads, sometimes making it a little harder to close.

I am very satisfied with this grinder.


Nice but not Black
Rating:4 out of 5 stars
-Pros: Nice heavy metal, Nice sharp teeth, Kief Catcher, Cloth Bag, Good Price.

-Cons: Like the other reviews say, It Is Not Black. Its more of a tinted chrome that makes it look allot cheaper, at least I was prepared. Took 12 days to get hare (Amazon and USPS ware slow compared to the other items I bought). Doesn’t grind as fine as I would want it to and holes are big enough for watermelon seeds to fall through.

Let me explain this Grinder since the pictures aren’t exactly clear. It comes inside of a shaped cloth bag with little strings to tie it. This is nice for transporting it because it doesn’t fall open and doesn’t really look like a Grinder. In the Inside… Its tinted Chrome not black! The top part has teeth and is magnetic. The next part down has teeth and holes for the substance to fall through to the next part and the top is easily taken off/put back on because of the magnets. The next part has a very fine screen for “kief” to fall through and is screwed on. The bottom part also screws on and it catches the kief.

The way I like to use this grinder is take the top off, set it down and fill it up with the substance, then put the bottom part on top it (not allowing any thing to fall through the holes). I grind it up as fine as I can and then I ether unscrew it and dump it out if I’m in a hurry or, I let it fall through the holes and then unscrew it (turned up right), and turn the substance into a fine powder while its siting on top of the screen and then dump it out. This allows for a good amount of the substance to fall into the kief catcher.

Rating:5 out of 5 stars
Rated 5 out of 5.

The Chromium Crusher is one great mass-produced grinder that uses zinc and other metals to make an alloy that contains no aluminum. It is unknown whether or not this type of grinder wears more evenly, or safer with fragments, than aluminum. It’s not a Spacecase grinder (the titanium grinder Pinnacle of Grinders) by any means, and the one I got had some teeth deformities (Quality control!), but nothing that prevented the teeth from rotating freely. The grinder has magnets that hold the grinding portions together, and for the entirety, hold it extremely well. I have heard stories of the magnets falling out, but for me owning this grinder and giving it some heavy “honest use (ehem xD)” use over the last few months I would say this grinder is holding every portion intact and stable.

The pollen mesh screen is really too fine to allow really any particles in besides dust, so I have found. Oh well.

It is definitely worth the money that I paid for it < $25 with a combo package. If one is looking to select a Chromium Crusher, I would recommend searching a little bit more to find the combination package on sale, that includes the metal "kief" compactor, an "EZ Split", a battery stash compartment, and velvet feeling drawstring closure case for the grinder. I say this because the package can be found for around the same price as the grinder, so why not save money and get some extra cheap free things. I am not sure if the Chromium Crusher normally comes with the little drawstring case without the combination pack, but since it arrived in the drawstring case, I'm sure it is part of the grinder individually.
There we go, if you’ve stayed with me then you’d know that this is one little hefty grinder, and one that is a solid buy for the money.

Thanks for reading this review.

Best Grinder everrrr

My friends all have grinders, and they are pretty crappy….needless to say, i didnt expect much from this one.

However, when I got it in the mail, i was surprised at how sturdy (not to mention pretty) it was…lol..the spikes inside the grinder are sharp!! watch your fingers! it helps make my herbs nice and tiny for better smoking….I didnt expect such great quality for that price, but this is the best one Ive ever seen!! im VERY happy with it.

The Crusher does what it is designed to do and does it exceedingly well. The fifth star is missing only because the small magnet fell out. The magnet is unnecessary.

Its a good grinder but the screen is far to fine you can grind a forest B4 you start to see any real accumilation. However the numerous teeth and holes is a real treat.I did find however after extended use their does tend to get build up around the inner edge of the grinder thats hard to remove, this creates friction which makes it harder to grind.

works well, you get what you pay for

although it’s a cheap grinder, it works well for me.

only problem is it scratches itself while grinding once in a while


everyone loves it
Rating:5 out of 5 stars
Small enough to be portable and comes with a nifty little pouch so you can throw it in your bag or purse with no worries for mess. It works perfectly for my needs and I get complimented on it all the time. Everyone is particularly impressed by its low price. Occasionally, a few larger chunks don’t grind and fall through, but it’s not really a big deal. “Pollen” builds up nicely and quickly too. I highly recommend it 😉

Also, mine was chrome, not black.

The product that is displayed in the photos was not the one I received. Little problem, good product either way. Almost feels like the body is something you find at the flea market, but the teeth is that rare find.

Arrived it at the day schedule, a was a little disappointed at the beginning thought it will look darker as shown in the picture, but compare to the competition it still look darker then the other ones. It is a 4 piece grinner and it seems durable comes with a little bag to keep it safe. Seems durable I don’t know about brands but it does have the chromium crusher seal as on the picture. The lid from the grinner it does close with a magnet which it works just fine. Maybe clean it up before of use.

Buy this if you are trying to compare!
Rating:5 out of 5 stars
I bought this a bit ago thinking that the price is right, but perhaps the quality was going to be on the lacking side. I was wrong! This is a supreme deal for a grinder, since the unit has ALL the features of a nicer much more expensive unit. First, the material it is made of is not just a light aluminum, but it is a heavier alloy that just gives it a nice feel. The grinding action is perfect for creating perfectly smokable or vaporizer ready material, and with the nice built in screen you don’t have to worry about losing your precious ‘fine material’. The top is magnetic too, and the thing even came with a case! Comparable to a $80 unit in shops, I would highly reccommend this grinder!

Better than the SharpStone
Rating:5 out of 5 stars
I’ve been using a 2.5″ SharpStone grinder, and this beats it hands down, with a much nicer feel, 24 grinding “nubs” to SharpStone’s 12, and also no tight lid leaving aluminum residue around the outer edges after grinding.

Another review gave this only 3 stars, saying that it has a weak magnet, however it works just fine: turn the grinder upside-down and the lid doesn’t fall off, even with a bit of shaking. What more does one need?

Also, someone noted that this model’s kief screen is too fine to be effective. While it does look that way, I’m finding that it is equal in “production” to the SharpStone.

One complaint that I have with both products is that they require too many turns to tighten the parts together; surely these could have been machined so that a single twist would do the trick, eliminating the need for a fine touch in order to get the pieces together without stripping the threads.


Looks great but there are better
Rating:2 out of 5 stars
The cons of this grinder outweigh the pros so they go first:


– SMALL. Don’t compare this to other 2.25″ grinders, because it’s also REALLY thin (only 1.5). You really cant grind much herb at a time (barely enough for one person).

– Expensive. You can get 5 grinders that are bigger, better, and for the same price elsewhere on Amazon.

– Screen holes are too small! Nothing can get through them so it’s pretty much a waste.


– Looks awesome. Not black like the pictures, more of a really dark grey.

– Very dense. Uses a lot heavier metal than some other grinders

– Nice teeth

– Strong magnet

If you really have the money to waste and NEED a good looking small grinder, then by all means get this one. But I suggest shopping around on amazon.

this grinder is everything you need to look for in a grinder. The only problem is that if you twist the caps too far, it’ll loosen the grooves that hold it together and it won’t hold. Just be careful how tight you close it. other than that, excellent

Almost great
Rating:3 out of 5 stars
Only prob is it doesn’t have a strong magnet. Otherwise sharp teeth, nice mulch, fine screen. It comes in a pouch so it won’t fall apart, but I give it a 3 for the sucky magnet that is probably really cheap..
