The grinding before it was even working was inconsistent and failed to be what i wanted it to be even after playing with different settings.
Feel like a waste of money.
there are three options, it will take a while to figure out how to grind to your size, the smallest being like sand, the largest being like salt.
Very handy travel and take around. Perfectly small but powerful!
Few notes: 1, grind on a flat surface and hold it there, you will get better consistency. 2, you can count the number of threads, if you want to come back to a certain ground size

That said: this is my second Hario Slim mill. We have one at home that we use for our morning coffee, and I bought one for my office. I've had no trouble with the handle slipping off or not fitting the hex nut on top. I haven't attempted to disassemble either unit - I use a paper towel to wipe out the hopper and transparent grounds container after I finish a bag of beans.
And my take? I love these affordable little grinders. It takes about a minute to grind enough for one cup - enough time to earn you some curious looks from your colleagues - but it's really not that onerous. It's easy to use and clean, and makes for a really delicious cup of coffee.
I never bothered reading the instructions. It was a "suck it and see" approach with a few beans and a bit of a fiddly adjustment from the bottom. For me this is no great issue. I only needed to set it up once since I only ever grind for the cafeteria.
The grinder seems to be well made - but it is designed for grinding speeds a normal human being can produce. I can confirm that if you grind too fast (for instance if you attach a drill - even at the slower drill speeds) the grinder will overheat and start falling apart. Obviously I am not silly enough to do this. I just happen to been a relative of The Flash.
One thing that would have made this gadget almost perfect would have been a way of attaching the handle to the side of the device for easy transport or a bag/container to put it in.
The clicking adjustment knob is an excellent way to quickly change grind size to a setting you've used previously. As a rough figure I use this guide that I got from another user for different types of brewing methods:
Standard Drip Brew: 10 clicks
#2 Pour over: 10 clicks
Aeropress: 6-8 clicks
Espresso: 5 clicks (I find some beans are better set at 4 clicks)
French Press: 12-14 clicks
Mocha pot: 9 clicks
Chemex: 9 clicks
Pre-measured marks on the side so you can see how much you've ground (Holds enough for two Espresso's).
No fiddly trays to use to get to your coffee. The base unscrews and you pour your grinds where they need to go. No messing.
Easy to disassemble for cleaning.
If you want to make lots of coffee then it's going to need a bit of effort. I'd consider getting something larger and electric if this is your requirement.
If you grind too fine there are a couple of problems. First, it takes blooming ages to get the desired amount of coffee. I really don't want forearms like Popeye. Second, the really fine ground coffee doesn't work in the Areo Press because as you try to force the water through the coffee, it compacts like a fine sedimentary clay and you cannot pass the water through it (Would probably be fine in a cafetiere though).
It's very nice to be able to hand grind my own coffee, I can't use an electric mill due to noise issues, this is quiet. The grinding sensation can also be quite relaxing!
Grinding size is is easy and simple to adjust. I can grind for two cups and leave half the ground coffee in the receptacle until I want to use it. -I use a somewhat fine grind setting, as I find using the finest setting takes far too long for me to grind for a single cup. Grinding two cups' worth can be a bit tiring on this setting, but doesn't take more then a couple of minutes.
Tip; I give the grinder a light tap after finishing grinding to displace any grounds that have not fallen out of the mill, -otherwise they often end up on the counter-top.
The general build construction seems good, the handle is sturdy and I have not been worried about breaking the grinder.
Cleaning the receptacle has been easy, although I haven't tried cleaning the mill itself. The handle detaches effortlessly to allow the mill cap to be removed, the receptacle screw-action feels sturdy. The grinder can be stored very easily (I'm a student- space is a premium!) and doesn't take up much space. - Detaching the handle reduces the grinder's profile for storage. I'm unsure how bean size would affect the grinding, but the mill processes small beans very well (5mm?).
I can't come up with any faults for the product.
Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend the product. Delivery from Japan Syndrome was very slow, but arrived within a month.
It's easy to adjust the grind and I can get a nice even moderately fine grind for my Aeropress if I tighten the adjuster nut until it's locked, and dial back 3 or 4 clicks - that reliably gives me the grind I want. The finer you grind, the longer it takes, it takes me about as long to grind enough beans for one cup of coffee as it does for the kettle to boil. I've been meaning to have a go to see if it will grind fine enough for a Turkish coffee, but haven't got round to it yet. The handle is comfortable in the hand and easy to turn, and it's much quieter than an electric grinder, I can get up early and brew up and not wake anybody.
The mill is easy to strip down and reassemble for cleaning, you just need to take note of the order of the parts, although it's mostly pretty obvious.
There's something rather satisfying about grinding coffee beans by hand as well - part of the joy of brewing coffee for me is the ritual, and this is a little bit more ritual. The Hario is not the answer if you're brewing up a big batch of coffee for guests or a dinner party, but for making a coffee for one or two it's just the job. I'm very pleased with it.
If you have an espresso machine and dont want to pay £300 for an electric burr grinder this is the ONE without a shadow of a doubt!
A superb piece of design - this item is clearly well made and designed to last.
Easy to calibrate and amend the grind size if required although you will find a size that works and stick to it..
Takes a bit of effort to grind but no longer than 30 seconds for a double espresso..
I actually quite like the grind.. feels a lot more natural than whizzing it up in a grinder.
If you are still using a 'chop and burn' grinder you honestly have to try this out.. especially if you are using an espresso machine!
gives the best crema i have ever had.. 10/10
Really easy to use and very fast! I'm able to grind enough for a strong double espresso, in the time it takes the water to boil. At first it was taking me almost 10minutes of grinding to get a espresso coarseness , which was a bit disappointing. Until I realised it was the way I was holding it; I was tilting the grinder to one side while grinding, which more than doubles the time! So make sure to keep the grinder upright while grinding and you'll be surprised how fast this little gadget is. I was worried it'd become tiresome to manually grind the coffee each time, but it's become a sort of ritual that I very much enjoy.
All in all, great value for money and a solid product.
