4 Reasons Why Electric Herb Grinders Are Better than Manual Grinders

März 01, 2020 3 min read

Greetings fellow herb lovers, and welcome to another article about herb grinders! 

This time, we’ll be explaining why electric herb grinders are the way to go. If you’re on the fence about what type of grinder is best for herbs, we are positive that this article will show you that electric is the best way to grind your herbs.


 4 BIG reasons why electric grinders are better than manual herb grinders: 

1. Electric Herb Grinders are Faster.

When it comes to speed, no hand grinder can compete with an electric unit.  Electric grinders will always out-perform manual types in this category, and with advances in battery technology a lot of product can be ground before recharges are needed (plus, the recharges themselves don’t take very long).


If you have experience with hand grinders and switch to an electric grinder, this is likely the first thing you’ll notice: you’re enjoying your herbs faster than ever before!


2. Electric Herb Grinders Grind More Consistently.

Electric grinders operate at a consistent speed, so there the grind that they produce is very consistent and predictable.  This is great for grinding herb for use in a vaporizer.


The grinding teeth compartment of many electric grinders is often combined with a screen and dispensing mechanism that allows fully-ground herb to fall through into whatever container you are using to catch the grind.  This helps ensure the grind is consistent: large pieces remain in the grind until they are shredded to the right size, and material that is ground leaves the grinder instead of remaining inside to potentially clog the grinder.


3. Electric Herb Grinders are Easier to Use.

Hand grinders aren’t easy to use, especially the first time.  While some may enjoy learning the skill of using a hand grinder properly, if you are ultimately interested in enjoying the herb then it is best to go with a grinder that takes the guesswork out of the process.

This is another area where electric grinders beat the alternatives: they’re simple to use. 

Many electric grinders are also built in a way that allows for one-handed operation.  This is a major plus, and for many users this reason alone is enough to kiss their hand grinders good-bye.


Take the Mamba battery-powered grinder, for example: you simply place herb in the loading compartments, close the unit and perfectly ground herb falls out of the cone as soon as you press the switch.

4. Electric Grinders Are Less Wasteful

One thing that plagues the design and operation of many hand grinders is how easy it is to waste your herbs with them.  Wasting herb is obviously a problem, so this is another significant advantage of certain electric grinders.

The reason why waste is a problem with traditional hand grinders is that they have to be opened up to dump out ground herbs.  Unless you are extremely careful and have a clean area to catch the herbs, it is really easy to lose a lot of the product in the process.


Electric grinders like the Mamba have a built-in solution for this: their design incorporates something like a funnel that allows the grind to be directed into a container of your choosing.  This makes it easy to eliminate waste.



So there you have it: 4 reasons for the experienced grinder to switch or for the newcomer to go straight to an electric herb grinder.  Take it from us, electric is the way to go, and you won’t be disappointed.
