The classic Skerton hand grinder just got a big makeover -- introducing the Hario Skerton Pro.

Among many notable new features, the Skerton Pro now includes a sturdy, solid cast handle that streamlines the process of grinding, as well as removing and replacing the new plastic lid. A burr stabilization spring keeps the center shaft secure, decreasing burr wobble and increasing grind quality on coarse settings. The Skerton Pro also features a new grind adjustment wheel located on the underside of the body, much like the Mini Mill Slim. No more hassle removing the handle, screw, and lock pin to change grind size - now you can adjust your grind in seconds. Lastly, the Skerton Pro features a wide grip on the body that offers more of a sense of control and stability. Grinding with the Skerton Pro is a pleasure and a noticeably improved experience.

Like the original Skerton, The Skerton Pro features large conical ceramic burrs, and a full range of grind sizes from espresso to french press. The bottom glass bowl holds up to 100g of coffee grounds, but if you need more capacity the body of the Skerton will thread directly onto standard Ball jars.

Great for travel or as an entry level burr grinder, the Skerton Pro is an economical option for those seeking to improve their morning brew. Looking for a more compact alternative? Check out Hario's Mini Slim Plus. For the classic Skerton feel, try the Hario Skerton Plus.

  • Large ceramic burrs
  • Internal bushing and burr spring stabilization
  • Constructed of steel, glass, plastic and silicone.
  • 100 gram grounds capacity
  • Wider grip and flat-bottom silicone foot
  • Stepped grind adjustment wheel
  • Easily removable handle

Great, affordable burr grinder

Excellent burr hand grinder with easy-to-use, adjustable grind size. I typically use this for French press and pour overs and the grind consistency is quite uniform. Downside is the fact that you have to spend several minutes of cranking to get just get about 20-30g of ground beans. The handle feels somewhat sturdy but I wish the bolt was a bit larger and taller (doesn't quite feel super secure as-is).

Best hand grinder for the money

About 5 years ago my expensive electric grinder (similar to a Baratza) committed suicide when the case split from internal spring pressure and it jumped out of the cabinet and smashed itself on the floor. I bought a cheapie hand grinder as an interim measure. I became somewhat of a zen coffee drinker using an Aeropress and a pour over Chemex and decided a hand grinder fit the theme. As the cheapie grinder started to wear out I started looking at newer models. The Hario Skerton Plus was my first thought but the more I looked at the Pro the more I liked it, especially since Prima sells it at a good price and for very little more than the Plus. Now that I have it, I am glad I got it. The first pleasant surprise is how much less effort it takes to grind coffee. You might say that is because the burrs are new but I know my cheapie grinder always took more effort even when it was new. I was concerned that the handle,which has a hex socket that fits over the shaft would tend to slip off while grinding. That has not been the case and the convenience of removing the handle to fill the hopper and place the clear plastic shield is clearly an advantage. There is much comment about how the Pro gives a consistent grind. I can confirm that. For a similar grind there are less fines so my Aeropress does not clog the filter and there are fewer grounds getting through the mesh filler I use in the Chemex. The heavier, flatter rubber base really helps stabilize the grinder on the counter top. Just a note here is that as dust starts to infiltrate between the jar and the rubber base it will start falling off. some folks have commented on that. Just wipe or wash the jar and inside of the rubber base and it stays on again. The grinder is quieter, too. All in all, it is a good value for those of us who enjoy the zen of hand grinding.

Great grinder; major hand workout

I'm new to the world of burr grinders, and figured this would be the best way to get started. I love the Hario's feel in my hands and the fine-tuning available with the adjustable burr setting beneath; it does take some experimentation to get it just right for your brewing method. The bottom part is all glass and has a separate cover, so you can grind a lot and keep it stored safely or travel with it without having to put your grind in a different container. I use this nearly every day and so far have no complaints, except that it's a major workout! I can't seem to find a way to get it going on the counter without it slipping away from me, so I hold the whole thing in my hands -- one hand on the body of it and one hand turning the crank. The circular motion can get pretty exhausting grinding 50g or so. Just something to keep in mind.

Lovely grinder

Grinds whole coffee beans to a coarse texture perfect for my French press coffee pot. Grinding is easier and quicker when holding collector (base) and grinding handle freehand instead of placing the collector on a surface.

Hario Skerton Pro Coffee Grinder

I am very pleased with this grinder. Although it requires a considerable amount of physical effort, the end product is well worth it. The grind is consistent, it is easy to assemble & take apart for cleaning & adjusting the coarseness of the beans is simple. Given the affordability of this important accessory, I heartily recommend this product.

Great back up grinder

Bought to take on vacay and to have at home just in case a power outage strikes. Good grind for pour over and much better design than first Hario manual grinder. Customer service from Prima after the sale was awesome.

Great Manual Grinder

This grinder does exactly what it is supposed to do. Takes a little work for larger amounts of beans but for 3-4 cup batches it’s no big deal to grind the amount you need. It’s well worth the effort to get the consistent grind it produces. Seems well made, only time will tell. I would recommend this grinder to those trying to avoid all the bells, whistles and problems associated with electric grinders.

excellent grinder for daily use

Having owned two previous Hario grinders, including the original Skerton and a mini for travel, I chose the Pro for its upgraded details this time around. The grinder in my original order was unfortunately defective (the central shaft was misaligned, causing the central burr to rub hard against one edge of the outer ring). Prima Coffee ensured an excellent customer service experience, shipping me a replacement straight away, and providing a shipping label to send off the defective unit. The replacement works great, and is definitely an improvement in design and functionality over the original Skerton. I'm a fan, and recommend the Skerton Pro unreservedly. Buy it from Primo, and based on my experience, they'll take good care of you if you should need any help with your purchase.

Great customer support and no complaints about the grinder yet

Hello. Going to be short and quick. My grinder arrived promptly a few days after I ordered it. Unfortunately the handle was broken on arrival. I contacted Prima the same day and they quickly were able to get a new handle shipped to me from Hario USA. Grinder works fine so far, but I'm still getting used to the grind setting which is a bit .. vague. I'm new to making my own coffee so this was a good purchase to get started with. I will likely upgrade to a automatic grinder, but for now this works perfectly fine. I usually fill the thing halfway and that gives me about 20g of grounds which is a good sized cup.

Very good product and supplier!

The Hario Skelton Pro is the first burr grinder I've bought, and the first manual grinder I've used other than my great-grandmother's 19th century one, which still works fine but which I don't want to risk by regular use. The burr grinding does seem to produce a better cup of coffee, not by a lot, but noticeable (mostly less bitterness in the aftertaste). The Hario Skelton Pro is simple and solid. I use 46 grams of beans when I grind, and that's about as much as the top hopper holds. The 100 gram limit listed is for the glass recipient of the ground coffee, so about two hopper-fulls. Adjusting the fineness was easy once I read the direction to put the handle on the top and hold it fast while turning the adjustment underneath. The rubber sleeve for the glass recipient, which is supposed to help hold the thing still on a counter, is a nice gesture but since the glass slips around in the sleeve, the sleeve is of no real value. I find holding the glass recipient part with the hand I'm not using for grinding, and letting it all move however it likes as I grind, is easier than trying to keep the thing still on the counter. The shipment and delivery from Prima Coffee was extremely rapid. It's always a pleasure to find a quality product at a good price (better than Amazon) from a retailer that is not one of the big blobs like Amazon, Walmart, etc.

Better than the tiny grinders

I started with the entry level size grinders--24 gram size. But quickly discovered that I'd prefer a significantly greater amount of grounds by going to the larger 100 gram Skerton PRO. Same amount of time to grind, about 3 to 4 times more ground coffee results. Good choice--excellent product now that Hario has improved the Skerton by simplifying working parts into the PRO iteration.

Hario Skerton Pro: Thumbs Up!

I looked at manual grinders for longer than I should have. I was looking for a multi-purpose grinder (one that I could use at home when I woke up earlier than the kids and wanted to ensure my quiet time, could take to the office for a quick Aeropress, could take on a trip (by screwing on a plastic Ball jar to lighten the load) and grind enough coffee for a full pot when hosting and this grinder fits the bill. For those with smaller hands, I find it easiest to grind when sitting down and holding between my legs when grinding more than 20 grams of beans. The build quality is exceptional, no handle falling off issues and the grind quality is excellent... especially given the price point. Overall, it took me a while to convince myself that this was the grinder that I was looking for and I very happy with the end product.

Nice little grinder

It takes a little longer than my Zassenhaus Santiago and is not quite as ergonomic, but the grind stays set better and it's easier to clean. It was also about half the price, so I'm quite pleased. It feels solid so I'm hoping it will hold up as well as the Zassenhaus. Very pleased with the quick delivery from Prima, too!
