Details

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.

Hario skerton pro

Easy to adjust the grind. I use it mostly for Aeropress and rancilio silvia espresso machine. It takes about 5 minutes of relaxed cranking to get ¼ cup espresso grind.

Great Grinder!

After trying to grind coffee beans with a vita mix and not being happy with the results, I decided it was time to step up to a hand grinder. After doing a little bit of research I opted for the Hario pro and have been completely satisfied. Having used some friends hand grinders, this one seems to grind at a much faster rate with a lot less work. It also has a fairly wide circumference so it’s easy to grip if you have a little larger hand. Overall, I could not be more pleased with the purchase.

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.

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 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!

A Great Step Up!

I use this with my stovetop percolator and with my French Press - it is an enormous step up from my blade grinder. Adjusting the consistency is so easy and that was the main feature which sold me on this grinder rather than any competing models. I highly recommend it, and if you have just 3 extra minutes in the morning, this will dramatically improve your caffeination experience. And then you can use your old grinder for a spice grinder! My homemade mustard has never been better!

Fun grinder

Is it a pain to hand grind the beans every morning? For a few days after I got this handsome, well-crafted grinder with the excellent glass receiving base, I thought about storing it for car camping and picking up a cheapie electric one for daily life. And then...my muscles and attention calibrated to the process. Not only does the Hario Skerton create perfectly ground beans, I find it sweet that grinding beans became quiet contemplation. Always good to have opportunity for more mediation. Excellent grinder for beans and life.

Consistent grind and a joy to use

I previously owned the original Skerton, and this model blows it out of the water. It's got added stability in the bottom burr shaft, including a spring to provide tension. The handle is beefy and makes it easy to turn the crank, and the hopper lid is a lovely addition for the occasional high velocity escapee. My only concern is a couple plastic pieces that are integral to holding the grind shaft; if they break, it may be difficult to replace them, as I don't think Hario sells the parts on their site.

Great for Hurricanes

Really well designed visually but clumsy to handle and takes an inordinate time to grind. I have a 100 year old wall grinder that could out do this in half the time. Honestly, the crups blade did a better job in no time. But I will say that this one gave a better flavor to the coffee so you’re right about the burr. Going to clean the old fellow and keep this one as a reminder that somethings (like the porcelain drip pot) can’t be improved upon. Best, Lucinda Kempe

Decent Grinder

This is my first grinder. Seems to work as advertised. Easy to adjust. Grind size seems consistent. The aroma of fresh roasted fresh ground coffee is priceless. BUT I don't taste much difference in fresh coffee vs store bought bag coffee. There is only a slight improvement in the fresh, but it's not worth the trouble of grinding. I'll probably be selling the grinder after this bag of beans are gone.

Functional. Fast. Consistent. Ugly.

I really like this grinder. It does it's job and it does it well. It's easy to adjust. It grinds surprisingly fast for a manual grinder with very little effort. On the other hand, the plastic that screws onto the glass bowl is easier to cross thread than it should be. The rubber base under the glass bowl doesn't sit flush onto the bowl, and often the bowl sits crookedly on the counter as a result. After a couple of weeks, the rubber base has started to fall off while grinding (I prefer to hold the grinder by the throat while grinding instead of sitting the grinder on the counter). And wow is this thing not pretty! If Hario put half the effort into making the grinder look decent as they put into their packaging, this grinder would be a thing of beauty. But it's not. That said, I very much enjoy having this grinder. I'm glad I bought it.

Uniform Grind Size

Pros: More consistent grinds than my Handground grinder - - less boulders and fines. This in spite of the fact that the Hario has more shaft wobble and a weaker stabilizing spring. The Hario can grind as fine as Turkish and as course as French Press or Cold Brew. Finer adjustment increments that Hario or Hario Plus. Cons: Really S-L-O-W. Handground is at least twice as fast due to the larger diameter burr set and the smaller crank handle (less arm motion). Must reset the grind adjustment after removing the cone burr for cleaning. All in all, I will give up the ergonomics and engineering of the Handground for the better grinds of the Hario Pro. Here are some good initial grind settings that I got from the Internet for the Hario Slim (same adjusment type as the Pro): Standard Drip Brew: 10 clicks #2 Pour over: 10 clicks Aeropress: 6-8 clicks Espresso: 5 clicks French Press: 12-14 clicks Moka pot: 9 clicks Chemex: 9 clicks

Not perfect, but a big step up...

My only other grinder was a popular design of cylindrical stainless steel promoted as good for camping. Unfortunately it had so many flaws that it is now in storage as a backup. My month-old Hario Skerton Pro has more capacity, has visible upper and lower chambers, a better shaft and support system, positive click stops for the grind setting, and most impressive - the grinding handle is a work of art. It won't be slipping off the shaft anytime soon. The grind is nicely uniform compared to the less expensive hand-held cylinder. Another big plus is that the ceramic burr is attached to the shaft with a metal-to-metal arrangement, unlike the cylinder which uses a plastic "cog". I had one of these break and another is feeling quite marginal. But not perfect... The gripping silicone ring falls off at a touch. I'm tired of picking it up off the floor after grinding. Some of the internal supports are plastic - I would rather they be metal for more security. Bottom line: 100% satisfied with my purchase.

Not as good as the Kuissential Evengrind

I can’t seem to get consistent partial size with this grinder. I have tried various grind settings and am always left with “boulders” in my grinds. While I don’t expect a manual grinder to be nearly as good as an electric burr grinder, I was hoping for better results, especially at the price point. Little bits of the grinds seem to get stuck in the burrs very frequently, resulting in one side of the burrs having a larger opening than the other. The Kuissential Evengrind is also about $10 cheaper and I am able to get a much more consistent grind with it. The Hario is now becoming my backup grinder unfortunately.

Don't use a drill on it

Grind quality is mediocre, and it takes a very long time to produce grounds. Thus I lost patience and made the poor choice of using a cordless drill with a small hex socket on the bolt where the handle attaches. However, there are too many plastic parts in the grinder assembly for it to hold up to such mistreatment. It disintegrated after two months of abuse, and now is in the landfill.

Shaft is bent or grind burr hole is off-center

When rotating the shaft, the gap between the burrs changes, indicating a bent shaft (unlikely) or a hole or other component on the moving part that is non-concentric. I‰Ûªve taken it apart several times and cannot find a way to fix it. I‰Ûªm 95% sure it‰Ûªs a manufacturing error. The resulting grind is consistently inconsistent, owing to the constantly changing gap between the burrs. Please advise.

Off-center; burrs do not align

I bought this after reading various glowing reviews and viewing favorable videos about this grinder. After using it a couple of times and disassembling it to clean, I noticed that the burrs were considerably non-aligned; meaning that there was a big gap on one side of the ring and a small one on the other. This also means you will get an inconsistent grind and that the burrs would make contact and wear down if you were to use it for a fine grind.

Skerton Pro Hand Grinder Review

I really like the fact that this little machine is non electric and well made. However, grinding the coffee takes me much longer than anticipated.

Inconsistent Grind - They Didn't Fix Anything.

Huge disappointment. I can move the burr back and forth with my fingers with very light pressure, and it is grossly off-center. The grind is wildly inconsistent on any setting, with excessive fines (dust), large chunks, and everything in between. It feels like Hario didn't bother to test the thing after making the changes, because it's performance is just as bad as the old version. I expected better from them and am very disappointed with this purchase. I will be returning it. The search for a hand grinder that doesn't suck continues...
