This grinder is like the “iPhone” of grinders being stylish, compact and working flawlessly. You have plenty of colors to choose from, and it’s made 100% in the USA.
This grinder not only looks good but works good, like all of the Homegrown grinders.
The first thing you will notice is that there are a multitude of colors to choose from.Below are all the available colors.
If you don’t know which color or colors to choose, I can tell you that for this 2 piece grinder the green and black look fantastic with the gold yellow being the most popular option.
Now let’s take a closer look at what makes Cali Crusher from the Homegrown series so special and why I consider it one of the best options on the market for a 2 piece grinder. 2.35 inches in diameter and 1 inch tall.
The first thing that will strike you when you unpack it is the nice feeling to the touch as it’s made from aerospace grade aluminum which also makes is incredibly lightweight especially when compared to other similar size grinders. And one thing I’d like to mention here is the blasted exterior bead for scratch resistant finish. If you’ve have a grinder before, you know this is a definite plus. It is even rated medical grade as an ultrasonic cleanse leaves the grinder free of metal shavings and CNC fluid. Then there is the superior closure that you will notice right away as the closing system contains neodymium rare earth magnets.
These features alone place this particular grinder within the top of the premium grinders on the market. As they say in the infomercials “but wait there’s more”.
Once you open the grinder and also put it to use you will notice another set of unique features. Let’s take a look at them.
In the zoomed picture above you will notice quite a few different things.
But let’s start with the most obvious, that being the thin removable poly-o strip that eases shredding, then there is the margins of edges which are neither completely rounded nor flat, they are in-between both which make the shredding process a breeze. Now, while you might find similar features at other premium grinders it’s the teeth of the grinder that make the Homegrown series so special. Notice the shape of the teeth in the image below. This is what puts this grinder at the top of the premium grinders.
The Cali Crusher Homegrown grinders feature a patented dual action radial cut teeth that insure maximum shredding with very little to no friction. I have to confess that this is one of my favorite grinders for shredding weed. No other grinder comes close, because it is well designed and it works flawlessly.
Overall I can only fully recommend this grinder or any other one from the Homegrown series. Just make sure you grab and original designed and manufactured in San Diego, CA.
