Quick Overview

We are happy to offer this hand crank coffee mill from Hario - the Skerton. (I guess there is some debate about the name - some sell it as Skelton, some Skeleton. But the box says Skerton, so we are sticking with that.)


The Skerton mill has ceramic burrs and a very sturdy construction. The grind quality is very good, and the mill grinds efficiently, fairly quickly, but not too fast. Like any manual mill, it takes some elbow grease to crank out a grind. But the workout is worth it!


It has a conical burr design, so it can do a range of grinds from espresso to a passable French press grind (on the finer side of French press). The top part is plastic, the bottom is a glass jar. The top acts as a lid, so technically you could grind and then store the coffee in the base; but who would do that? It does make a handy travel grinder - especially if you remove the glass part and grind directly into a brewer, like a cone or an Aeropress. Tom has a video posted on YouTube about such a set up.


The grind adjustment is locked in place through the top mechanism. To change the setting, you unscrew the top nut, lift the bracket and spin the wheel to a different setting, then replace the bracket and then lock it in by replacing the top nut. So in essence it is a stepped adjustment, not continuous like on the Zassenhaus models.


If you want to use another glass container to screw onto the hopper, we found that glass jars with a 2-3/4" diameter opening fit nicely. Also - there is a rubbery ring that you can put on the top of the hopper - sort of a flange to help keep the beans from sliding out. 


Dimensions: 5.5"h  x 7.5" (with handle in place) x 3.5"
