Porlex mini burr replacement?

Recommended Posts

My much love Porlex mini hand grinder that serves me well after a year of 4 times daily use at last seems to be losing its edge a bit.  I love this wee grinder, I use it at home and it gets popped in my work bag daily,  after purchasing another for my partner I realise that mine is a bit worse for ware now and takes quite a bit more grunt to get through the beans compared to the new one. It gets cleaned out once or twice a week. Can the ceramic burrs just be replaced or is there something more going on in there that means its just had it now?

 

Thank you and kind regards

I got my Porlex Mini from there. Was cheaper than anywhere I would find in the uk at the time. Took a bit longer to arrive but I wasn’t bothered about that. I think if you sign up for their newsletter they will send a 5% discount code too.

Thank you all for your help.
New burrs it is then
Or spend a bit more & get the aergrind in the for sale section. The steel burrs are worth the extra.
