A proper weed grinder is one of the most important accessories in your setup. But you can’t just use any grinder. You need one that grinds your buds effectively and evenly to make it easier to light up.
An SLX grinder is a great alternative if you need a reliable device but don’t want to spend a lot of money. They never get stuck thanks to their 55 razor-sharp teeth, and they’re made from high-quality materials including ceramic coating.
If you’re thinking of getting a grinder, this review is for you.

The SLX 2.0 Grinder is famous for the smooth texture it gives all dry herbs. It is designed with high-quality non-stick materials, so it does not have to be cleaned frequently. This grinder does not require you to exert a lot of energy in grinding – everything runs smoothly.
This unit features 55 trapezoidal teeth made out of 7075 T6 aluminum to prevent cross-threading, bent and broken teeth, or other damage.
The SLX grinder also comes with drum-tight fine micron size stainless steel screens. These screens are to ensure that only the pollen of your herb gets filtered. And to make sure that this device does not leave your herb in pieces.
This device also features rare earth magnets. These neodymium magnets ensure the SLX 2.0 does not pop open at any time, and it also provides that the flavor and scent of your herbs are still intact after you finish grinding.
Find it in two sizes: 2 and 2.5 inches. Both versions are much smaller than many other grinders available today. The SLX 2.0 Grinder is available in different colors including charcoal, silver, gold, purple, green, and yellow.
Operating this dry herb grinder is easy. The SLX 2.0 Grinder comes fitted with indentures printed on the top cap that makes rotating it easier. You can use the SLX 2.0 like any other grinder – the only difference is that you don’t have to apply a lot of pressure. It grinds smoothly.
This dry herb grinder features a non-stick ceramic coating that makes it harder for the dry herb to get stuck in it. But this does not mean that the SLX Grinder would always be dirt-free. Like other grinders, there tends to be a build-up of residue in the SLX. However, this build-up takes longer than other brands.
We recommend that you clean up your grinder occasionally. However, SLX says this dry herb device does not need cleaning.
If you are convinced that you need to clean your SLX grinder, you must take the top and bottom pieces off. Then clean the inside of the SLX grinder using a soft, dry brush.
For deeper cleaning, you can also use an alcohol solution to clean your grinder. You can choose to clean your SLX grinder at least once a month or as frequently as you want.
The SLX 2.0 Grinder does not contain any Teflon or PTFE. Although PTFE fumes are toxic when inhaled, some manufacturers use them in their grinders. SLX never uses any Teflon, PTFE coatings or any carcinogenic materials in its grinders.
SLX is based in Vermont, United States. All SLX grinders by this company have been certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Besides grinders, SLX also produces rolling trays.
You can choose to buy directly from the SLX online store or via other retail stores like eBay or Amazon. You can get the 2-inch SLX 2.0 Grinder for $50.00 via Amazon.
