  1. During my research I've found some grinders with removable screens so you can easily clean them and replace them which should extend the life of the grinder significantly. So far I've only seen a couple models with them and they're also taller than your typical 4 piece grinder because they have a bigger collection chamber with clear walls to look at it, which is cool, but I don't think I want it to be taller than a typical 4 piece model. Does anyone know of any brands that have removable screens but aren't taller? And how useful have you found them if you have one? (Because I'm having custom art put on the top as a gift, I want the grinder itself to be able to last a LONG time, even if I have to pay more. I'm looking for a 2.5" diameter.)

    Secondly, metal. Which is better aluminum or zinc? Is there any actual proof that either of these can cause health issues or make the bud taste bad as compared with stainless steel (which is SO expensive) or is it a marketing ploy?
