Ongrok was first introduced to me via one of my helpful staff members, she was particularly excited when I arrived one morning, and we then spent the day ogling their catalogue. I have since gone a little crazy and pretty much ordered their entire line-up for my shelves and to say I was excited when the boxes arrived is a slight understatement!
Designed in North America (AKA Canada) with what I would describe as a modern minimalistic flair. High quality materials are their go to; natural hardwoods, aircraft-grade aluminium as well as eco-friendly materials. Products that are sleek as well as discrete, a range designed with lifestyle in mind.
As for the name? Comes from the work “Grok”, a term used in Robert Heinlein’s novel – Stranger in a Strange Land. Definition? To understand something deeply, intuitively or by empathy. Which is exactly the philosophy Ongrok stands by!
Grinders are everywhere now, all manner of grinders made from various materials in different sizes. My in-store grinder cupboard is getting quite full and I was going to wait a while until I added to the line-up. But then I found Ongrok and all that changed! The EZ Grinder is designed to take a beating and is made from aircraft grade aluminium and comes apart into 4 pieces. A screen is included, and the bottom is for kief collection. The 33 teeth are triangular in shape (a weird triangle) and will provide a medium to fine grind.
A few features make this a standout grinder for me including the following;
- Easy open and locking – A quarter turn function enables you to open/close the grinder (main compartment) with minimal effort. Medicinal marijuana users who suffer from mobility issues in their hands may appreciate this function. The lid stays in place via a powerful magnet.
- Removeable screen – A very underrated feature that I wish more brands would utilise. In general screens are inbuilt, impacting on cleaning and making them irreplaceable. Not so with this grinder, Ongrok has designed it so that the screen lifts out incredibly easy via a handle of sorts. Remove it to clean or remove it to create more storage space.
- Large storage zone – Ongrok put a lot of thought into the size of this grinder as they wanted it to be compact/easily transportable whilst having the largest storage area they could craft. 63mm diameter is the size they settled on, which does actually provide a nice amount of room. Ongrok really wanted enough space to fit a small/mini humidity pack along with your herbal material. How very professional of them!
- Puck compatibility – You can purchase the Ongrok Aluminium Storage Pucks separately and they are interchangeable with any EZ 4-Piece Grinder. Basically, the very bottom portion of this grinder can be swapped out with the Ongrok Puck. The puck is a small on-the-go aluminium storage container.
