Topic: Zassenhaus 'Havana' grinder (9 msgs / 201 lines)
1) From: Jim Wilkins
I finally decided to buy a small manual grinder for travel (and the next
time a thunderstorm or ice storm knocks out the power for a few days). I saw
one mfg by Zassenhaus that was made with a metal and acrylic plastic.
Unfortunately, if all vendors are to be believed, it was discontinued. So I
go with the original plan, the 'Turkish' Zausenhaus that Sweet Maria's
carries. Out of stock. OK, how about the Zassenhaus 'knee-held' grinder -
also out of stock. I'm sensing a pattern. Is August the month the 'new'
models of the old and reliable grinders hit the U.S. market? All the
retailers I hit on my Google search were also out of stock.
Back to grinding a small stash for trips - how boring.

I believe Zassenhaus was just purchased by the Ray-O Company and they
are soon to release a new line of grinders with their new, patented
manual chain saw technology.

Not the best choice, but I keep a whirly blade in my luggage and use it with an aeropress.

Check Ebay Jim,
I don't know what it is like now but a couple of years ago I was collecting
the old Zausenhauses, from the beautiful turkish to the knee boxes. All
original for a German lady. I bet she is still selling them. From her mother
and grandmothers collection.

Could get a power inverter for your car, 14vdc (car battery voltage while
it's charging) in, 115vac out. A couple of hundred watts capacity should be
powerful enough for single, small appliances. Exclude toasters and coffee
pots with their high-powered heaters.
Look up JC Whitney online or an RV or motor home sales office. Just hope you
don't have to compete with the wallets of the Nouveau Riche or St. Pete's
Creakies.

I've picked up a hand mill from Hario, the Japanese manufacturer.  It
works quite well.  It also doesn't look quite so pipe-bombish if you
happen to be traveling with only a carry-on.  (TSA always takes a long
look at my Zass Turkish mill.)

Got my power inverter from Fryes, use it all the time, but mainly to
recharge electronic devices I forgot to charge at home. They had a wide
range of wattage available.
There are hand-held, non-motorized, burr grinders available for less than
$25, (Rustek Traveler Coffee Grinder, Sm + Lg). Has anyone used one? Any
comments?

Bruce,
I would definitely recommend it.  I'm not sure what the
advantages/disadvantages of ceramic burrs are, but that's what the
Hario mill that I have comes with.  It does grind a little more
unevenly at coarser grind settings than is ideal, but that's going to
be the tendency with hand mills in general.
If you'd like more info on it, feel free to email me off-list.  I know
Tom doesn't sell these, but he does sell the Zass mills, so I'd feel
more comfortable chatting about it away from the list.
