Editor's Notes

March 11, 2019:

The Medline Silent Knight remains the top choice for it's heavy duty quality and ease of operation for the weakest users, as they can use their body weight as leverage on the handle if need be, plus there is nothing for less dexterous hands to unscrew. The Equadose Grinder was moved to the second spot due to it's updated larger burr grinders that allow for larger pills to be pulverized without having to break them up first.
