It was at a Champs Trade Show in Atlantic City New Jersey that I first saw the OTTO by Banana Bros. I watched the demonstration a couple times thru and it seemed at little too easy. The demonstrator told me that he was using hemp flower for demonstration and what he had on hand was admittedly a little dry. Then he tells me that the OTTO had a processor onboard that detected things like humidity, texture, and density to adjust the grind for consistent output. That is when I thought it might be worth checking it out for myself.
When I received the OTTO, I was ready. I had four different batches of herbs that varied greatly amongst the criteria this smart grinder was supposed to easily conquer. Well, guess what, it worked well. It worked so well, I ended up going out and getting more cones. There were 20 cones that came with the OTTO but I was sure it should only take a few more tries to be disappointed in some way or fashion. I didn’t even have to charge the thing to finish out testing to satisfaction.
To be honest, I was surprised it worked as well as it did. If you enjoy pre-rolled cones and would rather not have to deal with sticky fingers or don’t want to take the time to do it by hand, this might be just right for you. If you know someone who regularly enjoys pre-rolled cones, you might have the perfect gift.
Be warned, if you do get one for yourself or as a gift, be sure to pick up extra cones because the 20 that comes with it will be vanishing into a cloud of smoke in short order.
Overall, I like it a lot. The OTTO not only gets the job done right and with consistency but it’s also fun to play with.
