Summary: Heavy duty spice grinder, we have another grinder we exclusively for coffee beans. When I would use the coffee grinder to grind up whole spices, the aroma of the spice would linger into the next few coffee brews. even though my cleaning of the grinder was thorough. Tried a regular coffee grinder to use exclusively as a spice grinder and the hardness of the spice berries broke it in short order. This unit is very powerful, and makes quick work of grinding spices.
Pros: Consistent Grind, Durable, Easy To Use, Large Hopper, Reliable
Excerpt: I have an older Krups spice grinder and needed another. This model is different and a pain to separate the top from the main unit due to the safety feature. I will return this unit and find another.
Excerpt: My biggest beef is that I bought this thinking that it was Made in the USA, which most of the internet information led me believe. There is a Made In Mexico sticker on the bottom of the coffee grinder which makes me unhappy. I will use this grinder but I am annoyed about the origin of the unit. I believe in buying US products.
Summary: Didn't have a chance to put it in good use. I put some dry mint leaves in hoping it will grind into powder. The unit work for about 10 second and stopped. I can not get it to run again so I have to return it back for a refund.
Summary: I work for a seed company and we need to test the inside of seeds so we grind them. We use the grinders daily over and over again. We have ordered may other grinders but this bran has the best results. Strong, strong, great size easy to clean. Thank you!!
Pros: Consistent Grind, Durable, Easy To Use, Large Hopper, Reliable, Versatile
Excerpt: This is the very best Coffee Grinder ever made. I originally purchased one in 1990 which is still working perfectly. The only thing is I chipped the cap when I dropped it on the floor. I can still use it if I put my finger over the chip (so the ground coffee does not shoot out). I figure I would just buy a new one and use the cap and keep the new base unit for when and if the old one every finally quits.
