Electric Spice Grinder Ideas

Having an Indian herb and spice grinder to hand in the kitchen can ensure that your meals are bursting with flavor. If you love spicy foods, then a suitable grinder is a must in any kitchen.

Spices such as whole coriander or cumin have much more taste if you buy them whole and grind them yourself fresh whenever needed.

Ready-made powdered spices soon lose that just ground flavor that the best Indian cooks rely on.

Another tip to extract the most flavor is to gently toast the herbs and spices just before they are ground.

I love this spice mill. I’ve owned the same type for years its great and grinds spices to a fine powder rapidly.

It reduces whole spices into a fine powder quickly. I wouldn’t like to work in a kitchen without one! It is so simple to use just fill up the top of the grinder with whole herbs and spices, then pop the lid on.

When you depress the lid, the grinder starts up. It then stops when you move your hand away. An added advantage is it is small, so is easy to store in a cupboard until needed.

Cuisinart SG-10 Electric Spice-and-Nut Grinder

The Cuisinart SG-10 Electric Spice-and-Nut Grinder is not a hand-held version. It’s a little bigger than those smaller designs.

However, it’s just as easy to use as a hand-held grinder is and it can hold more yield than the smaller grinders can. This one has powerful stainless steel blades that make short work of either dry spices or nuts.

When you’re done, you just lift your hand to remove the pressure and the machine stops. You can choose to grind in coarse or fine yield. The way the finished product turns out is determined by the length of time you press the top of the machine.

When you want your herbs to be finer, you simply hold the top of the grinder down longer. The work bowl is stainless steel and has a separate lid so once you’re finished whatever you’re grinding, you can put the lid on and it’ll keep. This bowl is dishwasher safe.

In the third part of the grinder, the mesh screen filters what you put in and leaves you with fine herbs and spices. The mesh screen works so well that all that drops to the bottom of the grinder is a very fine pollen and you can remove that from the screen and the grinder using the pollen scraper.
