    Unless you need two grinders Paul, I'd put the money into a better 'burr' grinder. That'll be the best for spices.

    Hi KP,

    I was looking at burr grinders on Amazon as I'd ruled out a bladed grinder due to my last one performing poorly as a spice grinder. But reading the reviews of the 2 blade Krupps, loads of people seem to be very happy with them for spice grinding. I don't know which one to go for really

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Hi all, I've been thinking of a grinder recently, but always wondered which one. Now you Have mentioned the differences produced in the end meal, it almost seems a must have bit of kit. Am I right in assuming that restaurants grind their own too?

    All the takeaways I know of use packet spices Jasone. Chances are, most restaurants do the same.

    cheers,

    Don't try that at home kids....
    Welcome to the site, by the way.

    Ferret,

    So what your saying is that you converted your Moulinex into a Rocket

    I have used a moulinex for about 20 years bought for 17 from the co-op.
    The lid safety mechanism started playing up a few years ago and I accidentally took the lid off while it was grinding. Spices went everywhere
    It seems to be Ok now. Maybe a whole piece of spice got lodged and fooled the safety latch.
    Anyway I wouldn't be without one as they are so quick and it allows me to buy whole spices and I understand that whole spices last longer in your store cupboard.

    Hi, new Member.. thought I would reboot the spice grinder topic. I see the last post was 2008. Hopefully things have moved on a bit now. What's every one using now, I guess you need your spices to be ground fairly fine, or the curry will be grainy.
    Some one mentioned a burr grinder has any one got one. I imagine they are expensive. What's The current general consensus on spice grinders at the moment?
    Thanks
