I have spent hours searching the www, so I think I know the answer, but has anyone found a fast and simple way to reduce 10-20g (or so) of spices to a reasonably fine powder, at modest cost? (Strange that this hasn't been covered here before, but a search doesn't find anything.)
For something like 20 years I have used a Krupps coffee grinder (actually not a grinder at all as it reduces items with 1000 cuts), which is a design much copied. Problems - not washable or dismantlable so very tricky/tedious to clean properly so that there is no carry-over, the plastic lid is attacked by the essential oils in fresh spices, which adds to the problem of carry-over, and it is not designed for more than a very few 10's of seconds use in every few minutes.
I have more than one mortar and pestle - tedious and hard work. A pepper/salt mill works well, but is way too slow to produce a tspn or so of ground spice.
