Two burnt out!,
This review is from: James Martin Spice Grinder ZX789 with James Martin Spices Recipe Booklet, White/ Black (Kitchen & Home)
I brought this spice grinder as a replacement for a very old grinder that had stood the test of time exceptionally well. The first one I bought worked perfectly well for the first 4 uses and was an extremely good spice grinder meeting my requirements. On the 5th use it unfortunately burnet out! - despite being within the specified maximum time periods, and the grinder not being overly filled or holding 'hard' spices the grinder gave a little pop, a puff of smoke and stopped working.
I returned this and received a replacement and on the 2nd time of usage exactly the same story - this time after about 5 seconds of use and with the grinder not even being on at the time!!!
I appreciate that this is cheap but it might be worth shopping around, or investing an extra view quid - I wonder if James Martin even realises what he's put his name to!!!

I had exactly the same thing. Worked brilliantly well until it died in a puff of smoked the third time it was used (to grind one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds). It lasted 2 days. Do not buy.
