1.0 out of 5 stars Not as good in my experience, 30 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: T&G CrushGrind Spice Mill, Black, 125 mm (Kitchen & Home)
I bought this mill on the basis of other recommendations here, and intended to use it for grinding spices, cloves and cardamoms in particular. For both of these it was utterly useless, getting continually clogged up with the cardamom shell and not coping well with the cloves either. It was also taking an absolute age to grind both of these spices and was a total waste of time.

Oh dear, oh dear... You never grate cardamom with the skin, you only grind the black seeds inside!
And this task this spice mill will handle just perfect. And why on earth do you want to grind cloves??? They are usually used whole and after cooking removed from the food (same like bay leaves), unless you like your food to taste like Listerin that is! So we are not much of a chef, are we mate?

I wouldn't call 30 years of cooking indian food ignorance! Sorry if I got a bit carried away, but spicemills are not designed to grind cardamom with the skin. You can stick whole cardamom, cloves and bay leaves in rice dishes like pulao (They should be removed though in the end). But if you need ground cardamom, like for sweet dishes, you have to open the pods and grind the pips only. And that is actually where this spice mill does the job, while others do not!
