3.0 out of 5 stars OK but reservations, 12 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: James Martin by Wahl ZX595 Mini Grinder 150 Watt, Stainless Steel (Kitchen & Home)
This grinder is great and really grinds spices down a treat. I didn't think it would because the blades do not go right to the bottom of the container but I was wrong. I had trouble finding something to grind tiny, weeny mustard seeds and this grinder just zapped them within seconds. Star Annis is a pain to grind in the pestle and mortar - zap, zap and it was done in the grinder.

The reservation and the reason for 3 rather than 5 stars, is that you cannot wash the inards and spice powder comes out of the sides. I tried to wash the lid but it got water all inside the double skin and it took me ages to dry it out - won't do that again. Also, the grinder itself could do with a removable bowl so that it can be removed for washing. A really strong bristle pastry brush is very useful for brushing out residue and then use a piece of dry kitchen roll to wipe out.

We eventually contacted Wahl about the item and they let us return this grinder to them and they provided us with the newer model. The newer model allows you to take out the grinder bowl for washing and also has a small dome like thingy to put inside the grinder for use when grinding spices - this stops the ground spice powder from coming through the sides.

I'd get the newer version if I was you.

Thanks for this review. It is very useful to know if the grinder can be cleaned thoroughly and your informative description is very helpful.

Good review but for one thing: a product code for the newer version would have been extremely helpful :-)

Hi Susan, You could have done everyone a favour, or 'flavour' ouch, by adding the name of the newer model. Can you amend your review?
