A good but fragile grinder
on 5 June 2012
This grinder is exactly what I needed. Grinding up seeds (pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, linseed) is very easy to do. For the price paid it is an absolute bargain. I would say it has been used nearly every day for a minute or two. A word of advice, if grinding things up very finely, don't go beyond 20-25 seconds. Even though it says 30 seconds on the lid. Just give it a bit of time in between. I have found that 20-25 seconds is more than enough time to grind to powder. If you grind several loads at a time (like I do) it is very simple and not time consuming at all. Will be having a crack at coffee soon.
A down side is when cleaning the grinder, it is not possible to remove the blades. A brush gets the majority of trapped powder out and a wipe clean with a damp cloth does the job. It is just a bit more awkward.
I used to store the grinder with the cap off and the plug in the dish. Not realising that the plug had cracked the plastic cap onto of the blades. Since then bits of the cap and plastic surround have broken off. Today enough of the plastic surround was broken that the blade came loose and so the grinder is now broken and pretty much useless
Overall, a good grinder but treat it with more care than I did if you want it to last
