I love this grinder so much. It grinds dry spices in an instant and also grinds garlic/ginger/onions, in small quantities, without the need to add water, to abet grinding. I had a Krups grinder before which used to pack up after every two months. This grinder is much much better, and at a lower price and the best thing about it is that you can wash the grinding cup and lid in the dishwasher as well. Thanks Wahl !!
