Mr. Coffee Electric Coffee Grinder – Spice Grinder – Item of the Day — 12 Comments

  1. I own this Grinder and can say whew doggy! It’s the best one I’ve ever used. Simple, easy to use and just works.

  2. Another use for a good coffee grinder: I was baking once and found out i didn’t have any powdered sugar… So… Just put regular suger in the grinder and made my own powdered sugar… Beats having to run out to town just because you forgot one ingredient. LOL

    • Great point, another use I discussed on air today is making panko breadcrumbs into fine panko breadcrumbs.

  3. That’s funny cause i just ordered that grinder the other day to try out.

  4. I grind enough flax seed for a month, and keep it in a container in my pantry. Then I sprinkle 2 tsp of it on my yogurt in the morning. Flax seed is a natural anti-oxident and it tastes like almonds, sort of.

    • I originally got a coffee grinder for the same purpose. I use the ground flax seed on oatmeal as well. Now I use the grinder to make rubs. My 11 yr old daughter has taken a liking to making the rubs now as well. Mainly because she gets to run the spice grinder.

  5. I bought one of these grinders used at salvation army, and I LOVE it! I don’t need 2 grinders any more. If I want to grind spices,I just take the cup and lid off and run them through the dish washer, then I do the same before I make coffee in it again. My girlfriend’s little brother used it to grind his “smokable herbs” and even that came right out in the wash.

  6. Since someone has already asked about stick cinnamon, I’m going to ask about nutmeg… 😀
    Might be smarter to just grate nutmeg especially since it’s rarely used in large quantities, but has anyone made the attempt at grinding nutmeg in these grinders?
