Such a great device . I started grinding the hardest spices in my cabinet and ended up with a saucer plate piled up with cinnamon, star anise, and nutmeg
I needed a grinder for nut meg and hard peppercorns. It works great.
Does a great job with long pepper! Love it! Very reasonably priced, too! Highly recommend!
The mill works well, and is quite attractive. It's the best thing for grating long pepper. Does one need a grinder for just three spices (nutmeg, long pepper, and star anise-- more like 2+ spices, since star anise is mostly used whole aside from a few masala mixes? But sometimes "want" supersedes "need", especially during pandemic times. It's a relatively inexpensive indulgence.
This little grinder is a very good grinder.....however....I bought it for the white pepper corns and they constantly spill out. It grinds them well, but you cannot leave them in the grinding section because if it tips over your corns are going everywhere. I imagine it is meant for bigger herbs like cinnamon sticks, star anise, etc. Or maybe I am just too clumsy. It isn't the fault of the grinder so I gave it 5 starts because it is solid and grinds well. Just not so sure about the design where the grinding section has to be emptied every time or spills are likely.
