Microplane Spice Mill, Black, 4.5”h

Microplane Spice Mill, Black, 4.5”h

Our Microplane Spice Mill is the ideal tool for grinding and storing hard spices that aren't suitable for our CrushGrind salt and pepper mills.

It's the best tool I've found for grinding our Red Long Pepper, Nutmeg, Star Anise, and Cinnamon.

*Head’s up. This Spice Mill is only recommended for the hard spices listed above. It won’t work well on most other spices.*

The key is the super sharp, stainless steel Microplane rasp on the bottom of the mill. The blade has 128 razor sharp, stainless steel teeth to help pulverize the hardest spices.

For Long Pepper, and Nutmeg, this mill is much more effective than a mortar and pestle. Practical and safe, too.

To operate, just pull the top from the bottom. Drop the spices inside. Push the plunger back in and twist the top while holding the bottom. The harder you push and twist, the finer the grind.

Takes about as much strength as using a mortar and pestle. And the mill works beautifully, leaving no wasted spices. Hard spices can be turned into fine powders.

I'm thrilled with the results as we can now keep our Red Long Pepper on the kitchen table right next to our regular pepper mill. We can now grind it fresh at the table, right when we need it.

The mill feels good in the hand too, as the plastic has a soft touch, matte coating. Should be hand-washed and disassembled for easy cleaning. The mill is 4.5" tall.

Fine product

My old Zyliss nutmeg grater came apart after years of service and I have searched without success for a replacement. This is it/-only much better. Gorgeous, fragrant sprinkle right away. Worth every penny.

Microplane Spice Mill

After my wife has not had good luck with nutmeg grinders, I bought this one for her for Christmas (married over 40 years, we tend to be very practical for Christmas gifts). She’s already used it several times and is thrilled how easy and consistent it is. Winner!

Microplane Spice Mill

This mill really works. I grew tired of using a mortar to grind my long pepper years ago. Now I can easily shave it into a fine powder for maximum flavor. Very happy.

Excellent tool!

Got the microplane to grind long pepper. The combination storage and grinding aspects are great, the design is good-looking, and the price was fair.

Cookery-changing simple but effective tool

I love this spice mill--I was skeptical at first, but my friend Ellen convinced me to give it a chance, and it works like a charm. I have used it for nutmeg, coriander seeds, and other hard items, and can't believe how easy and simple it is. Love the neat, compact design. It does not take strength to grind because the blades are very sharp, but they are also hidden away so that there's no danger of hurting your fingers etc. Cleans up nicely too. Thanks!
