Hello Spice Barons!

I want to make my own rub using some whole spices. I ended up buying a Cuisinart DCG-12BC coffee bean grinder for spice ginding. I'm starting to
think that I might have paid a little too much for a spice grinder ($29.00). I'm also reading some mixed reviews on that model. I'm starting to think
that for that kind of money I could get one of those tiny food processors
for spice grinding. Your thoughts?

Best Regards,
SSL

Just use your blender and then you don’t have another appliance taking up space.

I got a toastmaster coffee grinder for $10 that works just fine. You can't adjust the grind, but it works pretty good.

I don't see any sense buying an expensive grinder, just a whirly-type grinder will do. However, don't vheap out too much because blade-quality and horsepower does affect how finely you can grind it. Some spices are best as a fine powder. A cheaper model (but not ultra cheap) can do this if you run it long enough. I usually spend about $40 on a spice grinder. I like being able to remove the grinding chamber so it can be washed out if needed. Sometimes just grinding salt or rice in them does not really remoove everything. If you are grinding hab's, then this can become important.
