Whether you're looking to blend up your favorite whole spices, or wish to create a custom marinade, spice grinders are a fun and easy tool that will take your dishes to the next level. A cousin to the trusty food processor, choose any spice of your choosing, from whole spice leaves to coffee beans, and watch it transform into a ground spice blend before your eyes.
The options for this handy tool are endless, and you can choose how finely you wish to grind your favorite spices. From electric grinders to manual models, we've researched the best spice grinders for your needs.
There are several great spice grinders out there, but the Secura Electric Coffee and Spice Grinder earned the best overall spot for a few reasons. One of the biggest is that it has two separate milling bowls, one thats designed for chopping and the other thats made for grinding.
Aside from the fact that having two bowls helps prevent melding of flavors while grinding, the different blade systems ensure that youre getting the right grind for whatever spice or ingredient youre using. The bowls also have measurement markings on the inside so you can easily add what you need without using separate measuring spoons (unless you want to).
The Secura also brings power in a compact, counter-friendly size. The 200-watt motor can easily handle most spices as well as larger items like nuts or coffee beans, while the built-in overheat protection extends its lifespan so you can keep it around for a while.
If you need a spice grinder that can handle larger quantities of spices for batch cooking or meal prepping, the Cuisinart Spice and Nut Grinder is one of the largest and most powerful options out there. It has a 90 gram (or just over 3 ounce) bowl size and a 200-watt motor that was designed to tackle bigger spice-grinding jobs.
Probably unsurprisingly, KitchenAid, one of the leaders in kitchen gadgets, earned the spot of best multipurpose spice grinder with its dual coffee and spice grinder. Unlike other grinders, which require thorough cleaning between different spicesor when you switch from coffee grinding to spice grindingthe KitchenAid comes with three separate stainless steel grinding bowls.
These bowls allow you to quickly grind three different spices at a time without the transfer of flavor that inevitability happens when youre using the same bowl for the entire job. There are also two storage lids, so if you grind more than you need, you can pop a lid on two of the bowls and save it in your pantry for later.
Although there arent any programmed settings that allow you to control grind size, the grinder comes with a clear lid that allows you to see what youre doing so you can stop grinding when your spices reach the desired fineness.
Unlike other grinders, which can be obnoxiously loud, the Krups Silent Vortex Electric Grinder was designed with quiet in mind. If youre an early morning cook or you need something that gets the job done during a childs afternoon nap, the Krups is probably the best choice for you.
It comes equipped with patent-pending Vortex Spin Technology that helps pull ingredients into its blades for grinding thats as quiet as it is efficient. It has a one-touch push button that you can hold down for continuous grinding or tap to pulse grind.
The stainless steel grinding bowl is removable and comes with a storage lid, so if you need to store spices, you can pop the lid on and put it right into your pantry. However, unlike the KitchenAid, the Krups only comes with one grinding bowl, so you wont be able to grind new spices while youre storing any.
The Shardor Coffee and Spice Grinder was expertly designed to be the perfect cooking multi-tasking tool. It comes with two stainless steel bowls. The first is a two-blade grinder bowl that handles dry items, like spices and coffee beans. The other is a four-blade chopper bowl that can wet-grind garlic and herbs like basil, eliminating the need for manual mincing as you cook.
This also makes the Shardor an excellent choice for anyone with problems with manual dexterity, especially since, instead of pressing down on an on/off button, you can activate the motor by pushing down on the entire lid instead.
If youre looking for a budget-friendly way to freshly grind spices, the Brentwood Coffee and Spice Grinder gets the job done at a great price. While most electric spice grinders cost around $40 to $50, you can get the Brentwood grinder for under $20.
The 150-watt motor is slightly less powerful than some of the others on this list, but it easily can give you a medium-fine to coarse grind. It may have a little trouble pulling off a super fine grind, but thats generally not necessary for most cooking needs anyway.
If you dont need the power of an electric grinder, but you still want an easy and effective way to add some freshly ground spices to your dishes, the Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Grinder is one of the most user-friendly manual spice grinders on the market.
It has a door on the front of its body that you can open and use to easily fill the spice chamber with one dried spice or a combination to create your own spice blend. Unlike other manual spice grinders that require you to turn the handle in a full circle, the Kuhn has an ergonomic ratchet handle that you toggle back and forth to grind.
And its made of ceramic stone so, even after frequent use, it wont break down and corrode. Out of all the best spice grinders on the list, the Kuhn may also be the easiest option to clean. Instead of washing or putting it through the dishwasher, all you have to do is add some coarse salt to the chamber and grind it to clean the blades.
If you need a spice grinder mainly for salt and pepper, the Epare Dual Manual Mill can handle both at the same time. Its dual design combines two separate chambers in a sleek space-saving device that has separate milling blades on each end. Dials on the end of each blade cap allow you to independently control the fineness and coarseness of each spice.
And even though the design is sleek, each chamber, which can handle even the toughest spices like rock salt and whole peppercorns, is large enough to fit a full cup of spices. The chambers are also clear, so you can easily see when youre running low and need to refill.
If you need a spice grinder that can do it all, the Secura Electric Coffee and Spice Grinder has two grinding bowls that can manage all of your kitchen tasks. If you need a bulk-grinding option, you might want to go with the Cuisinart Spice and Nut Grinder, which has a larger capacity, instead.

We have three types of pulverizers to offer you for the grinding of spices as under :- 1. D. P. Mini pulverizer is a very simple type of pulverizer. The grinding chamber consists of a serrated ratchet liner on top, and screen at the bottom for classification. Feed material is passed into grinding chamber through a hopper manually. The ground power is collected in a through fitted below the screen, depending on the desired fineness, the number of operations could be 2 or 3 in different types of sieves. During the grinding process, a small quantity of air is generated, to remove this air a Polyester dust bag is fixed below the through and the other end of the bag is hung at a height, also acting like a dust collector.
Our D.P. Mini Pulverizers are exclusively ideal for the grinding of small quantity of spices, especially for high value condiments like, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, nutmeg, pulses, sugar with a capacity from 5 Kgs. To 60 Kgs. Per hour, more ever this machine is also highly capable of grinding wet and pulpy material, like green/red chilly sauce, fresh ginger garlic paste, and other wet and allied food products. The attached illustrated & informative catalog of D.P. Mini Pulverizer attached over separate following e-mails will give you a thorough idea of the type of equipment manufactured by us. We give here below production figures for the same :-
2. Our D.P. Hammer Mill (Screen type Machine) is more efficient than compared to the Mini Pulverizer, with better grinding efficiency. The grinding chamber consists of a serrated liner on top and screen at the bottom, a blower is fitted to suck the ground powder, below the screen driven on the same shaft. At times due to higher oil content in spices, there are chances of the screen getting clogged with spices, thus chocking the grinding chamber. The material passes through the blower and gets discharged through the cyclone through a one way valve. The air generated in the grinding chamber passes out through the cyclone outlet on top. A Polyester dust bag can be fitted above the cyclone working like a dust collector, or we can offer you a totally enclosed dust collector (manually shaken type) or a pulse air type dust collector, the choice we however leave it to your kind decision. The attached illustrated catalog will also brief you about the type of machine manufactured by us.
Our D.P. Hammer Mills are exclusively meant for the grinding of Chillies, Coriander, Dry ginger, Black Pepper, Turmeric and Curry powders, on a large scale basis. These spices are ground in a two / three stage operation, depending on the fineness desired, i.e. The breaking of the spice in a large hole screen for the first operation, and the subsequent fine grinding done in a fine hole screen for the second and third operation. We give here below production figures for the same.
