If you have read my post Plant-Based Food Introduction, you will know that we believe in and follow a whole food plant-based diet for its many many benefits. I mentioned in that post that there are a few items that I feel are invaluable to this type of diet, that make life a lot more interesting as well as easier. I published a post on the Russell Hobbs Mix & Go Mini Blender and now second to that is the Krups Electric Spice and Coffee Grinder.
I do not use this Grinder for coffee beans but to grind other whole foods. Read on to see why I really like this machine and what you can do with it.
I use this grinder to grind up:
- Herbs and spices
It is my favourite piece of equipment and I even brought it in my luggage all the way from South Africa to Spain. These are the reasons that I can highly recommend this wonderful machine:
- The first amazing thing about this grinder is that I bought it in 2013 and it is still going strong! I have not had one single problem with it. Very unusual for any product nowadays!
- It is really powerful and grinds up nuts extremely well and quickly.
- I love simplicity, and all you do with this machine is push down on one button to get it to work, yay! It also has a lid activated safety switch.
- It has stainless steel blades.
- It is so easy to clean, which is a huge bonus.
- I have dropped the lid a couple of times and it does not even have a scratch on it. A very hardy and well made product.
- It is much smaller and easier to store than a food processor and it is the perfect size and weight for travelling.
A little bit of information about Krups, a German kitchen appliance manufacturer, from their website:
Since 1846, the KRUPS saga has been marked by innovations, feats of daring, and iconic products, all designed to meet the needs of its clients… The KRUPS story is one of a passion for details. Robert Krups originally produced high-precision scales. They were so reliable they made him a household name. He once said “My most profound wish is to achieve the highest level of technical perfection with my products”. His wish has been granted, to the delight of millions of customers around the world. https://www.krupsusa.com/history-krups
A fantastic addition to anyone’s kitchen, and they are very reasonably priced.
A reminder that I am not paid to write reviews on products, therefore they are my honest unbiased opinions.
Enjoy being healthy!
