[...] This was with a dedicated Kenwood CG-100 (circa GBP 56 -- GBP 75)...
... which died yesterday, whilst making breadcrumbs to coat shaggy parasol mushrooms (Chlorophyllum rhacodes) which have just come into season around here , as have the shaggy ink caps (Coprinus comatus).  Ah well, back to pre-ground spices until I can afford a new one  :(

I took my James Martin spice grinder back to Agos yesterday.
I had not been particularly happy with it as it seemed a bit fiddly and I could see the fragile on button breaking at some point.
After 6 months of light usage it developed vertical cracks in the clear plastic bowl.
Need to find an alternative.
I was very happy with my old moulinex which lasted about 20 years. That too developed cracks in the plastic cover. But not after 6 months.
Got my £17.99 back.
From Vesta to BIR.
Always searching for the magic! But then I give up and had a curry instead ;)

I don't think you can go too far wrong with a good old Krups F203. You'll probably find them on offer somewhere what with it being Black Friday weekend. Or more likely you'll find they're at the same price they always were, but with a "Black friday" sticker plastered on and fools climbing over each other to get to the shelves.

Twice I took it back and even had replacement from Wahl, shit. Got a cheap £10 coffee grinder now, far superior
