I guess it's a good "herb" grinder for the right kind of herb,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GENERIC SILVER Four Piece NEW STYLE 2 1/4" Herb, Spice or Tobacco Pollen Grinder (As shown) (Kitchen)
This is good for those people that are looking for an "herb" grinder of the special "herb" kind. If you are actually looking to crush actual cooking herbs and spices look elsewhere.
I bought it to smash spices as I read someone posted that they said goodbye to their mortar and pestle. I figured if that's what they were using it for, just like I use my mortar and pestle, then it would be great for my spices and gourmet cooking.
It wasn't. It was a bad product, it wasn't correctly described. You see on the photo that it breaks up into 4 pieces. Well I don't know if I got a defective one but the bottom piece doesn't come off on mine. How can you collect your pollen if you can't even get to it. It was really a waste of time and money. I think I'm going to stick to my mortar and pestle and if I take up the "herb" habit well, I would be a step ahead of other first time users, I guess.
Or I might just give it away to someone who has already picked up the "herb" habit.
