This review is from: KRUPS F203 Electric Spice and Coffee Grinder with Stainless Steel Blades, Black (Kitchen)
I work as a chef and we use coffee grinders frequently for grinding spices. Because there is no commercial-use version of a spice grinder (or at least not an affordable one), we are always burning through these standard coffee grinders. I have used many different ones and have seen many of them die after short, abusive lives. Professional kitchens are not kind to equipment of any kind. Things get beat up or neglected. And coffee/spice grinders are usually the most susceptible.
However, this Krup grinder is one of the most hearty I have used. As long as the plastic lid/cup doesn't crack (I've only seen that happen once), this thing will last forever. It is durable, grinds spices to fine powder, and is reasonably easy to clean. There may be other coffee grinders out there with bells and whistles, or flashy designs, but if you just need something to grind your coffee (or spices) and isn't going to die in six months, this is it. Strongly recommended.
