Once I started buying fresher, harder nutmegs the difficulties I'd been having stopped altogether. It was really that simple. When a nut has stopped shaving (at about an eighth inch thickness) I take it out and put a fresh nut in. Once that nut has been ground flat on the bottom I can return the previous partial to the chamber, putting it below the newly flatted nut, and it continues grinding until almost completely spent. The last of it comes out in a couple of chunks, but they're smaller than I'd want to shave on a microplane or grater with my fingers.
I give the grinder 4 stars only because it (like other Wm. Bounds devices) is fiddly to clean.
However, outside of being a handsome storage box for nutmegs, it is not greatly useful. The center spring which pushes against the nutmeg being grated is not very strong, and the cutting mechanism is not strongly abrasive. As a result, the mill will stop working before a netmug is fully processed, and leave you with about 1/3 of a nutmeg which cannot be milled. Also, because of the way the spring grabs the nutmeg (through small triangular teeth), it frequently start slipping against the nutmeg it is trying to hold in place. When that happens, you can grind as much as you want but nothing will come out, since the nutmeg is not being rotated.
Altogether this is quite frustrating. It requires constant adjustment. When the nutmeg is 2/3 down you still try to get it to grind but it won't, and you feel bad about throwing the remmant away. The worst, for me, is that I don't want to stop using it since it was a gift from my wife. So I am bound to use this ineffective tool forever...
If you are interested in a nutmeg mill, check out the spring-loaded Zyliss, I don't own it (obviously) but I have heard good things about it. Either way, unless you intend to have it for display only, stay away from this mill.
This nutmeg mill works very well. I didn't get it here, I got it at a local kitchen shop, and I have never regretted the purchase! Very easy to use. Loading it is not a problem: you just turn the top counterclockwise to open it up, press the nutmeg onto the little prongs, and put it back together by pressing down on the spring and turning it clockwise. The spring inside keeps the nutmeg coming even as you've worn the piece down. However, once the piece of nutmeg is worn down to a few millimeters in thickness, the spring doesn't work as well anymore and the ground nutmeg will come out more slowly. I usually take the sliver of nutmeg out and put a new one in when that occurs. That's the only problem I've ever had with this wonderful little gadget. And it's been in my stash of kitchen gadgets for three or four years now.
My bread pudding, spice cookes, peach cobbler, and all other desserts that call for nutmeg have never gotten better reviews than when I use this great tool. Granted, everyone loved my desserts before that, but since I switched to fresh ground nutmeg, people have enjoyed my baking even more.
In short, it's the best fancy gadget I've ever purchased for my kitchen. And I've really enjoyed having it in my coffee: it gives your home-brewed cup of joe that special "ritzy coffee shop" feel. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys baking or anyone who loves fancy coffee.

great nut twister, but the nut does get caught in the blade and sometimes does not cut until you open it back up to reposition it.Published 2 months ago by shopaholic
