Product Description

Product Description

William Bounds Chrome 3-1/4"H Nutmeg Twister MillAdd fresh nutmeg to all your favorite recipes with this mill. This mill will shave tiny flakes of nutmeg on top of a cappuccino or dessert. It has a chrome base and a clear acrylic top. The crank handle has a decorative heart shape cutout.Model #: 07000 Material: Chrome Clear acrylic top Heart shaped cutout in handle Height: 3-1/4" Lifetime warranty on mechanisms against wear Weight: .6 lb 410186


For flavoring white sauces, custards, baked goods, spinach, potatoes, squash, eggnog, and coffee drinks such as cappuccino, nutmeg is indispensable. The fullness of nutmeg's delicate benediction, however, is only found in fresh gratings or shavings. Preground or powdered nutmeg is a faint imitation. Grating hard, brown little nutmegs, however, imperils soft, pink little fingertips. This solid, sturdy, compact nutmeg mill eliminates the danger. Turn a smooth-action chrome crank and from a corrosion-resistant shaver in the mill's chrome bottom cascade tiny, precise nutmeg bits. And the mill comes fully stocked--five nutmegs await their turns in storage beneath a tough, clear acrylic top. Impaled on prongs, a sixth is thrust against the shaver by a strong spring. A simple twist separates the mill's top and bottom when it's time to impale another nutmeg. Band-Aids not included, because they're not needed. --Fred Brack

I, too, had the same complaints about this grinder evidenced by many of the unhappy reviewers .... until I discovered it isn't the grinder, but the nutmegs which came with it that were at fault; they were too soft. Perhaps the included nutmegs were stale, or perhaps I had allowed them to be subjected to high humidity, but until I had exhausted the supply which came with the grinder I constantly had to fidget with the nut to keep it shaving. Most frustrating was when the bosses that are supposed to impale the nut to fix it rigidly to the spindle simply chew a circle in the top of the nut while the blade holds it motionless from below.

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.

I have owned this nutmeg mill for over 2 years - a gift from my wife. The mill is good-looking and has the great advantage of keeping the nutmegs together with the tool. Its storage capacity is 4 to 5 average size nutmegs under the acrylic, plus one nutmeg being grated.
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.

I saw this grinder on display at a small kitchenware shop and gave it a few turns. It easily produced a cloud-like drift of the thinnest possible nutmeg shavings! Of course, I bought one, but mine never worked remotely as well. It had all the problems described at length by other reviewers -- the spring slipping, the need to constantly readjust, not being capable of grinding the whole bean, seemingly not sharp enough. It was so different from the demo grinder that I contacted William Bounds and they sent me a replacement. It was to no avail. Wm. Bounds company advises putting the nutmeg into the receptacle, and then turning it upside down to screw the top on. I've faithfully done this, with marginal results and this action must be repeated many times during the life of one nutmeg bean. Apparently, some people have gotten a good model, which means that Wm. Bounds should really be taken to task for their poor quality control. I see that Peugeot is producing a similar grinder, and it may be worth trying. Or, since Wm. Bounds guarantees their products for life, I might just send this one back and try again. There is a $6 shipping fee; mail to: Wm. Bounds, Ltd., Attn: Repairs, 3737 W. 240th St., Torrance CA 90505 with your grinder, the description of the problem ("doesn't work"), your return address. Or there is always a little microplane grater at a much lower price, which works wonderfully.

I could take or leave the nutmeg that you get in a shaker jar. But I absolutley love fresh ground! I put it in my coffee, and if a dessert calls for ground nutmeg I'll grind it fresh. That is why I was thrilled to find a nutmeg mill of this quality.
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.
