Answer:
I grind flax seed with this grinder. It turns flax seed in to a fine pulp I use for my smoothies. I use two tablespoons of flax seeds in this grinder at a time, pulse it a few times and then run it continuously for about 10 or so seconds and the flax seeds are nicely ground.

The bottom of the bowl where the blade is, is metal for about 1/2" to 3/4" in the deepest part in the center.

Above that it is white plastic and the smoky colored plastic cap fits down into this area while grinding. My new grinder has no chipping, and my old Krups grinder, (same design, purchased and used since the mid '80's!) has only one tiny bit of chipping on the very edge of the plastic cap. But it was used daily grinding coffee beans. My old grinder has held up over those 30 years better than I have. LOL! The cap on my old grinder did not cloud up over time. see less

Answer:
Definitely. With 200 watts it will grind coffee to a powder. You just need to determine how long to hold the top down for grinding. 10 seconds should just about do it, but I only use French press to make coffee so you will have to use trial and error to determine your own preference.

Answer:
Yes, steel. Appears to be stainless. When filled with coffee beans, completes grinding in aprx 5 seconds. I'm very satisfied and for the money, pleasantly surprised. Good luck.

Answer:
Yes, I believe so. But you have to be diligent about, of course, not grinding it too long. For me, I make enough for three cups and about five seconds does it. So I'd suggest starting out a few seconds at a time till you are comfortable with "hearing" it's just the way you want it. If I let it go two or three secon… see more Yes, I believe so.

So I'd suggest starting out a few seconds at a time till you are comfortable with "hearing" it's just the way you want it. If I let it go two or three seconds too long, it is no longer coarse ground. Hope this helps. see less

Answer:
Since the cylinder housing is all in one piece there is no way to exchange cups. However, if you are looking for a fine grind in seconds it would be well worth it to buy two. And fewer parts mean less breakage. I hope this helps...

Answer:
I keep the grinder for coffee for coffee alone. If we are talking about spices, there is often a sort of co-mingling in the course of a dish so it isn't that important if there is a little mix in the flavorings. I do wish it very carefully with detergent and water but would not guarrantee no cross-contamination.
