Zinc alloy herb grinder for $9


[Read the post]


So that’s what the kids are calling it these days?


sure, as “herbs” is a fixed term the boring kind must be qualified somehow


Is this another post about pollen for me to embarrass myself with?


But other than cumin, what’s it useful for?


Zinc alloy isn’t a selling point. There’s a reason it’s used for die cast toys. It’s cheap to mold, but not known for tight tolerances or strength.


“culinary herbs”? Oh yeah.


How odd it is that none of the companies from whom I purchase herbs happen to sell cumin buds. Cumin seeds, sure, but no buds. I feel like I’m missing out on a special culinary experience!


@frauenfelder the aluminum ones are much better made, and don’t cross-thread as badly.

I strongly prefer one with five pieces, giving you three different grades of grind. It’s even cheaper right now:


Here in Colorado we use those for grinding marijuana. You should visit and give it a try someday.


psssst…same here in California…


In Utah they’re used for grinding one’s mint tea.


I have to say I am embarrassed: last time this came up I thought it was all abut spice grinding… now we know!


I"m trying to imagine the volume of cumin you use to need a machine to grind it. Especially since cumin is so much more potent now than my 80’s college days when you needed a bale to season your curry.


We’re only cumin. Born to rub on steaks.


I like my Space Case grinder. Very nicely machined.


Not based on the significant portion of my teen years living in Utah…

Ok. That’s a lie. No one “ground” weed back then. We were lucky to find it.


That Postum ain’t gonna roast itself


Seriously, fuck Amazon. Honkies don’t have PayPal.


Amazon doesn’t take Bitcoin either.
