[Read the post]


#2

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


#3

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


#4

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


#5

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


#6

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.


#7

“culinary herbs”? Oh yeah.


#8

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.


#11

psssst…same here in California…


#12

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


#13

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


#14

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.


#15

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


#16

I like my Space Case grinder. Very nicely machined.


#17

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.


#18

That Postum ain’t gonna roast itself


#19

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

Amazon doesn’t take Bitcoin either.
