hello i was wondering if anyone uses a coffee grinder for nuts. which one is a good one. is the cheap ones good or do i need a more expensive one that has different grinding settings? the cheap ones look easy to clean, but the ones with grinding options makes me wonder about if the nuts will get stuck and i won;t be able to clean it. but does the cheap one do a good job? i have a cheap blender and a good food processor but nuts are still a problem grinding them so i figured i would ask you. any help is very much appreciated.

Nuts are softer than coffee, so a cheap one does the job just fine.

I actually dont get the whole grinder thing when for the same price or less you can get a mini electric chopper which does way more than chop nuts-does garlic, onions, carrots, kale, broccoli, ice cream, etc.

I have a nut grinder that you do by hand- like a pepper grinder. I think it was $5 and I love it!

I just have a small cheap one and I've been using it for at least 10 years....it works great. Now that I'm eating raw, I use it alot more and I would like one that is a little bigger but I will definately be going for the easy clean type.

when i went raw and went off coffee, i turned my coffee grinder into a nut/seed grinder. it was pretty cheap, and worked just fine.... for awhile. then it straight up died on me. i think it was because I had to keep washing it out. So just yesterday, I bought a new coffee grinder, but this time, it has a removable metal cup for the nuts/seeds, so when I wash it, I don't have to endanger the motor. I'm really pleased about this and hoping it'll make it last a lot longer. It was $30 - which isn't the cheapest, granted, but I'm hoping it'll last a nice, long time.

I use an All Purpose Grinder, Food Processor and the Vita=Mix. Which ever one I come across First.
