View Full Version : what appliance grinds fine?
02-20-2009, 11:11 PM
Besides the Vitamix and a coffee grinder, does anyone know of a good appliance for grinding nuts & seeds to a powder? I used to have an ultimate chopper that did but it died. (Actually, the blade cracked and I tossed the whole thing, not realizing I could replace the blade.) It would chop about a cup of nuts to a powder. Does anyone have anything like this that they would recommend?
I'm wondering about the Black & Decker EHC650 3-Cup 2-Speed Food Chopper? Anyone have that? If so, does it grind fine?

Personal blender from tribest, same principal as the magic bullet.

Food processors do the job for me although the results are not as fine as what I'd get from a high powered blender

Well shoot. I read this and got all excited because I have something similar to the Magic Bullet and Tribest, that I'd forgotten about. I ran to the kitchen and tried it but no go. The sesame seeds just sit there and stare at me. :D The problem may be that I'm missing the top with the flatter blade.
Is that the blade you use?
Thanks for your help!!

Black & Decker 3-Cup Chopper. Chops nuts, onions, garlic, carrots, herbs, makes chopped salads, banana ice cream, etc. It's so great that the price keeps increasing every few months. I had bought it at $14. You can find it at Target for $19.99 or buy it online for up to $25. Has almost perfect reviews.

Thank you Dimond! That's the one I was wondering about. It really does have great reviews, even on Target's site. I'll swing by there and pick one up. Nice you got it at such a great price.
Oh... does it grind sesame & flax too?

I'm not sure because I never tried. I've used it with walnuts, almonds, cashews. Hope you like it.
