View Full Version : What is the best grinder to use for sunflower seeds?

I don't want to use my blender. I feel its too big for something small like this.
I just want something small and easy.
When I have something small like this to grind - I use my husband's old coffee bean grinder. It works great. *Ü*

It even grinds Flax Seeds!!!!
What I like to do is grind a small handful & keep it in an air tight baggie, ready to use in a jiffy!

I did use the vitamix to grind seeds but changed to the coffee grinder and will not be changing back.

A grinder is an unnecessary extra gadget. Just use either a small mini chopper or a food processor. This way you have an item that can be used for many things other than grinding. I have a Black & Decker mini chopper that is usually $14-20 and can be used to chop fruits, veggies, nuts/seeds, make ice cream, etc.

Magic Bullet or Tribest personal blender. Use the flat blade for grinding. Grind it too long and you've got butter.

hmm. mini chopper and FP dont seem to be able to do that double-duty. Dont seem to be able to grind flax or sesame...i find i really need the coffee grinder to do that.

I have a VM, but tend to use the magic bullet for little jobs. Works amazingly well, especially for the price. Big job - VitaMix for sure!
