James Martin ZX789 by Wahl Spice Grinder – / : The small spice compartment attachment should only be used to fine grind just a teaspoon of spice

Folow the instructions if you want it to live. Believe them when they say only use it for thirty secondsi thought they meant maximum of thirty-second bursts. The small-quantity/fine-grind attachment works really well. It will *powder* half a teaspoon of mustard seeds or a few peppercorns. My wife had some coarse-ground stuff she wanted to be fine-ground, and i said this would do it. Without warning, it must have overheated. It did not stop, but now only runs at a slow speed: too slow to grind. I can’t take it back, because i am 5,000 miles from where it was bought (not amazon). It lasted me a couple of months.

Does the job as good as any expensive grinder. The inclusion of the cover to grind small quantities is a bonus.

  • Transparent lid allows you to easily monitor grinding to ensure your desired result is achieved
  • Dishwasher safe removable grinding bowl and spice attachment for easy cleaning plus handy, space saving cord storage feature

The best spice grinder around for the price.

Definite improvement over the previous model. I have the older version and this is a much better design. Only used for coffee beans but does the job in seconds.

I highly recommend this product. Reliable product, i bought it for my mum almost a year and half ago and she loves it. There is no change in its quality and funcionality after this time. I highly recommend this product.

The small spice compartment attachment should only be used to fine grind just a teaspoon of spice. Bought this to replace the same unit we have had for a couple of years which burned out due to me overloading the small spice compartment. Take note that this product is very sensitive to overloading the small spice compartment and they do provide a lot of warnings in the packaging to this effect. The small spice compartment attachment should only be used to fine grind just a teaspoon of spice. Prosgrinds sppices very well. Small spice compartment is great for fine grinding small amounts of spice (see caveat above)spice grinder and small spice compartment are easily detachable and dishwasher safe. Power cable rolls into the base of the unit which opens and closes to accomodate it which is great for storage as little or no cable to tangle up. Conshave to be careful not to overload small spice compartment otherwise unit burns out having to be replaced. Some moisture can be trapped under the plastic casing of the spice grinder which can be a pain to dry out / remove (doesn’t affect the grinder though).

I spent ages trying to find the right spice grinder. Previously had a delonghi coffee grinder but i didn’t like the fact that you couldn’t wash it out. . This was one of my key criteria. I do not use it for coffee but grind a lot of different spices. I’ve had this product for a month and it has performed really well. I like the fact that you can take out the bowl and blade and shove it in the dishwasher. It has a neat insert which allows you to grind small quantities. I also find it useful if i want a really fine powder. If you leave the insert off then you generally get a rougher grind.

Great machine, just as requested.

Ok initially but then cracked. This was a bit cumbersome because of the two sections fitting together but worked fine. Eventually some of it cracked which then weakened the whole thing leading to more bits falling off so now buying another one. Lasted two years with monthly use.

Update – replacement is a load of junk. My old one wore out, so i bought this replacement. It worked for a few days, then broke down. Other people have reported the problem – the cheap plastic drive wears down, leaving bits of black plastic in the base of the grinder. Can’t see any way to contact amazon. Just bought another model from amazoni have bought hundreds of items from them, and this is the first time i’ve ever been ddisappointed in any way.

I just bought it and test it with a small amount of dry coriander seeds which turned into powder in seconds.

Item arrived much quicker than anticipated – great quality too.

Excellent value for money,have tried both with and without the attachment.

I looked all through the small spice grinders and finally picked this one and i couldn’t be happier with my decision. Excellent small grinder which does exactly what it is made for. The only small complaint is the short lead but any longer would have meant it couldn’t be easily stored in the base. I’ve used it for different seeds and spices and its easy to clean so you dont get any mixed flavours.

Brilliant and small quantity adaptor very useful-does its job very well.

Grinds spices and makes pastes – excellent. . My wife bought me this spice grinder for my birthday after i dropped a few heavy hints about it. I’m a keen cook and i specialise in mexican and american bbq cooking, both of which benefit greatly from freshly ground spices, especially dried chillies, cumin, coriander seeds, etc. And also make use of pastes, usually with garlic and/or onion added to herbs and spices. This spice grinder handles them all well, although you need to cut down larger pieces of garlic or onion before grinding them. One of the first things i made was some chipotle chile powder, using jalapenos i had smoke dried myself, whole cumin seeds and a little salt. I tore the dried chile into strips and popped it into the grinder along with the cumin seeds and salt. Then, as it was a relatively small amount of material to grind, i popped on the supplied adaptor, that basically holds smaller batches close to the grinding blades, then the outside top. When the adaptor is in place you can’t see what you’re grinding but your ears will tell you when it’s done – the initial crackling rattle as the larger bits whizz around in the grinder is replaced by a quieter whoosh sound and you know everything has been broken down. The chipotle chile powder was excellent.

    Present for my dad, he uses is regularly for grinding spices and he said it works perfectly. The small compartment is a really good idea.

    Says easy to take apart for cleaning i have never been able to get it apart, lucky i only use it for coffee beans else i would have had major problems. That said it has lasted well but the nut that holds the blade on has now broken so myust look for a replacement after several years of twice a week use.
