There are quite a few here Bren, some under £20.00. Let us know what you eventually get, won't you?
I'll try that again!
I use a coffee grinder that we were given as a present a few years ago. We rarely grind coffee, so it was just sitting there notbeing used. Of course ever since I first used it for spices it's been completely unsuitable for coffee 🙂
We had an electric spice grinder, but to be quite honest you can't beat the good old pestle and mortar. The one we found to be the best is a stonkingly big cast iron one - the surface is 'grainy', which makes for a really coarse grinding surface and does the job in no time. Our electric one blew up after a year, and of course was made of crappy plastic. Grind away!
Welcome Mark. Often wonder at times how labour saving are some gadgets, especially after the washer upper (which isn't me) has cleaned the thing. I think on a big scale electric gadgets are useful but for small amounts usually not worth getting out.
We were thinking of getting a coffee grinder/spice grinder. Years ago I used to make my own mustard, and I'd grind the seeds using a coffee grinder. I was wondering whether a grinder would be able to make a useable flour from corn or pulses, such as cornmeal or gram flour? Has anyone tried doing this or would it end up too coarse?

I use a flour mill on a kitchen aid and even that is courser than ordinary flour but acceptable. Not bad when you cannot get wholemeal flour for love nor money
