    The problem you're going to have with that is volume. You'll only be able to do a small amount at a time. I'd suggest you search for another option. – GdD Jun 30 '15 at 9:43
  • you're right I will continu to look for another solution maybe a DIY mill. Thx – Christophe Debove Jul 1 '15 at 15:43

That's a nice picture of a spinning blade type spice grinder you have there. The good ones will even do whole nutmegs. You can also use it to make limited quantities of powdered sugar, oat flour, wheat flour, buckwheat flour etc. About any non-oily seed may be turned into a powder with that grinder. Trying to make peanut butter is a mistake. It goos up the blades something awful.

  • all sellers advised me that, but as they are seller I had to be sure :-) , I putted this picture to avoid linking to any marketplace. – Christophe Debove Jun 29 '15 at 15:14
  • so mill almond with that will be a bad Idea, don't you think? – Christophe Debove Jun 29 '15 at 15:15

    You can do nuts and the like if you're quick about it. Only pulse a few times and you'll get small pieces. More, and it turns to sticky paste. There may well be nuts that don't work well at all. – Wayfaring Stranger Jun 29 '15 at 15:20
  • ok thx, I will try it – Christophe Debove Jun 29 '15 at 15:21
