Grizzly Grinder - Large 4 Piece Herb & Spice Grinder Review

Recently I decided to clean out my spice and herb rack. I had a lot of Whole Cloves, a ton of Dried Ginger Pieces, Sesame Seeds, Oregano and Lemon Grass Pieces. My husband makes fun of me for getting too much of this, and that. The bag of Sesame Seeds were from him.

I got out my new Grizzly Grinder. It's a large 4 piece herb and spice grinder. They say it's large, but it really doesn't take up a lot of room in the cupboard. It has 4 pieces that fit together.


All the pieces screw on together to store nicely. It's 2.5 inches wide, which makes it a great size for traveling. It can easily fit in a pocket or purse.

 
About the Grizzly Grinder:
  • 50 powerful diamond shaped teeth and 25 filtering holes for flawless grinding.
  • 4- piece grinder with stainless steel mesh screen that does an amazing job at filtering pollen.
  • Free pollen scrapper tool included for easy pollen collection.
  • Easy to clean with a drop of soap and warm water. Hand wash and air dry is recommended.
  • Made from premium quality zinc alloy material.   
  • It's on great sale. Usually it's $49.95, but right now it's $21.95. That's a great deal since the competitor products are $50 and up.
Since fall is right around the corner I made Pumpkin Pie Spice and Allspice with the plethora of Cloves and Ginger. I was out Pumpkin Pie Spice and Allspice. During this time of year I use a lot of them. The spices ground down really well using the Grizzly Grinder.

Pumpkin Pie Spice:

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Allspice:

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

I'll leave the Sesame Seeds as is. I'll make Protein Bites with them. 

I ground down some Oregano. We grow our own Oregano, so we always have a lot of that! You can see how well the Grizzly Grinder ground up the Oregano. Here's before and after pictures. Keep in mind that I had already ground up the Oregano with a food processor. The food processor was a great start, but didn't do the job that the Grizzly Grinder did!

Before and After:


I ground the Lemon Grass down to. I'm new to the Lemon Grass world. I really haven't used it. Any ideas as to what to use it for? I'm open to suggestions. So far I ground up about a Tablespoon and a 1/2 to put in Popsicles. Summer isn't over with yet. 

Popsicles:

2 Nectarines
1 - 8 once glass of Dandelion Root Tea
1 and 1/2 Tablespoon of ground Lemon Grass
1 Tablespoon of Honey

Add all the ingredients to the blender, and pour them into Popsicle molds.



The Grizzly Grinder did get the Lemon Grass ground down finer. That stuff is a tough grass, so it's harder to grind down super fine. 

Before and After:




So far I'm really impressed with the Grizzly Grinder! I'm Considering this the last grinder I will ever buy! Do you have a Herb and Spice Grinder?

I make my own pumpkin pie spice also. So much cheaper than buying it mixed all ready

I do not have a grinder currently, but I can see how it would totally come in handy.
