Spice and Nut Grinder
Food for Thought:
Consumers Focus on Heightened Flavors, User-friendly Food Prep Tools
America's passion for rich flavors, authentic ingredients and artisanal food is a driving force behind consumers' purchasing decisions for culinary products. Home cooks are continuing to integrate a growing number of fresh herbs and spices into their recipes, which calls for a food prep tool that allows them to grind ingredients so as to extract the most flavor and aroma.

What to Look for When Purchasing a Spice and Nut Grinder:

The Cuisinart Spice and Nut Grinder (model no. SG-10) makes it easier than ever for consumers to grind any spice or create original, tantalizing spice blends. Consumers can use the new Cuisinart product to grind everything from black peppercorns and nutmeg to whole cinnamon sticks and a variety of nuts. Simply fill the stainless steel bowl with the desired spices or nuts, place the lid on the grinder base and press down on the one-touch lid to start the process. A built-in safety interlock prevents operation unless the lid is securely in place. The lid is also designed to seal in all the finely ground spices and ensure the flavor is preserved.
To help consumers get maximum use out of their Spice and Nut Grinder, the unit comes with a recipe book with inspiring creations for virtually any palette. Consumers can grind nuts and spices to prepare a variety of dishes, from pistachio crusted rack of lamb to spiced pecan pie crust.
Cuisinart's grinder bowl holds up to 3.2 ounces of spices or nuts. The maximum capacity for spices and nuts is one-half cup each. For added convenience, the storage lid is designed to store extra spices in the grinding bowl until they are needed for a second recipe.
The Spice and Nut Grinder is convenient to use as well as to maintain. The storage lid is dishwasher safe and the stainless steel bowl is removable for easy cleaning.

Cuisinart's Spice and Nut Grinder features a heavy-duty motor and stainless steel blades that are exclusively designed to grind spices and nuts, In addition, the unit has non-slip rubber feet for extra stability on the countertop or work area.
