How to Choose an Electric Grinder for Spices in the UK

Key Points to Consider

  1. Select a Capacity of Around 70 G to Ensure It Won’t Be Overloaded
  2. Choose a Grinder With a Min. Power of 150 W
  3. Ensure the Grinder Is Suitable for Your Ingredients

1. Select a Capacity Around 70 Grams to Ensure You Won’t Overload the Grinder and Your Spices Stay Fresh

1. Select a Capacity Around 70 Grams to Ensure You Won’t Overload the Grinder and Your Spices Stay Fresh

The first thing you need to think about when shopping for a spice grinder is the capacity. If it's too small, there's a chance you might overload it, resulting in an uneven grind. Your spices also won't end up the same size, which can cause issues during cooking. Too large, and you'll be left with a surplus amount that won't stay that fresh.


Getting the right size will make sure you preserve the quality and freshness of the spices, ensuring they stay flavourful and aromatic for a longer time. We recommend going for something in the middle, with a capacity of around 70 g.


Keep your seasonings on-hand and organized with a fillable spice rack.

2. Choose a Grinder With a Minimum Power of 150W, Although the Higher the Wattage the Better

2. Choose a Grinder With a Minimum Power of 150W, Although the Higher the Wattage the Better

The next thing you need to consider is the wattage. The level of wattage essentially tells you how effective the grinder's abilities are to handle tough ingredients. It also signifies the speed at which it grinds as well as how much it can handle.


The minimum you should look for is 150 W, however, the higher the wattage is, the better it can do its job. Our top 10 list includes products with between 150 W and 250 W, but bear in mind that a higher wattage usually means a higher price.

3. Make Sure the Grinder Is Suitable for the Ingredients You Intend to Use With It

3. Make Sure the Grinder Is Suitable for the Ingredients You Intend to Use With It

Lastly, you need to make sure the grinder can handle the types of ingredients you plan on using with it. For example, not all grinders have enough power to be able to turn tough cinnamon sticks and star anise pods into powder, so you'll definitely need to check this if you cook with these spices often.


Some grinders also have the capabilities to grind down coffee beans, seeds, nuts, onions and garlic, and even wet ingredients for making chutneys, jams and sauces. Others, meanwhile, are only really suitable for dried herbs and softer spices. So, make sure you pick one that suits your needs.


Consider a pestle and mortar for authentic pesto and curry pastes.
