Spice grinders are small kitchen tools used to turn whole spices into powders. There are some kinds of spice grinders that can be used to chop fresh herbs as well, these are referred to as ‘wet and dry spice grinders’.
Spice grinders are a great tool to have in your kitchen because they allow you to buy whole spices instead of buying them pre-ground. Freshly ground spices have a more intense flavour
There are many types of spice grinders available, manual ones like the pestle and mortar are great but it takes a lot of effort to get a finished product. Nowadays electric ones have become popular.
