I think the product guidelines say 20s maximum. I don't exceed that.

Question
What's the grinder capacity in mls?
I use my current grinder to grind cashews then add water (1 - 2 cups full) and blend to make a 'cream' for desserts etc.
From a point of view of both capacity and adding liquid can I do that in this grinder or would I need to transfer the ground nuts to a blender? (The other product I'm considering is the James Martin ZX808X Table Blender which has a grinder / mill and a jug.)
thanks

Thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I have been in contact with the manufacturer and after speaking with a technical advisor she confirmed that it would not be advisable to add liquid to the James Martin ZX809X Spice and Coffee Grinder.

Thank you for using Argos Q & A.

Hello, thank you for your question.

I have checked and this product will grind approximately 45 grams of coffee. The amount of coffee required for a cup varies according to taste between 6 and 10 grams so this machine will make enough coffee for between 4 and 7 cups.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

If you mean do the contents remain in situ during operation then yes. It only takes seconds to complete its process and you need to pulse it for only a couple of seconds at a time. Hope this helps

Hi,

The James Martin ZX809X Spice and Coffee Grinder can be used to grind white rice, this should be done without the small quantity attachment, and the bowl should not be overfilled.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Answer(s)
it is for very small amounts to grind when needed so coffee nuts etc will be freshly ground for better flavour and smell.
