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

Question
Will it grind cinnamon sticks?
I need something strong and powerful enough to grind very hard cinnamon sticks. My old coffee grinder did a good job but recently died (probably because I was grinding cinnamon in it). Can you confirm that as a 'spice grinder' this unit has a build quality that can handle cinnamon sticks? Thank you

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into this with the manufacturer, I can confirm that you can chop nuts with the spice grinder but not with the concentrated spice grinder chamber.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Good observation, but grinds a tonne of coffee at a time, so worth a struggle.

Actually its very light and easy to use

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.
