Heavy duty grinder for cinnamon sticks
Referring to my quest at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8020...
I am looking to see if any grinder will make cinnamon sticks into a fine powder.
I evenually used my Vita-Mix for it, but surely there has to be another grinder that would grind spices (including cinnamon sticks) into a fine powder.
Also see AlkieGourmand's answer saying that softsticks (Ceylon) were used to get a ground powder in a regular Krups grinder.
Wondering if anyone uses another grinder for 'regular' (hard) cinnamon sticks.
When I need to grind cinnamon, cardomom and such, I use an electric coffee grinder but I then put it through a sieve to remove bits of husk and fiber that do not get pulverized. It adds an extra step but works fine for those infrequent occasions. Don't know if there's a more "thorough" grinder out there.
