A handy Swedish grinder from IKEA

We are reviewing this handy masala grinder as we make a delicious chaat. Watch the full episode to find out if it’s a good fit for your kitchen or not

Nothing excites me more than new, shiny kitchen tools. To just rip-open the packaging and figure out how the item works. It took me a few attempts to figure this one out though. Especially, how to make the grinder go from fine powder to coarse powder…but for that and my verdict on this tool you can watch the full episode!

This was my first experience with IKEA’s kitchen tools. I used this Swedish grinder to make something supremely Indian: my homely chaat masala that needs frequent replenishment. We attempted a tulsi-cinnamon fruit salad sprinkled with tons of homemade spice mix and it was ideal because the grinder lets you make mixes in small batches that a blender won’t permit.


It’s compact, which makes it easy to store on your kitchen shelves, taking up as little space as possible compared to a mixer-grinder. For me, the most useful feature of the tool is the grinding mechanism, a ceramic fixture to ensure even and finely ground spices.

Look out for my honest reviews in the first episode of ‘The Kitchen Toolkit by Beautiful Homes’. Maybe my hands-on experience will get you to think about swapping your big grinder with this new sleek kitchen pal.
