Skeppshult Cast-Iron Spice Kryddkvarn "Crush" Grinder

This gorgeous cast-iron, handmade grinder from Swedish company Skeppshult is a new take on a classic we’ve carried for years. Its large teeth do a terrific job of breaking down dried herbs and are ideal for hard whole spices like cinnamon sticks, star anise or cardamom; the wide gaps between the teeth are also easier for containing the ingredients. Skeppshult's clever labyrinthine pattern does half the work for you, especially since the weighty cast iron breaks apart big pieces just by placing the twist top on the device. We also like the grinder’s gently radiused design and solid heft. One caveat: The grinder should only be used with dry ingredients; otherwise the “teeth” can develop surface oxidation.
