- Grind is not fine.
- Turning knob is small
The grind is not that fine which is ok in pies and cooked recipes. For coffee or eggnog, you should find something with a finer grind. Grinds standard sized nutmeg. Larger ones don't fit. Not a real issue. If you need teaspoons of fresh ground nutmeg for pies, the handle is small, and useful for a few turns for drinks, but for volume you want a more substantial knob. I wouldn't recommend this grinder for this use.
NOTE: This tool is for small amounts, it you need a more than a teaspoon, get a dedicated spice grinder (a standard coffee grinder, get in a different color and label it Spices Only), and then you can grind up to 1/2 cup in seconds.
Comes packed with the actual nuts pictured, and the fit is pretty tight with 5-6 of them in there. Replacement nuts from a local source might not fit "exactly" inside the acrylic cover, just fyi.
The grind is between fine and medium, and is only slightly adjustable depending on how much you tighten the mechanism (too loose, though, and it won't grip the nut strongly enough to work). The mechanism is nearly identical to the copy-cat version by William (WM) Bounds (see nut grinder) which also sells here for about 40% less. That one is poorer mechanically (I own both), and produces much larger shavings.
Speaking of the mechanism, it isn't perfect, and sometimes a little creative positioning of the nut may be required to get it "seated" securely to the hooked shaft to get it going. Although I have to admit to getting that nostalgic, holiday feeling when turning the grinder, I've had even better, more consistent results using a micro-plane for nuts (the small, narrow version).
This version is chrome. There is also a wood based version, though not sure if Amazon still sells it.
