For cooking enthusiasts who like to really get involved with their food artistry, it’s time to swap your electric spice grinder for the curvaceous  Paprikum Spice Grinder that’s supposed to perfectly pulverize seasonings. It definitely puts a unique take on traditional mortar and pestle methods. All the magic happens inside the container that features a polished metal ball bearing that can turn any dried spice into a powder in no time. It then comes apart in the middle via a simple twist, making loading it with spices and cleaning it fairly easy. The small opening on the top also has it doubling as a spice shaker so you can easily keep it out for dinner parties for all to admire its elegant exterior. The Paprikum grinds any dried spices like, paprika, chili, black pepper, cumin and more by shaking it up and down. The more you shake it the finer the dried spice will be.
