No, electric is good. I just exclude a blender because I've already tried it and found I must add lots of water to get stuff finely ground. I damaged my blender grinding thick stuff while I was at it too.....
Will a food processor provide more torque, then? This is like a fairly thick paste, it only just flows. I think the blender could do it given enough time and torque. The connection arrangement on the bottom started getting stripped, though. Like a bolt head getting striped by a wrench, but the wrench getting "stripped" as well.
Huh. Maybe I can shove paper clip bits in there or something. Or braze it on, if the would make the socket square in the first place it wouldn't be a problem.
