Coffee grinder

I just came from a rummage sale and was thrilled to find a brand new coffee grinder. I've been wanting one to use for spices. Do I have to worry about flavors staying in the grinder even after washing? Ones that will permiate (s/p ?) the next spices I grind?

I have never had a problem with the flavors mingling with whatever I use it for next.

A good way to clean it between uses is to take a small piece of bread and grind it up. That will pick up all the reminants of whatever you ground up last.

Will no. Now I just have to find a Juicer too! I love finding sales where the person receives kitchen items they never used.

The only thing I've ever heard re: grinders is to use one for spices & a separate one for coffee beans.

You should definitely use a separate grinder for your coffee. We had a fairly unpleasant coffee experience on morning after grinding peppers and mace. The next morning my brother, who was visiting, did not look closely and thought it was coffee and we had spicy coffee. Not an early morning favorite.
