Disposable or Rechargeable Batteries? What Power Source Is Right for Your Spice Grinder?

FinaMill designs an electric spice grinder that is an amazing addition to any kitchen. The grinder uses refillable pods that are filled with your favorite spices and herbs. With the push of a button, the spices are ground up and ready to use in your favorite pasta, salad, or soup. This grinder will save you time and make your meals taste better by allowing chefs to use the freshest of spices. When it comes to how the grinder operates, users have a couple options. The grinder uses AA batteries. The batteries can either be disposable or rechargeable. There are pros and cons to each type of battery. Read on to learn about about FinaMill grinders and which type of battery you should use.

How Does a FinaMill Grinder Work?

FinaMill is an electric spice grinder that uses refillable, interchangeable pods. Put your favorite, pre-ground spice into the pod, push the button, and your spice will be all ground up in no time! FinaMill allows you to buy the exact amount of spice you need so that you aren’t wasting money buying an entire bottle for just one recipe. The pods are easily interchangeable. Quickly switch from a salt pod to a pepper pod while preparing your favorite pasta dish. This helps reduce cross-contamination issues. You will be amazed at how flavorful your meals will become by using these fresh, pre-ground spices.

The grinder can easily be adjusted to grind finely, coarsely, or somewhere in between. Choose based on your recipe or your personal preference. In addition, switching between pods and dispensing the spice is so easy; it only takes one hand. This frees up the other hand to continue stirring, sautéing, or flipping! The grinder has a sleek, modern design that will look great sitting out in any kitchen. In addition, the grinder is compact, meaning it won’t take up much counter space. The grinder comes in white, red, and gray. There is the option to buy the grinder with one pod included or the grinder with two pods included. Additional pods are sold separately in packs of two for $11.95. These pods are easy to store, operate, and clean between uses. Another important thing to know about the grinder is that batteries are not included. This means you need to decide whether you want to invest in disposable or rechargeable batteries for your grinder. Read on to learn more. 

Disposable or Rechargeable Batteries?

The FinaMill grinders take AA batteries. It is up to the user whether they want to use disposable batteries or ones that can be recharged. When deciding which one to use, keep in mind that there are pros and cons to each. For example, a disposable battery will last a lot longer than a rechargeable battery will before needing a charge. That being said, you will end up saving money in the long run with rechargeable batteries because you won’t always need to buy new ones. If you are someone who easily forgets to recharge electronics, disposable batteries might be better. Nothing is worse than picking up your grinder to begin cooking and realizing the batteries need to be charged. On an environmentally friendly note, rechargeable batteries are much better for the environment as they are, in a way, being “recycled” and not thrown into landfills. Rechargeable batteries are a bit more expensive than disposable batteries, but remember, they are an investment. Once you have them, you won’t need to run out and buy more all the time. Both types of batteries can be bought at your local electronic store or ordered online.

Which Battery Should I Choose?

If you are someone who is bad about charging devices, go with the disposable batteries for your grinder. They will last 2 times longer than a rechargeable battery would before needing a charge. Also, if you are someone who brings your grinder with you on the go, disposable batteries will be easier. For example, if you bring your grinder with you on a camping trip, it may be hard to find a place to recharge so disposable batteries would be the best solution.

If you do have access to a plug and are good about remembering to recharge, rechargeable batteries are a better option. When a disposable battery dies, you have to make sure you have extra batteries on hand to replace them. Often this leads to homeowners having to run to the store to purchase batteries right as they are ready to start dinner. With rechargeable batteries, you never have to worry about this happening. In the long run, rechargeable batteries will also save you time and money as you don’t have to worry about buying replacement batteries for when they die. Simply plug in, recharge, and you are ready to go. In addition, rechargeable batteries are better for the environment as they produce less waste.

Tired of grinding by hand? Wishing you could buy all your spices in pre-ground form? With the FinaMill electric spice grinder, you can now do both of these things! This grinder is battery operated and grinds spices that are attached in a small pod. With the touch of a button your spices are ground and ready to put into your favorite dish. When it comes to choosing which type of batteries to use, the first step is knowing that the grinder takes AA batteries. Next, the user must decide whether they want to use rechargeable or disposable batteries. As mentioned above, both have pros and cons and it really depends on how the user feels and where they will be using their grinder.
