FinaMill FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
FinaMill uses three AA battery batteries.
For the motor to engage and run, a FinaPod must be properly inserted.
No, it is operated with batteries. We are working on a USB rechargeable model, please visit finamill. com and sign up for our newsletter to be notified of its launch.
In 4Q 2021 we will introduce two new FinaPods. FinaPod MAX which will grind allspice, cloves and even coffee and espresso beans. And the FinaPod GT will be perfect for hard spices like nutmeg and cinnamon and even hard cheeses like parmesan cheese.
Along the sides of the pod are two holes cut into the base. Insert a key, or ridged object then twist open. The hole plus object will give you more leverage to open the base.
It is fairly small, but not a powder like pre-ground spice. Please adjust the grinding knob to your desired coarseness.
You might have to adjust the grinding adjuster knob to a finer setting.
Remove the pod from the mill and twist the adjuster knob. If there is spice stuck in the grinder, run it for a few seconds upside down to clear the spice out.
Pepper or other spice might be stuck in the grinding element. The simple fix is to hold the FinaMill with the pod inserted upside down and run it for a few seconds. That should clear material from the grinding element and allow it to be adjust again.
The FinaPod pro can do everything the FinaPod express can do (the white base pod), but it can also grind seeds, or things with high oil content like lemon pepper, much more effectively.
No, only chopped or minced dried herbs.
The current model cannot grind these spices because they are too hard. We are working on a more powerful model, please follow us for the updates.
High humidity or static can cause them to stick. Be sure to keep the grinding element and area clean to minimize sticking.
