I grind rice all the time. I don't even know what kind of grinder it is, walmart had it for 7.99. To grind 2kg it takes a while tho.. heh.

you can use anything that will grind (blender, coffee grinder, ect), though it smells like shit.

Coffee grinder is okay.Just put a half 1/2 a cup of rice at a time that way it want put to much strain on your grinder.When it starts getting hot after the 2nd or 3rd grind using a 1/2 cup stop for a while to let it cool down.I used mine for 3 years and no problem.It will get hot and not work anymore if you over do it though.

I burned up a coffee grinder pretty fast. My Osterizer works great.

Blenders works great if you only add a few cups of rice at a time. It goes quick and doesn't damage the blender.

When I used to grind rice I would just use the grinder in the coffee isle of the store I was buying the rice in.

...it says not to grind rice in it.


It actually says that?!
Next we'll see warnings on mason jars telling us not to grow mushrooms in em!

Seriously, I've ground up a bunch of rice in my generic coffee grinder and it's no worse for the wear. Think about it... coffee, rice... they're about the same. It's not like you're trying to grind up gravel in it.

I've used a Black and Decker coffee grinder to grind rice for years...

I first tried a Mr Coffee and two of those burned out really quick. The Black and Decker lasts... Just can't let the motor overheat... Need to take a little time between grinding, or after a few loads full.





A great alternative to using one of those, is to use something called a flour mill. I have a Universal 500 Grain Mill that tears through rice real quick. ;)

my coffee grinder works great for rice

best advice i can give you (other than trying to grind too much at once) is to shake the grinder while grinding

GE coffee grinder - Walmart $20
Works just fine. 1 cup at a time.
I wouldn't do more than 2 lbs of rice in one session cause it gets rather hot.


I want one of these:

i'll tell you the best grinder i've ever had.
i've burned up many
but i bought this one almost 2 years ago
right before i started www.mycrotopia.com
and it was on sale for ten bucks,
marked down from 40.
but it's literally ground up several hundred pounds of rice
never gets hot and never quits.

I just buy organic brown rice flour. Not as fresh, of course, but my local health food store seems to go through its stock fairly quickly (!) so it's not very old. I guess I trade the freshness for the convenience. Always has worked great for me...
