Revel Wet and Dry Grinder
Posted 12 July 2011 - 11:13 AM
However, after not many weeks of usage the motor went. Since we had carefully followed usage guidelines (length of time spent grinding, resting period, etc.) we took it back to the shop and they were kind enough to give us a replacement. Sadly, that one broke after not too long as well.
Looking at reviews on amazon, it seems this is a major flaw with the machine. I wish we had looked on amazon before buying! It's such a shame because when it works it does the job very well. Has anyone here actually had a good experience with this grinder or do they all pretty much end up burning out? I know that in our house we were using it daily, but some posters on amazon say it broke the first time!
In the past we have always just used a normal coffee grinder which we set aside for grinding spices. So this £30 machine was a bit of a "treat" for us. I have an ultra pride for big wet pastes, and also an immersion blender which I do sneakily use for wet grinding smallish quantities (even though it doesn't work that well).
I'm moving to India in like, 2 days, so I am probably just going to get myself a Preethi or a Sumeet or some other mixie and I'll be happy with that. But I want to recommend a replacement small wet-grinder for my Mum and Dad in the UK (they will be keeping the ultra pride as it is too heavy for me to take with me, so the grinding capacity only needs to be small). Anyone have any tips? Note: We tried the John Lewis Revel-look-alike and it is rubbish, so not that one!

You didn't find that attempting to grind anything wet would cause liquid to dangerously spill out down towards the motor, or that it would give occasional electric shocks? Count yourself lucky It's obviously in a different price bracket but Bamix do two small grinding attachments for their blenders, one specifically for wet and dry.
I would second that recommendation. I own a
Update: wattage correction

I have to say I'm feeling jealous.

No, that is not a problem with this grinder, it is specifically designed for wet and dry. Food processors manage fine, so why wouldn't this?
No, I mean my Revel - the very same model - had those problems. Guess I got a particularly duff one. Or at least a different kind of duff.
