The Kitchen Gadget You Didn’t Know You Needed: William Bounds Nutmeg Mill

February 10, 2012 | By | Comments (2)

I love nutmeg’s spicy aroma and the depth it gives to everything from cakes to smoothies.  Maybe I’m lazy but sometimes it seems like too much work to unscrew the jar, fish out the nutmeg ball, and unearth my microplane from my overstuffed utensil drawer. And that’s even before grating it.

Now all of this is in the past with my new favorite kitchen gadget: a nutmeg mill.  This tool is only 2-inches tall and 3-inches wide and will easily fit in your kitchen cabinet.  The top section stores up to 6 reserve nutmegs, which will last you quite some time.

As you turn the handle a sharp blade grinds one nutmeg in the bottom portion into a fine dust for your coffee, cakes, and more.  I can’t wait to dust everything I eat with only a quick turn of the handle.  Available for purchase at William Bounds Ltd here.
