Win a modern ratchet grinder – closed

It’s competition time!

I have a very useful kitchen gadget to give away; this is kindly offered by “Kuhn Rikon UK”: the Epicurean Ratchet Grinder worth £39.95.

This is a sturdy and efficient grinder with a sleek and modern look with the same high performance ratchet operating mechanism and high-performance ceramic grinding stone.

To operate it you simply fill it up and the glass centre lets you see what’s inside. To grind, just pull the ratchet handle back and forth – this is easy on the wrists. I like the fact that you can create your own dried spice blends!

•High performance ceramic grinding stone
•Adjustable for course or fine grinding
•Comfortable ratchet handle
•Just unscrew the top and fill it up
•You can use it in the kitchen or at the table

My husband proposed to me the day before her wedding, meaning I got to share my happy news with her too! And, of course, who wouldn’t love a trip to Rome even without all those extra memories we made?

  180. AnnaS

    Fort William.Wonderfull!

  181. Fiona jk42

    My husband & I spent 6 weeks backpacking in India almost 40 years ago. We arrived in Bombay, then went by steam train through Gujurat and Rajastan, stopping in wonderful places such as Udaipur, Jaipur & Agra, eventually arriving in Delhi. India was very underdeveloped and a lot of the places we stayed at were pretty basic, but we had a great time. We also went to Kashmir and stayed on a houseboat for a week, something that is now impossible because of the unrest in that area. India is still a very interesting country to visit but I’m glad we went when it was still unspoilt by modern development.

  182. Karen Scott

    Best holiday was Jamaica when I was much younger and could enjoy the red stripe lol
