It says to make sure the herbs are very dry but that is hard to do if kept in the refrigerator. I did not get a good result when trying basil and was disappointed. Wish it went all the way around and not just half way.
This grinder was a complete waste of money. I saw it for $5, so I took a chance. Bad idea! The blades are very dull and do not chop or cut at all. The herbs get stuck in it and clump up. It simply does not work. I wouldn't even give this thing away. I will be trashing it. :(
I bought this and was looking forward to using it for my fresh basil. Unfortunately, I did not realize the herbs should be dry. I could not get the basil to grind as I thought it would and the device ended up with caked in fresh basil I needed to use a knife to clean.
Very disappointing :(
