What can I grind with the Peanut Butter+ Accessory?

We’ve had the opportunity to test a few different nuts and beans and here are our findings thus far:

Almonds-roasted almonds tend to work better than raw almonds, though both can be ground. The paste comes out crumbly and moist and packs together when pinched.

Cashews– Because of their size, cashews need to be broken up so that they will feed into the auger. The cashews can easily be broken up with the pestle once they are in the hopper, which should only be partially filled.

Peanuts and macadamia nuts- These grind well.  It is not necessary to break up these nuts with a pestle prior to grinding.

Sunflower Seeds- These are not recommended for grinding. They are small and the auger forces too many through at a time, making grinding very difficult.

Walnuts and pecans- These grind well, but must be broken up prior to grinding so that they will feed into the auger well. They break up easily by using the pestle in a partially filled hopper.

Roasted coffee beans- Coarse grind goes through easily with no clogging. Medium to fine grind and espresso grinds are difficult to turn, unless beans are dribbled through a handful at a time while the mill is turned. In this case, the grinding is quite easy, and the production is still quite fast.

Cocoa beans- A coarse grind may be produced by dribbling beans through a handful at a time. They will need to be broken up prior to grinding. The outer grinding plate may need to be removed and cleaned periodically.  Anything finer than a coarse grind will clog.
