I love how well this Hamilton Beach Professional Juicer Mixer Grinder works to grinds a variety of ingredients depending on how we want it; coarse, smooth or fine. Prior to using this machine I have been having a hard time grinding pulses and rice finely for meals such as dosa and hoppers. With this machine making the batter smooth and getting the perfect consistency it needs to be is easy!
