In a nutshell: The Skeppshult Swing Kryddkvarn is definitely the best, and most perfect, spice grinder we've found to date with clever storage area for freshly ground spices.
It's taken me a lifetime of collecting mortar and pestle sets and spice grinders from around the world to find the perfect one and the Swing Kryddkvarn is definitely it! Created by Berlin-based design duo Carl & Carl but made in Sweden by Skeppshult who specialise in cast-iron cookware, it typifies all that we've come to expect from clever and stylish Scandinavian design.
Trust me, this is one piece of kitchen kit that will become indispensable! It's compact size also makes it ideal for small kitchen worktops. Use it to grind peppercorns, allspice berries, coriander seeds and spice mixes from Épices de Cru or herbs from Daphnis and Chloe as you need them for your cooking. The lid pulls off to reveal a clever storage area for your freshly ground spices.

Skeppshult was founded in 1906 by C.E. Andersson. Known for their robust, high quality cast-iron products. Each item is made by hand, pouring molten iron into special moulds that use very fine sand from Lake Vättern close to their factory in Sweden. The sand has been compressed under several tons of pressure making it capable of withstanding the extremely high temperature of the hot cast-iron as it's poured into their induction furnaces. Once cooled, the mould is separated and the product is left to cool before further work is carried out honing and finessing their shape. Then, they are seasoned with local rapeeseed from Osterlen which both protects the cast-iron from external damage and helps to give it it's natural non-stick property. The pure cast-iron ensures effective heat distribution and efficient energy usage, making all Skeppshult products some of the most eco-friendly cookware to use in your kitchen.
Do not wash in the dishwasher, simply clean by hand with a brush and wipe dry with kitchen paper and occasionally rub lightly with a little rapeseed or vegetable oil.
Every item made by Skeppshult has a 25 year guarantee.
