All right, be cranky

January 16, 2008|Noelle Carter

Here's a a classic that will take you back. You might remember chopping nuts for baking using a hand-cranked nut mill (which in the '70s was probably avocado green). The nuts go in the top compartment, you give the crank a few twirls, and voila! You won't get uniformly chopped nuts like this by beating them in a bag with a rolling pin.

This retro nut mill was spotted in the baking section of Jons Marketplace in Hollywood. The hourglass-shaped mill consists of a white, plastic, snap-top bin with a stainless steel grinder and a top that screws onto a glass basin to collect the chopped nuts. Straightforward and efficient. And the color is an improvement on avocado green.

Nut mill: $4.49 at select Jons Marketplace stores and online at Thekitchenstore.com ($4 and Amazon.com ($4.36)
