If you like to be as physically involved with your cooking as possible, swap your electric spice grinder for this beautiful alternative that puts a unique spin—or shake—on the traditional mortar and pestle. Inside the Paprikum is a polished metal ball bearing that can turn any dried spice into a powder in no time.

The grinder comes apart at its mid-section with a simple twist, so loading up spices and cleaning it look pretty easy. And thanks to a small opening found on the top, Péter Toronyi's lovely design even doubles as a spice shaker. Pricing details aren't readily available, but you can apparently contact Péter via his site if you'd like to order one to spice up your own seasonings.
