To get the best use out of spices the best object to grind them in is the good old mortar and pestle. Pre-ground spices lose their effectiveness over time, their essential oils evaporating away until they eventually become tasteless. Electric grinders produce heat which can also similarly reduce the effectiveness of the ground spice.
