This little kitchen diddy gives me so much pleasure. I find cooking is very enjoyable with gadgets such as this. Next time i'm in Toronto i want to get another one.

The spices i have in here are what i use most: chili powder, garam masala, turmeric, zeera, black peppercorns, dhaniya and cinnamon sticks in the middle. Gotta love masala.

Salaams sis! I have one of these too and LOVE IT! It is truely a god-sent! 2 of my spice jars are different than yours though, i dont use the cinnamon sticks in mine. I can buy them local in 3 different sizes right down the street. If you want another one let me know...your only one state over and dh can ship to you. Im not sure exactly how much they are but its pretty cheap like 20 dollar i think...cant remember.

Ayalguita - you can easily find them in London! Go to one of the desi stores there and i bet you find one. If not, i can send you one. :-)

UmmZaid - it came with two lids, one easy to remove one that is a flat round piece of very hard plastic with a nob (similar to a pot lid but flat) and another that is metal and hard plastic tight fitting around it (airtight). I find the airtight one hard to get off but always have the other one on it.

oop...and wa alaikum salaam UmmZaid.

Lindsey - Salaams. I love mine too. So much better than grabbing jars of spices every time. Especially when it's basically the same spices i use every time. The only think that i would do different (and probably will soon) is having ground cumin in there too...probably instead of the cinammon sticks. That's awesome that you guys have them so readily! Let's see if i find one in Toronto (visiting in a few weeks). Thanks!
