Default Pill crusher or Pill grinder.

A few months ago we discussed pill crushers for those of us who are using a feed tube, I was using a certain brand but then Patrick123 said he was using a small Epica coffee bean grinder that worked well for him. As my pill crusher was not doing the job any more I decided to take Patrick's advice and order the Epica coffee bean grinder on line. This is a far better unit then what I had. The coffee bean grinder, grinds my dozen pills to a fine powder two times a day, I'am completely satisfied with this purchase and I would recommend it to anyone that needs pills ground to a powder. Thank you Patrick...

Hi firefighter,
Good to hear your grinder is working well for you. I've been using it for 4 years.

Thank you for sharing, order one for my wife yesterday. She has been struggling with taking pills with apple sauce and would probably soon tire of taking them. Now that she has a PEG, I hope the grinder will be a big benefit.
