Coffee Grinder as Food processor?

Do you think that you can use a coffee grinder as a mini food processor. Of course using a coffee grinder for coffee might retain its scent, but do you think it would work if i could use one strictly for non-coffee use. I have a spare coffee grinder from Christmas and was wondering if it would work.

If there is an old topic on this please refer me to it and delete this one. Thanks in advance : )

im curious instead of melting the kulfi inside the warm water for easy take out COULD you line the inside of the container with wax paper? and then just pull the wax paper? or will it result badly? also is the kulfi container or popsicle mold just for effect? could you use a basic rice bowl or a souffle cup? no offense the form of the kulfi looks magnificent in the picture but isnt it a hassle to eat?

Cornmeal Fried Catfish with RĂ©moulade

just curious COULD you use any other flour or frying component like panko or all purpose or the best result WOULD be cakeflour

Watermelon Juice with Fleur de Sel

just curious i tried this to some extent but not with the expensive fleur de sel but with just table salt ya im cheap but :P not the point...Isnt there a pulpy "top" on the drink or a foamyness is there a way to get rid of that by adding another ingredient or its a by product of beating air into it. Or do we just strain it to get a more clear fluid or thats just a personal choice because the foamy build up i get doesnt look to appetizing and im sure its not a blender or a watermelon problem
