I found a recipe I'd like to try that calls for chickpea flour. There's chick peas themselves in the recipe as well...I don't have any of the flour and was wondering if there was a substitute I could use that would be somewhat similar? I just hate to get a whole bag and only use a small amount

It should be baking soda not baking powder as I said, sorry.
Keep running it through, but the plastic may have really picked up the oils over time. I clean mine soon after using spices.
On a personal note pauljoseph how are you doing with the fast?

It might depend on your grinder. Mine has steel blades and it works great. Even after grinding Indian spices it's still good to use for coffee and keeps me from buying another grinder just for spices.
Try it with your model and see if it removes the 'coffee smell'..if so..it's good to use for spices and coffee with the cleaning.
lightly roast the dried peas for a few mins in the oven. Put in the grinder and grind into flour..in very small batches. You could also use lentils if have those dried.
To clean the coffee grinder..rinse it dry it..put in some raw rice and some baking powder and grind to a paste. Repeat until the smell is normal.
