Is Potassium Nitrate...flammable?

I have some large granules of stump remover that I'm making PMDD with. Can I place these in my coffee grinder? I don't want to burn down my kitchen or anything.


TIA

Just put them in a cloth and give them a whack with a hammer if you are worried.

I wouldn't use your coffee grinder, unless you plan not to use your coffee grinder for grinding coffee beans anymore. Also, do note that potassium nitrate is an oxidizer, and is technically not flammable. However, while it is not necessarily combustible, it may cause, or contribute to, the combustion of other materials.

Just make a liquid solution, plop them in water. No chop needed.
