So easy to fill! That’s huge, when compared to the gyrations needed to fill a traditional pepper mill. I love the option of grinding into the reciprocal or directly on to the food. I love the adjustable grind! I’m telling everyone I know about my purchase!
loved the ease of loading the spices and the grinding ability. i am still getting use to the collection cup on the bottom. Although this is a useful feature, it adds a step to the process of picking up a grinder and adding spice to a dish.
I still have my very first one from 25 years ago. I just recently had to order a new bottom for it, otherwise it works wonderfully. I purchased the white and black pepper mills and now use my old one to grind Italian seasonings that I use almost every day. It absolutely the greatest investment you will ever have and with the life time warranty, you can't go wrong. I have now purchased a few for presents.
They're a little expensive but the do warranty for life. Hope I never have to use the warranty.
From order through delivery to actual use the entire journey was and is five stars. The company is quick and responsive and the product does what it does flawlessly.
The Daily Grind - Our Humble Beginnings We've been grinding since 1982! A time when graffiti adorned the subways and crime was high. BUT an appreciation for gourmet cooking was slowly seeping into the old-fashioned kitchens of New York. Indeed on June 25th 1982 The New York Times ran a story about Pepper Grinders. It was written by the famous French Chef Pierre Franey. The entire article was dedicated to our world famous PepperMate Traditional Pepper Mill. It was a revolution in home cooking and even the experts agreed. "A new pepper mill has just been introduced on the market and it is one of the best I've come across. Called PepperMate, it is a sleek and beautifully designed model about six inches high, attractive and easy to operate." - Pierre Franey NYT 1982. Since then, we have moved with the times and elaborated on the utility, style and usefulness of our product lines. We like to claim that we gave the daily grind a whole NEW meaning! Relish the Grind & Savor that Flavor! Everything About Freshly Ground Pepper Just Pops Pre-ground pepper is about as fresh as the 50-year-old dried flowers on your grandmother's dresser. Instead, add a zing to your food by grinding fresh peppercorns. Close your eyes, and that grinding sounds like crackling logs on an open fire. While the dark, spicy flavor warms you up like a whisky on a cold winter night. So cozy and so satisfying - pre-ground doesn't even compare. Invisible to the naked eye… Although you can’t see it, you’ll definitely smell it. Your daily pepper grind exposes volatile oils and a spectrum of flavors into the air, taking you straight to food heaven. But, Peppermate is about MORE than helping you cook gourmet meals at home. We believe delicious meal times can become your warmest memories and cooking at home builds lasting culinary connections. Passing down recipes punctuated with flavor will create an unbreakable bond for generations to come.
