New Pepper Mill

I know we have some pepper lovers here. The prototype got great reviews from professionals. I’ll let you know how it is once it arrives this summer.

    I ordered it too on their first run, looks promising.

    Love pepper and have relied of my very solid Vic Firth pepper mills for years.   This sucker, though, looks like It could cut my milling time way down.   Of course I wonder if It would burn through my favored Tellicherry too quick?

    Very cool, but I'll stick with my Oxo Good Grips for normal needs or my electric spice grinder for times when I need a bucketful.

    It looks like Oxo is pretty much on top of the decently priced pepper mills.  I use the Peugeot for finishing pepper.  Trudeau has a couple of mills with decently high output but I got fedup of replacing them every other year and the plastic bits in the pepper when they break is not cool.

    I would not be too concerned with that, just fewer turns.  Quality and consistency if the grind is the question mark and for the price it was a risk but we’ll see.  Impulse buy, I’ve had good luck with Indiegogo so far 🤷‍♂️

    For comparison, my Magnum pepper grinder (about 15-20y.o.?) gets at least 4g (.141 oz minimum) of pepper when cranked ten times at the widest setting.( ...I don’t have a scale that reads ounces to three decimal places) 

    That’s virtually the same as the contender in the posted chart, and far more than the .055oz it is credited.

    Funny video but not sure I could pay that much for a pepper mill. 

    Don't pepper your children.

    30+ years ago, $3 at a thrift store. Found a second one for around the same price a few years later. On is set for coarse, one is set for fine. They get heavy use, no issues. Easy to get quantity quickly.

    Cool but I just don’t need that much pepper in a hurry

    When a recipe calls for 90 twists of the pepper mill, how do I know which one to use ?
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 35,386
    $150?  Unless it vibrates I doubt I would get spousel unit buy-in.

    I hear you. I have a Trudeau that I’ve loved for about a year but it’s acting up already.

    How so?  Did your pepper grinder dress up in black face for an egg fest?

    This made me genuinely lol. I’m glad to see you keep up with what happens North of the border.

  • So it turns out Trudeau cleans up nicely. Took it apart today and it worked upon putting it back together. Must have been a Bloc-age.

    I got a couple Zassenhaus crank grinders over 20 years ago when Penzeys still sold them and they still work like new. They have a really nice burr grinder that can be adjusted to deliver anything between cracked pepper and dust. You can grind a boatload of pepper lightening quick. Bed Bath and Beyond sells them now.

    They loom nice too
