I value it because it grinds very fine or very coarse, as needed.
The aluminum is easy to hold and easy to keep clean.
The size is great for easy, rapid grinding.
It has been worth its price to me many times over.
Yes, it is pricey - especially for the small size and, thus, capacity of the grinder. So what? The grinding mechanism is fully adjustable (on the bottom, not the top) and it absolutely "rains" pepper onto whatever you wish. You can empty the entire mill in a few minutes; it is that efficient. The fill chute beats most of the "top-loader" types in terms of ease of use.
I also have big hands (more than an octave spread) and have no problems using this pepper mill. I use this one for black pepper and a William Bounds for white pepper.
So it may be a case of poor quality control, or perhaps Perfex has compromised the quality while holding the price.
I've changed decor, dishes and even homes over the years and this classic always looks great with whatever I choose to pair it with; I use it on the table as well, having long since retired ordinary salt shakers. Doesn't get gummed up if I have to hold it over a steaming plate.
Being that mine is nearly a decade old that should say something about its longevity but also a caution in case they've changed anything regarding manufacturing. Mine is made in France and came with a lifetime warranty - you may want to check those sort of things. If ever anything would happen to it I would definitely purchase again - highly recommended.
I purchased it because of the reviews and the reputation of the pepper mill. I thought I finally got a pepper mill that would work well and stay good for a long time, but it didn't turn out so good. It didn't grind pepper well and left some shiny metal shaving. I am glad that I didn't grind it straight in my food.
This one I kept though it does require tightening of the knurled wheel at the bottom due to the fact that it also unscrews itself as you grind the pepper. However, these days my Perfex sits prominently on a shelf over my professional stove whereas the task of grinding pepper at my dinner table has been quietly taken over by a $10 wooden nameless grinder that may not impress anyone, but it does the job with substantially more reliability than my exquisite Perfex. So, why do these perfex grinders cost so much? Park it with your Rolex watch and Viking range.

So disappointing. I don't think it's made by Perfex. I waited a long time for this, and unfortunately it wasn't worth it, and it was quite expensive.Published 7 months ago by Gail P.
