Product Description

Quick loading, large storage, extraordinary range of grind size, with an oversize milling mechanism for very fast grinding. A serving tray is included to help contain pepper dust. 6" high in black for pepper. The Magnum and the Magnum Plus are our most aggressive grinders. If you use a lot of pepper, these are for you. The grind size will range from medium fine to extra coarse by adjusting the thumbscrew on the bottom. Our other grinders, the Keytop, Pepperstick, and Peppergun use our standard size precisely cut steel mechanism that will grind somewhat finer. You can click on the product images to see the different sizes of the milling mechanisms.

It's easy to fill and easy to use.
Pike Sullivan
Again, I think if you wait a few years, there will be a cheaper, good-enough imitation to buy, and you will save money.

You can set the grind from very fine to nice and coarse.

I read about this mill in Cook's Illustrated or someplace, and despite my frugality and cheapness, I decided to treat myself to it. Three years later, I am very impressed by this mill's powerfulness:

Very ergonomic, and you don't have to exert yourself too much to make it work.

Very easy to fill - the easiest one to fill. (I will NEVER go back to the traditional mill!) In a few years, there will be made in China imitations of this one (made in Italy).

Black plastic does not look plasticky, rather, looks modern, hefty and elegant, and easy to wipe clean.

Again, I think if you wait a few years, there will be a cheaper, good-enough imitation to buy, and you will save money. But I doubt that the knock offs will have the heft, the workmanship, and the beauty of this one.

Believe me, I looked for a copycat, but this mill is pretty special!

I couldn't decide between the Unicorn Keytop and the Unicorn Magnum, so I bought one of each. After a week of testing, here's my verdict: I prefer the Keytop. Its smaller gear teeth are capable of a finer grind than the Magnum, important for delicate dishes and when you want the pepper to be tasted but not seen. The Magnum does have several advantages. Its grinding mechanism is larger than that of the Keytop and produces more pepper per rotation, but even so, the Keytop produces plenty of pepper with little effort. The Magnum may also prove to be more durable than the Keytop. It's heavier and features a metal screw for adjusting the grind vs. the Keytop's plastic screw. And I wish the Keytop came with the Magnum's useful little dust collection tray. But if you're looking for a peppermill capable of a very find grind (as well as coarse and everything in between), I'd recommend the Keytop. They are both top notch, though, so I'm giving 5 stars to each. Ergonomically, both models are easy to fill, grab, and use. By the way.... If you call the company, they'll send you a pepper-dust collection tray for your Keytop for a few extra bucks.

I also purchased this mill based on a review in Cook's Illustrated. It worked well for a couple of years, although I also experienced the design flaw with the filler opening that can easily open when you don't want it to. The disappointment came when the plastic cracked around the axle of the grinder mechanism, rendering the mill useless. It shouldn't be necessary to discard and replace a tool after only a couple of years of moderate use.

I grudgingly give this peppermill 3-1/2 stars. I say grudgingly because, as far as its grinding performance, this peppermill is absolutely incredible, the best I've ever used! The range of grind sizes, from powdery fine to barely cracked, is sufficient for pretty much any dish you can imagine. But best of all is the ease-of-use and speed! Grinding a significant amount of pepper for a recipe is often quite tedious--and even painful--when using most pepper grinders, but not when using this one. This peppermill has a very smooth operation and puts out copious amounts of freshly ground pepper in no time. It grinds so quickly and effortlessly that you really have to watch what you're doing or you could quickly end up with way too much pepper in your food!

My only complaint, and the reason for my 4-star rating, is the poor design of the filling hole and its cover. Here's the basic design: Near the top of a hollow peppercorn chamber there is a large hole, which is used to fill the grinder with peppercorns. This hole is covered tube-shaped piece that lies on top of the grinder's body. To close this filling hole, the solid part of the tube is rotated so that it blocks and covers the filling whole; to open, the tube is rotated so that a matching hole in the tube is aligned with the filling hole.

There are two problems associated with this design: 1) to grind pepper, you turn the top knob clockwise; to reveal and open the filling hole, you turn the covering tube clockwise. This is a problem because 2) the top knob and the filling hole cover tube are right next to each other.

Very good mill, but the direction of rotation of the grinder is the same direction as the same as that needed to open the fill port. You can open it and spill if not paying attention, or if too much vino has been consumed.

Don't let this simple looks of this pepper mill fool you. It is by far the best pepper mill I've ever used! I've bought many pepper mills including a Peugeot, always looking for a better one. This one is the last one I'll ever buy (OK, maybe I'll buy a couple more like it for other kinds of pepper) because it's so good.

The grind is easily adjustable from very fine to very coarse (how I like it) and it holds a large quantity of peppercorns. The output is also remarkable you get more ground pepper in one turn of this mill than in 3-4 of others. Filling is also very simple and quick.

Every one who uses a pepper mill should have one of these!
