Product Description

The top of our Unicorn line. The features of our Magnum in a larger size for added peppercorn storage and easier handling. Extra large steel mechanism, huge capacity, infinitely adjustable grind size with bottom thumbscrew, sliding ring side loading, comfortable grip, very fast grinding. Easy to clean with household glass cleaner and a paper towel. No serving tray or matching salt mill. 9" high in black only. 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.

The Unicorn Magnum Plus is a fantastic pepper mill! Some key features include:

* Grind Quality
It's very easy to set your grind at the base, and it maintains your preferred grind consistently, use-after-use.

* Huge Output
You get a LOT of pepper per grind!

* Huge Storage Area
This pepper mill has one of the largest storage areas for pepper that I've seen. It takes a very long time to go through this much pepper!

* Easy to Fill
On the off-chance that you might need to refill your pepper grinder one day, it is very simple to do so. No screws or parts to remove... simply twist a covering located near the top of the pepper mill and refill. It may be good to note, however, that as easy as it is to refill, it is just as easy to UNfill... I accidently emptied peppercorns all over my kitchen floor one day when I inadvertently twisted the cover.

* Comfortable to Use
This pepper mill, above all, is comfortable to use. Whether you want a little pepper or a lot, this pepper mill will not cramp your hand or cause you any pain. This is a big plus when you are trying to add a lot of pepper to a steak or a soup.

The only real downside of this pepper mill is its looks. It's large, black, and made of plastic -- not the most attractive item on the kitchen counter. If it were stainless steel, or in some other way had a neat modern look, it would be absolutely perfect.

Although I think it is certainly worth it, the price is a little steep. If you are looking for something a bit cheaper, I read that Cooks Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen also recommends the "Oxo Grind It" and the "Zyliss Large Pepper Mill" as good buys.

Consider the lowly pepper mill, charged with a function so pedestrian one might imagine its design would have been perfected centuries ago. Ask for pepper in a restaurant and most likely a waiter, not your waiter but a special waiter, will arrive with something resembling a baseball bat which he or she waves menacingly over your plate until at last you cry, "Uncle".

Home mills are almost invariably short and bulbous, sporting jaunty S-shaped brass cranks. Routinely made of wood specially designed to attract and retain kitchen grime, they resemble something turned on a lathe by a moderately talented 6th-grader in a remedial shop class. With the capacity of 7.7 peppercorns, inserted with tweezers through an almost inaccessible door, these mills manage to generate a thin film of pepper dust before jamming completely.

The advent of industrial chic ushered in the stainless steel equivalent. More attractive and expensive than their predecessors, they matched them pound for pound where it counts, uselessness. The arrival of the Unicorn Magnum Plus Pepper Mill heralds the end of the quest for pepper mill perfection.

Like a prizefighter surveying his opponent on the canvas, it grinds rock-hard peppercorns into flakes effortlessly, as if to say, "Is that all you've got for me?" Filling is fast, simple, and intuitive while capacity is nothing short of cavernous. Once topped-off you're set for a good long while, perhaps one full political administration, or until the complete collapse of civilization, whichever comes first.

Great grip, easy to use, adjustable grind that delivers consistently. Design criticisms, predicated on materials used rather than its exemplary good looks, are misguided.

I own God knows how many pepper mills, ranging from one that looks like a wine bottle to a battery-powered electric one. This however is the best I have EVER used... one turn of the screw puts out enough pepper for cooking just about anything. Moreover, the storage container is huge, holding two or three typical pepper jars. Though Amazon doesn't seem to sell it, I'd also recommend the similar Salt mill from the same company.

I got my new highly rated peppermill and loaded it up, started grinding away on a couple of thick cut pork chops. So far so good. All of a sudden there are peppercorns all over the chops and the cutting board.

OK I admit I am three glasses into a bottle of Voignier, but still I see the flaw. Like all peppermills, you turn the top clockwise to grind pepper. The way you load the peppercorns in to this mill is by pouring them into a large hole right below the grinding wheel at the top. This hole is accessed by turning a ring CLOCKWISE, thereby exposing the large hole in which you pour the peppercorns, which coincidentally is the same large hole through which the peppercorns escaped all over my chops and the surrounding area. So you turn the grinder in the same direction you turn the ring right below which covers the large access hole. WHOOPS.

It seems that if you just made the ring covering the access hole turn COUNTER-CLOCKWISE, you would eliminate the risk of a wine-infused cook spilling peppercorns all over creation. Easy fix. On the other hand I created a new dish- "1000 Peppercorn Encrusted Thick Cut Pork Chops".

I think I will accommodate for this flaw, because this mill is a grinding fool and I like it, but be forewarned.
