Product Description

You'll love this elegant professional pepper mill from William Bounds. The unique grinding mechanism crushes rather than grinds the spices delivering consistent coarse, medium or fine grinds without grinding metal against metal. In the world of spice and pepper mills, William Bounds products are in a class of their own. They add a touch of sophistication and elegance to your kitchen and/or dining room. And because you are using freshly ground spices, they also add wonderful flavoring to your food. Made in USA

Amazon.com

William Bounds, a 30-year-old company, prides itself on never having had to replace a grinding mechanism because of wear. This hefty, 12-1/2-inch-tall professional chef's mill feels solid, heavy but balanced, and has a smooth stainless-steel finish. Its classic shape is ergonomic in the hands and will look handsome on a countertop. It's made to deliver large quantities of pepper or other spices, and two short twists of the mill's rounded top delivers enough pepper for a small salad. You might want to keep it in the kitchen, though, where you could season a dozen roast chickens without wearing yourself out. --Maria Dolan

I never imagined I would splurge and buy a pricey pepper mill, but have always wanted a good one. But when I got a Amazon.com gift certificate, I couldn't resist. I like the idea of a ceramic grinding mechanism, adjustable grinding size, and heavy stainless construction. When it arrived, I filled it with peppercorns, and turned it 1/2 turn. It broke. The method for connecting the top of the mill to the stainless steel shaft is a weak plastic part. Since it came apart when it broke, I could see that I was lucky mine broke immediately, so I could return it. There is no way this mechanism would hold up for extended use. And when you pay this much for a pepper mill, you want extended use. Don't buy it.

I cook at home alot (apparently rare in NY), and have been using this mill (and a similar one for salt crystals) for over 4 years and I have never had a problem with it. The only caveats I have is that sometimes the setting moves from fine to course when heavy grinding, also the top may come zipping off if not screwed down properly. I love the solid weight and also the fact that the grind mechanism is raised, so that on wet surfaces it doesn't get in contact with the water, this being the original reason I bought it after my previous mill went rusty.

I received a William Bounds HM 12" Professional Pepper Mill as a gift from my sister (a foodie like me), about 25+ years ago, (give or take). I have always loved its heftiness, size, and consistent grind in each of the three settings. I have used it constantly since I got it.

About 10 or 12 years ago, it started having problems. II think it was the mechanism in the top (grinder) that failed. I contacted the company (they have a "limited lifetime" warranty). They were quite helpful, and told me that if I shipped it to them for repair, they'd fix and sent it back. All I had to cover was the UPS charge. Off it went- about a week or so later, I got it back, fixed, with a brand new top, and filled with peppercorns!

Recently, I started having problems again (10-12 years after their first repair). I called, described the issue, and sent pics. They said it looked like the top again, and sent me a brand new top with new inner mechanism. It arrived in about 4 days. It works perfectly again. Once again, they were friendly, helpful, and took care of business.

The inner mechanism, which is plastic, was what gave out both times, but remember folks, we're talking about 25+ years of constant use, so I can't complain about the quality. Also, they said lifetime warranty, and they meant it. It's hard to find a company that has even been in business that long, let alone one that supports their products for decades. I love this pepper mill, and I'd recommend it to anyone. I especially like the way they handle their business and product support.

Clearly this was not purchased through Amazon (e-commerce didn't even exist when I was given this as a gift 25+ years ago), FYI this is a real review by an appreciative user of this product.
