Product Description

Zassenhaus began in 1867 as an export store supplying small steel goods and hand tools. Then in 1904, the foundation for the future success was laid with the introduction of pepper mills. In 2000 Zassenhaus invented the first continuously adjustable grinding mechanism made from high quality German ceramic. Zassenhaus products are distinctive and unique and solidify our position as the leading supplier of premium spice and coffee mills. A mill is as good as its grinding mechanism as this alone determines how much flavor and aroma is released when the spices are ground. Zassenhaus patented German ceramic mechanism is for peppercorns, sea salt, spices and dried herbs. Each mill features six different adjustments from rough to fine grind. The original design of the 5.1-inch Speyer Pepper Mill dates back over 100 years. And while the look is that of a cherished antique, the inner workings are decidedly high-tech, featuring Zassenhaus' patented CeraPlus(R) German ceramic grinding mechanism that's actually harder than carbon steel. And unlike steel, whose blades corrode and become dull over time, the CeraPlus grinding mechanism is guaranteed for 25 years of flawless service. To grind, simply turn the charming crank, crowned by a ball finial. You can adjust the coarseness or fineness of the grind by twisting the 6-position dial ton the bottom. To fill, simply unscrew the top knob. Lathe-turned from solid beechwood in a dark stained finish.

After spending more time that I possibly should have deciding which pepper mill I wanted to spring for, I settled on this very unique looking Zassenhaus Speyer mill and almost a year down the road, I am very happy with my purchase. The quality of the mill's construction makes it feel as though it will not break anytime soon. The knob used for setting the coarseness/fineness of the ground pepper works smoothly and as outlined in the product description. The only part of the mill that looks like it could ever break is the adjustment knob which appears to be plastic. However, the knob does not feel flimsy or ill-fitting, just less Victorian-era indestructible than the rest of the mill. Honestly, I found a coarseness that I liked and rarely adjust the setting knob.

The only other comment that I will make is that the mill grinding handle on top is fairly hard to turn. If you expect to hold the mill in one hand and use your other hand to grip the little wooden ball and turn the mill crank smoothly, you are definitely going to be disappointed. I normally use my thumb and forefinger to turn the crank next to the spindle where it attaches on the top of the mill's wooden housing. I don't believe that I am using inappropriate sized peppercorns that would cause the handle to be so hard to crank and I have used various brands and varieties of peppercorn since I bought the mill and they all grind the same way. Fortunately, I have no trouble using the mill myself, though I could see others possibly fighting with it. Despite this, I would buy this mill again in a heartbeat - it looks great, it is well-made and durable and ultimately delivers a very consistent grind.

I bought this grinder for fresh ground pepper. It's fast, adjustable and high quality (unlike many I've tried). The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the rather small amount of pepper corns it will hold.

I love black pepper, I have since I was a kid. I put tons of it on almost every savory thing I eat. I have had dozens of peppermills and gave up on them and started buying big containers of coarse table grind pepper. I've been given battery powered griders as gifts and burned them up.

The Zassenhaus is wonderful. I can grind enough fresh pepper on my salad in a few seconds now.

Yes, I wish I had a bigger one, but how many times have I heard that? It doesn't hold a lot and with how fast and easy it is to grind, I have to refill this every 3-5 days, well I have a lot of free time on my hands now because I can crank out in a few seconds what used to take almost a minute.

As for the color of the wood and it's appearance. It's pretty stodgy and I like it. Kind of dark and foreboding. It's earthy looking. Like something passed on from ages of yore. It's well made and I'm hoping it will be. Worth every Eumeln.

I purchased this new grinder 2 months ago because my wrists got tired of turning and turning my anemic 5-year-old grinder. Just 2 seconds of grinding with this new one equals 30 seconds of grinding with the old one! The output is just incredible! I gave the old one to the mother-in-law (I know...I'm evil, hee hee).

Believe it or not, this is my favorite piece of kitchen tool/equipment. My wife and kids cannot understand my continued fascination with this gadget (maybe because it is a well engineered product, and as a mechanical engineer, it is obvious to me). I just love lots of pepper on my food and look for every excuse to use it...no, over-power my food with it. My three little kids just go slack-jawed when they see me whistling and gleefully carpet-bombing my food with little chunks of pepper. By the time I'm done, the kids are grinning and staring in wide-eyed shock at the huge conical mound of ground pepper on my plate. Obviously, I'm exaggerating...but just by a little bit here, folks.

The wood is very beautiful and hard; heavy with a solid feel in the hand; its surface very smoothly finished. It just feels like a high quality product, ready for a lifetime of hard reliable service.

Mine squeaked when I first turned the handle, so I applied a very thin layer of wax (as a lube) on the wood surface (ring-shaped) in contact with the metal handle's bottom surface and---voila, squeak gone! Try it if yours squeaks.

I'll try to remember to give an update review in 10 or 15 years.

The grinding action is fantastic -- graduated control for granularity is very good. The funky look is also fun. However,
this is really little, and the grinding handle does not move freely, so you need to use a weird leverage against the center spindle to force it around using two fingers.

Product description makes it clear this grinder is only about 5 inches in height, but it isn't clear that the interior chamber holding the peppercorns can only hold about two tablespoons at a time, and they are very difficult to get into the chamber (I can't get the center spindle out, so you have to drop a few peppercorns at a time through the center chamber, with the rest spilling all over the place).

In all, the grinding action and control is five stars. All else is two to three stars best case. I'll keep the unit because I don't want to bother shipping it back, but it won't see much useage given it's drawbacks.
