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.
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.
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.

I got this as a Christmas gift for my husband over a year ago, and he loves it (almost as much as he loves the fresh ground pepper it produces)! Read morePublished 8 days ago by Emily Sirkel
A beautiful addition to my kitchen which works as well as it looks.

This pepper mill is gorgeous. The stain is very dark, moreso than on the photo. It grinds very well, and the ceramic mechanism should last a long time. Read morePublished 1 month ago by T
