Top Customer Reviews
When I first got this grinder, I thought I had the perfect solution for my spice grinding needs. I used it multiple times per day for grinding pepper, cumin, coriander, mustard seeds, salt, and more. Then, the clear plastic (or acrylic) started to crack around the top after 3 or 4 weeks of regular use. That was annoying, and it made me worry it would break apart, but it didn't. Then a little plastic piece that helps push spices down into the grinding mechanism broke off, which again was annoying, but the grinder still worked. Finally, though, after a a total of about 3 months of use, the grinding mechanism just stopped working. I can't explain why; I even took it apart, inspected it, and put it back together. I would turn the handle, and it just sort of skipped; the handle would turn without turning the ceramic auger. It is now in the garbage. Kuhn offers a warranty, but why would I want another one of these things?
I found a similar (and cheaper) product, OXO Good Grips Pepper Mill, that I have been using for about a week. So far, it works great for all my needs and is more ergonomic and easy to use than this mill. It lacks the pieces that broke first in Kuhn mill, so it looks like about all there is that could fail is the grinding mechanism. I'll wait to review that product for a few months, after it has seen the use that the Kuhn mill went through.
The Rikon has the grind setting on the bottom, so it can't change.
With the ceramic grinder, it makes very uniform pepper as long as you crank.
It goes from very fine to much larger pieces.
The ceramic should last many years.
Of course, it will grind almost anything you can get in it.
I took this one apart to clean it before I put pepper corns in it.
Very solidly constructed. It also has a 5 year guarantee.
I have changed my rating for this grinder. The clear plastic part that holds the peppercorns is cracked in several places. I will have to pay the postage to send it back to the company and have it replaced.
What a disappointment!

One year later, I have a serious problem with this grinder. The top reduction drive makes strange noises and sometimes doesn't turn.
The clear plastic upper part is cracked again.
I have contacted Kuhn Rikon, and unless they pay postage, I will not send it in for replacement.
I can't recommend this at all!!
I really expected much better quality from Kuhn Rikon.
Which is too bad, because I liked it very much while it worked. Make the gears more rugged and I might buy another one.
