The problem is that the nut tends to slip during use and the grind gradually changes. I find that I have to keep adjusting it to maintain any kind of consistency to the grind. The bottom of the nut has ridges on it which are supposed to lock into a ridged plastic piece in the wooden cap, but it doesn't really seem to work as well as I had hoped.
The bonus is that it looks great and is solid as a rock and made in the USA.
If you use a lot of pepper, consider the larger one. This is more than enough for our use but because they keep the mill heavy an don't hollow it completely out, it doens't hold as many pepper corns ad it appears. Again, for most people the 6" mill is plenty big for fresh pepper.
I'd highly recommend Vic Firth mills.
I was not disappointed. The quality is outstanding. I purchased the mill in Cinnabar, and it is a stunning rusty red color. It looks great on my counter next to my red Le Creuset utensil holder. It is easy to fill (not so easy to clean, but then again, I haven't looked at their video on how to do that yet) and grinds pepper with seemingly zero effort. No huge chunks, no hand cramps - sheer perfection.

Not the quality I expected. I found a similar one at William Sonoma which was much better. The base of the grinder tends to drop without turning the top section. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
