    Default Peper Mill; Who Has One?

    I bought mine after I once bought the McCormick Pepper Grinder. I fell in love with the idea of being able to grind my own black pepper while cooking and eating.

    But once the container is empty, it can't be refilled, and you have to buy another one!

    So I decided to get a wooden one. It's refillable and is very convenient to use!! I like it!

    I actually use one that I saw on the Frugal Gourmet years ago. It is based on a Middle-Eastern coffee grinder and has adjustable settings for coarse to fine grinding. It was made in Greece, but has all the same principles. I wish The Frug were still around.

    interesting, I will have to look into this. But grinding it is slightly fresher imo, which makes a lot of difference.

    The McCormick Pepper Grinder is really cheap. It's like 15 bucks and, assuming you don't eat black pepper on absolutely everything you consume, it should last a while.

    When, after a few years mine did run out, I panicked. The store where I bought mine (Big K) went out of business. I looked all over town and couldn't find one anywhere. So, being single-minded individual I am, I called my mother.

    She told me her next door neighbor had gone through a similar ordeal and hadn't had any crushed black pepper for weeks and was notably irritable at the fact. Her son, noting this irritability, got on the internet and actually found a way to refill the McCormick Pepper Grinder!

    If you type those words into google you're sure to find it. I know that sounds like a lot for black pepper... but when you want, you want it, right?

    I'd like to try the one that Paula uses on her shows!

    Seems real easy.

    I bought a Peugeot spent quite a bit on it but it was well worth it. I have had it for over 6 years and it still works the same as the day I bought it. Like one of these. Unfortunately they don't sell mine anymore.

    I have about half a dozen mills running around my house.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to do an Alton Brown and attach one to a drill....
