McCormick Grinders

Anybody else use these?

McCormick Grinders

Iíve got the black peppercorn, pepper medley, coarse sea salt, and garlic pepper.

I had a pepper grinder long ago, but didnít like it. It didnít work as well as I thought it should. But these things are prefilled, disposable, and work like a champ. Great grinding mechanism, and rather addictive to use. Iím loving these things.

I too have bought many pepper grinders that are expensive yet proved worthless. My DH and I have noticed that those McCormick grinders do the job better then any of the useless grinders I'm collecting on my counter.

We've had a William Bounds ceramic pepper grinder for many years and couldn't be happier. A year or so ago, we had a problem with the ball on the top of the handle. Called the company. They sent not one, but two, new pieces at no charge.

The grinder can be adjusted from very fine to quite coarse. It's the only grinder we use for pepper.

What an explosion of "grilling" and seasoning blends there
has been lately!

I like the idea of the grinders, but not the disposable aspect.
Knowing me, I will be trying to refill the darn things with my
own blends, LOL!

Katie, my last grinder was a Williams Bounds and it's been a bear! Dumb luck I guess!
