I just bought the OXO Good Grips Pepper Mill from Amazon For $12.00.
I love my other grinders but sometimes I can't unscrew them easily to refill (arthritis stinks!!). So I will give this a try.
I have many OXO products and have NEVER been unhappy with any of them.
I have 4 grinders 1 filled with peppercorn blend, 1 with salt, 1 with red pepper flakes and 1 with an herb and spice blend. I use them several times a day and may need to switch to the OXO brand grinders.
This is OXO at it best and original concept. To help elderly arthritic hands do everyday simple chores.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
The Atlas peppermill also employs the handle. It is also brass with a stainless steel replaceable grinding mechanism. It requires a 7/16" wrench to remove the handle to fill it though.
I found an old, open end wrench in the basement and just keep it in the kitchen drawer.
But it was expensive. However, I do not see us buying another one in our lifetime.
Maybe a mechanism? I have had mine for over 15 years and it grinds as good today as it did brand new.
