I have this one and love it. It holds a ton of pepper and grinds large volumes easily when needed

i'm coming near the end of my stop-gap coarse ground pepper container, waiting for a great pepper grinder to jump out at me. ready-to-go coarse ground pepper is okay for the stove top, not the best for my plate....

I've had this William Bounds ceramic grinder mill for over 17 years and love it. I can choose "Fine, Medium or Coarse" grind. It grinds the peppercorns accurately, easily and in more than adequate quantities for all I've ever wanted.

I use it, on the average, twice a day and it's never failed me yet and it didn't break the bank when I bought it.

Thank you for showing that one, Katie. I'm going to order one!

I got this one about a year ago.
Trudeau Elite Graviti Pepper Mill

I have Arthritis & Neuropathy in my hands, making it hard to
use a Pepper Mill. This one is Battery powered, and works great.
It does have some drawbacks though....it has a small hopper, so
you need to refill it more often. Otherwise it's quick, easy and
cool. Also everybody will want to use it because it's fun;
resulting in it needing to be refilled again.

I bought it on Amazon.com; but you may be able to find it
at some places locally.

I love my old Peugeot. I've had it for years and it has a huge history. When I went to replace it, my local spice merchant took one off his shelf and showed me how to take it apart, clean and fix it. It may not have had the nine lives of a cat, but pretty darned close.
