Pepper Mills

I've been shopping around the net for pepper mills. I have an Old Thompson acrylic 12" and have never been truley happy with it's grind, usually too course. I'm thinking about an Atlas 8 1/2" Brass. Any opinions?

Steve check out PCFallon. I have the 12" professional salt and pepper grinders and like both of them. They are instantly adjustable for three different grinds and work great. Here is a link. I dont know how it will appear but it should take you to the site whether its clickable or not. http://www.pcfallon.com/

I am not familiar with the Altas pepper mills. I personally like William Bound.

The ones I just posted about are made by W.Bounds. I agree with GB.

Claire and Stevie, that is what I have a Peugeot. I got it from my brother for my birthday. It is the best peppermill that I have ever had.

I liked the Atlas alot but after reading some reviews and testimonials I elected for the 8" Peugeot. That site had the best price and free shipping over $59.00. I couldn't beleive they had an All-Clad 1qt. saucepan on special for $19.95 so I bought that to bring my total to $59.90 It doesn't come with a lid but I already have a 1 1/2qt. with a lid so it should fit.
