Spice up your bland potatoes or eggs and kick your meats up a notch as you season your food using these pepper mills. Pepper mills are used for more precise distribution of seasoning than your average shakers. Grinding peppercorns or sea salt can give you coarser ingredients and more distinct flavors. Everybody feels fancier when a waiter at a restaurant offers you fresh pepper and comes over with a pepper mill. So if you’re sick of just plain old black pepper or table salt, pick up any of these pepper mills and start seasoning.
Sleekest Pepper Mill
Built to maintain freshness, the Cole & Mason Derwent Pepper Grinder has a clear, acrylic mill with a stainless steel finish. The hardened, carbon steel pepper grinding mechanism has six precise grinding levels, so you can create finely ground pepper or coarser pieces. The diamond-cut salt grinding mechanism breaks down the granules into three different consistencies. The brand-new design makes it easy to turn, giving you consistent churns. The precision mechanism doesn’t crush the peppercorns but, instead, strips them down by layer. The shaker body also doubles as a nice level, allowing you to refill the mill with ease. It’s only 7.5″, so it will easily fit on any countertop or table.
Best Wood Pepper Mill
Providing a classy experience, the Olde Thompson 17″ Hotel Wood Pepper Mill livens up any dinner party. This tall, walnut-stained pepper mill can be easily adjusted based on how you like your pepper. Just turning the nut at the top will allow you to change from coarse to fine pepper. The professional-quality, carbon steel grinder has a lifetime guarantee. All you need to do to use it is turn the top knob clockwise and your pepper will begin to come out. You can hand wipe the pepper mill to clean it. Do not immerse it in water.
Best Electric Pepper Mill
The CHEW FUN Electric Gravity Pepper Grinder or Salt Mill has adjustable ceramic blades and an adjustable grinder knob. The spice container is wide, so it will easily fit peppercorns or salt. It runs on six AAA batteries and has a built-in, blue LED light that allows you to see exactly how much pepper or salt you’re putting on your food. The grinder just needs to be flipped on to start, so you don’t need two hands to operate it. The glass container is dishwasher safe and the grinder can be wiped down. It is made from BPA and toxic-free materials, so it can be used with any spice.
