My husband deals with a number of clients in his business and every Christmas season he's certain to receive a number of gifts from them in appreciation for his very high level of customer service, integrity and strong business dedication. This past Christmas it was a gift from a temporary agency however, that won my heart.
This gorgeous stainless steel pepper mill by Blomus mystified us at first. In all honesty it looked like a wine decanter of some sort and for the first few minutes after opening it we stood there looking at one another thinking, "hmmm, ok, we should know what this is....why don't we?" Of course as soon as we looked at the bottom portion of the item we realized that our assumptions that it had something to do with wine was ridiculous and both of us laughed because we had both been thinking the same thing.
This Pepper mill is sturdy with a large capacity. I placed a full bag of whole pepper corns into this grinder just before Christmas dinner and here it is May, and I use a lot of pepper on my food because I don't use any salt, and it is still delivering freshly ground pepper at every turn.
This mill has three settings which are controlled at the bottom of the mill, for fine, medium and course grind. It works effortlessly and the pepper is ground perfectly every time.
These mills are definitely not cheap from what I have been able to determine, coming it at $49.95 for this beauty. It looks great right along side all of my other stainless steel appliances and it has been an excellent addition to every meal.
This mill stands almost 12 inches tall and the pepper is ground by using a "t" shaped handle at the top. The top screws off to allow for refilling which is a simple matter of pouring the pepper corns into the reasonably wide opening once the top portion is removed. It cleans up easily and works very smoothly.
I have to say that although this was a gift given to my husband by a grateful Company appreciative of his patronage, it has become one of the most useful and in my opinion, favorite gifts that definitely gets used daily. A very nice product that is solidly made and very nice to place on the table for any occasion. I would now love to get the matching salt mill - perhaps next Christmas! ;)
