You will experience it, this gadget is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also very practical! It is suitable for grinding all types of peppercorns (white, black and red), and the contents are visible through the perspex window. Ideal for the table!  And to enjoy for years to come.                         

This pepper mill is not a professional grinder, and due to its grinding method (grating) it is not suitable for intensive use, such as in the kitchen. It is intended for grinding dry peppercorns and can be made suitable for grinding dry coarse salt. 

The dimensions of the mill are:

  • height approx. 150 mm
  • diameter 27.5mm

The mill is standard suitable for both pepper (corns) and salt and is equipped with a button with the letter "P". For specific use as a salt grater, a limited number of shafts are available marked "S". We have these in limited edition.

The mini grinder is less suitable for grinding so-called 'Szechuan peppers'. The berries of the Sichuan peppers are open and the seed coat can also be a bit tough and cannot be removed (you regularly make an empty hit).
But it is possible! Roast the Sichuan pepper until crispy in advance. Also applies to raye timur, sansho etc.
Not suitable for grinding pink pepper!

Gift?

Make an impression with a cool gift. . Buy this grater in a black pillow box with the printed "Food & spices" print. The pillow box also has room for a test tube, to top it all off. Make your own choice for a pepper that suits the taste of the person who surprises you with this special gift.

Operation general

The mechanism consists of a shaft with a grating surface that is pushed through a narrow opening simply by pressing the button with the thumb, like a ballpoint pen. 

If the grinder malfunctions - which can happen when many small fractions 'pile up', hold the grinder upside down for a moment and shake the contents up and down while pressing the grater (loosely) several times. Then he will definitely do it again.

If this is not the case, it may be due to not enough pepper in the container. Even if the grinder only contains small fragments during use, the grater may not 'catch' them. In both cases it helps to first turn the mill and, if necessary, fill it with new pepper.

Filling the mill

Unscrew the bottom segment, and fill the container upside down no more than 50%, until the pepper becomes visible in the window of the container. Keep the axle as centered as possible so that the unscrewed segment can be replaced without forcing. Do not tighten it unnecessarily. This is not necessary and can damage the thread. 


Maintenance of the mill

The mill requires hardly any maintenance. If you want to clean the container, unscrew it. Wash the grinder with lukewarm soapy water, not in the dishwasher. Assemble the grinder once all parts are completely dry.


Warning

Peppers contain essential oils. As a result, deposits can form on the inside of the container, making it opaque. This is unavoidable and mainly occurs with white, voatsiperifery and Sichuan peppers. 

Very occasionally, small hairline cracks occur in the acrylic.These can be the result of prolonged exposure to UV light (to maintain the quality of the pepper, never place your pepper mill in direct sunlight). These cracks are known as 'stress cracks'. 

Warranty

The performance of this product is covered by a 1-year warranty. This excludes the loss of clarity of the perspex container and/or the occurrence of hairline cracks, as described above.
