Many of our authorities thought this 9" tall, contemporary black pepper mill was top notch- it met all our criteria: a comfortable grip, a grind that is easily adjustable, and a nut at the base that is independent of the loading ring in the mill's body--so there's no need to reset the grind after refilling. It holds over a cup of peppercorns that are easily added through the large hole on the side of the mill, and works very fast & efficiently, according to Cook's Illustrated, who includes it in their "Best" category. The grinding mechanism has nickel-plated heads that will maintain their cutting edges and won't rust. The Magnum Plus has a lifetime guarantee. Not battery-operated.
This grinder performs prefectly. There's nothing else to say about this one, except that you wish it would stay clean on the outside while using it with dirty cooking hands. But I haven't yet met a pepper grinder that can prevent itself from getting dirty, or prevent itself from leaving pepper crumbs on the bottom after using it. Aside from those practically impossible features for a pepper grinder to have, this one is great.
This replaced a Chef'n Ball that wore out. I miss needing only one hand to grind pepper, but this is definitely the best tower grinder I've ever used, or owned.
This pepper mill is very easy to load and very easy to use! Not the best looking
but best operating.
a practical compromise from the more decorative and expensive peppermills and what does the job with ease because of the side load feature and the adjustable grind..
I am very pleased that I purchased the Magnum Pepper Mill. I had read the reviews but was reluctant to pay $39.00 for a pepper mill. My mistake. This is the last pepper mill I will ever buy.
After reading the reviews of this in Cooks Illustrated and on line, I decided to buy one. I love it and have ordered another for my cabin. I do, however agree with on of the other reviewers regarding how easily the "fill hole" opens so you have to watch that. Otherwise it is GREAT!
I've been looking for pepper mill that grinds quickly. I saw it reviewed on cooksillustrated.com and it performs like a champ. I highly reccommed it for those who use a lot of fresh ground pepper while cooking.
This is a serious pepper mill, and it does a really good job: even a single turn makes a lot of pepper. The unit seems well-made, but also rather expensive. Time will tell whether the grinding gears hold up.
Really does a great job grinding pepper. I was wondering if the 9
Pricey, but the best I have used to date. Easy to refill.
Easy to use, lots of pepper with little effort.
This is as good as the reviews have said it is. Although it is a little pricey it sure has made things easier and quicker when seasoning large items. I have not had any problems twisting open the reservoir hole.
This is a fabulous pepper mill. I also ordered after reading about it in Cook's Illustrated. Tons of pepper and it easily changes from coarse to fine. My only gripe is I have to use a funnel to get the peppercorns in. But since it holds a lot, it's not that often!
Love the prolific output of this device. I bought it on Cooks Illustrated's recommendation and am not disappointed.
Large capacity. Adjusts to give me any size grind I want. Only drawback is it was a little hard to turn at first. Not good for someone with arthritis. Seems to be getting easier, though, as I use it.
Have two, one for salt and one for pepper-
Have given this item as a gift to everyone I can -
Don't waste money on any others!
This is my second one. I bought one from you a few months ago and am actually having a problem with it and maybe you can help me. While I like my pepper coarsely ground, I cannot get my older grinder to give me pepper that is even remotely a coarse grind. It is coming out in huge chunks now and the adjustment knob at the bottom seems to be stuck--very little movement and discernable difference in grind. Is this something that is covered by a warranty or do you have any suggestions?
This is an excellent pepper mill with easy to change grind settings. The only minor drawback is that placing the pepper into the mill involves making a funnel out of paper or use of a regular funnel to put the pepper into the mill. However, this minor drawback is offset by its excellent operation.
If you live with someone who appreciates pepper, this is the mill for you. It grinds so well, it's fun to get carried away. We had another manual mill, which we have ground for years, filling its tiny bin carefully, periodically losing the silver nut which kept its grinding mechanism together. Technology has really improved the fresh pepper experience. My only wish was to have it in silver versus its practical black plastic, but hey, I'll take functionality over looks any day.
This is the best quality pepper mill I haave owned to date. I really like the fact that I can regulate the grind.

Kosher salt got its name from its use in the koshering process, where, because of its large grain, it does a better job than fine salt drawing moisture from meats. This ability to draw liquids from foods also makes it useful in preserving and is used in curing prosciutto and brining sauerkraut.
