Pepper Grinders / Pepper Mills

Pepper grinders, also known as pepper mills, are an essential gadget item in any kitchen. A pepper grinder allows you to grind a variety of peppercorns just when they are used, such as right over your salad or cooking pot.

To your pepper grinder, you can add various types of peppercorns and grind them fresh for seasoning delight and luscious aroma. Just experiment with various types of peppercorns (also for sale below). And a pretty pepper grinder makes a great gift too!

At home I have this nice wooden Peugeot pepper grinder (see photo at the left) that we purchased years ago in France, however this brand is available in fine gourmet shops throughout the world or via the internet such as from this hub.

      I love pepper but have yet to invest in a pepper mill. I understand it takes the flavor to a whole new dimension. You've created a great resource.
