    Totally off topic: I need a new pepper mill. Can I call upon your wise readers for their thoughts?

    Bought my pepper mill today @ Amazon. The Unicorn Magnum Plus. No need to go look at Cooks Illustrated for me. Thanks.

    • Ha! I have the same company’s “Magnum” pepper mill. It does a fine job of grinding, and I like it, but the thing opens clockwise (or counter-clockwise, whatever), the same direction you turn to grind. So when you grind, at first, the filler port opens and peppercorns spill out. But there’s a trick to using it which your brain will figure out. After a month or so (my brain is much slower than others’), just as I was ready to duct tape the damn thing closed, I noticed that the port was no longer opening. The mill hadn’t changed, but I apparently had figured out how to grind without spilling the beans, so to speak.
      So now I love it – but there shouldn’t be a learning curve for something so seemingly simple as a pepper mill.

    Going back to an earlier thread of buying quality from the get-go, the peppermill I replaced was also made by Unicorn, the Peppergun, that I bought, get this, in 1987. I’d say I got my money’s worth.
