The Pepper Cannon is more expensive than ordinary mills, because ordinary mills are ordinary. Ordinary pepper mills are not milled from solid chunks of metal. They do not feature high carbon stainless steel burr sets supported by bearings and driven by an oversized stainless steel drive shaft.
When considering the best pepper mill for you, it's important to note that if you enjoy endless cranking to produce a minimal quantity of inconsistently ground pepper, the pepper cannon may not be the pepper mill for you. If you enjoy the scent of burning plastic, the sensation of wood splinters, and/or laying on dirty kitchen floors to retrieve those little adjuster nuts that get dropped and roll under the fridge when you have the audacity to attempt a refill of your pepper grinder, the Pepper Cannon may not be the pepper mill for you. If stale pre ground pepper of questionable origin stored in clear pepper shakers in direct sunlight since two presidents ago is too spicy for you, the Pepper Cannon may not be the pepper grinder for you.If you love pepper (or if you love someone who loves pepper), the Pepper Cannon is for you. Your receive the wrong item.
