Need help from a chef or wannabe like me, pepper grinder

Postby Alan » Tue Nov 29, 2016 12:08 am

I'm ready to toss my third pepper grinder, they work great for a few weeks and then I hardly get anything from them. I love the taste of fresh ground pepper but seems sooner or later I have to reach for the pepper shaker. As I said, the pepper grinder works great for a few weeks and then I can hardly get any pepper from it. I have tried cleaning them and dismantling them as much as I can and clean them, but I'm ready to toss my third one. Any help on a good one that doesn't break the bank or any tips that I'm missing on cleaning or adjusting them. Is there a good affordable one out there?

Only tip I have is to keep them nearly full to grind best. Other than that, are you sure you aren't using it upside down? :P

Nothin' prettier than a red Ford truck, a Massey Ferguson tractor and a red-n-white Hereford sittin' on the farm.

Thanks I didn't think about filling it up all the way it makes sense. I did draw an arrow on the grinder to show me up, but now I thinking the arrow may be upside down. :lol:

I've had a battery operated Peugeot that has lasted for years. Only the battery has let me down.
