Best Grinders
This is the best grinder I've owned. I bought one for pepper last year and used it lot. I was a little weary because it is in plastic but it is amazingly durable and works really easily. I now have several (salt, pepper, spices). I also bought a pair for a friend with a medical condition that weakens her hands so that she cannot grasp and turn the usual grinder. She has no problem with these

Kuhn Rikon Rachet Mill
Kuhn Rikon is a wonderful company. I have never bought anything made by them that was not of the highest quality.
This little rachet mill is amazing. I have purchased other mills, higher priced than this one, and this one is by far the best and most durable mill around.
I have used it for salt and pepper of course and have used one for cloves, pepperocini and other spices. You will not regret this purchase
July 15, 2013
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my ratchet!
This has got to be the finest mill made!! When I found this I was looking for a high output pepper mill because my hands got sore grinding a large amount of pepper when I make biscuits and gravy as the gravy requires a large amount of pepper and fresh ground is SOOOOOOO much better than pre-ground! I now have three! One for salt, one for rainbow pepper pods, and one for black pepper. I only wish Sur La Table carried all the colors it comes in so I could get the purple one for my Himalayan salt

Kitchen workhorse!
Needed a mill for white pepper, and didn't want to spend a lot. This mill works great. You can see long before you need to refill, and this is the easiest mill to refill, bar none, thanks to the tilting door. Works very quickly, and is a fun way to include kids (or novice friends) in the cooking process. Great value, too
December 9, 2013
Ratchet Mill is Great
We have had LOTS of pepper grinders over the years and this is by far the best (and especially for the price). As we are getting older, the way this works is much better than the twisting action needed to operate a normal pepper grinder
December 20, 2013
Wonderful Mill for cooking
I used this mill at the Sur La Table Cooking school and was impressed by the adjustablilty of the grind and the ease of use, particularly for cooking. Bought one for salt and one for pepper. Love Kuhn Rikon stuff, my kitchen is full of it. Love the way it is made and how it works
September 29, 2013
Best mills I've used
They are fantastic -- easy to load the spices in, the ratchet is fantastic and I've never had a problem with salt or pepper getting stuck in the grinder. Can put out a lot of salt, pepper or whatever spice you want very quickly and easily. I've had them 5 months and I still absolutely love them and would highly recommend to anyone. Just a great product, which is appreciated after breaking 3 salt/pepper grinders within the 5 months prior. Very well made.
August 13, 2014
Easy to use!!
These ratchet mills ROCK!
They are so easy to use!
I find myself trying to find things I can put fresh salt and pepper on!
Thank you for making such a QUALITY product!!
January 17, 2014
Been Looking For These All My Life
I have spent big bucks on high end peppermills and have never been truly satisfied. They were either too difficult to load the pepper corns into or hard to use. The Kuhn Rikon solves both of my complaints. Easy to load and easy to use. What more can you ask for?

They are a unique gift for house warming parties. Customer reviews were positive mostly. Price is better than Amazon.
Robert J on Dec 29, 2016
liked the idea of a high output mill, and the red was the right color for my kitchen
Karen K on Dec 28, 2016
We own two of these Kuhn Rikon ratchet mills, and they work very well...even after a year of use. Most other mills that we've owned begin to malfunction, but these do not. We are so impressed with them, that we are purchasing sets for both of our sons.
Lucinda D on Dec 28, 2016
Because they are fabulous!
Mary G on Dec 26, 2016
Easier than turning a twist type.
Linda B on Dec 26, 2016
I got these to attach to stuffed Santa Claus's in gift baskets. Plus the fact it does not need batteries and will do the same job as one that requires them.
Jean B on Dec 21, 2016
I own a set myself and I love them!
caryn b on Dec 21, 2016

Chinese wife with Chinese spices. This should be better than running them all through the same electric grinder then filling used spice shakers.

Love this, give them as gifts.
Elizabeth T on Dec 14, 2016
My sister-in-law was using hers at Thanksgiving and I liked how quickly it could grind a lot of pepper -- much faster than my Peugeot mill. (I love the Peugeot mills as well, but if you need a large quantity for a recipe, this is faster.)
Cindy H on Dec 14, 2016
My favorite salt and pepper mills. Bought these for my daughter for Christmas
Laura S on Dec 14, 2016
fun easy to use. making it a stocking stuffer this year
Donald G on Dec 14, 2016
I used this item during a Sur la Table cooking class. It's easy to use, looks nice, and works very well.
Sujatha R on Dec 14, 2016
My third mill, works great. I use one to grind peppercorns, the other one for Himalayan salt., will give this one to my daughter. Very sturdy mill, it should last.
KIM B on Dec 12, 2016
I tried this pepper mill out at the Sur La Table store and it was noticeably better than other brands. The pepper broke up more evenly and it's easier to use the hand crank when you have wet hands
Erica B on Dec 12, 2016
It is going to look great on the counter top
Mary-Rina S on Dec 12, 2016
Among my favorite "gifted items". Have had an occasional "roach", but the concept is GREAT.
Randi T on Dec 11, 2016
Bought this for myself and have used it for over 2 years. It works so well, and still in good working condition. Now bought another as a gift for my daughter.
Barbara F on Dec 8, 2016
I have spices I would like to use in this,rather then buying them already ground up

I have these shakers and they are wonderful and quick and easy to work with! I highly recommend them which is why I am buying these as gifts.

Ann C on Dec 5, 2016

Susan P on Dec 5, 2016
I have one and love it. All others that I have purchased always broke or did not grind properly. This one works. I use black for pepper and white for salt. This is a gift for my daughter.
Berniece A on Dec 4, 2016

Teri T on Jan 17, 2017
my grinder fell apart can it be put back together?
Rayma S on Jul 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Don't believe this is a good answer! I love this mill, but having the bottom fall out and peppercorns go all over the kitchen isn't acceptable. Mine was the older model with a larger handle. Any evidence this newer version is a redesign of the mechanism that holds the grinder in?
Can it grind flax seeds?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I HAVEN'T TRIED FLAX, BUT I CAN AND LET YOU KNOW
Utility

Is this grinder suitable for flax seeds?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This mill is suitable for salt, pepper, spices and seeds
is this for 1 grinder or the set?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is one grinder. It worked great for about 4 months. It broke and I was a little bummed. I bought one that uses batteries and it works great and has a bigger reservoir to hold product as well!
Is this grinder suitable for grinding cinnamon sticks to fine powder?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think this product would work for cinnamon sticks, unless you would break them in to very small pieces to begin with. We have only used the mill for peppercorns and it does not grind them in to a fine powder. BUT, maybe we haven't set it fine enough...
how do you clean them before their first use?
A shopper on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Wipe off the external surfaces. Fill with cheap pepper or salt. Grind salt and pepper into trashcan for 20 seconds, drain hopper. Refill with good quality ingredient. Enjoy!
When grinding different strong spices can item be washed and no odor transferred to next spice from previously ground spice?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It can't be washed, but you can clean it occasionally by grinding coarse salt to remove any residue and spice aftertaste
How do I open the grinder to put in the peppercorns?
WILLIAM S on Oct 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Around the middle of the grinder where the brand stamp is... pull out on the ridge above the brand name. In the picture on the website, the red grinder is shown open. Pour in your fresh peppercorns!! We love this grinder...especially for people who can't grip tightly enough for using many traditional grinders.
I had to return my first grinder as it was not outputting any pepper. Company sent me a second one and now won't output any pepper. With all the great reviews,what can I be doing wrong? I've been using pepper grinders for years,why is this one giving me so much trouble?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Washing these grinders and filling with pepper or spice mixes is a great way to make a very sticky slurry of pepper which can only be removed with carefull dissassembly and throrough cleaning. Households with outside kitchens or humid settings can experience this humidity caking more prominently. Unfortunately, if this has happened, the grinder must be reset with a complete cleaning.

Common ways moisture gets into your mills: dispensing ingredient into boiling water, soup or sauce at the stove. The vapor coming of the meal is extensive and condenses readily on the cooler mill surfaces.

Setting these mills on a wet surface (water rings, messy meal preparation, cutting board runoff, etc. can also provide a significant source of water into your mill.

As mentioned before, outdoor use in wet or humid environments should also be avoided.
How do you get water out of it when you try to wash it?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is not recommended to wash these grinders. If you must, there are a couple of options:

1. Air dry. This will take a while and requires the hopper to be open and the unit to be rotated several times to truly dry it out. placing a dry paper towel into the hopper will speed the process.

2. Place in your oven at 150 Degrees F. This dry heat will accelerate the drying process. Alternately, place on a shoe rack in your clothes dryer on Air dry setting if you have this feature.

3. Filling with salt, pepper and dry spices will also absorb water, but will likely clog the unit unless completely dry. As an alternate, white rice can be used. Fill with white rice, shake to bring rice into contact with remaining moisture and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Drain rice. Any remaining rice that cannot be easily removed will be ground up and eliminated by abrasive action of salt/pepper/spices.
My pepper mill broke. Something on the inside broke, so now it will not grind black pepper. Will the manufacture company replace it? or do I just have to buy another one?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: for the price of 20.00 i would just replace it. You will spend more time going back and forth than I think time is worth.
Nuts

Are these suitable for grinding nuts like almonds?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This grinder is for salt, pepper, seeds and spices. Nuts are not recommended
Will it work for coffee if one is not too fussy?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This grinder is for salt, pepper, seeds, and spices. Coffee beans are not recommended.
Dimensions: 2" d x 8 ¾" h , is the height with the handle extended? I have the older model that just fit my spice rack with the handle in the down position. Unfortunately I dropped it and it broke. I would like to replace it.
Tom on Oct 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 8 3/4" is when the handle is extended. When it's not extended, it's 5 1/2".
