Salt and Pepper grinders and shakers
So what are the secrets to choosing the best pepper grinder, anyways? Grinding Mechanism. The grinding mechanism isn’t referring to the body of the whole grinder but rather the actual disc at the base of the salt or pepper mill where all of the grinding magic happens. Salt and Pepper mills don’t use blades to chop the peppercorns but rather burrs to crush them up into smaller pieces. If it isn’t made with stainless steel or ceramic, then you don’t want it: plastic and nylon won’t hold up for very long.
