Confessions of a Pepper Snob: I Have Bought & Returned No Less Than 7 Pepper Mills – Then I Found This

I can’t take credit for all the delicious meals made in my home (that’s all wifey!) but I can take credit for being a really good sous-chef. We are a home that uses a lot of seasonings and having pepper is a staple for us. Still, I’m a pretty frugal guy so the idea of spending a lot of money on a pepper grinder didn’t seem worth it until I tallied up all the cheap pepper grinders I’ve had to toss out over the years and it was a lot!

If only I had the HexClad HexMill Pepper Grinder from the start, I wouldn’t have wasted so much money on low-quality products that either lack the aesthetic look or the proper functionality to make my life easier in the kitchen. Sometimes you get what you pay for and this is why I recommend splurging on the HexClad grinder:

It’s Extremely Durable

This isn’t just any pepper grinder that you are going to find at your local home goods store. The HexMill Pepper Grinder is a solid two pounds made of anodized aluminum. From the moment I took it out of the packaging, I knew it was created to last. As I cranked this unique burr grinder, the pepper fell out WAY FASTER and effortlessly.

Aesthetically Pleasing Design

Lucky for me, the beautiful monochromatic black and sleek hexagonal design fits perfectly with the aesthetic of my home. Normally, I keep our seasonings tucked away in the cabinet but this powerhouse needs to be seen. I also appreciate that the design comes with a “no mess” bottom cap that gives me the reassurance that I won’t find pepper granules on the countertop after use.

Adjustable Levels For Grind

The pepper grinders I’ve used in the past haven’t given much choice in how fine or coarse you want your pepper to be. With the HexMill Pepper Grinder, you get 10 adjustable settings that will allow you to approach each meal with the right choice. For example, for my eggs, I like to have an ultra-fine powder to season to taste while for my avocado toast, I like coarse granules of pepper for my topping.

You Get A Lifetime Warranty

Most companies that give lifetime warranties are pretty confident in their products and I get the sense that HexClad is one of those companies. I mean, Gordon Ramsy himself stands behind their products, come on. As I tested out the HexMill Pepper Grinder, the feel and the function gave me the confidence that I could depend on it to last a lifetime, so having a lifetime warranty made it even better.

The Takeaway

HexClad was my answer to contributing with confidence in the kitchen. I plan to get my hands on some of their other high-quality cookware to unleash my potential in the kitchen. If you’re like me and want to maintain your staple seasonings like pepper in a way that will last, the HexMill Pepper Grinder is for you. Get out there and get your hands on the next available one.
