Q Hi… I’m looking for a new pepper mill. My number one priority is to get a mill that can grind the maximum volume of pepper in the shortest amount of time. I often cook in large batches and with my existing battery powered grinder, I can be standing there with the buttom depressed for several minutes to get the volume of pepper I need. Next priority would be a grinder that can handle both small and large peppercorns, but not at the expense of priority one. What would you recommend?
A Thanks for your email .. Whilst I don’t have information on the exact volume of pepper output, the electric pepper mill with the best reputation is the Peugeot Elis Sense Pepper Mill which is touch operated so you won’t be depressing any buttom. It is an exceptionally good mill. It grinds very well and easily but is not sold as having an unusually high volume output. It takes standard size peppercorns, not the large ones which tend to block the grinder chambers of mills as they struggle to drop down easily. This would give an intermittent grind so I would watch using the big corns if you want fast output in any mill.
