Jamie Oliver pepper mill at dstore for $24

25 January 2011

Am listing this because its hard to find decent pepper grinders and mostly when you do they are stupidly priced. This was being sold at $29 by dstore (dont believe the list price) and is around that and a bit more at other stores. Its only there for 24 hours so if you want one keep that in mind if your chasing one.

In my humble opinion $24 is cheap enough for a pepper grinder and being jamie oliver branded you figure its going to work (although probably in a cheesy manner).

    The salt one is the same price. Don't ya love the look on his face in the last shot - 'If I just do this stupid photo shoot I can make 20 squids on each set to keep me in the manner to which I have become accustomed mwa hah hah. Suckers.' I like his cooking, but hate his overpriced cookware and tarty ways. Still, they look like they might be ok. Though note there are two different designs in the photo's - one fills only a tube inside, the other fills the whole body - makes you wonder if they have it right now - and maybe that's why they're reduced so much? I've tried a few. The ball ones with squeeze handles on top clog up (particularly the salt one), although they are single handed. I got some with all the screws on the bottom, but all that means is it all comes off and dumps in your cooking!

    Its hard to get one that works properly. I've only ever stuck to the twist top ones and have a cheapie at the moment that looks pretty ordinary but actually works (until you get down to the peppercorns that are too large to slide into the burrs.

    I've had two of these Peugeot "Hostellerie" mills for years - one pepper, one salt. Expensive and a little fiddly to fill, but they work. http://www.broadwaypanhandler.com/broadway/assets/product_images/Peugeot_hostelbrn.jpg

    I actually was unaware that something so fundamental was missing from my life...:D Although then again, not so sure I want to put on my food something black that's come out of the bottom of anything, no matter how cute....:eek:

What do you think?
