There is nothing as discouraging as a weak pepper mill. Or should I say, there is nothing as satisfying as a good one. The feel in your hands, the sound of a coarse crunch. There are many good pepper mills, of course, but when the good people at Cook’s Illustrated recommended The Magnum as the best of the best, I tried it and was converted. Never mind that it sounds like a vibrator. It is a simple design, efficient and wonderful. I have the bigger model, and if I had to do it again, the small one would do just fine.
Either way, Magnum Force is the way to go.
And yes, that’s what she said.
