Jesper Stainless Steel Salt or Pepper Mill, 4.4”h

The Danes have been creating some of the most modern and memorable mill designs since the 1950s. The Jesper Mill continues the tradition. The look is simple, clean, and timeless. The Jesper Stainless Steel Mill is suitable for the kitchen or the dining room.

This is the 4.4"h Jesper Stainless Steel Mill. Sold individually or as a set. It's also available in a larger 6.6"h size.

The Jesper can be used to grind Salt or Pepper. In order to keep track of what you’re grinding, there’s a little round magnetic disk recessed in the top of the mill. One side of the disk is engraved with an S and the other side with a P. Buy two if you want to create a set.

You can easily flip the disk from one side to the other based upon what you’re grinding. That really helps if you buy the set. It’s also helpful if you want to play jokes on your kids by flipping the top to S when there is pepper inside. :-D

The Jespers (like all of our mills) are outfitted with the patented CrushGrind mechanism. It’s our favorite. (Yes, we have a favorite grinding mechanism! How geeky!)

The coarseness of the grind is fully adjustable using the dial on the bottom. To fill the mill, just pull off the top and pour in peppercorns or salt. Our signature Tellicherry Peppercorns and Flaky Icelandic Sea Salt, perhaps?

These mills feel solid and substantial in hand. And they clean up easily with a little soap and water. The Danes have done it again with this design. Great Danes!

Jesper Stainless Steel Pepper Mill, 6.6”(H)

After decades of using poorly designed and constructed pepper mills that couldn’t deliver on promises of quality grinding mechanisms and general durability, with hesitation, I took a chance on the Reluctant Trading Experiment Jesper, an attractive 6.6”(H) stainless steel unit. I didn’t believe that it would be significantly better than my previous pepper mill purchases, but bought based on Scott’s (Reluctant Trading Experiment proprietor) assurance that the ceramic crush/grind mechanism was the best designed and most dependable available and that he would do all within his power to guarantee my satisfaction.

Within a couple of days, I was in possession of a pepper grinder unlike any that I had ever owned. When filled with Reluctant Trading tellicherry peppercorns, it consistently delivers an accurate grind from fine to course, is the perfect size for both kitchen and dinning room, and holds a quantity of peppercorns sufficient to make frequent refilling unnecessary. It also has undeniable visual appeal and is of efficient ergonomic design. This is the one for which I’ve searched for so long. I’ll be buying two additional grinders of this type: one for Icelandic sea salt and one to hold as a spare.

I recommend that you treat yourself, a family member or friend to this marvelous bit of kitchen kit. You and/or they will be delighted...and don’t forget to include the tellicherry peppercorns and Icelandic sea salt.
