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.
