Knob Spice Grinder Umbra, 7"h


Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store"

The saying goes, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen."

Fortunately, the designers of our Knob Spice mill not only withstood the heat, they spent a lot of time staring at the shape of the knobs on the oven. It was apparently the shape of an oven knob that inspired the Umbra Shift design team for these mills.

The Knob Spice mill is crafted from beechwood and fitted with a Danish CrushGrind ceramic mechanism. It handles salt, peppercorns or spices. The grind setting is fully adjustable from coarse to fine.

The mill rests on a detached, wooden base for catching stray spices. The base comes in handy as a pinch pot too. (See the photos.)

To load, simply hold the bottom of the mill with one hand and pull the knob top straight up and off.

The Knob Spice grinder comes nicely boxed for gift giving.

Grind coarse salt to help clean out oils from spices. For a more thorough cleaning, unscrew gray dial on bottom, remove the ceramic cone and soak in hot water. Make sure the cone is completely dry (24 hours) prior to reattaching to mill.

Do not substitute other peppercorn or salt brands in place of Reluctant because you know I’ll find out. Do not pass go.
