Magnus Salt or Pepper Mill Porcelain - Medium 7.6"h
Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store"
While Divakar’s Organic Tellicherry Peppercorns are so extraordinarily good that you’ll be tempted to eat them whole, Divakar does not recommend it. Therefore, you will need a grinder.
I spent the better part of a year looking for one that would live up to Divakar’s signature pepper. I wanted something beautiful, adjustable, consistent and precise. Something that would grind salt and other spices too.
After trying one mediocre grinder after the next, I stumbled on the Magnus Mill. A gorgeous, minimal, modern spice mill designed and manufactured by one of the nicest guys this side of the Kalixälven River in Sweden, Magnus Lundström.
Magnus designed the mill with beautiful, clean lines. A timeless, unique design. He constructs each one painstakingly by hand in the States. The entire mill is crafted of American Black Walnut with a top-notch durable hard oil finish. This is a solid mill with just the right amount of heft.
I found it easy to load the peppercorns. (This same mill grinds salt equally well.) I set the adjustable grind dial (on the bottom) to medium coarseness. I picked up the mill with my left hand and twisted the top with my right.
And then I had my holy cow moment (and yes, I mean that literally since we’re dealing with Indian peppercorns). Pepper didn’t just drop from the bottom. It rained from the bottom. No, I’m not kidding, it rained pepper.
Just as a Porsche owner cannot accurately describe the feeling of taking S curves at white knuckle speeds, I cannot accurately explain the feeling of grinding whole peppercorns over steak and pasta with the Magnus Mill. Technically, the mill employs the best available CrushGrind ceramic mechanism in the world. Magnus imports them from Denmark.
How satisfying is it to use the Magnus Mill? Let’s just say that if you took an MRI of my head while grinding pepper or salt, I am highly confident that the pleasure center in my brain would be lit up like a Christmas tree.

I purchased these grinders to use in my new home. They have such an architectural sense to them, I am over the moon. When my son in law saw them, he fell in love with them too but when he discovered the price, decided he would not buy them for his own home. He and my daughter are young with young children so their money goes toward the more practical aspects of life. He will be so surprised at Christmas to discover I bought him two of these grinders as well. I could not be more pleased with this product!
If you think online shopping is boring and sterile, you haven't tried the Reluctant Trading Experiment. Products of excellent quality AND high style. GREAT customer service as well. For eons, I've been looking for well crafted, workhorse salt and pepper mills - that also look hip. I was thrilled to find them here. I use the large size all-walnut for pepper and the mid-size porcelain for salt. LOTS of compliments from friends and family whenever they pitch in to help cook. THANKS!
Purchased the large and medium. These 2 grinders are the most beautiful I have ever seen. I don't like a lot of clutter on my countertop, so the few items I do have need to be standouts and these grinders are definitely that! I love them so much I am purchasing another pair to give as a Christmas present.

I've used everything from mallet to electric coffee bean grinder to get decent coarseness for pepper. This mill does it and has good flow, even with larger Tellicherry, Sweet!
