Do You Have A Pepper Mill In Your Pocket?

One recent trend I simply can't abide is the giant restaurant pepper mill. I dunno what brain surgeon came up with this practice, but for the pepper lover, nothing is more of a PITA than having to wait while some poor waitron grinds on and on, impatiently waiting for you to tell them to stop.  The alternatives to this ghastly ritual are crappy pepper packets, preground pepper put into a salt shaker or going without entirely.  Well, those last two options are actually the same since pepper won't fit out the smaller holes of the salt shaker. Well, thanks to the internetz, I no longer have to suffer in silence, while looking around for a good source of peppercorns, I found this miniature peppermill over at Pepper Passion - a site dedicated to all things pepper.
So the next time you see me I'll have one of these little numbers in my pocket, though I may also be happy to see you.

  1. Thank you for the mention. About the time you published this we also received some Pocket-Peppermills with ceramic mechanisms so they may now also be used for sea-salt. It is a very popular product for us.

    We also launched our re-designed web site www.pepper-passion.com on October 15, 2012. Hope you like it.
