My guests are always amazed by the pepper-milling power of the pepper mill I use at work. In this completely unscientific study, I will show you why it's the best. Although I only have it going up against one other mill, keep in mind I used to work at Williams-Sonoma and I know all about pepper mills. I've been using this pepper mill for years - I probably use it 20-35 times a night, five nights a week, and at home, and I still love it. You will, too. I promise.
This pepper came from the medium grind setting on a $60 pepper mill:
And from my favorite $25 Magnum pepper mill:
Pictures were taken from the same distance, of course. Sur La Table sells this pepper mill for $40, but it can be purchased at most restaurant supply stores for $25. In Columbus, you can try Wasserstrom (2777 Silver Drive) or Polster (585 S. High St) Restaurant Supply stores. You can even purchase a handy holster like I have for another $13.
