poofy review Swissmar Uma 6 Inch Pepper Mill

Swissmar Uma 6 Inch Pepper Mill

It is easy to get a bit snobby when it comes to pepper mills, since there are some really good looking highly functional ones available. If you want to spend twenty or thirty dollars more than this one costs, there are plenty of options. My favorite is Cole and Mason H59401G Derwent Precision Gourmet Pepper Mill. It's high tech and works perfectly, and it looks stylish.

This one is plastic and inexpensive looking and yet, it does what a pepper mill should. You can adjust the coarseness of the pepper easily. I find that you can indeed get exactly the grind you want from the finest to the most course. But the really good feature of this is that it holds an entire bottle of peppercorns. Also, and this is extra helpful, the grinder is on the top, so you don't get flakes of pepper on the table underneath this.

Having a pepper mill is fast becoming a necessity, for chefs and those of us who simply can appreciate the fact that freshly ground pepper simply tastes better on food than pre-ground. For salads, having a fairly course grade of ground pepper really can enhance the greens, and I love my Ceasar Salads. I either want freshly ground pepper on them, or none at all.

I use this one to grind my flaxseeds before adding them to my morning oatmeal, and don't feel that I need an expensive pepper mill for that job. I simply grind the flax onto the oatmeal. This works great for that. I keep this in the fridge to keep the flaxseeds fresh.

This is an inexpensive version of a pepper mill, but it grinds the pepper, or flax in my case, and does it easily. I actually think it looks pretty cute, at least for the kitchen, if not for the dining room. If you don't need a fancy pepper mill, or won't be using one often enough to justify buying a more expensive one, this one is perfectly fine. I can't promise it will last for years, but with careful handling, it might. There is a ten year warranty on the mechanism. I can recommend this.

  1. I enjoyed the Swissmar Uma Pepper Mill right out of the box because it came with peppercorns! This was a nice surprise. I like the size and the silicone red color/texture of the top of the mill. The bottom part is plastic, but it seems very durable. You just turn the little knob marked "P" to choose if you want fine or coarse pepper. It works like a charm and looks great on my counter. I think I'll order the salt mill to go with it. Plus, you can't go wrong with the 10 year warranty. A great product.

  2. fresh ground pepper really does taste better, and Swissmar makes a nice sized easy hold very attractive looking pepper mill to help out with your pepper mill needs, not too large or too small, easy to hold and the sticker on the side gives instructions on the workings, counter twisting is what this one does, its not a difficult twist and it gives a nice small grind of the pepper which i like, and i am pleased to add it to my kitchen. we will have many lovely dinners together. highly recommend.

  3. This is a really nice pepper mill for the dinner table. It has a nontraditional design, and will fit in nicely with a modern aesthetic. Because the opening is at the top, it won't leave pepper all over the table after using it. More importantly, the grind is even and efficient, meaning a good amount of pepper will come out with each twist. It is rather small, however, so you might want a larger, taller pepper mill if you cook a lot and have the room in the kitchen.

    This is a large capacity pepper mill suitable for kitchen or table use. It is approximately 5" tall and 2" in diameter at the base, and holds approximately 1/2 cup of pepper corns. The reservoir is clear plastic and the top is red plastic. There is a metal band around the middle which secures the top to the base. The grinding mechanism is white ceramic and has a 10 year warranty. A plastic knob at the top embossed with the letter "P" allows you to adjust the coarseness of the grind. The entire piece is manufactured in China by Galic Industries.

    It took me a few minutes to figure out how to get the mill started. It ships with the adjustor knob closed up tight. After you loosen the knob a little, things begin to flow. The key to remember when using the mill is that you hold the silver band tight and turn the red top to grind while holding the entire mill upside down, or turn the silver band together with the red top to open the mill to add more pepper corns. Since the top of the reservoir is a bit narrow, you'll probably find some sort of funnel useful for filling--it's hard to simply pour more pepper corns in. As noted on the label, the ceramic mechanism will not rust or corrode with use. The transparent reservoir is a nice touch since you can easily see if you're running low on pepper corns, or if you grind other spices, you can tell at a glance exactly what is in the reservoir rather than resorting to guess or labels. Overall, this device is not fancy, but it does the job well.

  5. I like this pepper mill for several reasons. The first is that it's cheap. Buying this pepper mill will definitely not break the bank.

    Also, to grind pepper, you turn it upside-down and then store the mill with the "bottom" pointing up. This means that you won't have stray pepper fragments everywhere.

    A big plus is that this is the most adjustable pepper mill I've ever used. You can easily adjust this mill to provide a very fine and even grind. Most other mills I've used product an uneven grind that tends to be on the more chunky size. It's easy to adjust the Swissmar pepper mill. Also, the adjustment knob is very easy to grip.

    The final plus about this product is that it's good looking from a design perspective. Obviously, that's subjective, but I like the clean lines of the product.

    Oh, and it comes with peppercorns, although my mill was only about 2/3rds full upon arrival. Excellent product, excellent price, 5 stars.

  6. What a great pepper mill!

    I have another pepper mill which sits on a base. To use it, I need to remove the bottom base and then when done, I put the base back on. This pepper mill is so much easier to use. The pepper comes out from the top so when I want some delicious, freshly cracked pepper, I just turn it over and twist. When I'm done, I just simply put it back on it's bottom. There are no little loose black pepper pieces all over the place. Very clean operation. I love this!

    I keep this one on the table as it's small and looks attractive.

    It comes with some pepper, which tasted nice and fresh on my eggs. It's easy to fill, too - just twist the top off.

    I'm able to change the grind very easily. There is a little nob on top which turns to make a finer or coarser grind. My mom with her arthritic hands can easily use this so it's a winner in our house!

  8. I have several pepper grinders - I am a fan of different varieties of pepper and keep several on hand at all times.
    This grinder keeps the counter clean as the ground pepper is delivered from the top instead of the bottom.
    The grind is even and rapid without the larger chunks that are often produced in other grinders.
    The fine-to-coarse adjustment is easily fixed without a lot of fiddling and the adjustment know is easy to hold for my arthritic hands.

    All in all this works exactly as described.
