Do You Own a Pepper Grinder?

Using a pepper grinder greatly improves one's seasoning skills. Plus it's fun to play server and ask guests if they'd like freshly ground pepper on their salads or pasta. Do you own this old-school gadget?

Yes, but after I bought it never seemed to use it.

I do have a really big one, and whenever my husband and I use it, we say "Would you like some fresh-a pepper?" (like that guy I wonder if it will ever stop being funny :P I grind almost all my spices before using them.

A few years ago, when we were setting up house, we made a trip to our local kitchen store and they recommended a stainless steel pepper mill and a salt grinder--and we didn't blink twice at the $80 price tag on each, because we absolutely trust our kitchen store owners; they've proven to be worth their weight in gold! (I love our s&p grinders; they're fantastic, as promised--and guaranteed for life.)

Yeah, as well as one for nutmeg, and another one for coriander (I think you guys call it cilantro) seeds. Would use one for salt, though I use either kosher salt or sea salt flakes.

Yep, we got one for free from the real estate company when we bought our house. It was sort of a strange gift, but I do use it all the time.
