All of the Pepper Mills shown on this site, utilize the CrushGrind ceramic grinding mechanism. The mechanism is ideal for grinding Pepper, Salt, and dry Spices. The manufacturer of CrushGrind, places a 25 year unlimited warranty on the mechanism. The grinding mechanism will likely last a lifetime. The CrushGrind company tested the mechanism by grinding 50 Kg (110 lbs.) of Pepper, and 50 Kg (110 lbs.) of Salt. This is equivalent of 200 years of "Normal Household Use". Inspections conducted after the test showed "no significant wear" in the mechanism. The CrushGrind mechanism has an Gray adjustment knob on the bottom. Turn this knob clockwise to decrease coarseness, and counterclockwise to increase coarseness. Once the coarseness is chosen, refilling the Pepper Mill does not require additional readjustment.
