OXO Good Grips Pepper Grinder Review


The OXO Good Grips Pepper Grinder features a clear body and the recognizable OXO black rubber bottom that's easy to, yes, grip. Users love the ease of loading in the pepper, the easy-to-adjust grind (although some would prefer greater variance between the settings), and the volume of pepper that comes out.
As cheap pepper grinders go, write consumers in Oxo Good Grips Pepper Mill reviews, this one is about as good as it gets. What makes people wax rhapsodic about a lowly kitchen gadget? All the critical qualities that users want in a pepper mill are contained in this small package. A review on Zappo's points to the styling and ease of use (pick up, turn over, twist the bottom). At Crate & Barrel, users applaud the absence of a center shank, so refilling the chamber is a no-mess task. Reviews on Amazon are uniformly laudatory, praising the construction, the size, the ease of changing the grind, and the effortless grinding of the peppercorns. For a kitchen tool that's in high demand by cooks and diners, user-friendliness is key, and that's the defining characteristic of the Oxo Good Grips Pepper Mill (starting at $15, Amazon). This low-cost pepper mill features the traditional Oxo black rubber grip, which makes it easy to hold, particularly with wet hands. The Oxo Good Grips Pepper Mill has five easily discernible settings for the coarseness of the grind, and changing from one to another requires just a simple twist of a rubber ring. The pepper comes out of the top, rather than the bottom, so there's no little mess of pepper left on the counter. The Oxo Good Grips has a wide opening for refilling that's accessible by unscrewing the bottom, and the acrylic body makes it easy to see when it's time to refill. Oxo Good Grips Pepper Mill reviews note that one twist yields enough pepper to spice up a pot of soup or stew. The raves for the Oxo Good Grips Pepper Mill are so extensive that the low cost might seem like a bonus. This model does have some drawbacks however, and it's not quite as perfect as some Oxo Good Grips Pepper Mill reviews suggest. The fine grind is not as fine as what you get with a more expensive pepper grinder, nor is it quite as consistent as it should be. We also read a few reports about the bottom falling off. But on the whole, this is the best cheap pepper grinder we could find.
