By far the best price is here http://store.steamykitchen.com/detail/170008
Only caveat is, you have to buy 2, but then again, is that be a bad thing?

Apply coupon code C88456 in cart. It takes $50 off $100 orders, so your price should be $49.99 + like $5.50 s/h for 2 :)

Cheers :)

P.S I bought from them before and they just emailed me the code.

Did you have to add some filler item to get it over 100? what did you add?

Nope. Two 49.99 items work.

To the OP, thanks for posting this! I'd been wanting one of those pepper mills for a little while now.

I tried so hard to order something else in the 50-70 dollar range from that site. Had to come back to two pepper mills in the end.

So did someone get two for $25, and only need one? If so, I'll take one. PM me please.

I've always wanted one of these.

Are we going to see a few of these pop up on B/S/T? :whistling:

I'm interested in buying one if any of you are interested in selling one.

However, if everyone wants to keep their two, I'm willing to go in with someone to buy one.

Feel free to PM me.

The thing is, it's not coming out to $25 per :(
It's $55 total since 5.50 for shipping, so it comes down to $28 or so for each and then to ship it over, additional $5-8 depending on a location. This however, would a great way to make friends outside the USA ;)

Well the coupon is pretty limited, but the site has an ice cream maker, silpats, and tart pans that I want. The coupon applies to those, so I may go for a second round. It'd end up 10 bucks cheaper than Amazon, so I'm trying to see if that 10 bucks is worth the extra week of wait time for the items to arrive.

That's the key I think. Many of the items are not even a great buy due to their pricing & coupon restrictions, however, few gems do exist :)

The immersion blender ($30, $1 more than amazon) might help some push up their carts: http://store.steamykitchen.com/detail/377256/smartstick-hand-blender-green-by-cuisinart

The discount did not apply for me when I had only the two, so I picked up a set of kuhn rikon peelers (3). A buck or so more expensive than amazon but whatever. Maybe its just that I clicked something weird but thats okay, I can always use peelers. Thanks for the deal. I'll try to see what else I can buy on that site since its a good coupon. Any other suggestions of stuff? Anyone know how that fish spatula is compared to well reviewed ones like the wusthof?

I want to buy a good set of tongs too but they don't have the Rosle ones (recommended by Theory in his other thread showing off his kit)...anyone try the OXO good grip ones? Usually oxo has decent stuff I find but never played with most of them.

The cart worked fine for me. I put the coupon in, and it didn't apply because my total was at 99.98 or something, so I put in my zip code and it added tax and shipping. Bam-$56.

You guys use the all stainless ones or the ones with the nonstick tips?

stainless.. not sure where non-stick ones would be of benefit.

slowtyper
02-15-2012, 12:24 AM
I wish I shopped around before I ordered 2 of the pepper mills. I get very anxious around deals and always check out as fast as I can when its a super good deal in case they fix a mistake or stock runs out.....haha

Bad habit!

Putting together another order because I need a bunch of stuff anyays like tongs, microplane, ....well we'll see what I can convince myself I "need".

Not sure if the code will work twice for the same address though

I have two OXO locking tongs (http://www.amazon.com/OXO-Grips-9-Inch-Locking-Tongs/dp/B0000CDVD8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1329284113&sr=8-2) and love them. Both of mine have "nylon heads" (hard plastic), which supposedly makes safer to use on nonstick pots/pans. I use them all the time. I checked out some tongs by Rosle (far more expensive) and didn't like them nearly as much. Good tongs are invaluable.

Yup, only benefit I can think of is if you are using a cooking surface you don't want to scratch (Le Creuset, nonstick, etc) and you want to be super careful. Both the stainless and nylon work well.

Hey, I've PMed Eamon (Burke Cutlery) for his spare Magnum. But if he already sold it on, or its inconvenient to ship it all the way to Singapore, would be happy to take a spare off another member's hands if paypal works for you and you're happy to help ship it to Singapore!

biggest issue is that shipping outside usa/canada with tracking will likely cost more than the actual pepper mill. crazy:(

This seems like a really good deal.

I have been looking at getting a pepper mill and have read about this one being the best. How do the Vic Firth ones compare? (they have them at the local grocery store).

I have also been looking to get an egg poacher. Trying to decide between the Demeyere Resto (same price as other places) and the Norpro Krona (a little more expensive). Leaning towards the Norpro since it is fully stainless steel, although it looks like I might be able to take the nonstick insert out and just use the stainless cup.

There was a previous thread re. pepper mills that influenced me to buy a Unicorn Magnum pepper mill and then a sampler pack of peppercorns from Pepper Passion really enjoy using the Magnum mill and the tasting the variety of peppers. :thumbsup:
However, when my son and daughter came home for the holidays they were concerned seeing 7 packs of peppercorns. They know their dad accumulates stuff but thought this may be different. :eek2:

Thank for this! I'm waiting on that mill. My current wood one is beyond shite... Size consistency of the ground pepper emerging from the mill ranges from 2 microns to 3/4 of a peppercorn. I've tried tweaking it to control size but it is just bleah.

OK I just bought a Unicorn last night (thanks slowtyper) and it is seriously going to change my life. I use a LOT of pepper when I cook and the Magnum Plus is going to save me so much time and effort when making Bolognese, chili, gumbo, jambalaya, etouffee, soups, curries and even Caesar salad dressing.

Wow, what a great site! I love pepper, and as such, I use a ton of it.

Haven't pulled the trigger on a Unicorn yet, so I guess I can still entertain the idea of a limited edition mill from Pepper Passion in desert ironwood (only $800 for a salt/pepper set). :)

Thanks for the link and what you use. I figured the KKF hive mind would have some good advice on peppercorns. Much appreciated.

Eamon Burke
04-25-2012, 06:07 PM
Yeah, that guy was really nice too. He makes those mills himself, IIRC. I didn't get any pepper from him yet because I haven't run out of the Tellicherry I already have yet.

Ya, those are top of the line peppercorns/mills. I still got about a pound left of tellicherry and sarawak, so it'll last me for quite a while.

Been using mine alot, and it takes 6oz pepper at a time, which is very nice.

I have used both the tellicherry from Penzeys and the one from pepper-passion (and the Costco as well...)
I'd say in declining order of quality:
Pepper-passion
Penzeys
Costco

But i'm not sure the difference between Pepper-passion and Penzeys valids ordering just for that. I got Pepper-passions sample box and it is great trying to mix and test all those fun peppers that are not available elsewhere.

Try the Tellicherry from http://www.pepper-passion.com/, it makes the stuff Penzey's sells seem bland.

apicius9
04-29-2012, 01:18 AM
Gotta try that but then I need another mill first... As a European I actualy use more white than black pepper. Seems to be more common over there than here. A variety pack sounds like a great idea, but I have to go through the rest of my Penzey's bag first...
