Black 9-in. Unicorn Magnum Plus Pepper Mill
Many of our authorities thought this 9" tall, contemporary black pepper mill was top notch- it met all our criteria: a comfortable grip, a grind that is easily adjustable, and a nut at the base that i...; See complete description »

I owned 2 other pepper mills before I bought this one due to a recommendation by America's Test Kitchen. It is everything they said it was. It leaves every other pepper mill I own in the dust. Love it!!3 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
I put off making this purchase for years...getting by with a pepper mill purchased in 1985 which spewed large chunks of peppercorns at will!
This is a fantastic pepper mill, easy to use, easy to fill and easy to clean.
This is a great pepper mill - there is a design flaw in the loading hatch (on the side where your hand rests) that can cause it to open and peppercorns to fly everywhere. Which is frustrating on two levels - one it's a mess and a pain - two you feel pretty dumb when it happens.
But holy mother does this thing work. It's a tad pricey and has none of the food geek plusses of great semi-traditionalist design but this thing grinds high volume with little effort and just is a total pleasure to use (if you don't spray peppercorns all over everything). One crank equals 6 or 7 from my old very pretty stainless steel thing. The mill is slightly over priced but well worth it. I use this more than any peppermill I have owned simply because you get a good easy result every time that you can count on.
It's a grind
Best working pepper mill I have ever used!! Holds lots of pepper corns, adjusts easily, produces huge amounts of fresh ground pepper!!!!3 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
This pepper mill is the best I have used. Only half turn of the screw is enough to put out a large amount of pepper. Moreover, the storage container is huge and extremly easy to fill, just turn the mill on its side, twist to open the storage compartment, and fill.3 of 3 users found this helpful.

Lives up to the hype
I got this mill when it was on sale, and it was a screaming deal! I have wanted one since reading Gear for Your Kitchen by Alton Brown, and boy does it live up to the hype. This thing is consistent, doesn't hang up on peppercorns, easy to load and clean, and throws out so much pepper it feels like it continues after you stop turning it. It can still squeek out a small amount, though, if that's what you need. Very glad I got it.3 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
If you want (and are willing to pay for) a top notch grinder then look no further. Grinder is easy to load, holds lots of peppercorns, and can turn out a huge pile of pepper in no time. Grind is easy to adjust via a small screw in the base. This is a serious, hard-working peppermill.3 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
This is probably the best pepper mill there is for the kitchen. I've used other brands and thought Peugeot had the best mechanism and grind quality, but they always fell short on output. The Magnum Plus has great grind quality, easy grind size adjustment that stays even, and really puts out at least twice as much pepper per turn thanks to its extra large grinding mechanism. It is easy to clean and with its large, black plastic body its more a cooking tool than a dinner table accessory, so if you use a pepper mill at the table, you may want to have a fancier-looking one just for that.3 of 3 users found this helpful.

This beautifully styled pepper mill delivers the best
milled pepper. It is so easy to adjust and has so many
positions! It is splendid! While very well syled, it may
not be the trendiest, but for those interstested in best results, this is the one!
Superior Grinding Mechanism
I find it stunning how many poor-grinding pepper mills there are in today's market., This includes many that are FAR more expensive!
This Unicorn Magnum's grinder deserves every bit of the adulation it regularly receives. With ease and no fuss it produces the varying grinds an excellent pepper mill should.
Long use has shown this to be a purchase I'll never regret.
After buying a few different kinds of mills I decided to try this one because the others were so inefficient (and hard on my arthritic hand). These mills are great and it only takes 1 - 2 turns to get more than enough pepper! I bought 2 and am very glad I did. My other ones are going into the garage sale box!
My previous experience with pepper grinders has been limited & not very favorable, so I decided to try this one since it was highly recommended by Cooks Illustrated. It is a bit difficult for me to turn, so I found that if I back turn just a bit & then start grinding it becomes easier. I read that some people have trouble with the peppercorns falling out since the fill door turns the same way as grinding the pepper. Yes, that could happen, but I have never had that problem. Just be careful. The ground pepper comes out so rapidly that you don't need to turn much to get all you want, & it tastes so much better than previously ground pepper. My only suggestion would be to have numbers printed on the adjustment so that you could change settings & always know where to set it for each grind that you desire.3 of 5 users found this helpful.

A peppermill that REALLY works!
I gave up on the rabbit ear peppermills when the last one broke after a very short time. Other peppermills, I had already given up on. After reading in forums about different ones, I decided to give this one a try. It is a little pricey but well worth it if it works correctly. So far, it has been fine. It takes very little effort to use and easy to fill. I would recommend this one.3 of 5 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
This pepper mill is very easy to load and very easy to use! Not the best looking
but best operating.
a practical compromise from the more decorative and expensive peppermills and what does the job with ease because of the side load feature and the adjustable grind..2 of 2 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
I've gone through 3 pepper grinders that were the most expensive ones sold at Walmart or Target. All of those looked good, but never seemed to work properly, made obnoxious squeaking noises or broke after a year.
I will admit, I had high hopes for this grinder. When it showed up I was initially disappointed. I was surprised to find out that it was plastic. I was originally shopping for some expensive cookware. Buying this was done with an
Love the prolific output of this device. I bought it on Cooks Illustrated's recommendation and am not disappointed.2 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
Unicorn Magnum Plus Pepper Mill (-in.)
This is an excellent pepper mill with easy to change grind settings. The only minor drawback is that placing the pepper into the mill involves making a funnel out of paper or use of a regular funnel to put the pepper into the mill. However, this minor drawback is offset by its excellent operation.2 of 2 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
I chose this based on reviews in Cooks Illustrated and Cuisine at Home. I love it, you can change from a fine to coarse grind and it holds a lot of pepper. Definitely worth the money.2 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
The one and only
Fresh cracked pepper is just fine on salads, meats, mac and cheese and the list goes on. But does your pepper grinder issue a small quantities of dark dust rather than a good sprinkle of tasty little pieces of pepper? Is it smooth to turn in order to work?
