Grinds Beautifully: A William Bounds Acrylic Peppermill Review
Dec 26, 2011
I've used an inexpensive oak pepper mill with salt shaker for more years than I care to admit. As a chef, I prefer freshly ground pepper and decided to purchase the William Bounds acrylic peppermill mill from Williams Sonoma as a replacement and use with my salt keeper in the kitchen.
The William Bounds acrylic peppermill, made in the US, easily grinds the peppercorns by cranking the metal handle. The grind can be adjusted between fine, medium, and course by twisting a metal dial just below the crank to the desired setting. The ceramic grinder, designed to never rust or wear out, produces a consistent grind. A matching salt mill is available; however there isn't a companion salt shaker.
Refilling the peppermill requires the removal of a spherical nut. The crank then lifts off to reveal the storage cavity for filling. Return the crank into position and secure with the spherical nut when done. I've done this several times and have never had a problem with the peppermill coming apart.
The William Bounds peppermill uses a traditional shape with high quality contemporary materials to create a pleasing modern appearance. Plus I typically use a five peppercorn blend which adds to the visual appeal. If you're looking for an attractive peppermill with the quality to last, the William Bounds peppermill is definitely worthy of consideration.
PROS: Traditional shape with contemporary materials Grinder stays sharp Simple to use
CONS: No matching salt shaker, only a salt mill option
