This arrived well-packaged and it is a beautiful piece. The removable top is very loose and comes off very easily, so we have to be careful not to pick it up by the top or else we end up with pepper scattered all over the place. Other than that, its a really lovely centerpiece on our table.

Wonderful and beautifully crafted item! Works amazing and it's tons of fun to grind my own coffee! Excellent customer service and communication, lightning fast shipping, it was finished and arrived a lot sooner than I had anticipated! Thanks a ton!!

About

Portland Peppermill Company

After five years of running a successful but uninspired used consumer electronics business, I decided it was time to pursue something more meaningful. I closed the business, sold my belongings, and moved to Hawaii. There I discovered a bottomless well of inspiration. I began working with the trees, making wooden bowls on a lathe. A few years later I found myself living in Portland, Oregon, turning wood full time from my home studio. At first focusing on creating art pieces using rare wood and stone, I began to recognize the inherent beauty of simple forms, and felt inspired to share this. I wanted to create something that was more accessible for people than lavish art pieces. I wanted my creations to be both beautiful and extremely usefu

Form married function & the Portland Peppermill Company was born.

Nowadays, with manufacturing being outsourced to the lowest bidder, it seems as though profits are typically the main concern, and quality often falls by the wayside. This contributes to our tendencies as a throwaway culture, and lowers our standards of what we’ve come to expect from things. At most stores, it is all too common to find disposable plastic grinders. We can do better. Portland Peppermill Company was founded upon the mission of creating quality, lasting mills that contribute to a more sustainable way of living.

I am dedicated to bringing back the disappearing art of handmade craftsmanship. Every piece I create receives my undivided attention when it comes to form, function and quality. It brings me joy to create functional art pieces that will be well loved and well used & that will last for generations.
