What is the difference between CrushGrind ceramic mills and any other ceramic mills?

27th May 2007 21:02
I agree, it is a bit confusing but there are lots of different kinds of ceramic salt and pepper mills out there, some better than others.

We do 2 kinds, the T&G CrushGrind and the William Bounds. I have to say that I would recommend the T&G CrushGrind over the William Bounds. The size of the ceramic mill stone is much bigger and with the CrushGrind you have the great advantage of having no spindle.

CrushGrind itself comes in various different shapes and sizes. The Danish technology is licensed to various manufacturers who put on their own mill bodies. It is a technology that continues to develop. T&G have recently improved their mill stones because they had a few problems with the ratchet only grinding intermittently. They seem to have resolved this but as a result have stopped manufacturing a lot of their upside down mills because the new mill stone did not fit in these mills. So (I hope) new upside mill bodies should be expected to come in in the next year or so.

David Mason are among some of the other manufacturers using ceramic grinding mechanisms but again I would not put them above the CrushGrind because they also still have a spindle and the size of the mill stone is much smaller.

Whilst I cannot ignore some of the teething problems that T&GCrushGrind have had, I would still put them as my "second best" mills. In my view PEUGEOT salt and pepper mills still outrank the ceramic competition.
