I bought myself a new pepper grinder at Crate & Barrel a few weeks back because mine was terrible. (I'd made the mistake of buying a nice-looking-but-not-so-functional pepper mill from Martha Stewart's line at Kmart.) I cannot tell you how lovely it is to have a nice, working pepper grinder. There are some things in life on which it is worth spending a few extra dollars and apparently pepper mills are on the list. I also love the glossy sheen of the white Peugeot model I chose. Simple pleasures, right?
