    Let us know how it holds up in about 3-6months and I'm assuming you pull the 2 ears down to ground dem peppers up?

    I'm looking for something to grind dried habaneros and the mortar pestle is not doing the job that I want.

    You squeeze the handles together like one of those old grip strengthener handles. (only pointed with the flame end down like it sits in the pic)

    I bought a small coffee grinder, the kind with the whirling blades just to grind dried peppers. Works fast.

    I paid a lot of $$ for it, but the grinder at this Amazon link is awesome. The only flaw is that the "loading gate" comes open when grinding sometimes.

    I learned about it on this board and am so glad I forked over the $$ for it.

    This baby showers pepper like crazy with little effort.

    Here is the homepage for the dealer: http://www.peppergun.com/products/magnum_plus.html

    "The top of our line. “Best… a clear winner, widest range of grinds, super large capacity and blinding speed” says Cook’s Illustrated in giving us their highest rating. The features of the Magnum in a larger size for added storage and easier handling."

    ^^^^^^^^^ Yep!

    I have the smaller "Magnum" size. A black one for black pepper, a white one for salt, and a "Peppergun" that is red for white pepper.

    I was at a fancy restaruant when the waitress asked if we would like cracked pepper and she pulled one of these out. It made the most even and best coverage of black pepper I had ever seen. I asked her what brand it was then found it on the net.

    I don't regret the cost at all (had my wife get them for me for xmas) and would do it again. I use the black pepper grinder daily.

    (I've never had the loading door open on any of mine).

    Hmm mine does not have the flames - the ball is clear and the handles are black. We have had ours a couple of years - works great.
