There are many differences in the functions of the pepper grinder, we introduce a few common points to analyze how to choose from functions.
1. Selection of core material
When buying a pepper grinder, the most important key factor is the material of the blade of the product. At present, the common materials are cast iron, stainless steel and ceramic.
If you want to use it in a hot and humid kitchen, stainless steel that is not easy to rust is a good choice, and it can also be used to grind rock salt. However, stainless steel is softer than other metals and is prone to wear after long-term use.
Cast iron is a very hard metal, and even harder and larger peppercorns can be ground reliably and quickly. However, the disadvantage is that it is easy to rust, it must be kept away from moisture, and it cannot be used to grind rock salt.
Ceramic is a strong material, in addition to not rusting, it can also grind rock salt. In addition, the aroma of pepper is easily lost due to the heat generated during grinding, but the ceramic material is not prone to generate frictional heat, so it can effectively maintain the original aroma of pepper.
2. The style that adjusts the grinding thickness is more practical
If you want to maximize the practicability of the pepper grinder, you may wish to check to see if the product has the additional function of adjusting the grinding thickness. When dining at the table, we usually only use coarse-grained pepper to add flavor; but if it is used in cooking, we may need pepper grains of the same thickness. You can choose according to your personal needs.
3. The detachable, non-rusty style is easy to clean
The two-hand twist type pepper grinder can be easily disassembled and cleaned due to its simple internal structure, but most other types of products cannot be disassembled, which greatly increases the difficulty of cleaning and maintenance. Even if it is a model that can be dismantled, in order to avoid residual moisture after cleaning and causing rust, it is recommended that you use a clean dry cloth to wipe it instead of rinsing with clean water.
However, cooking will inevitably cause oily smoke and oil stains on the pepper grinder, and it is difficult to clean it thoroughly only by wiping. At this time, it is recommended that you buy a style made of glass or acrylic material. In addition, ceramic blades are less prone to rust than stainless steel. These materials can be easily cleaned.
4. The style that can see the remaining capacity at a glance is suitable for people who use it frequently
When you are cooking, you must have encountered the experience of picking up the condiment bottle, only to find that the bottle is already empty. Is it very inconvenient? Especially for dishes that require quick frying, if you have to stop to add seasonings during cooking, it may also affect the flavor of the finished dishes. Therefore, although the wooden pepper grinder looks classic and likable, if you use it frequently, it is recommended to buy products made of transparent materials such as glass or acrylic, so that you can see the remaining capacity at a glance!
Different types of pepper grinders have different advantages and disadvantages. It is recommended that you refer to the points shared today before purchasing, and choose the most suitable style according to your own needs!
