Good idea but didn't live up to expectations

We wound up returning this item because, for the price, it was little better than our glass French press, for which we have a cozy. It's very attractive looking, but even with pre-heating the pot, the temperature of the coffee, on the second cup, was about the same as with the other press. Also, the lid has a certain position and it was annoying finagling with it to get it on correctly. It seemed to be well-made and we were disappointed that it did not keep the coffee hot longer.

PepperMate Mills : You'll have a crush on these versatile ceramic mills used by celebrity chefs including the Barefoot Contessa and Paula Deen. Easy to operate and adjustable to any size grain from fine to course. Snap-off lid and large opening make them easy to fill, and a clear base cup makes measuring a snap, too. Best of all, they're durable since ceramic mills are not affected by corrosive elements like salt. Product Features Models: 723B, 723W Attractive molded plastic housing with ceramic grinder Perfect for grinding fresh peppercorns, sea salt and dried spices up to the size of a coffee bean Adjustable from fine- to coarse-grain Large-capacity removable base Lifetime warranty on grinding mechanism

I bought one of these peppermills at least 25 years ago, and it is still going strong. The only problem I've had is that the bottom container started falling off and the white finish is a little stained from sitting next to the stove. So I decided to treat myself to a new one and got a black one, which has a matte finish, I was glad to see. The mill grinds perfectly, fine or coarse, and I always loved the container feature at the bottom. Plus it's super easy to fill. You can't go wrong with this peppermill.
