This PepperMate purchase was an exact replacement for one which I purchased in New Orleans approximately 18 years ago in a specialty kitchen shop on Decatur Street. I would not have had to replace it except that it was accidently dropped on cement and the bottom cup portion cracked; the mechanism continues to work. The size of the grind is easy to manage. I like the fact that there are no batteries; should my hands and fingers become arthritic then and only then shall I switch to a battery operated peppermill.
