These grinders are very solid, lacquered finish is easy to wipe clean, have a good balance in the hand. For me they are the right balance between traditional and modern. The U-select is easily adjustable. Pepper is much tastier from this mill (no stale, half-cracked grounds remaining in the mill). Now only time will tell if the mechanisms are as durable as claimed.
