SPECIALITY Portland Peppermill Co. Grinders


These grinders stand as mixed media works of art. Internally they feature the same world class mechanism as our classic mills, but for the exterior we use special root burls that have numerous natural holes and voids into which we inlay crushed turquoise and soapstone.

The unique process involved in making our Specialty Grinders is meticulously time-consuming, and the woods we use are extremely rare.

We offer our specialty mill, which grinds both salt & pepper, in three sizes: 6″, 8” and 10”, and in two different species of wood, buckeye and manzanita. Our photos provide an accurate representation of the options, but since no two root burls are alike, the inlays, wood grain, and patterning will vary. (Currently, the manzanita mill is only available in the 6″ size.)

Packaged with Care

Every Portland Peppermill Co. grinder comes in a branded box with instructions for usage, warranty, and care.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Peter Chordas

Between pre-ground spices in my youth and cheap plastic peppermills in my college days, my first Portland Peppermill Co. grinder was nothing short of a culinary miracle. The weight and quality feels wonderful in the hand, the mechanism turns smoothly and grinds with authority, the handsome looks garner compliments at dinner gatherings, and the way that wonderful aroma of fresh ground spices hits you when you give it a twist over your dish… Trust me, if you don't have a real spice grinder in your life, order one right now. It will transform your kitchen, your table, and everything else about the way you enjoy food.
