A touch of the soft-press button on top, and you can enjoy the aroma, flavor and culinary flair of freshly ground spices. Locate the dial at the bottom of the mill to select your desired level of grinding fineness. 6 AAA batteries (not included) drive the powerful ceramic mechanism, which remains rustproof and dull-resistant over many years of happy use. The transparent container is easy to fill with a range of whole spices, and makes content levels easily visible. As an added nicety, a bright down-facing LED light is automatically activated during operation, illuminating your food to promote accurate spicing. Works well with; black, red or white peppercorn, wild peppercorn, sea salt, rock salt, pink salt and a range of other spices.
