[Canadian Tire] Kamenstein Electric Pepper Grinder ($6.99)

I apologise if this has been posted already. (did a search and nothing came up, so i thought i would post this).

I missed out the last time it came on sale for $5 (about 6 months back). There was a lot of interest for it the last time around.

This time around- the price is 2$ higher than the last time it went on sale i.e $6.99, but i still think it's a good price. I am planning to pick this up in the evening.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Bought 2 of these yesterday after seeing them in the flyer.
Needs 4 x AA batteries, not included (as per the site).

They seem to work pretty well and look/feel nice - I just hate that the capacity for salt/pepper is so small, its like 1/5 the size of the whole length of the grinder.
Otherwise, seems to be worth the $7 :)

The Canadian tire store near me seems always has this grinder on sale, usually 8.99 - 9.99$, $6.99 is a good price anyways

The store near my house was holding the price at 21.99 between the last sale and now. I was happy when i got the sale alert notification email.

Just use a regular grinder. It sucks when the battery dies while cooking.

My regular grinder just died (if that's even possible!)...it just tightens up and doesn't grind anymore!

Buy a good quality pepper grinder. I have matching Trudeau pro salt and pepper shakers and they are way better than any electric ones I've owned.

this is a cheap salt or pepper grinder that seems to work. Hard to tell if this will last more than 1 year. So far after the last sale it's been good.

How much salt/pepper do you use in your food to need an electric grinder. I just don't understand when all you need is several twists at most for a normal grinder. The only practical use for something like this, that I can see, is if someone has hand pains.

It's quite handy (for me anyway) when you need to free up one hand to rub the salt and pepper in instead of grind with both hands for salt and go wash and grind again for pepper. I just don't like touching my grinders after touching the meat.

What's a good manual one? And what's the best material for the grinder, ceramic or some sort of metal or something else?

What is in these electric grinders, ceramic or plastic?

I'm also looking for a manual grinder that maximizes ground pepper per unit of effort or number of revolutions. This is not something to cheap out on!

Bought several when they were $5 for gifts but soon found some didn't work so well.
That being said, one has been in service continually and works great.
