Why The Pepper Cannon Is Better

10X The Output of Top-Rated Mills

The Pepper Cannon produces extravagant quantities of fresh ground pepper. Decrease the coarseness and crank less if you can’t handle the full power.

Massive Grind Range, World-Class Quality

Ordinary mills can only grind pepper in the 12-28 mesh size range. The Pepper Cannon can grind from 8 all the way past 60 - coarse enough for stocks and roast beef, and finer than the pre-ground pepper you’ve been forced to buy because your mill wasn’t up for the task. A double-bearing supported drive shaft that powers high-carbon stainless steel burrs ensures you get the best grind, every time.

Superior Consistency

The grind adjuster is on the base where the action is. Dual spring-plungers and detents keep it in place so your setting will stay until you change it.

Effortless Filling

A push-button enabled top is easily removed and replaced without messing with your grind setting or needing re-adjustment. Intuitive and simple.

One-Hand Seasoning

Pre-grind up to ⅓ cup of pepper into the base for easy one-hand seasoning. No need to wash your hands mid-seasoning after flipping your raw steak.

Made The Right Way, Not The Cheap Way

The Pepper Cannon is milled from a solid chunk of Aerospace Grade Aluminum and then anodized black to make the surface durable, non-reactive and easy to clean. The burrs are hardened high-carbon stainless steel - the pepper never stood a chance.

FAQs

Isn’t $199 expensive for a pepper mill?

Yes it is. And a new car is expensive compared to a bicycle.

The Pepper Cannon was engineered and built for performance and it performs exceptionally well. We could have made it less expensively, but it wouldn't be the same quality.

Hopefully one day we'll be able to order material in enough quantity to bring the cost within reach of more people, because no one should have to continue grinding pepper the old way.

That said, the Pepper Cannon will never be as inexpensive as ordinary mills because there's nothing ordinary about it.

Why build the pepper cannon?

We were tired of using stale and inferior pre-ground pepper because existing mills are slow, and we were tired of cranking ordinary pepper mills an excessive number of times to get small amounts of inconsistently ground pepper.

Maybe you are tired of those things too.

When you see top chefs using premium mills crank over 60 times for a simple dish, it means there's an opportunity to improve the experience.

Once we started working on the speed problem, it became apparent that other problems like filling, calibrating, and grind quality/range were also fixable.

We've ground pepper one way for so long that we're used to it, but now there's a better option.

Is the pepper cannon REALLY better? What difference does it really make?

For professional cooks it means better food made faster.

For pepper lovers it means finally getting the amount of pepper you want.

It's the difference between using fresh ground and musty pre-ground pepper.

It's using 15 cranks to pepper a side of brisket instead of 150.

It's the ability to get super fine and super coarse pepper from one device, in seconds.

It's the only pepper mill that will prompt you to say "Whoa" when you use it.

Why call it the Pepper Cannon?

Two reasons.

Reason 1: The more comparisons we did between our prototypes and top rated pepper mills, the more it was apparent that there was no comparison. The Pepper Cannon is a different animal, so it gets a different name.

Reason 2: It's difficult to be upset when a product called the "Pepper Cannon" puts out a lot of pepper. With a name like Pepper Cannon, you know exactly what to expect.

But, will there be too much pepper?

No. There will be the exact amount of pepper you want, ground more consistently, in a fraction of the time.

If you want to decrease the output, either crank it less or adjust the pepper cannon to a finer setting.

* Unless you dial the pepper cannon wide open. Then there may be too much pepper. Use your new pepper power wisely

Can I grind salt in my Pepper Cannon?

No, salt will corrode even stainless steel eventually. Plus, inside each salt crystal is… more salt! It doesn’t have any added flavor/aroma qualities that are improved by grinding, and it doesn’t degrade like pepper when pre-ground. A salt shaker (or box, or bowl) with the size salt you want is fine, unlike a pepper shaker, which is a crime against flavor. We've ground pepper one way for so long that we're used to it, but now there's a better option.

Does the Pepper Cannon put out a lot of pepper at all settings?

No, the finer the grind, the less pepper comes out.

You can adjust the Pepper Cannon so fine that pepper stops coming out completely.

We call this setting "invisibly fine" or "inert iocane powder".

Why do you endorse the grind & shake method?

Every pepper mill can drop remnants of pepper after grinding when you set it down.

After grinding, give the Pepper Cannon (or any other pepper mill) one shake above whatever you're seasoning before putting it down.

This helps prevent wasting pepper and leaving pepper where you don't want it.

Will I have to refill my Pepper Cannon frequently?

That depends on your use. The Cannon holds a half cup of peppercorns, which is generous but not excessive.

It's best to store peppercorns in a sealed container to prolong freshness, so we opted against a super large reservoir (and corresponding height) that would take home users a long time to empty.

Plus the Pepper Cannon is so easy to refill that it's no longer a chore. Pop the top, pour in fresh peppercorns, and click the top back on. No need to remove, replace, and recalibrate the Pepper Cannon just to refill it.

Will the Pepper Cannon come pre-filled with peppercorns?

The Pepper Cannon will ship empty, but we offer a variety of premium peppercorns you can pair with your new favorite grinder.

Can I grind red peppercorns, and white peppercorns, and green peppercorns, and coffee, and cloves, and fennel, and anise, and coriander in it?

Yes.

You should get one Pepper Cannon for each of those things though, or your coffee will taste extra bold & special.

Is the Pepper Cannon available in different colors? I want one for each spice!

Currently, the Cannon is only available in black. We're looking at the possibility of adding silicon sleeves and/or extra tops of differing colors down the road.

How do I clean my Pepper Cannon?

How do I clean my Pepper Cannon?

What if I don’t like pepper?

Purchase a Pepper Cannon to give away to someone who loves cooking.

Right now you're thinking of someone who would love this.

Get one for them.

But, I’m satisfied with my existing pepper mill, aren’t I?

Remember when you used to get up early to harness your horses to the carriage and the horses would poop so much-and it was everywhere?

And then you got a Tesla?

Replacing your pepper mill with a Pepper Cannon is like that.

You won’t want to go back to the old way.

But I like cranking my pepper mill many, many times every time I eat.

That’s not a question.

What's the downside of the Pepper Cannon? It can't be all sunshine and butterflies...

You'll probably go through more pepper. Also, the Pepper Cannon grinds more peppercorns at once so it requires more force to turn than ordinary mills at some settings.

Oh, and dinner guests will try and steal it.

What does MÄNNKITCHEN mean?

Männ is old Norse for “my”, so männkitchen means "my kitchen".

So, in a way-my kitchen is your kitchen, and your kitchen is my kitchen!

Which reminds me- you're out of cheese.

Who are you?

I’m a guy who cooks a lot and appreciates kitchen tools that work exceptionally well.

My background is in design, and I enjoy short walks on the beach.

Did your Mom really say you were a difficult child?

Not out loud within my hearing. Yet.

Yes, the other testimonials are real.

Why would anyone need a pepper cannon?

Professional kitchens need it to save time and increase the consistency/quality of their fresh ground pepper.

You need it for the same reasons, plus to prompt envy in dinner guests.

I’m against firearms, is a pepper cannon a violation of my moral code?

Yes, but in the best way possible.

Is the Pepper Cannon loud?

It is the quietest cannon we've tested.

Is the Pepper Cannon better than a pepper shaker?

It’s better than a pepper shaker in the same way that eating your favorite meal is better than a mouthful of cat litter.

Why aluminum?

Building it out of metal enables us to machine precision parts that fit together with exact tolerances so the results are consistent and fast.

Also, aluminum is the most plentiful metal on Earth, is the easiest to recycle, and can be recycled again and again, indefinitely.

Do people really like me, or do they just come over because I have a Pepper Cannon?

They really like you.

Aaaand the Pepper Cannon helps.

What should I do with my old pepper mill? Looking at it brings back unpleasant memories…

Forgive your old pepper mill. It served you as best it could.

Where is the Pepper Cannon manufactured?

MÄNNKITCHEN is a US company and we work with many different suppliers. The Pepper Cannon is manufactured by an exceptional partner in China. It's very difficult to find quality manufacturing partners that provide both outstanding quality and value. I am always looking for top shelf suppliers and if you know of-or represent one, please contact me!

Does the Pepper Cannon have a warranty?

Yes, the Pepper Cannon has a 5 year warranty against defects in materials and craftsmanship.
