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 Ferrari is expensive compared to a Volkswagen.

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 the stainless steel internals eventually.

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 methods of differentiating the mills for those have multiples.

How do I clean my Pepper Cannon?

Wipe the exterior with a warm damp cloth or paper towel. It is recommended to keep the interior of the Pepper Cannon dry. If you must wash it, be certain to dry the interior thoroughly before refilling as it uses dry bearings, and they need to be kept dry. Do not put the Pepper Cannon in the dishwasher.

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.

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. We are always looking for top shelf suppliers and if you know of-or represent one, please contact us!

Does the Pepper Cannon have a warranty?

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

The perfect pepper mill.

I knew the would like my new pepper mill but I didn't expect to love it as much as I do. It literally gets used multiple times a day. I ordered my Pepper Cannon and in less than a week I received it. Well worth the expense.

Efficient machine

It is extremely efficient and has amazing output.

It is pretty hard to turn and someone with a weaker grip will have trouble using this.

So good that I've bought three so far.

I know what you're thinking. $200 for a pepper grinder? What kind of yuppie bullshit is this?!

My friends, this beautiful chunk of milled aluminum and stainless steel will change your life, and it will change your life for the worse. With just a single crank you'll become a pepper grinder snob, and look down at all other, inferior pepper mills.

And let's be real here, other pepper mills are hot trash. It doesn't matter how expensive or French they are, they suck at grinding pepper, which is literally their only job. They're the single most rage inducing peice of kitchen equipment because they're just SO bad.

And then there's the pepper cannon. It loves to grind pepper. A lot of it. At many different levels of coarseness. And it's super easy to refill, which is fortunate, because when I say this thing loves to grind pepper that's like casually mentioning that the surface of the sun is warm. Friends. Listen. This pepper mill SLAPS. And it's dead sexy. You'll feel powerful holding it. Like you could bludgeon a grizzly bear.

Sure you could look at mills from Weber Workshops, but Doug Weber is a turd and you don't want to give him money, it'll just encourage him to come out with more coffee grinders that suck at grinding coffee.

So get yourself a pepper cannon. Then buy your besties a couple because it's criminal to not share something so glorious with the world. Do the right thing.

So far, so good!

I’m really impressed with the design of this pepper mill! Not only is there an ease of adjusting degrees of coarseness, but the blizzard of pepper promised is indeed what you get! I can’t attest to its longevity yet, but if it lasts like it’s built, then the price is completely justified.

Pepper cannon

Great product. Sturdy design and a ton of pepper!

Only issue is the container on the bottom - the fit is so tight that it has to be forced into place. Perhaps that will get easier with use.

Hi James,
The vast majority of the bases are not tight-but you're absolutely correct-the ones that ARE tight are a pain. It's due to either a slightly oversized o-ring, damaged o-ring (always twist when removing/replacing to prolong o-ring life) or slightly thicker anodized coating (either on base cup or main body).

When working as intended, it is not difficult to remove or replace. Try replacing the existing o-ring withe the included spare. A bit of oil on the o-ring can help, and many (myself included) remove the o-ring and just use the cup as a base. I don't have the individual o-rings yet, but the size we settled on is 35mm OD x 1.5mm. They can be found on amazon. If the anodized coating is the cause, a slightly smaller size (32-33mm) can work to decrease the tension. Apologies for the headaches!
