Featuring a stainless steel grinding mechanism, it adjusts easily from fine to coarse with the knurled top.
It’s made by Chef Specialties Co in Smethport, PA. Purchased from and custom engraved by totalengraving.com. (See update below.)
I have to admit, we wanted one of these ever since we saw it on the Emeril Live show. (But we constantly wonder why he lays it down sideways… I think it’s a “production” issue… can’t have that thing sitting up tall, and distracting the viewers, now can we?)
So, Wifey ordered this for me, for my birthday. It arrived plain, un-tatooed, sans logo… NAKED even.
I sent Tom at totalengraving.com a post-it note, with my nickname sketched on it, and my grinder came back with the “design” burned in, at actual size. Awesome job, Tom!
This would make a great gift for your favorite foodie! And the website has different woods, and dozens of designs to choose from.
Update 01/03/11: Tom’s new website is called http://totalengraving.com
