Tip & How-To about Kitchen Appliances - Others
Hello. This is about opening an acrylic pepper and salt mill or pepper grinder so that you may refill this kitchen utensil. One will usually find that the chrome knob on top of the pepper mill is used to open the pepper mill can be too difficult to open, because one cannot grip the chrome knob on top of the pepper mill to open. I am going to offer three different options for opening a pepper mill:
1) Use a pair of work gloves with specialize dripping material on finger tips. Hold top bulb while turning chrome knob counter clockwise.
2) A small nut wrench with cellophane tape on chrome knob to above marring chrome knob.
3) Get a wrench and a towel. Fit folded towel in jaws of wrench and place towel and open wrench on chrome knob and turn counter clockwise. Practice on a pine dowel to know appropriate pressure to use to avoid marring the chrome knob. If you can replace the chrome smooth knob with a grip friendly knob, if possible.
Finally, do not over tighten knob just finger tight.
