Peppermills: All About My Peppermills

Posted on May 16th, 2011  |  Filed under Kitchen Shrink « Useful Info

I have recently gotten more e-mails asking, “Who made your peppermills and where can I get one?” My  peppermills were made for me by an octogenarian woodworker named Pinky Martin. When Oprah invited me to come on her show to give one of the peppermills to a viewer, Pinky got so many orders that he closed his waiting list. He is still working on that list but has promised to let me know when he is ready to accept orders again so I can post his e-mail address on this web site.

Any chance he might be taking orders for the peppermills again soon? I have been checking off and on for years. I have also looked elsewhere and can not find anything as beautiful.

Thanks so much,

Kathy Gavigan

Kathy,
They are indeed beautiful and unique but Pinky is not a spring chicken and the list is long. I doubt he will be taking any new orders soon.
sorry!

WOW…I remember seeing your peppermill 15 (!) years ago and wanting one. Finally…I can find its source and other handmade ones online 15 years later! :) You worked with my son Zach at Astor in NYC…thanks for the autographed cookbook! I miss your nightly show on FoodTV (remeber that?) Thats where I saw the peppermill.

Susan,
They are a thing of beauty aren’t they and the story behind them is so lovely. meanwhile, I hope you have checked out my new show – “Sara’s Weeknight Meals,” on PBS?
