Peppermills: All About My Peppermills

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,

    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.

      Alas, the peppermills are no longer for sale. For many years, when I was on the food network, a fan of mine, who called himself Pinky (used to be a red head when he was young), made those mills and sent them to me. We introduced the audience to them and he started making them for sale, although he never made any money because they were so labor intensive. Finally he got to old to do that anymore.

    I have a Pinky Martin peppermill! I was hoping you could tell me if there’s anyway (anyone) you know of to provide service? The mechanism in the mill needs some TLC and we’re not sure how to accomplish this. It’s so wonderful – we want to keep using it! Thank you in advance if you can help us.

    • Sara Moulton says:

      Hmmm, Dana, Alas I don’t know. However if you find someone who can fix it, let me know so I can have that handy for other folks.
