I have purchased a number of salt mills over the past 20 years, but this one is the best so far. It has a very nice, even grind, and is adjustable-- so you don't have huge coarse chunks when you are going for a fine dusting. You have to tip the mill upside down before you grind it, but the advantage is that it doesn't leak salt all over the place. We love it so much, we got one for the table and one for the stove top. I'm not so into the brushed nickel look, but the functionality of it sold me.
