Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for a coarse grind Bought this for car camping since I love black pepper. Unfortunately, after some time the cap begins to slip on the shaft when you try to grind- the square shaft fits into a socket in the rubber cap- and that rubbery material isn't stiff enough to hold the shaft securely, so the shaft has begun to spin. I think it would be OK if you adjusted it for a finer grind, but I like coarse. It's going back, much to the disappointment of my taste buds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for home too! I am a minimalist camper, but my comfort driven partner also loves this little gem. We bought one for car camping, but it is so small and light that we also use it for backpacking. We are buying two more -- one for home and one to keep in the car so we have fresh pepper even if we 'dine' on fast food. The cap keeps stray pepper crumbs contained, and snaps to the top for secure storage. This would be a great gift item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this Have had one of these for several years and it works great. Easy to fill, easy to adjust and never go camping or canoeing without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super nice to have on long trips I bought this for bicycle touring and love it. My one gripe with it is that it doesn't have a cap, and we always had bits of pepper all over our kitchen pack. However, on the plus side, it is light, easily filled, and the grind is simple to adjust. It works well and we were both very happy to have it along. I plan to buy a second one and attempt to use it as a salt grinder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Grinder decent volume, tight unit, would enjoy a clear cased model for freshly ground sea salt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It Had One Job. I kept this in my day-hiking pack to spice up quick lunches. I tried it over and over and over, until I gave up and got a shaker. The reason: it wouldn't grind very much spice and it was very hard to twist to grind it. After twisting and twisting, I would have barely a sprinkle of pepper out of it. Not very efficient. I really love the look of the grinder, but this product has been replaced in my day-hike pack.

Could this be used to grind fresh espresso?

The GSI Outdoors Pepper Grinder is built for pepper only and not intended to be used as a coffee grinder.
