Refilling a disposable pepper or salt mill

Practically no force is needed bro. Just read my post:

After reading most of the posts, I tried to refill my McCormick peppercorn grinder. It was easier than I thought. I took a small flat screwdriver from my computer toolkit and prised all around the base of the cap. Try pushing the screwdriver all the way in and lifting up each time and rotate. Bingo the cap gradually came off in 30 seconds. I refilled it with Badia peppercorns and it snapped right back on. This is the newest grinder as the expiry date is 04/2014. I didnt notice any glue sticking the cap to the glass to prevent refilling.

I must say the cap is attached really tightly to the bottle. I almost busted my finger before using the screwdriver. Concerning comments about the plastic leeching over time into the pepper or salt grinder - the plastic grinder will probably get dull before this happens. Also the McCormick grinder is made with high quality plastics and glass. I guess some people are still afraid of using a microwave or cellphone. We actually inhale more toxic fumes from cars and trucks on a daily basis without realizing it.

Grinder works great again - Hooray!

Okay I checked Amazon and even Ikea's website and the Ikea 365 grinder is not available for purchase online.

For those of us who live outside of the US there are no Ikea Stores.

Refilling a disposable pepper or salt mill

well i didnt buy buy the mccormick bottle to get the grinder. I already had it in the cupboard. i am just offering a solution to the question asked. This can come in handy in case of an emergency and you need a grinder quickly as you dont have time to purchase one while you are in the middle of a dish.
