Grind Up Your Spices With This Camera Lens Manual Pepper Mill Grinder

lenspeppergrinder

Here’s another curious photography-related novelty item for those of you looking to fill your house with them (i.e. those of you who purchased the lens shaped vacuum cleaner and lens-shaped humidifier that we featured recently): it’s a lens shaped pepper mill.

It’s a manual burr grinder, so you simply fill it with your favorite peppercorn and then turn the twist the focus ring on the lens body in order to grind it into powdered pepper.

The bottom lens cap of the lightweight plastic grinder serves as a cover when it’s not in use, and the front element pops off when you need to refill it. Here are a couple of product shots by CoolStuffExpress that show the individual components:

You can even adjust the size of the resulting powder: twisting a ring on the lens will allow you to choose between coarse and fine ground pepper!

Can’t wait to pick one up? These grinders are selling for selling for $19 each over on Amazon.
