Pepper Cannon Instruction Manual
Welcome to the pepper revolution.
Do NOT put salt in your pepper cannon.
Do NOT put your pepper cannon in the dishwasher.
Filling your Pepper Cannon:
Open the Pepper Cannon by pressing the quick-release button while liftting the top. Fill with peppercorns. Replace the top and rotate it gently until it drops down on the drive shaft, then press until the top clicks into place.
Adjusting your Pepper Cannon:
Output increases as the grind adjuster is rotated counter-clockwise & the distance between the burrs increases. Output decreases as the grind adjuster is rotated clockwise & the distance between the burrs decreases. There are approximately 75 clicks from the finest (slow) setting to the coarsest (FAST) setting. Yes, 75+ grind options may be excessive.
Make Extra Fine Pepper with your Pepper Cannon:
Rotate the adjuster clockwise until it stops. This is setting ZERO, the finest setting. Almost NO pepper will come out of your Pepper Cannon at the finest setting but you will feel peppercorns being ground while you crank even though very little pepper escapes. Grind for 10-15 cranks, then turn the adjuster 2-3 clicks counter-clockwise and continue cranking so the finely ground pepper can fall. Using this method, the Pepper Cannon can produce extra fine sub-60 mesh ground pepper.
Want Pepper Faster?
Turn the adjuster counter-clockwise, stopping every 5 clicks to grind until you reach the desired balance of coarseness and output.
Make Extra Coarse Pepper (Warning: HIGH OUTPUT)
Turn the adjuster counter-clockwise until the adjuster stops. CAUTION: At the coarsest settings, your Pepper Cannon will produce prodigious quantities of VERY coarse (cracked) pepper.
Note: You may never need the coarsest (or finest) settings of your Pepper Cannon, but it’s better to have and not need than to need and not have.
The safety screw in the base of the drive shaft (center of the adjuster) prevents the adjuster from being rotated off the end of the drive shaft unintentionally. This screw should be tight at all times when the Pepper Cannon is in use, and only removed to disassemble the Pepper Cannon.
Using the base cup. Or not.
Use 1/4 turn when removing or replacing the base cup. If the tension is too high, the o-ring may be twisted. It can be untwisted, or lightly oiled to reduce tension. The O-ring can be removed from the base cup if you prefer to use it as a base only. The unit can be used without the base cup if preferred.
