Irresponsible, wasteful, frustrating design.
Whoever signed off on this product needs their head examined. The plastic grinder is very strongly attached to the glass body, so essentially what most people will be buying is 50g of pepper in 135g of landfill waste. The lid comes free with a great deal of effort, people with weaker hands will need vice grips. Even if you manage to refill, the grinder is plastic, and will wear down (into your food) in no time at all.
Contents are very good, packaging for not re-filli
Contents are very good, packaging for not re-filling and not re-cycling, very bad. Poor show Tesco, very frustrating.
Designed to be impossible to recycle or reuse!
"Packing. Mixed Material not currently recycled". And an in-built lock on the grinder mechanism so it can't be split into glass/plastic for recycling or re-used. Come on, Tesco! There's no excuse for products to be unsustainably packaged in this way!
CAREFUL - Top comes off.
For the second time I have had one of these come apart and cover a meal in peppercorns. When it first happened a couple of months ago I assumed I had been heavy handed or something, but a second incident with a new jar today indicates it is some design problem. It is good pepper but it needs a new grinder.
Dont buy not refillable
Product great but can not be refilled which is a waste completely
Disappointing.The contents of the grinder is great
Disappointing.The contents of the grinder is great but the top doesn't come off so it cannot be re-used or re-cycled. .
Wouldn't buy again
Grinder got jammed with peppercorns and wouldn't budge so had to throw away half full. Cant refill so disappointing. Replaced with premium make - "you get what you pay for" and was miles better.
Poor show Tesco - un-refillable and un-recyclable
Non-refillable and non-recyclable because you can't separate the lid from the base. C'mon Tesco - you can do better.
came apart when using it, and covered meal.
Fell apart when grinding over a meal. The whole lot came out and I had to throw meal away.
We first tried this a few months ago and we loved it!!!!it doesn’t last long we have it on everything
