The mill, after a period of use, contains peppercorns, peppercorn pieces and ground peppercorns, all mixed near the grinding mechanism. Hence, what is dispensed after the mill has been used for some time after its initial loading is not freshly ground pepper but a mixture of freshly ground pepper and pepper ground at some earlier time. Overall pungency drops precipitously from that glorious initial grind.
