easter, island style: tiki head pepper mill

tikipepper

When I spotted this fun Tiki Head pepper mill at Neatoshop ($15.95 ), I knew about five people off the top of my head it would be perfect for (myself included). He’s just the thing to bring a little Easter Island to the Easter table — just fill with 4 AA batteries (and pepper, of course), press his imposing nose, and your pepper will be effortlessly ground and dispensed right where it’s needed — like the scalloped potatoes. — Megan B.

I love the design – I am wondering, though, why a pepper mill needs so much electrical power? Most peppermills I’ve seen don’t need batteries at all, why so many?
