Part of the reason that freshly ground spices are important is that, once spices are ground, they begin to oxidize and quickly start to lose their potency. This means you may need to use a larger amount of pre-ground spices, whereas you will need less freshly ground pepper, potentially saving you money and protecting your cooking from stale spices.

Using a salt or pepper mill might seem a little inconvenient at first, especially when most households and restaurants tend to opt for the standard shaker set, filled with pre-ground salt and pepper. Before spice mills became commonly available for household use, spices were freshly ground in a mortar and pestle, allowing the user to simply crush them by hand.
