No, mine is fine. Wait, let me go look........................OK, I just looked. I thought I saw rust but it was just the darker minerals stuck in the grinding area. I brushed the area with a DRY Easy Clean Kitchen Brush. Some spots are starting but not sure if it is rust or just discoloration.

Not rusting but cracked and the grinding mechanism was falling out (as well as a LOT of salt!)...am sending mine back for replacement.

I haven't looked for any rust (will have to do that), but I did have one of the tiny screws fall out from the bottom of the finial. It was getting caught in the grinder.

I was just refilling mine the other day and noticed rust on the screws that go into the bamboo part of the grinder. The rod was fine though.

the rust is from the salt itself. i made my kids a "treasure bottle" which is little items in an old gatorade bottle filled with salt. they shake it & "discover" what's buried. anyways, i have a baby spoon in there & it's TOTALLY rusted! and it only took a few months to get that way.

Hmmmm ....

I stopped using my grinder for salt. I like a coarse grind of pepper but I like my salt to be more fine. When I use it for salt, way too much of it comes out. I use my old grinder for that and reserve the bamboo one for pepper.
