In the world of peppermills Peugeot is the acknowledged leader in the design and manufacture of long-lasting, reliable grinding mechanisms. Here are the reasons why a Peugeot pepper mill is the very BEST!
The grinding mechanism has grinding and channeling grooves cut into the metal. These large grooves are designed to line up the peppercorns with the smaller grinding grooves so that the corns are cracked in half before they are more finely ground. These grooves are individually cut into the metal, which is then case hardened, making the grinding nut and head as hard as a ball bearing. With a mechanism that hard, the simple action of grinding peppercorns will not deteriorate the mechanism in any way: hence, the unlimited guarantee on the Peugeot pepper mill mechanism. The Peugeot salt grinder has a stainless steel mechanism and comes with a 20-year warranty. Some of us feel that sea salt without the chemical additives of ordinary table salt tastes better. [
Each of the Rotisserie mills stand 7" tall. The knurled nut on top [silver colored on the pepper mill; brass on the salt mill] is turned to adjust the grind or unscrewed to remove the lid for refilling. Both pepper and salt mills are available in the stains indicated and may be purchased separately or as a set.
