The Peugeot family has been making salt and pepper mills since 1874, regarded by many as the best in the world. The Peugeot brand means different things to different people. For some, cars come to mind, for others, bikes. At Borough Kitchen, we think of salt and pepper mills. The mills are made in Alsace, France, using European wood. Peugeot mills are known for their consistent grind and sleek design, looking perfect in any home, kitchen or restaurant.
Frequently Asked Questions
What type of salt should I use in my Peugeot salt mill?
We recommend using dry, coarse sea salt in your salt mill.
What type of pepper should I use in my Peugeot pepper mill?
We recommend using dry, hard, whole peppercorns in your pepper mill.
How should I clean my Peugeot mill?
We recommend using a dry, clean cloth to clean your mill. Detergents or cleaning agents should not be used.
The pepper is ground too coarse - how can I get a finer grind?
If you have a manual mill, there's a knob at the top. The tighter the knob, the coarser the grind. The manual pepper and salt mills have an adjustable grind at the bottom, there are six settings from I - IIIIII. The Bistro mills are adjusted at the top - the tighter the knob, the finer the grind. The electric mills have the same adjustable grind, but the graduations are done horizontally. The smaller the number the finer the grind.
You carry a lot of different types of mills. What are the differences?
The steel of each Peugeot mill has been treated with Peugeot's 'IMP' coating which maintains its super sharpness and prevents corrosion and rusting, vastly increasing durability. The mechanism is fully adjustable, allowing for a grinding range from ultrafine to coarse for a perfect, precise grind. Each mechanism comes with a lifetime guarantee.
The Paris mills have an iconic shape and are either made from an attractive beechwood that has seven layers of hand-applied lacquer or brushed stainless steel. Either finish looks great in any home, kitchen or restaurant. The Pariss mills come in 3 finishes - natural beechwood with a natural or chocolate finish, lacquered finish - in white, red and black or brushed stainless steel.
The Bistro mills are classically shaped and reminiscent of traditional French café culture. The body is made from an attractive beechwood that looks great in any home, kitchen or restaurant.
Named after the island off the coast of Brittany, the transparent acrylic body of these mills show off the salt and peppers inside them. Grind size is adjusted by moving the top knob clockwise (finer) or counter-clockwise (coarser).
With a textured cast iron body, this distinctive pepper mill looks like a chess piece (no salt version is available). It comes filled with Sichuan peppercorns.
The Elis electric mills are ergonomically designed to make it simple to grind pepper and salt thanks to the incorporation of touch-sensitive technology. Simply touch the touch-pad on the top and hold the body of the mill to dispense the right dose of pepper/salt. The mills have an adjustable grinding system and come with the Peugeot mechanism that is guaranteed for life.
The Palace mills feature a beechwood wooden body with an antique finish and hallmarked silver-plated metal.
