The French company Peugeot may be most commonly associated with cars, but they actually made spice mills first, far back in 1874. In the 146 years since, no other salt and pepper mills stay as sharp, resist corrosion as well, and last as long, which is why nobody in the culinary industry would hesitate to call them ‘iconic’. The grinding mechanism in this elegantly shaped Bistro Pepper Mill is made from hardened steel, so it can withstand the stress of grinding tougher peppercorns without shedding some of its own metal along with it. It is helix-shaped, so peppercorns wait their turn before being cracked in half and further ground to your preference. The knob on the top of the mill can be adjusted to obtain your ideal pepper grind: the tighter the knob, the finer the pepper. A matching salt mill is sold separately.
Why we love it‘Any fine dining restaurant worth its salt (excuse the pun) has a Peugeot mill. Expertly crafted inside and out, these grinders seem to “wake up” pepper and salt just before it reaches your plate.’

About The Brand
In 1810, brothers Jean Pierre and Jean Frédéric Peugeot converted their ancestral family mill into a steel mill. Rolled steel has been at the heart of Peugeot’s business ever since, and though the company is most often associated with cars, their iconic pepper mills came first.
Peugeot has officially been awarded the prestigious EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant) label in recognition of its excellence. This state-issued accolade rewards French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial expertise. Everything from design to technical development is handled in their French factory. With a commitment to sustainability, the wood used for their mills is sourced from PEFC-certified European forests. To protect the environment, post manufacturing wood waste, chips and sawdust, is collected and recycled. Solvent-free lacquers have been chosen for their colour finishes.Shop Peugeot
