Product Details

The French company Peugeot may be most commonly associated with cars, but they 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'. Made of olivewood and adorned by bright metal knobs, just like the original design, this duo of Bistro salt and pepper mills embodies casual elegance. Equipped with Peugeot’s foolproof mechanisms for salt and pepper, both of which come with a lifetime guarantee, you can control the coarseness of the salt and pepper in these mills by tightening the top for a finer grind and loosening it for a more varied texture. 

Note: These mills cannot be interchangeably, as their inner mechanisms are different. Salt mills are intended to grind large crystals of salt; small particles of salt or sea salt flakes, like Maldon or Cornish, will get stuck in the mechanism.

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.
