Though Peugeot is most often associated with cars, their iconic spice mills came first. Produced in France since 1874, their pepper mills are made from hardened steel so it can withstand the stress of grinding tough dried pepper without shedding some of its own metal along with it. A helix-shaped mechanism makes peppercorns wait their turn before being cracked and further ground to your preference, providing a flavourful and uniform grind you can adjust to be coarse or fine. The Isen manual wooden mill is specifically designed to grind long peppers, large pods of star anise, and other larger spices. Every detail has been carefully thought out, such as the delicately-opening hopper as well as the accurate and effective grind adjustment system.
Why we love it
'Any chef or passionate home cook can attest that freshly-ground spices is the secret to deeply flavourful meals. This specially-shaped mill provides a quicker way to grind spices than a mortar and pestle.'
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
