Peugeot were the first company to make spice mills, back in 1874—before they made cars. In the 146 years since, no other salt and pepper mills stay as sharp, resist corrosion as well, and last as long. Salt, unlike pepper, can corrode metal if it absorbs too much moisture. That’s why most salt mill blades are made from less durable ceramic. Not Peugeot’s, which are made from rust-resistant 18/10 stainless steel so it lasts for many more years. The six U'Select settings can can be found on the bottom of the mill with roman numerals—I is finest, and VI is most coarse. Just set your preference, crank the mill, and season your food to bring out its flavours. The body is made from European beechwood and stainless steel finish. A complementary pepper mill in a contemporary matt black finish is sold separately.
Note: 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
'This shape stores lots of salt, so you don't have to refill as often. Peugeot's U'Select grind settings are excellent, too—whether you choose fine or coarse, you can expect consistency.'

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
