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’. 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 many years. The knob on the top of the mill can be adjusted to obtain your ideal grind: the tighter the knob, the finer the salt. A matching pepper mill is sold separately. Made from upcycled wood that is not uniform in look or texture yet retains its strength and durability. It's finished with an ecological varnish of vegetable origin to preserve the character of the wood. Each piece is unique.
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‘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.’
