Made in France since 1840, Peugeot mills are renowned by chefs and gourmet cooks the world over for their consistent grind results, incredible resilience and proven reliability. Compromise is not a word that fits into the Peugeot vocabulary. For each spice, there is one and only one Peugeot grinding mechanism: peppercorns, coarse dry salt, chilies, herbs & spices, wet salts and nutmeg. Add the coffee mechanism, which started it all, and there are seven unique Peugeot mechanisms. Each is designed to derive the most flavor and greatest aroma from its complementary spice. Aesthetically pleasing, Peugeot mills deliver the height of quality, durability, reliability and innovation, making these mills the ones to which all others are compared. In a similar style to Peugeot's Paris Classic wooden mills, Nancy mills are made with crystal clear acrylic. The grind is adjusted by turning the top nut: turn it clockwise (tighten) for a finer grind; counter-clockwise (loosen) for a coarser grind. The pepper mill is equipped with Peugeot’s legendary pepper grinding mechanism. Made of case-hardened steel, it has received additional treatment against wear and corrosion. Its double-row of helix-shaped claws grab and crack each peppercorn before drawing it down to the teeth for the perfect grind. The salt mill is equipped with Peugeot’s exceptional salt grinding mechanism: two ribbed plates are made from a stainless steel blend that offers resiliency and resistance to corrosion from dry salts. When the mechanism is activated, the ribs work to twist and fracture each salt crystal to the desired size.
