In 1810, the PEUGEOT brothers converted the mill inherited from their miller ancestors into a steel mill. Since then, rolled steel has been at the heart of PEUGEOTS activities. Saw blades and tools led to a wide and various range of manufactured products: from crinolines, sewing machines, shearers, penny-farthing bicycles and finally, to cars. In 1840, the PEUGEOT coffee mill entered the kitchen and opened the way for the Peugeot pepper mill in 1874. Since then, many spices have felt the lions claws.
Spices come in many varieties so they cannot all be ground with the same mechanism. For this reason, PEUGEOT has developed mechanisms with specific characteristics and designs, each adapted to a particular spice: pepper, sea salt, dry herbs, nutmeg, chili pepper, wet sea salt Thanks to continuous innovation and the use of new materials, PEUGEOT now offers a very large range of mills. Traditional, electric or equipped with the patented adjustable grinding system, the PEUGEOT mill has become the industry standard.
