Peugeot Rennes Electric Pepper Mill - PM20323
Peugeot of France created the pepper grinder in 1842. The patented design of the grinding mechanism created by a company engineer for the first Peugeot pepper mills is still in use today, virtually unchanged. Often copied, but never equaled, the mechanism made of case hardened steel is designed to crack the peppercorns before the actual fine grinding process. The grooves on a Peugeot mechanism are individually cut into the metal, and then case hardened, making them virtually indestructible. The same unyielding commitment that goes into every Peugeot pepper mill mechanism is also evident in the stainless steel pepper mechanism. Peugeot grinding mechanisms are the choice of food professionals and discerning cooks around the world.
Rennes electric pepper and salt mills from Peugeot are not only fine examples of contemporary design, but work effortlessly thanks to batteries, a boon for those with hand or wrist issues. Each 8" cylinder is constructed of 18/10 stainless steel that is brushed to a satiny finish, and features a clear acrylic viewing window. Peugeot pepper mills use case-hardened-steel grinding heads with two sizes of grooves; the larger grooves crack the peppercorns in half and direct them into the smaller grooves, which grind them much more finely than most mills. The base of each mill unscrews for adding peppercorns, while turn arrows indicate positioning to vary the coarseness of the grind.
