Peugeot Paris 12" Natural Salt Mill - PM23416
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 salt mechanism. Peugeot grinding mechanisms are the choice of food professionals and discerning cooks around the world.
The high quality beech wood used in Peugeot mills is grown, harvested, dried, shaped and finished in France. Paris mills are available as either pepper or salt mills (various sizes for each), in either a varnished or a piano-style gloss lacquer finish. For Paris u'Select mills, the grind is adjusted by turning the ring at the bottom of the mill. Turning the ring in one direction makes the grind finer, turning in the other makes it coarser. Once the grind size is set, it will stay in place until the user changes it.
This Peugeot pepper mill has the patented Peugeot U-Select system, which allows precise grind adjustments for perfect results every time. The Peugeot high grade stainless steel salt mechanism is resistant to the corrosive properties of dry salt. It is specifically designed to fracture and crush dry salt to the desired consistency without causing wear upon itself. A natural choice.Comes partially filled with sea salt. Matching pepper mill sold separately.
