Peugeot Paris 7" Red Lacquered Salt Mill - PM23591
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 Peugeot Paris Pepper mill is a classic and timeless shape. This version of the has the new Peugeot U-Select grinding system for precision grinding. The Paris is one of the most popular Peugeot mill shapes, so it's available in a number of sizes and finishes, in the classic or U-Select versions.
This Peugeot Pepper mill has the patented Peugeot U-Select system, which allows
precise grind adjustments for perfect results every time. The Peugeot pepper
mechanism has a double helix shaped row of teeth to guide and hold the peppercorns
for the perfect grind. The pepper mechanism has a patented treatment to protect
the steel from corrosion and wear. Comes partially filled with peppercorns.
Matching salt mill sold separately.
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.
