Peugeot Salt and Pepper Mills are the original. Peugeot invented the pepper mill in 1842, and the grinding mechanism has remained virtually unchanged. It has two rows of spiral teeth which crack peppercorns before grinding them.
Peugeot also pioneered the Salt Mill with specific design for non-corrosive stainless bits. Peugeot salt & pepper mills are reliable, don’t go blunt when you use them, have an unlimited guarantee on their mechanism, and are made in France. Our 10cm hard-to get bistro size is the French café classic.
Unlike many sets, the pepper and the salt mill here are different woods and easily distinguishable at the table. And yes, the salt and pepper Peugeot are related to the car Peugeot people – they were the second manufacturer of motor cars, after Mercedes.
