Distinguished by its dramatic red-lacquer "piano" finish, these mills feature Peugeot's masterfully engineered grinding mechanism – long considered among the finest. The 9" salt mill's stainless-steel parts are designed specifically for dry salt crystals and coated to resist their natural corrosive properties. The 12" pepper mill operates by first cracking, then grinding the peppercorns, producing pepper with optimal aroma and maximum flavor. Because its mechanism is made of case-hardened steel, its blades maintain their razor sharpness. Both mills' "u'Select" feature lets you choose your preferred grind: Simply turn the base ring to switch from fine to coarse grinds. Made in France.
