Peugeot puts their high-quality grinding mechanism in their wooden salt and pepper mills. Each Paris U’Select mill has six grind-size settings from dust to coarse. The pepper mill will crack the peppercorns before it grinds them, and the salt mechanism is engineered to resist corrosion. The piano-lacquer finish comes in several colors including brilliant white. The mills shouldn’t be left near a stove burner and become excessively hot. The salt mill is not for grinding wet salt. To bring back it’s shine just wipe with a damp cloth and thoroughly dry.
