Silver Peugeot Peppermill - 4 inches

Availability: In stock
£210
This Sterling Silver Pepper Mill is handmade in our workshops by our highly skilled and experienced silversmiths. It is fitted with the world famous Peugeot mechanism before being polished to a high finish and sent to be hallmarked at the London Assay Office where it is hallmarked around the base. It is slightly chunkier than our other 4-inch pepper mills to accommodate the Peugeot mechanism.

The mechanism that Peugeot supply us for our pepper mill has a reputation for being the best in the world and has a lifetime guarantee. It is designed specifically to deal with peppercorns; is made from the highest quality materials and because it provides a perfect grinding consistency time-after-time, is the choice of leading chefs worldwide.

Peugeot have been making pepper mills and coffee mills for longer than they have been making cars. In 1810 the Peugeot brothers converted the family mill to produce steel and in 1842 one of their engineers designed a mechanism specifically designed to mill peppercorns – it is not suitable for milling other spices. It can be adjusted, enabling pepper to be ground to every requirement - roughly for a grilled steak to finely ground for delicate sauces.

The mills are made at Besançon, in South West France. A helix-shaped double row of teeth guides the peppercorns and holds them during grinding. The corns are cracked in half before the fine grinding process. The mill mechanism is made from case hardened steel, a tempering process that makes the grinding head as hard as a ball bearing and it is this and the exact machining that gives the mill its long term performance.

Within the mechanism, Peugeot create two different size grooves, the first for channeling and the second for grinding. The channeling grooves line up the peppercorns and crack them, while the grinding grooves do the grinding to the selected fineness that you can choose by adjusting the button on the mill.

Generations of experience in making their pepper mills allows Peugeot to provide a lifetime guarantee – this does not cover normal wear and tear, misuse or accidental damage. Do not use it for grinding salt as salt is corrosive and can even damage the work of art that is the Peugeot pepper mill. Do not confuse this pepper mill with silver plated versions you will find elsewhere on the web. This one is made in solid silver and, as already mentioned, is hallmarked. We wouldn't put such a fine mechanism in a second-class container!

A "P" engraved on the top button of the pepper mill differentiates it from its companion piece, our 4-inch Peugeot salt grinder. We can engrave both the pepper mill  and salt mill with a message, name(s) or anniversary date.

The Pepper Mill is wrapped in tissue paper and delivered to you in a handsome black presentation box.
