Peugeot is a name that has been around since the 1800?s and has always signified superior quality products and craftsmanship. Peugeot is know for many fine products ranging from cars, coffee mills, washing machines, pepper mills, to wine accessories and more. The evolution of Peugeot started with brothers Jean Pierre and Jean Frederic Peugeot converting an inherited mill into a steel foundry. Thus starting the production of fine steel products that would eventually become the grinding mechanisms in their pepper and salt mills, spice grinders, and coffee mills.

Many different types of spices have caused the development of different grinding mechanisms for each one. These different mechanisms make it possible to get the most out of spices, aromas, and flavors. Of course all of Peugeot?s grinding mechanisms are designed to withstand wear and corrosion. Groves on the grinding mechanism are individually cut into the metal and then case hardened, making them practically indestructible.

Pepper mechanisms have a 2-stage channel and grinding process, which cracks the peppercorn before grinding. The shape of the double row of helicoid teeth enables the fineness of the grind to be adjusted by turning the button on the top of the mill. By adjusting the button at the top you will go from ground pepper to powdered pepper.

Salt mechanisms are designed to grind coarse, dry sea salt. The stainless steel mechanisms are treated to prevent salt corrosion. Only Peugeot has manufactured mills in this manner and are recognized as the best in the world.

Mechanisms for wet sea salt have been specifically designed for Guerande salt. Despite the sea salts high degree of humidity, a spiral shaft prevents the salt form becoming compressed. The spiral shaft guides the wet salt crystals towards the mechanism for grinding. The grinding mechanism is made of composite materials, which are not prone to saline corrosion.

Spice mechanisms are made of an exclusive material that outperforms and is less fragile then ceramic. The specific shape of this grinding mechanism helps avoid friction and is perfect for dried herbs and spices.

The nutmeg mechanism has double stainless steel blades that shave and cut the nutmeg. This process releases the nutmegs fresh aroma and enables the whole nutmeg to be grated very finely.

The chili mechanism has an exclusive patented pre-chopping system, which enables dry chili to be ground. This chili mechanism is exclusive to Peugeot only.

Coffee mechanisms have an adjustable grind for fine to coarse grounds. The old-style coffee grinder is fitted with a crank handle and a little drawer to collect the ground coffee.

Peugeot?s latest technology in salt and pepper grinding mechanisms is the u?Select. The u?Select pepper grinder has 6 different setting and the salt grinder has 3 different settings. These salt and pepper mills are precise and easy to use.

Not only does Peugeot offer the highest quality grinding mechanisms, they are also classy and beautifully crafted. You can choose from classic wood, lacquered wood, electric, stainless steel, transparent acrylic, or a combination of these materials together. Any of these mills will complement your dinning room and spice your food to perfection.
