With such a long, proud history, Peugeot has a lot of ancestry to draw on. This silver plated beauty is a reproduction of the model "Z" pepper mill first manufactured in 1874. It features a grinding mechanism that cracks the peppercorns before they're ground, giving you the freshest, most flavorful pepper possible-with the adjustable knob on top, you can choose your grind from fine to coarse. Mechanism is designed specifically to grind whole peppercorns, and carries a lifetime warranty. The same unyielding commitment that goes into every Peugeot pepper mill mechanism is also evident in the stainless steel salt and spice mechanisms. Peugeot grinding mechanisms are the choice of food professionals and discerning cooks around the world. They will delight the finest epicures and will provide an original touch to every table.
