Product Description

Advantage of Freshly Ground Spices

There are many benefits to freshly grinding pepper, salt, herbs and spices for cooking and seasoning. A quality mill with a specifically designed grinding mechanism will release the aromas and essential oils of that spice. Freshly ground pepper and spices have more aroma and better flavor than pre- ground. Another advantage of using freshly ground spices or minerals (salts) is the control a mill provides for determining the coarseness (size) of a grind. A high quality pepper, salt or spice mill gives you the ability to choose and change the coarseness according to taste or necessity.

How to Choose a Good Mill

When looking for a pepper, salt or spice grinder, consider the following:

Grinding mechanism: Choose a grinding mechanism that can withstand daily use: one that is well made and produces a consistent grind. Ideally, the grinding mechanism should be designed to handle a specific spice, as each spice has different physical characteristics that will benefit from different design features.

Design and appearance: Whether it's traditional or modern, manual or electric, a mill can be an indispensable tool in your kitchen and a beautiful part of table decor.

Ease of Use: A quality mill should be easy to adjust, easy to fill, and feel comfortable in the hand.

History of Peugeot

Peugeot's story starts in the 19th century when the Peugeot brothers converted the family's gristmill into a steel foundry. They began producing award winning hand tools immediately after opening and went on to produce a diverse range of exceptional quality products including small appliances, bicycles and most notably, automobiles. (Although now operating as a separate company, the Peugeot car company continues the same commitment to quality and innovation that is a Peugeot hallmark). In 1840 Peugeot created their burr style coffee grinder and adopted that design to accommodate peppercorns in 1874. The resulting pepper mechanism design is still used today in every Peugeot pepper mill. Peugeot's iconic pepper grinding mechanism design is often copied, but never equaled. Today, Peugeot offers six unique spice-specific mechanisms plus the original burr-style coffee grinder. There are no shortcuts: each mechanism is designed to get the most out of the spices they are intended for. After more than 160 years, Peugeot mills and grinders remain the benchmark of the industry and have earned their position as the mill of choice in world class kitchens.

It's All About the Mechanism

The primary difference between Peugeot and all other brands are the spice-specific mechanisms. Peugeot has 7 unique spice specific mechanisms for pepper, salt, herbs and spices, coffee, wet salt, chili peppers and nutmeg. For each spice, there is one - and only one - Peugeot grinding mechanism, each made of the ideal design and constructed from the best material available for its intended use. All Peugeot mechanisms are made in France and carry a lifetime limited warranty.

Pepper Grinding Mechanism

Peugeot's Pepper Grinding Mechanism is a two stage burr-style system. During production, the helix-shaped grooves and grinding teeth of the pepper mechanism are individually cut before the steel is case hardened to make it virtually indestructible. The mechanism is then given a proprietary treatment to provide additional protection against corrosion. During use, the helix- shaped grooves guide whole peppercorns through the mechanism to crack, then grind to a consistent size by a double row of teeth. This process releases the pepper's essential oils, resulting in more flavor and aroma for your dish. This patented mechanism is found on every Peugeot Pepper mill and is widely considered the best pepper mechanism available

Salt-Mechanism

Peugeot's Salt Crushing Mechanism features two ribbed plates which work to fracture and crush coarse, dry sea salt to a consistent size. The salt grinding mechanism is made of corrosion resistant Stainless Steel, and is found on every Peugeot Salt Mill.

Spice-mechanism-Image

Peugeot's Spice Mechanism is made of ceramic, and is specially designed to grind dried spices and flat leafy herbs to release their essential oils. It is particularly effective with dried aromatic herbs such as thyme, parsley, basil, oregano, and herbs de Provence, as well as dried seeds such as cumin.

Chill-iPepper-Mechanism

Peugeot's Chili Pepper Mechanism is made of case hardened steel for optimal hardness and resilience. This patented mechanism features a pre-cutting system and dual chamber reservoir. For use with dry, hot chilis such as birds tongue, African devils and Piri Piri.

Nutmeg-Shaving-Mechanism

The Nutmeg Shaving Mechanism is made of treated stainless steel which is corrosion resistant, and offers superior edge retention. The Peugeot nutmeg shaver is equipped with a double stainless steel grater blade and a strong claw which enables the whole nutmeg to be very finely shaved, while keeping fingers safe. Intended for use with whole nutmeg nuts.

WetSeaSalt-Mechanism

Peugeot's Wet Salt mechanism has been specially designed for wet sea salt: a spiral guides the salt, ensuring that it does not stick together. The mechanism is made of ceramic because wet salt crystals are soft (wear is not an issue) but corrosive. Intended for use with damp sea salts such as Sel de Guerande.

Coffee-Mill-Mechanism

The Coffee Grinding Mechanism found in all Peugeot coffee mills is the foundation of Peugeot's grinding legacy. The case-hardened steel mechanism efficiently cracks and grinds coffee beans to the desired consistency:from espresso fine to coffee- press coarse.

So, you're looking for the reputed "top" nutmeg grinder around. Perhaps you're considering the one that is/was carried at William-Sonoma, Sur La Table, etc. This is it. Everyone who's a foodie has heard of Peugeot. Made in France, and all that.

Comes packed with the actual nuts pictured, and the fit is pretty tight with 5-6 of them in there. Replacement nuts from a local source might not fit "exactly" inside the acrylic cover, just fyi.

The grind is between fine and medium, and is only slightly adjustable depending on how much you tighten the mechanism (too loose, though, and it won't grip the nut strongly enough to work). The mechanism is nearly identical to the copy-cat version by William (WM) Bounds (see nut grinder) which also sells here for about 40% less. That one is poorer mechanically (I own both), and produces much larger shavings.

Speaking of the mechanism, it isn't perfect, and sometimes a little creative positioning of the nut may be required to get it "seated" securely to the hooked shaft to get it going. Although I have to admit to getting that nostalgic, holiday feeling when turning the grinder, I've had even better, more consistent results using a micro-plane for nuts (the small, narrow version).

This version is chrome. There is also a wood based version, though not sure if Amazon still sells it.

Peugeot Ternate Acrylic Nutmeg Grinder 11cm/4.25" We needed 2 nutmeg grinders. We had one much less expensive, perfectly adequate one but decided to buy the best -- at least the price of the Peugeot grinder indicated it must be the best, & the reviews were good. Within 4 months the screw holding the mechanism together fell out and the entire assembly lay in pieces. We figured out how to put it together, but the screw that had fallen out proved inadequate to the task (and holding the assembly together while reinserting the screw required incredible small motor coordination and dexterity). Went to the hardware store, bought a slightly longer screw & voilá. An item this pricey should be assembled better.
