Product Description

Size: 18 Inch | Color: Natural

Paris U Select MillPEUGEOT mills are made in France, since 1810. Peugeot mills are renowned by chefs and gourmet cooks the word over for the consistent grind results they produce, their incredible resilience and proven reliability. For each spice, there is one and only one Peugeot grinding mechanism: peppercorns; coarse dry salt; chilies; herbs and spices; wet salts; and nutmeg. Each is designed to derive the most flavor and greatest aroma from its complementary spice. Aesthetically pleasing, Peugeot mills deliver the height of quality, durability, reliability and innovation; making these mills the ones to which all others are compared. The high quality beech wood used in Peugeot mills is grown, harvested, dried, shaped and finished in France. For Paris u'Select mills, the grind is adjusted by turning the ring at the bottom of the mill. Turning the ring in one direction makes a finer grind; turning in the other makes it coarser. Once the grind size is set, it will stay in place until the user changes it. This mill is equipped with Peugeot's exceptional salt grinding mechanism: it is unlike anything else on the market. Its two ribbed plates are made from a stainless steel blend that offers resiliency, rigidity and resistance to corrosion from dry salts. When the mechanism is activated, the ribs work to twist and fracture each salt crystal to the desired size. Features include:  Mill is 18cm tall, natural finish Salt crushing mechanism is made of high quality specially treated stainless steel Mechanism materials and design resists corrosion from dry salts and minimizes wear Patented u'Select grind adjustment found at the base of the mill; 6 pre-defined grind settings, or any point in between: powdery-fine to very coarse Made in France Also available in 18cm, 22cm and 27cm

The "word of warning" noted in another review should not be taken lightly. Shortly after receiving this product, it began to show small cracks towards the bottom, which became larger and larger. Thinking this was a fluke - I returned it, and got a replacement. Unfortunately, the cracks began to appear again. The cracks are not just a cosmetic problem - when they start to appear, the salt mill stops working properly. For the price of this product, it should not have so many problems - our cheap plastic mill that is sold at Trader Joe's works better!

The unfinished bottom of these mills "might" wick up moisture from a damp surface which could cause wood joinery seams to fail. To avoid this possibility, take a few minutes to apply a modest coating of cooking oil to seal the wood. Peugeot makes a wonderful grinding mechanism that should perform flawlessly for you for many years.

Update 2/12: Why use a salt grinder? Because very finely ground sea salt seems to add more flavor than a much larger amount of salt crystals IMHO. Also, sealing the bare wood seems to have done the trick without affecting function one whit. Now if we don't drop it on the floor as someone else recounted, it should last a lonnng time. BTW - Caution: This item qualifies for super saver shipping. Be sure to change from the default shipping setting before finalizing your transaction! Join me in encouraging Amazon to set super saver shipping as the default choice, to avoid the appearance of a deceptive practice of inserting undesired shipping charges for what should be an "upgrade" option.

7/1/12 Ring cracked as others reported. The grind adjustment mechanism is a great idea but poorly executed, as the wooden ring is too thin! It cracks where the woodgrain is radial. Happened to note the crack before the opposite side broke; so I could put a dab of wood glue and clamp it to repair the crack. If you look at the underside, where the wood meets the plastic ring; this is the area that would benefit from an added layer of wood glue to strengthen the wood, especially where the natural grain lies at an angle 90 degrees to the outside surface.

Color Name: BrownSize Name: 9" Salt Mill
I purchased this item while visiting a friend out of state so I was unable to return it to the store. If I had known what an ordeal this would be I never would have purchased it. I bought matching salt and pepper mills.

After four months of average use the salt mill cracked on the bottom. I immediately contacted Peugeot. Peugeot's customer service was horrible. The woman on the phone accused me of dropping it because she said she has never heard of any of their mills breaking. I told her that there were several reviews online stating this exact issue and she still claimed that she had never heard of this the entire time she worked at Peugeot.

She then told me that I would have to pay to ship the product to their business and they would asses whether it would be repaired. If it was determined the break was my fault it would not be repaired. If the product was determined to be defective it would take at least a month for it to be returned to me. For the price this is ridiculous. I will not be purchasing any Peugeot products in the future. At this point, my salt mill is useless. The crack is large and the salt mill no longer works properly.

If you have Le Creseuts, All Clads, Rösle, etc. this is part of your kitchen basics.

While all those brands tend to be priced higher, they are also offer higher utility than their generic counterparts.

I first ordered the pepper mill and not this accompanying salt mill, thinking all I need is the pepper mill. But I also use Brittany Salt and it was getting annoying to use a tiny spoon for it.

Both the pepper mill and salt mill is easy to use and feels great weight when using.

This is the best saltmill I have ever owned or used. It's very sturdy and should hold up well for many years. The best feature about this mill is the ability to choose the courseness of the grind by rotating the base rather than turning the screw at the top. Mills that only allow adjustment by the top screw are a pain because the grind always seems to come out of adjustment. It looks and works great. Word of warning. I was originally shipped a Peugeot mill that was identical except that it wasn't a u-select, meaning you couldn't adjust the grind at the base. Amazon customer service was great and sent me the right mill. But be sure you get the u-select and not an older or cheaper model.

Note the amendment below in which I qualify my earlier favorable assessment of this product.

This is another generally high quality and precision Peugeot cooking tool which is a pleasure to use.

Note: it should only be used with "dry" salt: coarse sea salt or mined rock salt. They make another grinder for "damp" salt, as it has the potential to corrode the grinding surfaces.

This is a well made tool which feels good in your hand to use.

A particularly useful feature is the U'Select control- with the twist of the collar at the base of the grinder, you can adjust the fineness or coarseness of the grind.

While it is a pleasure to use in the kitchen, it also looks good on the dinner table!

There is a matching pepper mill as well.

An excellent investment for cooking pleasure!

Amendment November 12, 2014: I rerated this product from 5 stars to 3 stars. Why? As other contributors have reported, the wooden grinder adjustment ring at the base of the grinder is liable to cracking.

It is unfortunate that Peugeot has not resolved this issue after several years of manufacturing this product.

The functionality is not impaired, but the cracking of the wood does detract from the the aesthetics of this otherwise excellent product. It's a pity about this design flaw.
