Although Peugeot are now mainly known for designing and producing cars (including high end sports cars), they have been making various kinds of other tools and machinery since 1812, and were the first to make pepper mills for use at the table, back in 1874. These electric models have a motor built into the top which enable you to easily grind coarse salt with just the touch of the button on top, and are powered by 4 readily available AAA-size alkaline batteries. Their chambers are transparent, so you can see them in action and when to refill them, and they have a variable control wheel on the bottom, to set the grind level (from fine to coarse).

Product Notes:

The Salt Mill is in Strawberry Red, like the one shown on the left.

These mills are each about 7 inches tall and 2 inches in diameter, with a soft-touch finish. Their two-stage grinding mechanism is made of case-hardened steel which is designed to crack salt rocks before the actual grinding process, and is specially treated to keep the teeth razor sharp and protect them from corrosion.

Installing the Batteries

Separate the motor block from the compartment (by twisting it clockwise and pulling straight up, as explained in Usage section). Remove the motor by pushing the clips on the inside with a pointed object, such as a pen. Place 4 AAA Alkaline batteries in the battery housing, paying attention to the correct orientation of the +/- polarity markings. Reassemble.

Suggested Usage:

Filling: Remove the motor block (top two-thirds) of the unit by twisting it slightly clockwise (so the arrow indicator over the transparent section moves from the locked to the unlocked padlock icons) and pulling up. Fill the salt compartment. Replace the motor block and twist it counter- clockwise 1/8 turn to the locked position.

To adjust the grind, turn the wheel located under the mechanism: Clockwise for a finer grind; Anti-clockwise for coarser grind.

Grinding: use the on/off button on top to activate it, but do not keep your finger on the on/off switch continuously: it's better to grind in short bursts.

Cleaning: Do not immerse the mill in liquid or put it in a dishwasher. Use only a soft dry cloth to clean it; do not use cleaning products or detergent. Do not use with wet hands. (So as not to drop it.)


Only use dry sea salt crystal in the salt grinder; do not use for pepper or any other spice, or with wet sea salt or flowers of salt (e.g. Guérande, Ré, Malton, or pink salt).

Keep the mill in a dry place, away from heat or damp or icy conditions.
