of France created the pepper grinder in 1842, long before it made motor cars. The patented design of the
grinding mechanism created by a company engineer for the first Peugeot pepper
mills is still in use today, virtually unchanged. Often copied, but never
equaled, the mechanism made of case hardened steel is designed to crack
the peppercorns before the actual fine grinding process. The grooves on
a Peugeot mechanism are individually cut into the metal, and then case hardened,
making them virtually indestructible. The salt mill features a stainless steel mechanism that resists corrosion. Thanks to their proven designs, both mechanisms are Backed by Lifetime Warranties. Peugeot grinding mechanisms are the choice of food
professionals and discerning cooks around the world.
The Peugeot pepper mills and salt mills will provide years of reliable service in the kitchen and at the table. They also make a terrific gift for special friends and relatives.
With a mechanism that hard, the simple action of grinding peppercorns will
not deteriorate the mechanism in any way.
Hence the Unlimited Guarantee on the Peugeot pepper mill mechanism
