Peugeot Mills

PSP Peugeot USA

The difference between Peugeot pepper mills and salt mills is in the mechanisms.

Pepper mills use durable case-hardened steel, for its exacting machining and long term performance. Through case hardening, the grinding head is tempered to the point where it becomes as hard as a ball bearing.

Peugeot MechanismPeugeot pepper mill grinding mechanisms (shown raw at left) have two different size grooves: Channeling and Grinding. Channeling grooves (the larger ones) are designed to line up the peppercorns and to crack them. The Grinding grooves (the smaller ones) do the actual fine grinding process.

The larger grooves are still individually hand cut into the mechanism using the techniques utilized in the 1842, when the mechanism was first created by Peugeot.

Peugeot - Made in France since 1840Teeth in the grinding mechanism will not lock together, as in other mills, because the number of teeth are different on the grinding head and on the outer ring. This allows for the fine powder grind that is not available on other mills, and does not grind metal with the peppercorns, unlike most other mills.

The durability of these mechanisms and their proven track record allows Peugeot to provide a lifetime guarantee on the grinding mechanisms, even when used commercially. Note that rust is not covered under this warranty; prevent rust by keeping the mill dry and don't use it for salt.

Peugeot Pepper & Salt Mechanisms Salt mills (on the right) use a commercial grade of 18/10 stainless steel that is used in the chemical industry, to help keep the salt from corroding the grinder mechanism. It is also further treated to prevent corrosion. Developed in 1995, the stainless mechanism in salt mills is guaranteed for life.

Hardened steel vs. stainless steel. For pepper mills, case-hardened steel is preferred over stainless because of its greater hardness, and therefore its ability to maintain sharp burrs over a much longer period of time than stainless. Though hardened steel can rust, under normal use a pepper mill will not come in contact with water to make it rust. For salt, however, never use a hardened steel mill, since salt is highly corrosive.

Physical Vapor Deposition, or (PVD), is used to treat mechanisms on pepper mills. PVD is a group of surface treatments at the atomic level that add surface protection and resistance to wear. The process is similar to electroplating, but without any chemical reaction, less hazardous materials and waste, and is thus more environmentally friendly.

PVD can be used on most metals, and even some plastics, and include treatment by the addition of metal oxides, nitrides, carbides and other such materials to the surface. In thin layers, PVD can replace some painting applications for decorative purposes. PVD is generally highly abrasion resistant, has a high temperature strength, and can be harder and last longer than hardened and stainless steels.

Filling - Remove top nut and cover to fill, then replace cover and nut. Turn mill upside down to get peppercorns or salt out of the mechanism, and turn top nut clockwise to tighten loosely. To grind, turn cover in a clockwise direction. (Never put moist salts in salt mills, or they will clog.)

Cross Section of Peugeot Pepper MillThe Grind - All mills are easily adjusted for different size grinds. Loosen top nut (counterclockwise) to obtain a coarser grind. To return to a finer grind, turn mill upside down and turn cover a bit (counterclockwise) to get peppercorns or salt out of the mechanism, then loosely tighten top nut to desired fineness. The closer the turning mechanism mechanism is to the base plate, the finer the grind.

Maintenance - Never wash your mill and never use a pepper mill for salt. Once in a while, place a drop of mineral oil on top nut. Wipe the wood or acrylic body with a moist cloth to keep it clean. If you don't intend to use the mill for an extended period of time, remove the peppercorns or salt. (Also see below for additional maintenance and service faq's.

PSP Peugeot USAWarranty - The lifetime warranty on pepper mills and salt mills covers defects in manufacturing of the mechanism. A 2-year warranty applies to the body of the mills against any manufacturing defects. Peugeot mechanisms are clearly identified by the name imprinted on the mechanism. It also covers the mechanism against wear. Keep the mills out of water, or the mechanism may rust and the wood may crack; neither rust nor wood degradation are covered under the warranty. With pepper mills, only use hard peppercorns, or combinations of peppercorns where the hard seeds are dominant. With regular salt mills, only use dry salt crystals appropriate for grinding. With wet salt mills, only use wet salt crystals appropriate for grinding.

See a video from www.science.discovery.com on how they're made.


Tips

Click for Peppercorns pageFor freshness, use pepper a lot and it won't go stale. If you don't use a lot, only keep a small amount in your pepper mill, check it and replace it frequently. Store fresh peppercorns in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight.

Peugeot Wood Mills & ShakersClean the mechanism with a small brush, and wipe the body of the mill with rubbing alcohol or window cleaner. Unless the instructions specifically allow it, never place your pepper mill in water.

Adjust the grind to make it coarser by turning the model's appropriate screw or mechanism. To make it finer, it works best when you remove peppercorns from the mechanism.

In a pepper mill, only grind hard peppercorns. Salt is highly corrosive, and it can easily corrode steel mechanisms, so it should never be used in a pepper mill. Soft peppercorns, like the green and pink varieties, can clog the mechanism, so they should only be used when they are outnumbered by hard peppercorns.

In a salt mill, only use dry salt crystals intended for grinding. Wet salt crystals will clog mechanisms intended for dry crystals. and should only be used in mills intended for that purpose.

For best taste, review our guide to the different types of peppercorns, on our Peppercorns page

Additional Maintenance
& Servicing Information

Old peppercorns. If pepper has been in the mill for a long time, it is possible that the peppercorns have become soft and possibly moldy, or that they have caked in the mechanism, preventing grinding. I recommend taking it apart for cleaning, by removing the two very small bottom screws; remember how it comes apart, for ease in putting it back together. Clean out the mechanism and the hollow of the wood. You might use some rubbing alcohol to clean the wood. Make sure you dry the mechanism well. Allow the wood to dry thoroughly before reassembling. And always use fresh peppercorns.

Peppercorns that are too large. If they can't fit in the wide part of the mechanism, it can't grab and crack them. A little bit of pepper might come out, but not much. You can check this by removing all the peppercorns, and reinserting only the smallest ones. Grind and see if that made the difference.

Too fine a setting. Unscrew the top nut about a quarter to half turn and grind.

If you purchased the mill from Fante's and all the above are ruled out as causes of any problems you may be experiencing, then you may wish to return the mill to us. If the mill mechanism is found to not be defective (perhaps just in need of normal maintenance), a modest return shipping charge of $5 to $10 (depending on shipping weight) must be paid prior to its return.

If it is not possible to return the mill to the original selling retailer, importer or manufacturer, you may send it to us for evaluation, at the address below.

When sending it to us, insure it for its value, and please enclose a letter of explanation, together with your complete name, address, and where we may reach you during the day. We will, at our option, replace (with the same or comparable model) or repair mills with defective mechanisms that were purchased from us.

If you did NOT purchase the Peugeot mill from Fante's, you should contact the retailer who sold it to you.

PSP SAS, the parent company for the Peugeot brand, licenses the mechanism to multiple qualified manufacturers that produce the beautiful bodies of Peugeot mills. For additional information on service that you may need for your Peugeot mill, contact Peugeot's US subsidiary and warranty service center:
