What kind of peppercorns should I use in a Peugeot Pepper Grinder?

14th January 2011 15:26

The standard Peugeot Pepper Grinders should be filled with standard size black peppercorns. By standard size, I mean approx 5mm or less across. If all or some of the peppercorns are bigger then they do not fall evenly into the grinding chamber and the result can be an intermittent grind.

Regarding the colour of the peppercorns, this relates more to texture than colour. The coloured peppercorns tend to be softer in texture and can cause clogging in your grinding mechanism. The black peppercorns are very hard and there will not be this problem but you can always try a type of coloured pepper to find out if it works or not. The mills can be unclogged with a small brush - don't immerse then in water though. Here are the product care details showing you how to clean your pepper grinder:
