Claire - Salt and Pepper Mills PLUS

Introducing the Cole & Mason PRECISION range

5th March 2012 14:20

I am pleased to announce that we have just introduced a new range to our shop, from Cole & Mason

The Cole & Mason PRECISION mills are the top end of the Cole & Mason salt and pepper mills - not to be confused with the cheap Cole & Mason mills that can be found in supermarkets.

We are stocking the special offer PRECISION salt and pepper mill sets, plus the very, very top end PRECISION, the PRECISTION GOURMET. Explanation of the difference below!!

The new PRECISION mechanisms have won awards for innovation, and are a very welcome and impressive upgrade in the Cole & Mason mill mechanism in terms of design and quality. I have refused to stock Cole & Mason mills in the past because I thought that the range was synonymous with cheap mills that really don't work well enough. I still think that the bottom end mills aren't worth buying, but the PRECISION range marks a real change. The pepper mills have a carbon steel mechanism and the salt a ceramic mechanism. This is exactly the combination that most high end mill manufacturers are now opting for. Whilst in terms of the quality of the mill bodies as compared with Peugeot, Peugeot are still more impressive - the black gloss shines more, the acrylic sparkles like glass - nevertheless the Cole & Mason PRECISION represent a very good price for a good mill.

Other good features in the mills:

  • High volume through put, so more pepper or salt for less grind
  • Mechanisms cut rather than crush, so retaining more flavoursome oils in your pepper
  • High quality of the materials used - stainless steel bottom bar and spindle, for example rather than plastic
  • Lifetime (25 year) warranty on the mechanism

The Cole & Mason PRECISION GOURMET are the very best mills in the PRECISION range, with a spring loaded selector for choosing the fineness or coarseness of the grind, in addition to the PRECISION mechanisms which actually grind the pepper and salt. Slightly confused marketing, I think, from Cole & Mason, but there you go.
