Which Salt Mill should I use for "Wet" Sea Salt?

Q Which Salt Mill should I use for "Wet" Sea Salt? I notice that the Peugeot Salt Mills say I can't use wet salts in them.

A We get asked this question a lot. We used to advise people to buy the Peugeot Vendome Sel de Guerande or "Wet" Sea salt grinder, but actually, this is one area where I think that the Peugeot grinder is not the best on the market. Maldon sea salt recommend the wooden CrushGrind ranges with a ceramic mechanism which is naturally corrosion resistant. I now recommend a wooden CrushGrind mill as well, as from experience, I think customers have fewer problems with the wetter salts clogging them. All the CrushGrind mills have the same ceramic mechanism so you could use any CrushGrind, but I have known the wetter salts corrode the metal bodied mills so that they look a bit unsightly. Therefore I would stick to a natural wood mill. Here are the links:
