Should I oil my CrushGrind Oblique Pepper Mill - Beech?

13th November 2013 11:34

Q I have just bought a CrushGrind Oblique Pepper mill in beech from you and was wondering whether I should mineral oil the wood to prevent fingerstains as the finish is not varnished? The mill works beautifully!

A Thankyou for your enquiry and glad that you like the mill. I have checked with the UK importers of the mill and they advise that unless you repeatedly use the mill with hands that are carrying dark oils/colours, then you should not have a problem with staining anyway. The mill will naturally darken slightly with time but to avoid any unevenness then try not to handle too much with very dirty hands. Mineral oil would not prevent staining as it is a permeable membrane. Only varnish would prevent staining but customers tend to prefer the natural matt wood so this is the style of the mill.

Hope this helps - Best wishes Claire
