Peugeot Mill Test of Recommended peppercorn and salt crystal brands

7th March 2014 11:10

Q Was this test ever published online? Peugeot promised list of recommended peppercorn and salt crystal brands

A I had forgotten about that promise of a list! I agree that it would be useful. The UK distributors for Peugeot mills changed so action lists got lost, I suspect. I never received a list from the previous Peugeot representatives. I will chase the new distributors and see if they have one!

The rough guide for the right kind of peppercorn is:

  • about 5mm diameter
  • hard and dry

So steer clear of the very big corns which can get lodged in the grinding chamber, or prevent smaller corns falling in an even flow into the chamber. Some of the coloured corns can be very soft, too, so can clog or not grind particularly well.

In terms of salt crystals, if you hold a crystal between thumb and forefinger and you cannot crush the crystal, then you should be fine!
