Can I put Pepper in my Peugeot Salt mill?

11th May 2016 17:15

Q I recently bought a black Peugeot salt mill thinking it was for pepper. I didn't use it for some time, and when I did I found that salt came out, and there was an "S" at the top, so it was obviously a salt grinder. I put in peppercorns but it didn't grind very well. The place where I bought it has gone out of business so I can't exchange it. Do the salt mills have identical grinding mechanisms to the pepper mills?

A Definitely not!

If you have put peppercorns in a Peugeot salt mill the likelihood is that it will not work properly again. The reason Peugeot mills are so expensive, is because they have specific, precision mechanisms designed to be used only with one condiment.

I'm afraid you will probably have to buy a new mill.

So sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Kind regards
