Recommending a Salt Mill made in UK or Europe

3rd November 2017 10:47

Q Hello I'm looking for a salt mill , made in Europe or the UK preferably. Can you let me know which ones to consider on your website? Many thanks Marian

A Thankyou for your email. What kind of salt do you use as this makes a difference as to the mill I would recommend

Q Likely to buy hard salt for the mill. Cheers

A Hi Marian, Your best bet then is the Peugeot mills as these are made in France - these are the best mills with the best mechanism.

Or there are silver mills made in Birmingham by a family firm. These are lovely to look at, but the base mill mechanism is not as good as the Peugeot salt mills , by a long way. The Peugeot are made for heavy use in restaurants and hotels whereas the Birmingham mills are for domestic use really, usually used for special occasions.

You must only use hard salt crystals in either mills, however, not Maldon or sel de guerande or the wetter salts. Test is that a crystals cannot be broken if put between thumb and forefinger. Then that is good for these mills!

Best wishes
