Which Salt Grinder would you recommend for Cornish Sea Salt?

Dear Clive

I emailed the Cornish sea salt company. There reply is below and confirms what I would also have advised you if just on an educated guess. The Crushgrind ceramic grinders are the mills recommended by the Malden Seasalt company as well.

I would also recommend a wooden mill, rather than acrylic or stainless steel as a wetter sea salt tends to be very corrosive and can mark non wooden mills. Here is a link the CrushGrind Capstan Mill which is recommended by Malden - and which I would recommend for Cornish Sea Salt based on their email below:

Cornish Sea Salt is in a crystal form and has been likened to Fluer de Sel by Mark Hix. Although it does have a slightly damp texture which crumbles easily between the fingers it is not as damp as a sel de guerande.

Through testing we have found that ceramic grinders work best with Cornish Sea Salt. We have found ‘crush grind’ ® mechanisms the best are you familiar with these?
