Add Spice to your Thanksgiving with Peugeot Spice Grinders

There’s nothing quite like fresh ground spices. Hail to the salt and pepper mills which grind every day and overtime at holidays.

To this day Peugeot pepper mills, made in France, set the standards for great chefs while offering a lifetime warranty on all grinding mechanisms. The patented U-Select system allows you to adjust the grind from extremely fine, for powerful flavor, to very coarse, for strong aromas (Six pre-sets for you to choose from).

SAVE 10% on all Peugeot mills for the month of October

Peugeot Spice Grinders

Our Customers Ask:

Can you grind salt in a pepper mill?

Salt and pepper mills are each made with different metal mechanisms. The salt will corrode the metal components in a pepper grinder. The exception is that a ceramic mechanism will grind both pepper and salt. An exception to the exception is if you’re using wet salt which takes a different grinder altogether.

Knife Skills

Knife Skills: How to cut a squash or small pumpkin

An 8inch chef’s knife is the best knife for the job. Rest the squash to sit without rolling on the cutting board. You may use your peeler to create a flat side if there is none. Cut the squash in half at its narrowest point. Then proceed to peel, if necessary, seed and cube.
Check out the video and you’ll be a PRO!
