    Pepper mill or Grinder

    Our pepper mill has given up the ghost tonight, grinding mechanism sheared off. I have done a quick search for recommendations on here but couldn't find anything. Any suggestions for a long lived, adjustable grind pepper mill. Using the pestle and mortar tonight.

    Thanks in advance

    Looks similar to the one we had that failed. Peugeot looks favourite.

    Weíve had one of these around 3 years now

    Bit of a gimmick but itís been superb allowing you to use one had when turning a steak over for example or whilst stirring salt it to a soup etc.

    I have not read this, but it may be helpful. It was updated yesterday, by coincidence:

    The wife has had a few of the battery powered or rechargeable Peugeot grinders, but recently picked up a spice boy grinder (oer missus) - so simple to fill, highly adjustable, and best of all no batteries.

    We've got these - they seem very well made and we're very pleased with them.

    I appreciate that this doesn't fit in with the forum artisan product discussions, but Ive had and tried loads of pepper mills, granted not the high end ones mentioned here, but my favourite by far is this humble offering, probably from Lidl or Aldi, its refillable and a nice chunky coarse grind, obviously it won't last forever before performance drops off, but at a couple of quid with pepper its great value!
    Cheers..

    as above- you dont need a lifetime warrantee for a peppermill imo , buy a cheap one that does the job and throw it in the bin and buy another when it stops working.

    Cole and Mason for me.

    Used every day and it is still going strong after 15 years. When it dies, I will just buy the same one again.

    Surely there's a £750 corn to plate machine that makes pepper taste 1000 better than a plastic grinder that someone considers the only option (with freshly picked organic corns at £100 a 100g, obviously)?

    Ordered a Peugeot U select in wood should be here Sunday. Thanks for all the suggestions. Hopefully it will last longer than the plastic one that gave up yesterday.

    There's the Peugeot / Lalique salt and pepper grinders - a mere snip at £1350 a pair...

    Good choice, just watch with the U select. Iíve 3 standard and 3 U select. The wood at the base, where it sits on the counter or the wooden stand in our case is very thin and needs to be treated carefully or it can crack. Doesnít affect the grinding.
    Youíll enjoy it. Cracking grinder.

    Yep- ours has cracked but has affected the ability to alter the grind size. It appears to be stuck on a medium size and canít be altered as the base just turns.

    If thatís the case, Peugeot offer a lifetime warranty, might be worth checking that route. Must say I prefer my three standard grinders. Over the three U select.

    I echo posts above. Peugeot mechanism is a must. My mum and dad used to have a beautiful willow pattern china mill that was such a thing to use, weighty, great grinding, but they dropped it. I've been looking for the same thing for years, found nothing.

  36. #36
    Of all the things I thought I'd buy as a result of reading some random thread on TZ a couple of Peugeots weren't on the list...

    Helped me make a splendid risotto earlier today (stock out of shot)!

    Word of caution On your Peugeot Chocolate Paris U select grinder. Treat the best gently and donít drop it. The wood surrounding the mechanism is thin and prone to cracking. The normal grinder like your beech Paris one are as tough as old boots.

    I've just double checked one against the other and the pepper grinder looks to be thicker around the grinder area than the salt one though I shall still take heed of your advice, thank you.
