ISO peppermill grinder

Hello,

I'm in search of the pepper mill grinder that's in the attached image. The reason I want to get it because it looks like it is very well built with heavy duty wood. I thought it was the peugeot u'select but it does not have the markings at the bottom of the wood. I got the picture from the tv show pati's mexican table on the create channel.

Does anyone own it and can tell me the name of it?

The big one is the pepper mill.

Does it have to be red or are you just looking for a solid wood mill?

Or Just guessing.... the OP's photo is a 5 in Salt Mill and 7 in Pepper Mill.....Peugeot makes a 7,9,12 and 16 inch pepper mills in the Classic Paris line. ~~
I don't find the lack of a Peugeot logo in the OP's photo unusual...which is often the case on cooking shows..Unless a 'placement fee' has been paid....

Ii can't help with that specific mill, but it's important to buy a mill that has ceramic grinders.

i've found metal grinders, even ones advertised as stainless steel, eventually get rusty.

Thanks Uncle Bob,

I have been thinking about the 12" peugeot model but I'm waiting to see if I can get one without the select at the bottom of the mill.

I have this one and love it. Appearance aside, this mill holds a ton of peppercorns, is easy to load and can grind lots of pepper quickly.

The wood used to make many pepper mills is not particularly dimensionally stabile. For the past ten or so years. I've been using a British acrylic housed Cole & Mason for my black Tellicherry pepper and a French Perfex for my white pepper. I prefer the crank handled Perfex, but for the price, cannot fault the Cole & Mason. The cutters of both are standing up quite well and, for average household use, only seem to require a cleaning once every 10 or so years. Would be nicer if the French mill had a ss instead of an aluminum body .
