Its History – Peugeot Pepper Mills

Peugeot Pepper Mills: Peugeot’s story started in the 19th century when the Peugeot brother converted the family’s gristmill into a steel foundry. They began producing award-winning hand tools immediately after opening and produced a diverse range of exceptional quality products, including small appliances, bicycles, and, most notably, automobiles. (Although now operating separately, the Peugeot car company continues to commit to quality and innovation as a Peugeot hallmark).

In 1840 Peugeot created their burr-style coffee grinder and adopted that design to accommodate peppercorn in 1874. The resulting pepper mechanism design still use in every Peugeot pepper mill. Peugeot’s iconic pepper grinding mechanism design often copies but never equals. Today, Peugeot offer six unique spice-specific mechanisms plus an original burr-style coffee grinder. There are no shortcuts: each mechanism is design to get the most out of the spices they intend for. After over 160 years, Peugeot mills and also grinders remain the industry benchmark and have earned their position as the mill of choice in world-class kitchens.
