These heirloom-quality mills are handmade in Greece in a tradition that is over 300 years old. Unlike common mills that crush the pepper and salt, these mills actually grind for superior texture and flavor. The pepper mill features a solid steel grinding mechanism, while the salt mill features a non-corosive nylon lining and grinder. Each mill is adjustable from coarse to fine. We've used these mills daily for many years and are confident they will last for many decades to come. Also available in copper.
