Fresh pepper? Yes, please! When spices are dried and kept whole, their essences- the essential oils that carry their flavors-are preserved, ready to be released upon grinding as needed. And, while we admire the French waiter's commitment to those comically large sturgeon-sized grinders, this little friend is a simple, stylish workhorse conveniently sized to live stoveside or to keep tabletop for easy seasoning. Made in France since 1874, Peugeot pepper mills have a deceptively simple, ingenious grinding mechanism. During production, the helix-shaped grooves and grinding teeth are individually cut before the steel is case hardened, making it virtually indestructible-so much so that Peugeot's grinders carry a lifetime warranty on their grinding mechanisms. The two-stage groove system cracks peppercorns before grinding for maximum flavor, the simple nut unscrews the top for refilling, and the patented u'select base offers six precision grind settings from "steak a poivre" to "vichyssoise".
