A truly classic design proven to stand the test of time, it’s easy to see why this set of salt and pepper mills has been so popular for over 40 years. Originally launched in 1975, this traditional acrylic capstan mill set is elegant in its simplicity whilst still offering world-class performance. The classical timeless design paired with the unparalleled quality of Cole & Mason makes these a must-have everyday cooking tool for any kitchen. Featuring the Cole & Mason Precision mechanisms; carbon steel for pepper that strips peppercorns instead of crushing them, and diamond-sharp ceramic for salt, ensuring maximum flavour release from every turn. The hardwearing qualities of the mechanisms supported by their lifetime guarantee mean you can be assured of consistently outstanding performance for years to come. The crystal clear acrylic is not only durable and easy to clean but also adds a touch of sparkle to any dinner table setting. The mills come partially filled with premium Vietnamese black peppercorns and Belgian sea salt so are ready to use from the moment they arrive. When you do need to refill, simply unscrew the knob on the top and remove along with the acrylic top. Fill up with your favourite whole peppercorns and coarse sea or rock salt, replace the top and continue to enjoy freshly ground seasoning. The grind can be adjusted from fine to coarse by tightening or loosening the knob on top to best suit your taste.
Hints & tips: If your mill becomes difficult to grind, particularly on a fine setting, try clearing the mechanism. Turn the mill upside down, loosen the knob to the coarsest setting and twist the top. This will free any large peppercorns or salt crystals that may have become lodged. Retighten the knob to the desired setting. Do not put salt in your pepper mill as this will corrode the carbon steel mechanism.

- Clean the mill with a damp (not wet) colourless cloth and dry thoroughly
