Auberge model. Made by Peugeot. Since 1810. Their first pepper mills were made in 1874.  This model was first made in 1956. It is made of Beech wood.This classic shape is found in the kitchens of the greatest chefs. Its size and ergonomic shape allow it to fit perfectly in the hand, and its utility is enhanced by the u'Select grind adjustment system. (A system for selecting the grind fineness which allows exactly the desired fineness to be obtained. No less than six options are proposed for pepper and three for salt so that a dish and its seasoning are perfectly in tune with each other.)

Peugeot mechanisms:
Pepper : The pepper mechanism is equipped with a helix-shaped double row of teeth that guide and hold the peppercorns for a perfect grind.
Salt : The Peugeot salt mechanism is designed to crush coarse cooking salt. It is made of stainless steel and is resistant to corrosion from dry salt.

Which sort of pepper should be used?
To get the best results, we recommend you to use only dry, hard, whole peppercorns that are 5 mm (1/4") or less in diameter. Black, white and dry green peppercorns can be ground in Peugeot pepper mills. The pink berries can be ground only if in a blend (max 15% pink) with one of these other peppercorns. Dried coriander seeds is also suitable for the pepper mechanism.

Which salt should be used?
To get the best out of your Peugeot salt grinding mechanism, you should use: dry, coarse salts, with a diameter of 4 mm (0.16")
- sea salt
- rock salt (mined from an underground salt seam)

Do not use your Peugeot salt mill for grinding:

    • pepper or any other spice.

    • damp sea salt, also known as grey salt, (Guérande, Sel Gris, etc.). That is because its moisture content is so high that it will corrode the mill.
