This Peugeot Paris Pepper Mill stands 7" high and has a red lacquer finish.The grinding mechanisms of Peugeot pepper mills have grinding and channeling grooves cut into the metal. The channeling grooves (the larger ones) are designed to line up the peppercorns with the grinding grooves (the smaller ones) and to crack the corns in half before the actual fine grinding process. These grooves are individually cut into the metal, which is then case hardened, making the grinding nut and head as hard as a ball bearing.Features of the Peugeot peppermill mechanism include: 2 stage channeling and grinding process. Cracks the peppercorns before they are ground, giving you the freshest and most flavorful taste. Adjustable mechanism from fine to coarse. Lifetime warranty on the mechanism. To refill Peugeot peppermills: Unscrew the metal knob and remove the top Fill the grinder up to the mark with pepper Replace the top and screw on the metal knob *Remember: The tighter the screw is, the finer the pepper will be ground.Caring for your Peugeot: Do not expose to heat Wipe with a damp cloth Store in a dry place Do not put in dishwasherImportant Note:Variations in the red lacquer are common. If you are making a set (buying both a salt and pepper mill), the color of the two mills will likely be slightly different.
