For several years I have tried to find a pepper grinder that actually has adjustable grind that truly works. This one does. It is simple to adjust and you can really see the different results when changing settings.

Review 2 for Peugeot Daman Acrylic Salt and Pepper Mills
Besides grinding effortlessly, my new pepper grinder is a classy, beautiful asset to my table, be it formal or casual. I would like it even more if you came out with a salt "shaker" to match, rather than the salt mill. I don't particularly like to grind salt.

This is the 6th salt/pepper grinder I've purchased. I've given them as gifts besides the set I have. They are perfect because you simply lift the top off and add the peppercorns or rock salt without struggling with a crank shaft and screw on cap. They perform as described. Different types of peppercorns work equally well by adjusting the grinding mechanism. I've had mine for several years and they continue to perform like new. We use them everyday and have 3 on the table since we like different kinds of pepper.
My Favorite BrandAny that perform their intended function with ease and convenience.

Salt and Pepper Shakers
PostedAugust 30, 2011
Pepper shaker works perfect.
Salt shaker does not work well at all. I want this replaced.
Eronomics are good.

Review 7 for Peugeot Daman Acrylic Salt and Pepper Mills
Mills are great-- packaging a problem
PostedJanuary 13, 2011
These mills are high quality and attractive, but the packaging needs work. When they arrived, the salt and the peppercorns were all over the bottom of the mailing carton. The ease of the magnetized tops is great, except that those tops come off in shipping and their contents spilled everywhere in transit. Chefs.com doesn't provide refills nor replacements.
