In the world of Pepper Mills, there are two types to look at. There’s Peugeot’s line of quality pepper mills and then there’s everyone else.
Sure you can find something that grinds pepper for under $20 bucks. But there’s nothing like a Peugeot for the solid heft, smooth grinding, and satisfaction for owning a quality tool. Let’s look at some of their coolest pepper mills

Electric Pepper Mill
Do you need an electric pepper mill? Do you need a pepper mill with a light? Oh yes, you do! These are wonderful.
I remember the first time I used one. My friends in Paris were showing off this Christmas gift from one to the other. The light really helps you see how much pepper is being deposited in dark rooms. This is important as it is so fun to use that you may find yourself eating pepper with a side of pasta.

Peugeot Pepper History
This is from Amazon
PEUGEOT: France, since 1810. Peugeot mills are renowned by chefs and gourmet cooks the word over for the consistent grind results they produce, their incredible resilience and proven reliability. Compromise is not a word that fits into the Peugeot vocabulary. For each spice, there is one – and only one – Peugeot grinding mechanism: peppercorns; coarse dry salt; chilies; herbs and spices; wet salts; and nutmeg. Add the coffee mechanism, which started it all, and there are seven unique Peugeot mechanisms. Each is designed to derive the most flavor and greatest aroma from its complementary spice.
Aesthetically pleasing, Peugeot mills deliver the height of quality, durability, reliability and innovation; making these mills the ones to which all others are compared. The high quality beech wood used in Peugeot mills is grown, harvested, dried, shaped and finished in France.
For Paris Classic mills, the grind is adjusted by turning the top nut: turn it clockwise (tighten) for a finer grind; counter-clockwise (loosen) for a coarser grind. This mill is equipped with Peugeot’s legendary pepper grinding mechanism. Made of case-hardened steel, it has received additional treatment against wear and corrosion. Its double-row of helix-shaped claws grab and crack each peppercorn, before drawing it down to the teeth for the perfect grind.
