Buy it with
Premium salt mill made of copper and brass made in Greece by skilled artisans to the highest standards. Not only does this unique statement piece look absolutely stunning, it’s also highly functional for day-to-day use. The original design was made to grind coffee beans in the desert for Greek soldiers during the 1st world war period. Hence the materials used are very robust and durable, what makes the mills suitable for years of reliable service in the busiest kitchens.
These mills are actually salt grinders: they are designed to actually grind the salt. This unique design allows for maximum flavour and aroma, compared with common salt mills which only smash the salt, severely limiting the flavour release. Its double-row of grinders, grabs and cracks each salt flake, before drawing it down to the teeth for the perfect grind. Choose between fine and rough grinding to suit your recipe.

Prior to using your mill for the first time please pass a small quantity of salt through then discard in order to clean the inner mechanism.
- Care instructions: brass and copper are naturally resistant to corrosion, but like all metals they do slowly oxodise and change in appearance with touch, use and through exposure to moisture and oxygen in the air. This process is part of the nature of the metal and brings with it a beautiful patina of use. Over time the metal will darken and dull off in appearance. Copper can eventually develop areas of warm brown and red and brass will also darken to a reddish tone. However, if users wish to retain a bright polished look, ordinary metal polishes can be used with a soft cloth to polish the outside of the mill. Excessive exposure to moisture may lead to more extreme corrosion such as bright green-blue to grey colourations which should be removed and avoided by following the care instructions provided.
