The Swissmar 7″ Granite/beechwood pepper mill is both artistic and timeless, it features a beautifully crafted granite top and is carved from a single piece of wood making each piece truly unique. Color coated tops for salt and pepper – white top = salt, dark top = pepper. Natural Beechwood is imported from Germany; it is a strong, durable, high density wood that we apply a protective lacquer finish to. Each mill features a ceramic mechanism that is harder than steel, odorless, rust and corrosion proof (10 year warranty on the ceramic mechanism). They have fully adjustable grind settings for custom and consistent output, (course to fine with a simple turn of the adjustment ring) easy to assemble and fill, this multi purpose mill grinds pepper, salt, dry herbs, and dry spices. Fresh tastes better, so grind with confidence and choose a Swissmar mill.
