5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent design, exceptionally well made, beautifully packaged., 13 Aug 2013
This review is from: Cole & Mason Precision Windsor Salt & Pepper Mill Gift Set, Black Gloss (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I knew I was getting a quality product as soon as I saw the box it came in. Clearly the manufacturer is proud of their product and they package it appropriately. Still they've been making mills for nearly 100 years so they've had a bit of time to get it right.

It seems to me that this product is packaged to give as a gift, and it's certainly a gift that I would be happy to receive, so if you are looking for a wedding present this will be well received.

When I lifted the mills out of the box I thought they were plastic - they had such a high gloss shine, but a visit to their website reassured me that they are made of wood with a polymer coating. They certainly look the business - but do they do the job?

My previous pepper mill lasted me almost 40 years, though I saw no reason why it should not last forever. But the design had a flaw. I've been without a mill since it broke because I couldn't find one that wasn't built to the same flawed design.

These are different. They also have the ability to alter the coarseness of the grind. This is a tricky operation. You have to twist the little knob on top and that raises/lowers the grind mechanism so that the gap between the fixed part of the mill and the rotating part of the mill gets bigger or smaller. The little knob has nothing to grip and it seems like nothing much is happening, but it does work.

Beautifully made, look great on the table, and do the job exceptionally well.

If you buy them, you will not be disappointed.
