These stylish mills feature precision-grinding mechanisms built to deliver more flavor with fewer turns. An elegant addition to any tabletop, each mill features a stunning stainless steel finish.

The salt mill’s ceramic grinder offers three settings from fine to coarse—ensuring the ideal texture every time. The pepper grinder has six settings for everything from a light dusting to crumb-size granules. Rather than simply crushing the peppercorns, an innovative carbon steel mechanism strips them down by their individual layers. As the different flavors within layers are released, they blend to deliver the fully rounded, intense flavor of the peppercorns.

Established in 1919, Cole & Mason is passionate about the art of perfect seasoning, pairing classic styles with modern innovation to help home cooks get the most out of their spices. Mills sold separately.

Ok so if you are looking for a great set of salt and pepper mills look no farther. Both the salt and pepper have several grind settings, more for pepper than salt, with a twist of the lower portion. The acrylic container allows you to see what is in there very nice when filled with exotic salts.
The Salt is not a stainless grinder, it is ceramic, but still has a lifetime warranty and will grind with popcorn salt finest. On the coarsest setting is crunchy but not too big.
The pepper has a more setting from very fine up to nice and coarse, for things like rolling the rim of burgers in or for steaks.
I will offer anyone looking at mills on sur la tables site the price even though it looks like it is for a set is per mill... Imagine my surprise when I got to the store to buy them.
Over all great set will perform as well as any of the other more expensive mills and look great to boot

Best yet
I've tried many salt and pepper mills over the years. These are by far the best I've used yet. The grind is easily adjustable over a wide range, and it stays put while you grind. Both salt and pepper can be ground finer than other grinders, which is needed occasionally. The mechanism seems very well built, though I have only had them for a couple of weeks so can't really comment on reliability. Highly recommended

Best Salt & Pepper Mills Ever!!
I purchased these to replace my expensive Peugeot S & P mills. The Cole and Mason mills work beautifully and are good looking too!

My pricey Peugeot mills left salt & pepper reside on the counter after using, but not a problem with the Cole & Mason S & P mills!

These were highly recommended by America's Test Kitchen which is where I go to check reviews on gadgets and culinary supplies.

Affordable and a pleasure to use! Love 'em!

Well designed pepper grinder
I've had this pepper grinder for quite a little while. It has several nice features to it that make it stand above the rest.

First, the coarseness of the pepper can be easily adjusted by turning a dial on the bottom of the shaker. Unlike most shakers, you don't have to tighten a knob on top and guess for the coarseness.

Second, this seems like the only pepper mill with the easy coarseness adjustment that also has clear sides so you can visually tell when it is getting empty.

The mill is easy to refill. The top just pops off instead of having to unscrew anything. My only complaint could be that the top could be designed to pop off a little easier with a push button release for elderly people with arthritis. But for those without arthritis I think it should be fairly easy to remove.

It also grinds very well and is quite attractive sitting in your kitchen

Broke in less than a year
I really liked this pepper mill until it broke. We've owned it for less than a year. Plastic parts on something that is used to grind something like peppercorns that have resistance is not a good idea. Perhaps this mill is for those that do not cook as often or as much as I do. Very disapointed as I researched these prior to purchase and this is supposed to be one of the best.
On the good side the different grinds was excellent

Great pepper mill
I am very pleased with this purchase. I bought it based on the recommendation from America's Test Kitchen,they also recommended Sut La Table as the company to buyit from. The mill works great, it is easy to adjust the coarseness of grind. The grinder is easy to use, and produces even sized particles. It is attractive on the counter and table. It even arrived loaded with peppercorns, although not a full load. The web site for ordering was easy to navigate, ordering was a snap, and the product arrived a few days earlier than projected. A very good purchase, I highly recommend this product and Sur La Table

Nice Grinding mechanism
These mills are very nice! They have a very smooth grind and it's nice to see the level of salt and pepper as you use it. It's very easy to refill.

Number one Grinder
I wanted to add my thumbs up to the many other positive product reviews for this grinder. I was in the market to replace my Peugeot grinder so, as I usually do, I went to the equipment reviews at ""America's Test Kitchen"" and saw that this grinder was rated number one. Reviews were good, so I took a chance. THis product, in both its pepper and salt models, is as promised. It is easy to hold and operate, stylish on the table, and produces great grinds. Both the salt and pepper consistently grind to the level set for. I recommend this grinder and Sur-la-table without reservation
February 22, 2013
I absolutely am glad I splurged on these salt and pepper mills. They are so easy to use and look stunning next to my stove. I love that there are 3 adjustable sizes and you can see if you are getting low on salt or pepper.

Although I rated it a 5 star product, the stainless steel gets smudges on occasion

Too small
Works very well , but it's too small. I use it everyday cooking, not on the table.

I had ordered a salt and pepper mill from William Sonoma and they sent the pepper one and told me the salt was on back order. Weeks went by and then they said they could not get it and that I should go to their store to purchase. Being that the nearest store is 45 min. away I decided to see if Sur La Table had it and yes you do, so thrilled!

Is the price of $40 includes both salt and pepper?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No, they are $40 each I believe. That is why there is a selection dropdown to pick either salt or pepper
How small does the salt granules need to be?

I use Himalayan Pink salt which comes in bigger pieces than normally purchases sea salt. Will this work with this grinder?
A shopper on May 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Cole and Mason simply states ""Fill with coarse sea salt or rock salt (not with salt flakes).""Pink Himalayan salt can be used in this salt mill, but I would suggest that you use the smallest granules you can find
ATK recommends batch number 140228 or higher, due to a problem with "painted on dots" wearing off. This is a problem that was fixed by the company. How do I ensure that I'm getting a grinder that is in a later batch?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Shop in a retail Sur la Table store. Per ATK, "To determine whether a mill has the etched-on dots, check the batch number, which you can find printed on the swing tag, above the UPC, or on a product sticker. The number should be 140228 or higher."
Is this battery operated?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Stainless-steel and acrylic mill is perfect for salt and pepper. Simple-to-use mill cleans up easily with a damp cloth. 7_"".This mill is not battery operated
Is the cole masson pepper mill $40 model number H59401G
A shopper on Oct 5, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this Cole & Mason Pepper Mill is model #H59401G
Does anybody know how to refill it ?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you pop the top off then pour the salt or pepper in. There is no need to unscrew it or anything like that. It is pretty simple to refill

Will these mills leave salt and pepper powder on the table?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes, it's a small amount of residue, but he grinder works well if you can get accustomed to holding the grinder on the bottom versus the top. BUT all grinders leave a bit of their contents after grinding, so need not worry. They (both pepper and salt) are very attractive on the table.
How does the acrylic portion of the pepper mill hold up to every day use. Scratches? I thought it was glass when I saw it in the store. Worried it will scratch and dull.
A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used mine regularly for well over a year. Not a scratch on it and so far the acrylic is still nice and clear. I wipe it off with a soft dish cloth and dish soap bubbles. I like it so well that I have given several as gifts.
Could you use regular table salt in one of these?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You need to use coarse or rock salt. Regular table salt is already pretty fine so it defeats the purpose of using a mill.
