We launched the worlds first acrylic mill, the "505" in 1975. Julian Cowan, son of founder David Cowan, was inspired by a friend's dining room's acrylic doorknobs; and so an icon was born.

It has been a best-seller ever since.


Exceptionally Engineered

Featuring the Cole & Mason Precision mechanisms; carbon steel for pepper that strips peppercorns instead of crushing them, and diamond-sharp ceramic for salt, ensures maximum flavor release at every turn.

The hard wearing qualities of the mechanisms are supported by their lifetime guarantee meaning you can be assured of consistently outstanding performance for years to come.

Easily adjust the grind from fine to coarse by loosening the knob at the top. Select a fine grind for a big punch in sauces or soups or effortlessly switch to a more coarse grind for a more subtle but longer lasting taste, great for salads or steaks.


Easy To Refill

The crystal clear acrylic is not only durable and easy to clean but also adds a touch of sparkle to any dinner table setting.

The mills come partially filled with premium Vietnamese black peppercorns and Belgian sea salt so are ready to use from the moment they arrive.

When you do need to refill, simply unscrew the knob on the top and remove along with the acrylic top.

Dear sirs,
I can't believe instructions on how to fill, adjust the coarseness, and cleaning and care did not come with the item. That is a sad state of affairs for you. Going on line to read how simple it is could have been included on the packaging or a simple slip. Instead you use an enormous amount of plastic, which is not recyclable. Time to wake up. Use recyclable materials please.

Pepper Mill

Product arrived in great shape. It even included pper corns

It works well, grates very fine to corse- For the money, it is a keeper

Wonderful set

I love this set of salt & pepper mills. Ive had them for years, and they have never clogged even in the humid summers. They are easy to use and refill. Unfortunately, my new lab puppy managed to grab the salt off the counter and destroyed the bottom of it, so it no longer works. If he hadnt, Im sure they would have lasted for many more years.

505 Pepper mill

Excellent product for my needs. Good size prevents pepper or whatever spice inside from going stale because you don't have a huge amount to use, and refill it more frequently with fresh spices. I can see how much and what kind of pepper/spice is inside. Its easy to adjust the grind, however, the adjustment knob being on the top of the mill where you hold it to grind may accidentally change the size as you use it-not a problem for me. Easy to clean and won't break if dropped, sending glass all over your cooking area. The price is equal to the product. I ordered several and filled each one with different combinations of whole or partly crushed spice/herb mixes so I have a fresh grind every time and don't have to whip out my mortar and pestle. I plan to buy more and would recommend to a friend.
