The Cole & Mason 505 Salt & Pepper Mill Gift Set is built around our precision grinding mechanism. Both mills come partially filled upon arrival. The peppermill comes with whole black peppercorns from Vietnam. The salt shaker features coarse sea salt from Belgium. 505 Salt Mills feature a diamond cut ceramic mechanism that will smoothly produce perfect size grains every time. 505 Pepper Mills implement a hardened carbon steel mechanism that does not crush peppercorns, but strips them to release the maximum amount of flavor with each turn. Conveniently select between fine or coarse granules by simply adjusting the knob featured on top. Refilling is as easy as unscrewing the same knob and pulling the top open. Matching 505 Salt & Pepper Mills are made of high quality acrylic that will last for years to come.
Established in 1919, Cole & Mason's world-renowned salt and pepper mills remain wholly designed in England. With mill designs from traditional to modern, these innovative mills not only enhance your home and food with function and optimum flavor, but bring great style as well. Every kitchen and home deserves a mill that delivers the ultimate in seasoning time and time again.
Our "Best Pepper Grinder Ever" is here with the launch of the new Cole & Mason Precision+ Mechanism. With over two years in development, this new technology brings 100 years of expertise to the table. The entire mechanism has been redesigned from the ground up with the sole purpose of releasing even more flavor!
The cutting-edge design features larger flutes that allow more pepper corns to fall into the mechanism. An innovative arrangement of grinding teeth has also been added to deliver a more consistent grind. The result is a pepper grinder with greatly increased efficiency (more pepper delivered per turn), fewer blockages and, most importantly, unparalleled taste.
Working with Nottingham University's Aroma Laboratory in the UK, we were able to verify that the new pepper mills were in the leading group for flavor release at every grind size.
All of this combines to give us our "Best Pepper Grinder Ever" and reinforces the brand as the leaders in Salt & Pepper and seasoning in general. The mills are beautifully demonstrable - pick up any competitor brand and look at the difference in output from a few turns against our new product - there will be no competition in throughput and particulate consistency. More pepper from fewer turns and our new grinding mechanism is guaranteed for life!
Incorrect storage, like leaving the mill in a damp place or leaving it outdoors could also cause rust.
Black and white peppercorns are recommended in our pepper mills. If you would like to use pink or red, use a mill with a ceramic mechanism or use our pestle & mortar.

I love this set of salt & pepper mills. Iíve 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 hadnít, Iím sure they would have lasted for many more years.

505 Salt and Pepper mill gift set
I am a self taught chef and these grinders are excellent products for my needs. I like the fact that the salt grinding mechanism is ceramic so it won't rust. Easily adjustable and can grind average size salt crystals with ease I use it with finishing salts. Good size prevents pepper or whatever spice inside from going stale because you don't have a huge amount to use, and will refill it more frequently with fresh spices for a huge amount I use a coffee/spice grinder. 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. The grinding knob is smooth so you might have trouble grinding if your hands are wet/oily. Easy to clean and wont 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 bought one salt mill and several pepper mills as a wedding gift and filled each one with a different blend of spices. I plan to buy more for different finishing salts and would recommend these products to a friend.

The Cole and Mason mill set has a great, classic look that will match with every kitchen. It is both stylish and sleek. I love that the mill is clear so you know when you will need to replace the peppercorns. The mill grinds well to where the pepper is not too fine and provides flavor to cook with. Cole and Mason is always a great brand to go with! I would highly recommend this product to my friends and family!

I have always been a huge fan of Cole and Mason and this little gem does not disappoint! It is easy to fill the peppercorns without a big mess and it adjusts to different grinds with ease. The acrylic finish is very attractive and clean looking. The size is nice too. Sometimes those taller peppermills become unwieldy and this compact size is perfect. I will definitely use this beauty!

Worth every penny!
We has a similarly-designed pair of mills, and the plastic grinding apparatus finally died. We chose these mills because they had a ceramic grinder. The results? Perfect, and perfect adjustment for fineness. Best pleased by them.
