Q: How do I change the grind setting of my mill?
A: If your mill has a knob, turn this anti-clockwise for a coarser setting or clockwise for a finer setting. The knob will either be located on the top of the mill, or on the base depending on which mill you have.
Q: Can the mechanism on my mill be replaced?
A: Mechanisms cannot be replaced as they are built into the mill. However there is a lifetime guarantee on all mechanisms.
Q: Can I put salt in my pepper mill and vice versa?
A: This depends entirely on the mechanism. Salt can only be used in a mill that has a nylon or ceramic mechanism. Salt cannot be used in a carbon steel mechanism. Pepper can only be used in a mill that has a ceramic or carbon steel mechanism. Pepper cannot be used in a nylon mechanism. The only mills where salt and pepper can both be used are if they have a ceramic mechanism.
Q: Can I put my mills in dishwashers or ovens?
A: No, Cole & Mason Mills cannot be put in dishwashers or ovens.
Q: What is the best way to clean my mills?
A: The best way to clean a mill is to use a damp (not wet), colorless cloth. After cleaning, dry the mill straight away - do not leave wet. The mechanisms should not be rinsed, submerged in water, placed on a wet surface or get wet in any way. Please do not use cleaning products on the mills, for example, anti-bacterial spray.
Q: Why has my mill gone rusty/moldy?
A: There primary reason why your mill would have rusted / produced mold, is water exposure. This includes putting the mill in the dishwasher, washing it in a sink, wiping with a damp cloth and not drying after. Incorrect storage, like leaving the mill in a damp place or leaving it outdoors could also cause rust or mold.
Q: Why has the salt in my mill become discolored and is it harmful for me to still eat the salt?
A: Your salt mill could have gotten discolored due to water exposure, food residue stuck at the base, storing in a damp place or being left on an unclean surface. We would advise that you do not eat the salt and dispose of any that may have come into contact with the discoloration. If the mechanism has discolored, it cannot be washed and should not be used.
Q: Where are Cole & Mason salt and peppercorns sourced from?
A: Our salt is currently sourced from Belgium and peppercorns are sourced from Vietnam.
Q: Can I use pink or red peppercorns in my mill?
No, red and pink peppercorns come from a berry. They naturally have more liquid, so we recommend not using these as it could corrode the mechanism.
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.
