The Brass Pepper Mills company has produced a range of grinding mills since 1977. The design of the mills is based on a coffee mill created in the early 1900’s for Greek soldiers to use in the field. All mills are part hand-made and part manufactured in a small, family- run factory in Thessaloniki, Northern Greece. Current owner, Polivios Ioannou, is the son of the company founder.

Care & maintenance:
Care should be taken to avoid excessive exposure to moisture. Never wash or submerge the mill in water and do not put in the dishwasher. Store the mill in a cool dry place. Try to avoid grinding directly over cooking pots, as steam will dampen the salt or pepper in the mill, which may in turn clog the mechanism. If the mill becomes clogged it can be cleaned by removing the top, loosening the mechanism and cleaning it out with a small brush. The outer metal casing will naturally oxidise and change in appearance with touch and with use and through exposure to moisture and oxygen in the air. However, if you wish to keep the mill polished you can use metal cleaners suitable for brass or copper available at most supermarkets. Excessive exposure to moisture may lead to more extreme corrosion such as bright green- blue to grey colourations or ‘verdigris’, which should be cleaned off using a scouring pad, or scrubbed with a half lemon pressed into salt, then wiped clean and dry with a soft cloth.
