The Cole & Mason 8.5 inch Hampstead Electric Salt and Pepper Mills are modern all the way and cook-friendly. (These easy mills are easy to use one-handed so you won’t have to set something down; just grab and grind!) Unlike others, this pepper mill uses Cole & Mason’s Precision hardened steel millworks for superb quality and long life. An automatic LED light helps you see exactly how much is being produced and an easy adjustment sets the grind perfectly with the knob on the bottom, from very fine to very coarse. With this battery operated pepper mill, a simple twist of the body opens the chamber for easy refills. Powered by six AAA batteries. Style, durability, and dependability have been built into every Cole & Mason product since 1919 using the best materials and mechanisms; our products have been well-regarded by professional cooks and homemakers ever since. Count on Cole & Mason to give your table pepper grinder a touch of class!
