For over two centuries Peugeot has been a standard for French manufacturing excellence. In 1810, the Peugeot family converted their grain mill to begin manufacturing saws. In 1818, the family patented its award-winning saw manufacturing process and by 1824, the company had diversified to a range of steel products including corset boning and springs. In 1840, the first coffee mills were introduced and in 1874, the Peugeot model Z pepper mill, whose mechanism still carries a lifetime warranty, entered the market. It wasn’t until 1890 that Armand Peugeot introduced their first petrol-driven car.
Debuting with Le Bistrot, the Milan set is the first mass-market mill designed by Peugeot Design Lab. Manufactured in eastern France, they are made with beech wood locally sourced in Franche-Comté forests and boast the unique U-Select system, which allows the user to precisely adjust the size—and thus taste—of the grounds using six size settings.
