The utterly modern, Olive Wood Madras Manual Pepper Mill has clean, pure lines. This mill combines the perfection of an olive wood body with a stainless steel base. Ingenious, the Madras features a large capacity reservoir.
The elongated shape is elegant and minimalist. They will fit any kitchen décor and are easy to care for. Just wipe the exterior of the mill with a soft cloth to clean.

It is also easier to refill the mill.

- Use peppercorns from the piper nigrum family such as white, black (Lampong, Tellicherry, Malabar) or green
- Do not use pepper mill to grind salt, herbs, seeds, pre-ground pepper or any other spice
- Pink peppercorns may only be used as part of a peppercorn blend to a maximum of 15% pink
- Do not use pickled or brined peppercorns as they will clog the mechanism in the mill.
