If there's one thing we'd like to banish from kitchens across the country, it's pre-ground pepper. Why? A fresh grind releases natural aromas and flavors in the moment (which is why old-school waiters will still visit your table with a big pepper mill, offering fresh-ground pepper with a flourish). The pre-ground stuff is almost always going to be less spicy and less flavorful.

Not only are we big supporters of freshly ground pepper (and salts, because, why not?), but we're also big supporters of the iconic French-based brand Peugeot — and this set in particular.

Buy the set!

Peugeot Salt & Pepper Mill Set, $45

This beech-wood set allows for coarse or fine grind adjustments, is easy to reload, and is compact enough to tuck away in your cabinet or keep within arm's reach on your kitchen table. And the specially designed grinding mechanisms are some of the best on the market, which means they're virtually indestructible, release more of the pepper's essential oils than other grinders, and won't corrode over time.
