The best Pepper Mills are also considered burr mills or burr grinders, which is a device used to grind hard, small food products between two revolving abrasive surfaces. Usually the device includes a revolving screw that pushes the food through. It may be powered electrically or manually. Although the pepper mill was created by the Peugeot family in 1842, its the Greeks that continue the tradition.
The wonderful Greek Pepper Mills on the market today were adapted from the Greek coffee mills used by the Greek army in the field hundreds of years ago. The grinding mechanism has been designed to actually grind the pepper rather than smash up the peppercorn which is how most other mills operate, creating a flavor and aroma second to none.
