The mill handle is stored inside the body. Unscrew the nut at the top of the mill, remove the cap, take out the handle, fill and then replace the cap. Put the handle on top of the mill and screw the nut down tight. Prior to first use, we recommend cleaning the mechanism by grinding a small quantity through the mill and discarding. Never wash or submerge the mill in water, as water will corrode the mechanism.
The outside of the mill will naturally oxidize and develop a patina over time through use and exposure to salt, moisture, and other environmental factors. However, if users wish to retain a bright, as-new polished look, ordinary metal cleaners can be used with a soft cloth to polish the outside of the mill. When refilling salt mills, use a dry cloth to wipe away any salt residue around the grinder cap and the body. The salt residue may cause oxidation if left on the body.
All mills listed as Pepper Mills, are made for pepper, but can also grind dry spices. Generally, it is not recommended to grind spices with a soft core or large peppercorns in these mills. Don’t use salt in the pepper mill or pepper in the salt mill. They are manufactured specifically for their type of spice. It is also not recommended to use “wet” or “grey” sea salt, or salt flakes in the salt mill because it will clog the mechanism.
