Please note: The salt mills require regular maintenance. We recommend regular removal of the lid to check for any salt contacting metal and for any corrosion occurring between lid and body. Also check the base where metal may be in contact with salt crystals when stored. Give the area under the lid and inside lid a quick clean with dry cloth and ideally an oil with camellia oil before replacing the lid. We recommend this be done weekly.
These handcrafted mills have been produced by a family-run company based in Thessaloniki (Northern Greece) since 1977. The robust design of the mills was originally based on a portable coffee mill created in the early 1900’s for Greek soldiers to use in the field.
Brass and copper will naturally change appearance and develop an attractive patina of use over time. This normal oxidising process will occur in unpredictable ways with touch and exposure to moisture and humidity. The mills require some regular care and cleaning and the contents should be kept fresh and dry. The manufacturer provides a limited warranty, however this does not cover changes in appearance or corrosion of the mills which can be managed with regular care.
