Not only does this Copper & Brass Salt Mill look absolutely stunning, it’s also highly functional.

The interior of the Mill contains a food safe plastic grinding mechanism and stainless steel shaft to prevent corrosion.
What makes Alexander Salt Mills really stand out?
With a focus on function, whilst taking into account aesthetics each mill is equipped to grind the salt and not just smash it. This unique design allows for maximum flavour and aroma, compared with common salt mills that only smash the salt, limiting the flavour release. Each mill provides plenty of room for you to fill it with your favourite rock salt and grind directly over the food.
The grinding is done in three steps:
1st: Grabs and cracks the salt and breaks it in half
2nd: Cuts it into smaller pieces
3rd: Sends it to the small teeth and grinds it fast and perfect
Handcrafted in Thessaloniki, Greece the Alexander Mills are a tried and tested product that have been in the market since 1977.
A special tool for every kitchen and a beautiful gift. Make the perfect set for your Salt Mill with the matching Copper-Brass Pepper Mill.
Mills are hand made to exacting standards in Greece.

Please note: brass and copper are naturally resistant to corrosion, but like all metals they do slowly oxodise and change in appearance with touch and with use and though exposure to moisture and oxygen in the air. This process is part of the nature of the metal and brings with it a beautiful patina of use. Over time the metal will darken and dull off in appearance. Copper can eventually develop areas of warm brown and red and brass will also darken to a reddish tone.
If you wish to retain a bright polished look, ordinary metal polishes can be used with a soft cloth to polish the outside of the mill. Excessive exposure to moisture may lead to more extreme corrosion such as bright green-blue to grey colourations which should be removed and avoided by following the care instructions provided.
