I was pleasantly surprised when I heard that Crate & Barrel had begun carrying re-issued Dansk peppermills designed by Jens Quistgaard. The original mills from the middle of the last century are highly collectible and seem to be more and more expensive every time I see them at flea markets and vintage shops. The new ones are made from a more earth-friendly wood than the original teak, but they look just as handsome
My Peugeot peppermill is an absolute hunk of junk--really, it is the worst grinder ever--so I might be in the market for a new mill myself. Has anyone else had problems with Peugeot mills? I thought they were meant to be the creme de la creme of grinders, but mine is really useless. How about the Crate & Barrel Dansk mills, has anyone tried one out?
