Marseille Pepper or Salt Dark Walnut Mill, 11.5”h

Marseille Pepper or Salt Dark Walnut Mill, 11.5”h

Our Marseille Mill crushes it. Literally and figuratively.

(This mill also comes in Medium size. You could buy one for pepper and one for salt if you want.)

The elegant lines are somehow both modern and traditional. French curves meet Danish design. 

The Marseille body is made of solid Dark Walnut wood. It feels solid in your hand. (I can attest to this, because that's my hand in one of those photos over there holding the mill. Perhaps I should have been a hand model instead of an entrepreneur? Perhaps not.)

But Marseille doesn't just crush it in the looks department. It crushes it in the grind as well. It's outfitted with our favorite type of grinding mechanism made by CrushGrind that uses a ceramic mechanism. It grinds smoothly with little effort.

The grind is adjustable for coarseness by turning the dial on the bottom. To fill the mill, just pull off the top and pour in peppercorns or salt.

Yes, the Marseille Mill is our latest crush.

  • Dark Walnut Wood
  • Grinds whole peppercorns or Salt
  • Top removes for easy filling
  • Adjustable coarseness setting using dial on bottom
  • Ceramic CrushGrind grinding mechanism
  • 11.5"h x 2.75"dia. at base

To load peppercorns, hold bottom half and firmly pull the Walnut Wood top straight up and off. Fine tune grind coarseness using gray dial on bottom of mill.

Do not substitute other peppercorn or salt brands in place of Reluctant because you know I’ll find out. Do not pass go.

Nice Mills

We bought one for pepper and one for Salt. The good looks of these mills are a pleasant sight on our table. The smooth and effortless grinding action were nice surprises. We definitely recommend these mills.

Trust Your Instincts!

Admittedly, I lean heavily on reviews before I take any plunge. A huge number of reviews supported my desires to buy this pepper mill. And, it was proven beyond any reasonable doubt that my hard earned retirement money was well spent. What an outstanding mill!
* The "feel" is incredible. The finish is so smooth and the weight so satisfying.
* The "grind" is uniform and consistent - a sieve test will prove this.
* Adustibility will appease even Gordon Ramsay.

Trust your instincts and treat yourself to something special!
I'm buying another for my salt.

Beautiful with smooth grinding

I'd been searching for a *fancy* pepper mill for weeks. I had my eye on several Peugeot pepper mills but couldn't find the exact combination of height and color I wanted. I came across RTE during my research and was happy to take a chance on the pepper mill. I still wish it was taller and came in more colors but I'm very happy with what I ordered. It fits beautifully in my kitchen and works smoothly.

Love, love, love

I have been looking for a pepper mill for a longtime. I love to cook so it was important that I invested in quality and functionality. I researched a lot of higher end mills. Once I come across the reluctant trading experience, I was very impressed with the aesthetics and when I received it the cracking sound it makes when gridding my corn peppers is so beautiful.

Beautiful and Functional

They work amazingly, especially along with the pepper I ordered. Plus they are beautifully constructed. Very happy!
