If not now, Svend?

Our beautiful Danish Modern mills were inspired by celebrated Danish artist, Svend Hammershoi. In case you were catching z’s in art history class, Svend made his mark as a Danish ceramist in the early 1900s. One of Svend’s favorite details was the ceramic groove. (But of course, you knew that!)

Our Svend Mills feature cast, ridged ceramic tops fitted onto well-honed wooden bases of lightly finished oak.

Like all of our mills, they’re built with top-of-the-line ceramic CrushGrind mechanisms. (The grinder part.) We won't sell anything else. Easily tune the grind from fine to coarse with the adjustable dial. The mills grind salt, pepper and spices too.

To load, simply hold the bottom of the mill with one hand and pull the ceramic top straight up and off.

Svend comes with a White or Slate Gray top. This is the White Top mill. (Click here for the Slate Gray top.) You might want to choose White for salt and Slate Gray for pepper. But it’s a free country, so do as you please.

You say you’re looking for a set? You won't need to svend so much. You'll save $9 if you buy the set.

Our Svend mills are casual, yet elegant. They’ll look equally good on your dining table as they do on your kitchen table.

What’s more, they come nicely boxed for gift giving.

Just say Svend!

The oak portion of the mill has been oiled; it may be re-oiled with olive oil as necessary.

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

Danish modern salt mill

This is by far my favorite mill. I have tried so many. I use for both course salt and black pepper.
Wonderful experience, my order arrived well packed and promptly. Definitely would buy again!

Svend salt and pepper grinders

Love these so far. Used WMBounds grinders for years and they were good, but these CrushGrind mechanisms work precisely for the size grind you need. These have been awesome to use so far!

Salt and pepper

Love the grinders. Now looking for engraved “S” & “P” so we know what is where!

Salt and Pepper shakers

These are wonderful. I love this little company.

Super mill set

The Best Svend Danish salt and pepper mill set are beautiful and work wonderfully. I’m extremely satisfied with my purchase, and as usual, the service from Reluctant Trading was great!
