Hugo Mills, Set of 2, Dark Walnut Pepper or Salt Mill, Medium and Large


Hugo Mills, Set of 2, Dark Walnut Pepper or Salt Mill, Medium and Large

Our inspired Hugo Mills are a throw-back to the classic mid-century modern mills from Denmark. Hugo is defined by beautiful turnings, dark walnut wood, and a tasteful matte finish.

Designed exclusively for Reluctant Trading by notable American furniture designer William Eastburn, the Hugo Mill Set includes: 1 Large Mill, 10.2"h and 1 Medium Mill, 7.5"h.

Either mill can be used for whole peppercorns or grindable salt. The Large Hugo Mill and Medium Hugo Mill are also sold separately.

Fortunately, the beauty of our mills isn’t just skin deep. After selling mills for nearly a decade, we’ve learned that a mill is only as good as the grinding system inside.

We exclusively outfit ours with the top-of-the-line CrushGrind ceramic mechanisms. Think of this as the Porsche of grinding mechanisms - ideal for whole peppercorns or grindable salt.

The Danish-designed system grinds without metal, so it will never corrode, shred, or jam. The mills also include an adjustable dial on the bottom that lets you adjust the coarseness or fineness of your grind.

Our own line of mills has arrived. Just say when.

The Hugo Peppermill is a Work of Art

We just received the 7.5 inch Hugo peppermill in walnut. Wow! It is nothing short of a work of art. Absolutely gorgeous. We almost didn't want to use it! But we did, and true to its billing, the finest mill we have ever owned. So nice to have one that works as intended. Kudos to the designer and to the Reluctant Trading Experiment.

Thrilled with the Anders Mill!

The Anders Mill arrived and we are thrilled with it! Great size, handsome wood and nice design! And it grinds beautifully!
