Marseille Pepper or Salt Dark Walnut Mill, 8.5”h

Our Marseille Mill crushes it. Literally and figuratively.

(This mill also comes in Large size. You could buy one for pepper and one for salt.)

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
  • 8.5"h x 2.25"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.

Top notch pepper mill

I ordered the 8.5” walnut pepper mill (as well as the best pepper corns I’ve ever tasted). The mill feels great in my hands and turns smoothly. This pepper mill beats any you’ll find at much higher prices. Plus, Reluctant Trader was quick to respond and made ordering easy. Diane Fagiola

Beautiful Grinder

I bought this one and the smaller one for salt and they are exactly as pictured. Gorgeous and functional. Didn't come with instructions so a couple of tips for future customers (1. top just pulls off to fill / 2. there is a coarseness setting on the bottom its grey and just needs a little twist). Overall great buy and would definitely recommend!

Love the salt/pepper grinders!

I have been wanting to upgrade from disposable salt/pepper shakers at some point, and then I saw the RTE products, their reviews, and decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did! I purchased the larger one for pepper and the smaller one for salt (for ease of telling the difference and also because we go through way more pepper than salt). GREAT product. Even my husband who notices nothing in our house ;) said, "wow - I really like these!" They look very nice on the counter also. Highly recommend!

Beautifully made. Works like a charm

My wife likes fine grind while I like coarse. This does both without loosening up over time (so far). We’ve had several pepper grinders and this one has the nicest feel and performance by far. It’s also beautifully finished. Very pleased with the product.
