Best Svend Danish Modern Salt and Pepper Mill Set, 6.9”h

Best Svend Danish Modern Salt and Pepper Mill Set, 6.9”h

Expected back in stock Spring 2021.

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 Best Svend Mill Set features cast, ridged ceramic tops fitted onto well-honed wooden bases of lightly finished oak. The set includes one Svend with a White Ceramic Top and one with a Slate Gray Ceramic Top.

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. Only the color of the ceramic tops are different.

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

The White Svend Mill and Slate Gray Svend Mill are also sold individually. We also offer a Svend Mills and Fills Gift Box with a set of mills plus our signature salt and pepper.

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!

To clean, use a damp cloth for ceramic top. The ceramic top is not dishwasher safe.

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

Grind coarse salt to help clean out oils from spices. For a more thorough cleaning, unscrew gray dial on bottom, remove the ceramic cone and soak in hot water. Make sure the cone is completely dry (24 hours) prior to reattaching to mill.

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

These are beautiful!! I feel like I have a work on art sitting on my counter every time I see them sitting there. They are very easy to use. The product of pepper and salt are outstanding. I know they are fresh and love to use them on my food. Thank you!!!

Christmas gifts

I know they’ll be thrilled. I’ve gotten the salt and pepper grinders and so the pepper and salt complete the gift.

Salt Grinder

This is the best salt grinder you can imagine. The ceramic top fits in to the base so there is no screw at the top to loosen or lose. The grind is fully adjustable and does not vary over time. Getting one for pepper soon!

Beatiful to look at and use

They are a joy to use! Makes an everyday activity a pleasure.


Great products and terrific service! I have been a customer for several years.
