Marseille Salt or Pepper Dark Walnut Mill - Large 11.5"h

Large 11.5"h

Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store"

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

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

Marseille and More

Curiosity about Tellicherry peppercorns led me to The Reluctant Trading Experiment, where I discovered the Marseille Mill. I’d given up months before on finding a suitable replacement for a defunct pepper grinder, and suddenly – there it was! But could I have it in time to give as a birthday gift? Assured via email (over a holiday weekend) that it would be timely, I placed the order and was surprised a day or so later to learn that this special company had upgraded the shipping to be certain it arrived in time.

The Marseille Mill is just as described. It’s a beautiful design, totally functional, and a pleasure to use. My husband, the gift recipient and main pepper-user here, is very happy with it (and the Tellicherry peppercorns, too!), and I am totally delighted to come across a business that takes customer service so seriously. Thank you, Reluctant Trading Experiment!

Beautiful product, great customer service

Had a wonderful experience with this company. We were sent the wrong style of grinder by accident. Customer service was amazing and above and beyond. They explained that they have just recently switched to a new warehouse and are having some growing pains. They sent the correct grinder right away with a free return label for the wrong one. Easy as pie.

The Marseille grinder is absolutely beautiful and does a wonderful job. My husband REALLY loves his pepper, even more so now that we have discovered this company's pepper. He's ecstatic with the new grinder. Even I love pepper now lol.
