Beautiful and original form in turned European beech developed from our standard range of salt and pepper mills but more magnificent in size. Designed by Corin Mellor and exclusive to our shops. The unique sculptural shapes were developed in our own workshops. The mills have a strong ceramic crush grind mechanism effective for both salt and pepper which can be adjusted from fine to coarse.

David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well designed tableware is a vital part of any interior. The company was set up by David Mellor, Royal Designer for Industry, in the 1950s. The first and now famous David Mellor shop opened in Sloane Square, London, in 1969 and soon became a focal point of Swinging Sixties Chelsea and remains one of London’s most original and individual shops. We run our own design office within the company and so the David Mellor collection is constantly evolving. Many of our products are designed by Corin Mellor, Creative Director, exclusively for the David Mellor shops and are produced by specially selected workshop producers and manufacturers. David Mellor now holds one of the most impressive collections of the finest British Crafts and sophisticated modern tableware and kitchenware, including the world famous David Mellor Cutlery, to be found on the international scene.
Corin Mellor succeeded his father as Creative Director of David Mellor Design in 2006. He is responsible for product development within the company, expanding our unique and well-known collection of specialist tableware and kitchenware. Corin trained in product design and architecture. He designed the interior of the Design Museum and Cafe at Hathersage. Recent special commissions include spectacular metalwork for Sheffield Cathedral and a collection of sterling silver for a Middle East royal family. A large scale sculptural seat for the gardens at Chatsworth was commissioned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire in 2009 and a second bench has just been installed.
- To fill your grinder with salt or pepper pull the top firmly and remove.
- The ceramic mechanism can be adjusted from coarse to fine.
- DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN as this will damage the mechanism.
- To ensure continued smooth operation we recommend adding a small amount of rice on top of the salt to absorb moisture and prevent the rocks/corns from sticking together.
- We also recommend that you always turn the grinder in the same direction (i.e. clockwise) to prevent salt/pepper being drawn back into the mechanism.
