COLE & MASON Derwent Salt Grinder
The Cole & Mason Derwent Salt Grinder is an elegant-looking salt mill that is perfect for any kitchen. It boasts of professional-grade grinding mechanism that’s not only perfect for professional kitchens, but also for ordinary homes. The Derwent features a few innovations that can help translate ordinary dishes into spectacular Michelin Star-worthy recipes.
At the heart of the milling capabilities of the Derwent is a ceramic grinding mechanism. This is very different from what you see in other products. The ceramic grinder comes with precision crushing that is similar to the sharpness of diamond cutting devices. It is easy to transform your coarse sea salt into finer granules, which are perfect for dishes that require the distinct taste of salt sans the nasty grains.
The Derwent has a pepper mill variant, too. On the exterior, it looks the same as the salt grinder. The only difference is that the pepper mill boasts of a different grinding mechanism. Instead of a ceramic element, the pepper mill features hardened carbon steel. Cole & Mason cut this steel grinding element with a precision machine. It helps provide for the distinct sharpness of the individual blades.
The hardened carbon steel grinder allows the system to strip peppercorns into their component layers. Each layer of the peppercorn features a flavor that is unique from the other layers. The stripping and grinding process blends these flavors together to create pepper granules that are more rounded in their flavor profile.
Like most pepper and salt mills, the Derwent also features adjustable grind settings. The salt mill boasts of 3 grind settings while the pepper grinder features six. You get to tune the fineness or coarseness of your salt and pepper so you’ll bring out the best flavors from your dish.
Unlike most salt and pepper mills that are extra-tall, the Derwent comes with a shorter profile. It only stands some 7.5 inches tall, high enough to accommodate your salt or pepper. The top section is easy to open so you can gain access to its chamber. The main body looks like an expensive glass, but it’s not. You’re looking at premium-quality clear acrylic.
Both ends of the Derwent come in different designs. There’s stainless steel, gunmetal, wood, and bronze. It’s perfect for complementing your kitchen interior.
The Cole & Mason Derwent Salt Grinder is a venerable item for your culinary adventures. It’s beautiful and functional at the same time.
