Bump and Grind

HK Magazine - - GADGETS -

I al­ways have a soft spot in my heart for the un­nec­es­sary nov­elty gad­get. Hence my en­thu­si­asm for the

Pep­per Mill. Peu­geot, you say? Don’t they make cars? Well, yes and no. The car man­u­fac­turer ac­tu­ally has its roots in a com­pany which started mak­ing cof­fee mills back in the 1840s. One branch of the fam­ily went into the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try—but grinder-mak­ers live on, pre­sum­ably in­creas­ingly ir­ri­tated by every­one’s as­sump­tion that it’s just a car spin-off. This new mill, how­ever, looks more like a car pis­ton than a pep­per mill: You hold it side­ways over your food and the ground pep­per is fun­neled straight where you want it. Sure, it might not be ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary. But as a com­bi­na­tion of grinder de­sign and fu­tur­is­tic car-like tech­nol­ogy, why wouldn't you want one?
