Y Knot Medium Maple Salt Mill
The Maple tree and Maple leaf have long been associated with Canada. The tree symbolizes balance and promise, two characteristics very much associated with Canadians! The Pure Canadian Series is quintessential Canadian – the bright blonde wood will go with any decor! In keeping with Canadian values, all of the Canadian Maple items will provide you with a balance between everyday casual dining and a formal dinner table. The great majority of the wood is locally sourced, but sometimes Hugh uses exotics for accent pieces.
Using Your Salt or Pepper Mill
It is important to note that the silver knob on top of the salt or pepper mill should not be over-tightened. Over-tightening the knob will prevent the grinding mechanism from working. For pepper mills – the silver knob is used to adjust the grind from fine to coarse. Just turn the knob slightly one way or the other to adjust the coarseness of the grind. Salt mills can not have the grind adjusted, they only have a fine grind setting. Pepper mill mechanisms are stainless steel. Salt mill mechanisms are ceramic (to prevent corrosion). Both are made in the USA and are guaranteed for life.
To add peppercorns or coarse salt:
- Unscrew silver knob
- Remove top portion
- Fill (a funnel will help)
- Replace top portion
- Screw on silver knob – and don’t over-tighten
- To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth. A light coat of walnut oil can be applied if desired, but isn’t usually necessary.
