And with this Black and White Peugeot Paris u'Select 7" Salt and Pepper Mill Set, you'll see instantly which mill to reach for -- white is salt, black is pepper. Each Peugeot Paris Mill is designed of premium beechwood and finished with a piano gloss finish of 7 layers lacquer plus 2 varnish topcoats for ultimate durability and an elegant kitchen and dining room accent. For both the Peugeot Paris salt and pepper mill, the patented u'Select system allows you to adjust the grind of pepper or salt quickly, easily and accurately, selecting between powdery fine and extra-coarse grinds by simply turning the outer ring at the base of the mill. Your preferred grind size stays locked in until you reset the dial. The black 7" pepper mill's 2-stage process cracks peppercorns before grinding for freshest, most flavorful taste. A unique helical shape drives the spice grains toward the grinding system. With the 7" white salt and black pepper grinders, you can season all your culinary creations from stove top to dining table.

The reason I didn't give this an excellent rating is the nut does loosen when you are using these. I also miss not being able to grind with a back and forth wrist motion. I understand why it's not good on the grinding unit too.
The only other thing I've noticed is the 'paint/coating' is slippery if your hands not squeaky clean unlike my 60+yo wood pepper mill who finally met its maker as the grinder bar fell off. The Peugeots have screw mounted bars. This also means they wipe down nicely.
They grind beautifully.
I love the fact you can see what you are grabbing easily by the color difference instead of having to check the grinding mechanism or marked nut to see which one you've grabbed.
Wish I could have gotten a taller set for my larger hands.
As for the person who has a problem with the mills 'leaking', I've never used a mill that didn't leave an itsy bitsy amount of milled spice on it's resting surface unless it's a flip-over model. Why not get a pretty dish/plate to set them on/in?
My other suggestion is to turn the mill upside down for the last grind and clear out the mechanism like you should do prior to changing the grinder setting to a smaller mill. You'll probably still need to wash the area and mills when you do your deeper cleaning. JMHO.
I am probably going to buy another pepper mill in a different color for my mixed peppercorns.

I have a Pro 6 KP2671 and have always wanted a smaller bowl. The only thing I did notice is that the whisk/beater did not come close enough to the bottom of the bowl. Lift mixer bowls are not adjustable. I got 2 very thin rubber gaskets that fit the bowl 'spikes'. Lifted the bowl perfectly and know I get fully whipped cream and egg whites. I don't have to take out my hand-stick mixer as much now. (Though I love it too. 1st time I ever used one though{a girlfriend who didn't own a mixer, egg beater or whisk}. She'd never even used the stick-mixer. My whipped cream actually churned into butter for the pie I backed for our shared Thanksgiving.

I bake my own bread 2-3 times a week (not with a bread maker). I 'love' my new knife. I have 30yo Wustoff's and Henkels set but none of them came with an actual bread knife. I've been using the serated Wustoff knife or my Grandmother's 70yo Ecko bread knife and they don't compare with this knife.
