Peugeot Tidore Nutmeg Grinder/Shaver : Whether you're topping off holiday eggnog or seasoning a sweet potato souffle, the Peugeot Tidore Nutmeg Grinder/Shaver produces fine, consistent shavings of whole nutmeg for authentic full flavor and aroma. Nutmeg's essential oils produce the rich aroma of the popular spice, but those oils evaporate quickly. Freshly ground nutmeg is best to preserve the spice's robust flavor. Comfortable to use and safer for your fingers than a box grater or hand rasp, the whole nutmeg shaver firmly holds nutmeg in place with spring-loaded claws. As you turn the crank handle, two double stainless-steel blades finely shave the nutmeg, providing just what you need to create favorites like brown sugar and spice dry ham rub or butterscotch flan. Up to 7 whole nutmegs can be stored inside the body of the turn crank nutmeg mill. Designed especially to mill nutmeg and capture the freshest flavor and scent for all your dishes and drinks. Made of easy-to-clean acrylic and noncorrosive stainless-steel. Includes nutmegs and gift box. The Peugeot family of Valentigney, France, started in the manufacturing business in the early 19th century. Years before they became known for crafting luxury automobiles, the Peugeot company created its first coffee mill in 1840, beginning a history of creating not merely kitchen gadgets, but high-performance professional tools preferred by chefs worldwide. Peugeot products are built with a focus on reliability, tradition and innovation. Product Features Double stainless-steel blade/grater and strong claws allow fine shavings of fresh nutmeg 4 spring-loaded claws firmly hold nutmeg steady to ensure finger safety Shaving mechanism is case-hardened and treated steel to protect against wear and corrosion Clear acrylic case allows you to track the grinding progress Acrylic case stores up to 7 whole nutmegs at a time Peugeot nutmeg grinder includes 7 nutmegs Gift boxed Easily clean with dry cloth Lifetime guarantee on grinding mechanism; 2-year warranty on mill
