In one compact but substantial package, this cast iron spice mill acts as a grinder, a miniature mortar and pestle, and a spice storer. The corrugated bottom of the vessel creates an even grind for pepper, cumin, mustard seeds, basil and other dried or fresh herbs. Weighing in at 2.4 pounds (pretty hefty for an item that measures just about 3 inches all around), you won’t need much more than a bit of elbow grease to macerate herbs and crush peppercorns. A streamlined walnut wood lid tops off the cast iron spice mill, allowing storage of your freshly ground spices.

Use & Care

Place spices or herbs in the lower reservoir. Grind by placing the upper container into the lower reservoir, then rotate while pushing the inner vessel into the outer vessel. Store ground spices in the upper container, placing lid on top.

Hand wash only using mild soap and a soft brush. Do not place in dishwasher.

Not suitable for grinding salt as salt will rust the iron. 

Production & Design

Setting themselves apart from mass-produced, disposable goods, Swedish company Skeppshult has been in operation since 1906, and continues to make their cast iron products by hand, according to ancient methods and traditions.

All of their products start with raw iron along with other metals in carefully controlled amounts. The metal is heated to 2732 °F (1500 °C) in induction furnaces powered by electricity from wind and hydropower.

The molten iron is cast in special molds, made from compressed, specially formulated sand—one of the few materials that can withstand the extreme temperatures. The two halves of the sand molds are then pressed together, creating the cavity in which the molten iron is poured by hand by an expert casting master.

When the cast iron has cooled, the mold halves are separated and recycled to produce another mold (sand molds can be used only once and therefore each product is unique; no two are exactly alike). The cast iron object then goes through hand grinding and blasting to produce the proper structure. Finally, the surface is seasoned with rapeseed oil, which protects the cast iron from external damage and creates a non-stick surface.
