Cole & Mason Derwent Gift Set

DKB Household USA took the top honor for the Countertop Kitchenware category for its Cole & Mason Derwent Salt Pepper Mill Gift Set. Featuring a precision mechanism, the mills release the essential oils to ensure fuller flavor by stripping the peppercorns of their individual layers as it grinds. As the different flavors within these layers are released, they mix together to deliver the full flavor of the peppercorn, the company said.

The new precision mechanism for professional seasoning and flavoring features machine cut, hardened carbon steel for pepper and diamond-sharp ceramic for salt. The mills, models H59401G PM and H59402G SM, allow users to choose from six precision steps for pepper and three precise steps for salt for a light dusting to crumb-sized granules. A spring-loaded mechanism allows easy adjustment between the fine and coarse grinds. The mechanism is said to offer more taste for less turn.

“It has a precise, two in one mechanism,” said Mariano Garcia, regional sales manager, DKB. “It’s a complex process that ends up in more flavor and better aroma. It’s one of the most unique procedures you’re going to find on the market.”

The mills were designed with timeless and elegant appeal, featuring stainless steel accents and a high-quality clear acrylic body. To fill, users just pull the top off and replace. The mills stand at approximately 7.5-inches tall and measures roughly 2-inches in diameter. To clean, users should wipe with a damp cloth. The company also offers a lifetime mechanism guarantee.

Cole & Mason, part of the DKB Group, has been designing and developing kitchenware in England for almost a century. Its salt and pepper range offers manual and electronic mills, simple shakers and salt keepers. The Derwent Gift Set is one of several mill gift sets that the company offers.
