Care & maintenance: Care should be taken to avoid excessive exposure to moisture. Never wash or submerge the mill in water and do not put in the dishwasher. Store the mill in a cool dry place. Try to avoid grinding directly over cooking pots, as steam will dampen the salt or pepper in the mill, which may in turn clog the mechanism. If the mill becomes clogged it can be cleaned by removing the top, loosening the mechanism and cleaning it out with a small brush. The outer metal casing will naturally oxidise and change in appearance with touch and with use and through exposure to moisture and oxygen in the air. However, if you wish to keep the mill polished you can use metal cleaners suitable for brass or copper available at most supermarkets. Excessive exposure to moisture may lead to more extreme corrosion such as bright greenblue to grey colourations or ‘verdigris’, which should be cleaned off using a scouring pad, or scrubbed with a half lemon pressed into salt, then wiped clean and dry with a soft cloth.
