Resurrected: Jens Quistgaard Pepper Mills for Dansk

. Wednesday, September 23, 2009

At long last, Dansk has a new creative director with a strong belief in the companies history.

Of the many things coming back on the market, i am most interested in the return of Jens Quistgaard's combined salt and pepper mills.

They were originally made in Denmark from solid teak and there were dozens of versions. Afterwards they were made in Malaysia and then in Thailand and the quality got progressively worse.

The new ones are not quite as nice as the very first but are substantially better than the second and third generation. They are new and clean, sport ceramic grinding mechanisms and work really well (and they are only $50.)
