About spicemills.ca

The perfect combination of art and function . . . Spicemills.ca designs and creates fine quality hand made spice mills and spice bowls (along with our fragrant and flavourful hand blended peppercorns).  Each piece is individually crafted in our Owen Sound studio by professional turner and mill maker Irwin Seidman using only the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods, and hand buffed to a soft sheen using the best quality earth friendly wood finishes.  Beyond the fine craftsmanship and beautiful design is an authentic CrushGrind™ ceramic mechanism.  This makes every Spicemills.ca mill ideal for grinding peppercorns, salt or spices.

We believe that a well crafted spice mill is the ultimate combination of art and function, and that quality of design, materials, workmanship and service is paramount to our success. With this in mind we always promise you our best.
