Is my rusty pepper mill a goner?

kpzoo | Oct 6, 2008 10:46 AM

I was given a lovely handcrafted wooden pepper mill. Unfortunately, the grinding mechanism has gotten rusty and it's leaving bits of rust in food - not good. Is there anything I can do to salvage it or is it a write-off?

(Strangely, the other grinder that came with the set, which I use for sea salt, has not rusted. One would have thought that if anything, it might be the reverse.)

Thanks for any suggestions.
