As a professional chef I find this thread really interesting. One product I like a lot is Peugeot salt and pepper mills. They're a bit more expensive, but well worth it in the long run (as can be said most kitchen tools). I've got 2 sets...a classic 'Paris' style, and I just picked up some modern stainless ones this year, the Peugeot 'Tresses' mills.
ps. Had the same experience with a Viking by the way!
