Arcade Company was well known for producing high-quality cast iron coffee mills, spring hinges, cork extractors and stove dampers. Around 1897, the company really focused on making coffee mills. Some of the popular coffee mills manufactured by Aracde include : Telephone Mills, X-Ray, Royal, the Jewel, the Bell, the Golden Rule, and the Crystal. They continued making coffee mills until 1930s.

One of the most popular coffee mills made by Arcade is "The Crystal" which was first introduced after the turn of the 20th century. It is still a highly collectible item.

The Crystal No. 1 was the first glass hopper mill produced by Arcade. This mill has it’s original un-embossed lid and hopper and a replacement catch cup.
