Far too long, my table has had the same salt and pepper shakers. Actually, let me rephrase that. It now has a salt shaker and a pepper grinder - the kind that you buy in the spice section of big box stores or grocery stores. Not exactly aesthetically pleasing. And I kept telling myself that I was going to get a couple grinders that match, don't look worn and are pleasant enough to look at.
But it never happened. It always slipped my mind - until I came across Kitchen Cookery's Salt and Pepper Grinder. These are perfect, I told myself. They are not too flashy and fit wonderfully into the look I am trying to convey - simple yet elegant.
I already had peppercorns, which I poured into one right away. I went out and got salt to pour into the other one. I tested both and found them to work beautifully! And maybe it's a placebo effect, but fresh ground salt and pepper on your food is an improvement.
The only issue I have is I could see some flaws in the glasswork, but only when I held it at an angle in the light. I certainly could not feel the flaws. The containers felt perfectly round in my hands. All in all, I am happy with these grinders. It's a small change in my big kitchen world that I am glad I made.
