I’m geekily into my food and do love to cook. I seem to treat kitchen gadgets the same way as everything else I touch. How does it feel, what does it do? So when it comes to salt and pepper grinders, I’ve tried plenty over the years, including the silly electric ones and the giant ‘Italian‘ ones too, but this is the best yet.
The first thing to say is that they are quite big. Much bigger than any salt and pepper grinders I have owned before and as a consequence, they hold an awful lot of salt and pepper. A whole packet can be sucked up into either, which means far more infrequent fill-ups.
The second thing is quite how nice they feel. Even though they are made of plastic, they have an almost silky feeling to them and ooze quality. They just feel incredibly premium. There isn’t a cheap feeling bit in them. Even the wood at the top feels lovely, classy and looks beautiful. I am totally happy to have them on the table.
And thirdly, they work. The grind is infinitely variable from super fine to very coarse and it’s ridiculously easy to adjust with just a turn of the wooden top.
I love them. It was a great purchase. They look good in the kitchen, works beautifully and are worth every penny of the £38/$50 that I paid for them. They are now available from Amazon Worldwide here.
