This salt/pepper mill has a sleek look and I bought it b/c I liked the idea of grinding both coarse salt and peppercorns but it doesn't do a good job of either. The salt comes out like fine sleet and the pepper function is not strong enough to grind properly and the pepper comes out in chunks----more like pieces of broken peppercorns and not suitable to use on food.
In less than a month, the spring in each end of the grinder broke and I can no longer use either the salt or the pepper. Nice looking and convenient but poorly made. I believe I read a review about this product with the same problem. Shame on me for not being the quality could be the same for all grinders produced by this company.
It's a nice looking product and I bought it for my home renovation based on looks but I'm glad I opened it in time to return it. As the other negative reviewer stated this product DOES NOT GRIND. I tried adjusting the knob that controls fine or coarse grind but to no avail. The salt just comes out as dust and the peppercorns do not grind at all or come out in chunks. ( note: If you are looking for a pepper mill to use at the table bear in mind that this product does not have holes on the lids to shake out salt or pepper on to your food. It's just a grinder. You will have to put the ground product in to salt or pepper shakers. This is another negative because it's more convenient to just use a regular pepper mill. )
Love the salt and pepper mill. I had purchase another which was $200 that was powered by batteries and continue to run down. The stainless look dingy . So I decided to find a new clean looking mill. This is a manual works great. I love it. It looks modern and is practical. Highly recommend.
