These electric salt and pepper mills provide kitchen practicality in the form of a desirable gadget. Made from brushed stainless steel with a transparent chamber, the mills dispense salt and pepper at the touch of a button and are lots of fun to use....more
Love these mills. I bought two, one for salt and one for pepper. Use good coppertop batteries because it must use alot of power. Light at bottom illuminates the food you are seasoning. I looked at the $100 ones but tried these instead and I am not disappointed. Great value for the money, don't hesitate to purchase for yourself or as a gift . They look great on the counter or on the table and having the see-through area makes it easy to see what's inside. It comes with a bottom cover, so extra small bits don't fall out on the counter. They look and should be much more expensive. Maybe I'll buy some more for the boat and our second home.
While I didn't buy these from Overstock, I received the exact same salt/pepper mill set as a "prize" gift. This wasthe second set of battery operated mills I have had. The first set (different manufacturer) I bought at Walmart lasted about three months, until my cat knocked one off the table. It never worked right after that, so I was excited to get this set and give it a try. The salt mill worked for about a week, then stopped grinding. It appears that the gears inside the unit are stripped. The motor still works, but the grinder doesn't turn! Don't waste your money on cleaply made battery operated mills. I'm wondering if the really expensive ones on this site work better. Maybe they have all-steel gears that will not strip so easily. Hmmm...
These two mills are one of the best purchases I have made. They do adequate jobs of grinding peppercorn and sea salt. For the price, I can only buy one at retail store. The best part is free shipping. I like it so well, that I'm ordering five more sets for gifts for my kids and friends. Great gift idea that is practical and nice looking.
In the beginning I was very happy with the mills. I have had them in use for about 3 months and have already had to change the batteries twice. takes 6 AAA batteries. The second time I changed the batteries the motor stopped working. I have double checked the installation of the batteries made sure the contacts for the base were correct and nothing. Motor dead. I called the manufacturer and was told that they have a replacement guarantee. You would think that a product that was $**.** would last more than 3 months. or that the manufacturer would offer something other than offering to sell you another unit. By the way they only have been used about three times a week. Would not recommend this product.
I ordered a salt mill and a pepper mill. I received 2 pepper mills. Customer service said they were the same. I know this is not true as I had these before. The salt mill held more salt than the pepper mill and the pepper mill does not grind the salt finely enough.
My husband bought two sets of these (one set a gift for a family member) and they both failed just outside of the time frame that Overstock allowed returns. They simply stop working after a few weeks. We contacted the manufacturer, itouchless, since Overstock would not allow them to be returned. itouchless took no responsibility for their product because it wasn't purchased from them. Their only offer was to sell us new "motors consoles" which, with shipping, would cost an additional *** per pair! Overstock and itouchless need to work out an agreement where customers can receive replacements when a product fails after short term use. Alternatively, Overstock should warn customers or not carry such defective products.
