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.
One of the two had a small crack on the clear window for the salt or pepper, but it will work fine. Make sure your batteries are new to get a good grind speed. if you use this for salt, use a large grind salt granule. It offers a good range of grind sizes for pepper, plus its fun to use!
