It looks beautiful but once I got to use it not only wouldn't it grind the salt and pepper but once you lift them up,Salt and pepper come out,I used the largest particles of salt and whole black pepper but still something isn't right.i had someone else reassemble it but nothing improved.Currently using both to decorate my kitchen counter top.
I don't use these a ton, and I would say that mechanically these aren't super smooth and can make noise when grinding. So with that in mind it's up to you as to how much use and your expectations but they do work. They also look really great, so the appearance is nice.
Screws that go up into the base of the grinder which hold the ajustable mechanism has fractured the bottom of the ceramic grinder. One of the screws look like a broken marble while the other three are fine. They are sure not worth what I paid for them,
