Everyone uses salt and pepper every day, well at least, everyone should. So let’s do it comfortably with quality salt and pepper grinders. Let’s take a look at why you should or should not have OXO Good Grips Salt and Pepper Grinder Set (buy on Amazon) in your kitchen or on your dining table.
Features of the Grinders
It is easy to adjust OXO Good Grips Salt and Pepper Grinders from fine to coarse grind, for different needs. Just rotate tabs to set which grind you want.
The grinders have a clear acrylic body which allows to see contents and indicate when refill is needed. They are also made from ceramic that will not absorb odors and flavors, that allows you to put other spices in the grinders like cumin, coriander or cloves.
Tip: when switching to a different spice, to avoid flavors mixing, just grind some coarse salt to let the grinder clean up and then add the other ingredient.
You can put the grinders upside down for easy refilling since they rest flat.
The design of the grinders with stainless steel accents give a professional and solid look for your kitchen or dining room.
OXO Good Grips Grinders were engineered to have a grinding mechanism on top to ensure that countertops are clean and free of salt and pepper.
Obviously the products from this company are designed to be held comfortably and firmly. These grinders feel very soft but they are firm and do not slip from your hands. With some grinders you need to use more force or they are really clunky, not with OXO Good Grips, the grinders do the job easily and smooth.
Both salt and pepper grinders are filled to the top with salt and pepper. It seems like a very small perk but is really comfortable.
Is it worth it?
We used the grinders for a little over a week and are very pleased. We were surprised how easy they grind with very little effort. Setting them upside down on the table or your kitchen counter is a blessing since you don’t need to wipe small pepper grains from the surface after every use.
Quality is great, looks professional, and operates easily, so what’s wrong about it? Well… It’s the price. This set currently goes for a little under $50! So each grinder is around $25 that’s a lot for a spice grinder!
Unless you are in love with the looks and design or don’t really care about price it is a great product we recommend having in your kitchen. If not, we believe you could find much cheaper substitutes. Just because of the steep price we rate OXO Good Grips Salt and Pepper Grinder Set 8.5/10
