Please Pass the Salt (and Pepper)

Older models

For those of you who are old enough to remember skipping songs, you’ll know that “pepper” was the prompt that signified that the rope was about to speed up.

Although my skipping days are long gone, pepper, thankfully, has not skipped out of my life.

I love spicing things up in the kitchen—and dining room—with freshly ground pepper. I have several manual pepper grinders; unfortunately, the torque that is required to get those grinds is asking too much of my hands and wrists.

Several years ago, I found this Starfrit Rechargeable Electric Pepper Mill. I decided to get a mate for it and purchased a second one in white for— what else?—but the salt! These are also rechargeable and come with a light, so you’ll be able to add more seasoning to those romantic candlelit dinners!

At one point, I thought it had broken, so I started looking for a replacement. Most of the ones I looked at were cheaply made. I didn’t think they would be any match against the force of the pepper grounds.

A mechanically minded friend had a look at my beloved pepper grinder and discovered that one grain was stuck, so no replacement was required.


New and improved Rechargeable Electric Pepper Mill

New is Improved

The Rechargeable Electric Pepper Mill from Starfrit is absolutely one of my favourite kitchen items! In addition to same great features of the older model, it boasts an easier-to-load pepper “drawer”, plus the grains don’t seem to get stuck like they did in the older model.

Today’s Rechargeable Electric Pepper Mill is the last of four Starfrit kitchen gadgets that have been featured on the Gadget Tuesday Giveaway. One lucky person will receive a very generous gift from Starfrit, which includes not one, not two, nor three, but four—count ’em!— kitchen and hand-friendly gadgets. Woo Hoo!
