Kitchen Classique Modern Wood and Glass Salt and Pepper Grinders #kitchenclassique
I received this product to facilitate my review. For more information regarding product review, please refer to my media kit.
If you have a food fanatic in your house or among your family and friends, I am sure you have heard on more than one occasion that having fresh ground salt and pepper just make your meal so much more. I know from my personal experience that fresh ground pepper is always "stronger" in flavor because it hasn't been sitting around. Once spices are ground, the flavor starts to escape into the air so if you don't grind your spices until you are ready to use them .. the stronger the flavor and smell will be.
Kitchen Classique has come up with a real winner with this set.
There are just so many good things about this set. I know I can't believe I am gushing over salt and pepper grinders, but I am.
I can see these grinders being used at the stove when you are preparing your meals, but I think that if you just leave them on your table you will get much more use/flavor out of them. Yes, you do use salt and pepper while you are cooking, but most people will use them to "customize" their meals to their tastes.
Some like more pepper or more salt, or if you are like me and try to use a little less salt (you need some but can cut back while cooking) having this grinder on the table allows your diner to add what they want and need. I can also see these being used for the "fancy flavored" salts that you can get from the Himalayas or Hawaii, among other places, that I have only seen in a coarse grind that begs for something like this.
They have a simple yet elegant profile that makes them perfect for just about any table. Another thing I really like about these is the fact that they hold quite a bit of coarse salt (3/4 of a cup) and peppercorns so you aren't refilling all the time. Although it is rather easy to refill.
I love the fact that the grinding mechanism is on the top, so you don't end up with "leftover" ground pepper or salt on your table and the ceramic grinder is non-corrosive so you don't have to worry about having salt ruin the grinder (as I have had with other grinders).
I think if you have any foodies on your holiday list or even as a house warming present, the Modern Wood and Glass Salt and Pepper Grinders from Kitchen Classique with some specialty salts would make an awesome gift that will last a lifetime!
