Everybody eats. Not everybody has the same taste for food though. Some like it spicy while others prefer their food to be sweet. Whether you’re about the sweet life or the spicy life, there’s one spice pair everyone’s taste buds can handle — salt & pepper. So let’s talk about why I bought a new salt & pepper grinder set!
Although you could buy the cheap finely ground table salt & pepper shakers, why would you want to? I’m sorry, but you cannot say that they’re easier to use than a grinder. One is a flick while the other is a twist. Tell me something, have you ever heard of a song that goes, “you can do the flick”? Didn’t think so.

Insert the Deluxe Stainless Steel Salt & Pepper Grinder Set that I bought off of Amazon. I’ll be honest. At first I was a little turned off by the price of $40. Except that Amazon has it for $19.97 right now so you’re paying half the price. I checked out a couple of others for a price comparison and noticed that priced ranged from $15 to $80. $80! Prices changed depending on the size of the grinders as well. I use a LOT of pepper when I cook so one of the small $15 ones didn’t seem worth it to me. So I went with the stainless steel set and I have to say I’m not disappointed.
The salt & pepper grinder set is by Chef Express, a brand I have never bought from before. When I received my product in the mail I was surprised that it actually came with a little instruction manual. How hard could it be to use a grinder? The instruction manual is a folded card and explains how to clean your product as well as adjust the thickness of your grind. For instance, pepper can be fine or coarse depending on how thick your grinding mechanism is set to. Pretty cool, right?
It also came with a cute little cleaning cloth with their logo imprinted into it. Since it is stainless steel you can use the cloth to wipe it down and get rid of those pesky fingerprints.
This product does come empty so be sure to get yourself some peppercorn and Himalayan salt before it arrives! Or just buy that on Amazon as well in a large bag. So here’s a list of what I do and don’t like about this grinder set..
What I like about these grinders:
- The design is simple and lovely.
- I love that you can see the salt & pepper, I love transparency.
- It came with a simple instruction card. Again, simplicity.
- Easy packaging and timely delivery. (It’s an Amazon Prime product!)
- Easy twist to open the grinders.
- They’re half price on Amazon.
What I don’t like about these grinders:
- There’s nothing that I can find wrong with them.
Seriously, there’s nothing that I see that I don’t like about these grinders. They work perfectly, easy to grind, easy to open up. If you’re in the market for a new pair of grinders or you want to get a nice housewarming gift for someone then I recommend snatching these up.
Now it is fun fact time! Table salt is filled with additives and loses the very few nutrients it has. Rock salt is much better for you. The catch? You need a grinder. The solution? I’m literally telling you about one right now. Not only do I love rock salt, I love fresh ground pepper. So hand in hand it goes! Gooood thing you get 2 grinders, am I right?
