Salt and Pepper Grinders

earlier this year i had to buy new s & p grinders.

and i brought what i call the "bunnies" clear acrylic balls with black hands you squeeze to grind your s & P.

my salt one literally collapsed and broke about a month ago, and my pepper one has just disintegrated today, maybe i was too heavy handed in my squeezing technique????

I really want new ones now. I have heard ceramic blades are better that stainless steel, do you agree?

can you recemmend a good salt and pepper grinder. Please point me in the right direction, am currently using a pestle and mortar as i don't have fine grind pepper or salt in my cupboards.

Sammy,

I've bought so many over the years. Expensive Cole and Mason ones which were, quite frankly, pointless to cheapy that have done the job for six months and then need replacing.

I now use the Schwartz ceramic grinders that are refillable from the dried herbs and spices section. About £4.50 each.

You use and refill and they last about three years and then you buy another one.

S&P grinders

I, too, like many others I am sure, have bought many grinders over the years and at last I have found a good make which I have now had in use for at least 3 years and it is still performing well! The grinders are made by Peugot, yes the same make as the cars! I bought them after reading about them on an American web-site, they are quite expensive , about £35- £40 each, but you get what you pay for in this instance. I never found the salt grinders worked in the other brands I have used but this one does!

I think my Mum has the same. Anthony Worrall Thompson by Russell Hobbs these are branded as.

Totally useless, top heavy and a complete waste of money.

A regretted purchase.

pepper grinders

I've had a few and they were all rubbish. Did bit of searching on the internet and after reading all the good reviews about Peugeot grinders decided to buy one. It's the best one I've ever had. Well worth the money.

S&P grinders

Nice to know someone agrees with me! For your information L & J, Peugot grinders are not electrically operated, ie. with batteries, but have a stainless steel grinding system which is guaranteed for life!

I have had many over the years, then threw caution to the winds and purchased the Peugot ones. Sure they are a bit expensive, but well worth it in my opinion.

Ceramic certainly better for salt mills as the salt doesn't corrode it.

Haven't used ceramic for pepper so can't comment. Still using my ancient metal bladed pepper grinder one bought about 25 years ago.

I have the Peugeot ones too, had them for years and they have been fine.

salt and pepper

I have a georgeous scarlet 25cm high pergeot pepper one in France but I think it is suffering a bit from living on its own for months in an unheated house.
In the Uk I have one of these

which is attractive and has served me well.
I also had one of those acrylic bunny ones. It worked fine but again succumbed to cold damp conditions of the kitchen of my previous house.

S&P grinders

We bought some fairly expensive Cole and Mason ones last year with stainless steel blades but I'm not happy with them - the pepper grinds too coarsly and the salt makes a horrible cringe inducing squeaking noise when you grind. They have a lifetime guarantee but I'm not sure what they are guaranteeing against.
Wouldn't buy them again and tempted to look into these peugeot ones when I'm ready to replace them - thanks for the tip.

S and P grinders

We've had a set of Marco Pierre White electric grinders by Russell Hobbs for around 4 years ad they've been fine so far. I think they were £20 from Argos.

OXO GRINDERS


I have had the Oxo Good Grips salt and pepper grinders for a long time now and they certainly are the best I have had to date, and I've had lots. They are quite expensive, got them from Lakeland, but worth the money.
