Review: This item was not at all what I expected.  I thought the salt and pepper would be part of the product and that it would be sturdier.  The salt and pepper were not included and there were no instructions so it took me a while to get the grinders apart so I could wash and dry them thoroughly.

Once I took them apart I saw there was an adjustable knob to select the coarseness under the cover but it wasn’t marked properly to see where to line it up to get coarse, medium-fine or ultra-fine grind so I had to move it and check for coarseness by trial and error which won’t be easy to use if family members want different grinds and it also wouldn’t be sanitary if everyone is touching the part that does the grinding.  The grinder piece is plastic so it can easily break off.  It worked well on the peppercorns but not on the coarse salt which almost became sticky.

The set has a nice look since it’s glass and stainless steel.  You can see the salt, pepper or other spice through the glass.  The company’s name is on the part that is twisted to grind and doesn’t fit in with the look of the product.  There’s also a cover that needs to be removed each time you use the grinder.  It came packaged well with the two grinders wrapped in bubble wrap and placed in a sturdy cardboard container which was then put in the Amazon box for shipment.  The price is $14.99 which is reasonable if the item worked properly.

Given the trouble I had figuring out how to use the grinders and not being able to grind the salt I would not recommend this product.
