Arrived faster than I expected due to Covid issues related to shipping. Sits on our oak dinning room table, looking beautiful, grinds as we need. Couldn’t ask for more
I have been searching for a good looking, well functioning pepper grinder for years. I have a lovely one from Italy but it leaks pepper on the bottom and can't be used at the table. I found these online and ordered the salt grinder as well. They are everything I had been searching for! Thank you
This item was bought as a gift. But I love the style of it.
So, I found a link to the Reluctant Trading Experiment website from a web search of "salt and pepper grinders made from wood." Though many links and images appeared instantly and seemingly out of nowhere, or everywhere I guess, the simple and sturdy lines of the Jesper Mill caught my eye. And, I might add, did the name the Reluctant Trading Experiment! What were they reluctant about, I thought - the death of the small bricks and mortar shops? if people would agree their merchandise was as lovely and sturdy as their buyers thought?
Anyway, I clicked around the website to examine the salt and pepper shaker. It was indeed made of wood - black walnut specifically - like the majestic black walnut tree outside my kitchen window. And cleverly suited to either salt and pepper, or just pepper, or just salt. The little magnet disk on the top that let's you decide which is which - brilliant - and a wise use of resources, I might add.
So, now I have the salt and pepper mills in my kitchen. We use them everyday, even when there's no company for dinner. They are indeed sturdy, but also lovely and practical and alive. I'm glad I bought the Jesper salt and pepper mills, and think the vendor need not be reluctant any longer.
We bought boys medium and a large grinder for salt and pepper. These grind well every time. There’s no constant adjustment required as in some less worthy grinders. This product works great!
