I'm very excited about my new kitchen!
We officially move, well very soon (I'm saving the surprise but trust me you will all know when)!
One of the things I'm most excited about is my brand new kitchen, we will have stainless steel appliances, beautiful black and brown granite, and beautiful flooring! I'm so excited about it! I even bought a brand new silver crock pot to match it before we even had the foundation down! I'm pretty much going for all silver/stainless steel in this kitchen and well one of the things I have always wanted is really simple but something I never splurged on before!
It's a salt and pepper grinder!
I have been using sea salt, pepper, and spice grinders for a long time but I always purchased the disposable kind find in every grocery store. I never was really in love with my kitchen, we have never had room to entertain! It will be amazing going from a stuffy one bedroom apartment to a four-bedroom two story home!
I really was excited when I was able to review this beautiful salt and pepper grinder, well basically it is two empty grinders which can be used for a variety of spices or salts! What I love about these is not only are they beautiful but their design is very convenient because it can be simply carried!
This beautiful set is 5 inches and I measured and could put 1.75 ounces of black peppercorns and this was almost filled to the top (for my family of two this will last a long time)! I also like the coarseness of the grind, I'm very particular about how I like my salt and pepper. In some recipes the grind can be coarse and that is what this grinder does, I can just use the sea salt that isn't in crystal form if I want less coarse! I really love the look of the grinder, and how easy it is to work with. I had no issues (and I'm not very strong) twisting each one, and using them!
I also had to pack them away (I wanted to save their newness) and I have a recommendation on how to do that too! They come wrapped in bubble wrap, which is great because you can use the sturdy box and bubble wrap if you happen to move! I knew I was moving, so I saved the packaging! I was so pleased with this set, that I am planning to give them away for Christmas presents, they'd be great for a wedding gift, and let's face it if you know a chef they'd love them too! The price is excellent and to be honest (I love a deal) this is a steal! I have been researching these for months and found them in every price range but this one really gives you a good quality set for a great price! Just look at how beautiful it is!
I can't wait to pull this out at our first dinner party! I will proudly have these in the kitchen, on the breakfast nook table, and I might purchase another set for the dinning room!
