Good deal

I have been looking for these for some time and was so glad to see them online. I hope that in the future there will be a salt grinder that comes in a set.

Amazing set .. Very beautiful

Looking at the high prices for a decent pepper mill I was wary about the quality of this product. But when I opened the box, I was surprised to see that this set is not only beautiful but also feels good and sturdy in the hands. Grinding pepper is no rocket science and the set does what it's supposed to do. I did not want to have a different salt shaker on my table and hence the shaker completes my dining table. One minor gripe though - I haven't been able to get a 'coarse' consistency while grinding with this mill yet, but I am very happy otherwise.

This is exactly what I wanted/expected.

The pepper mill works great. The salt shaker I can take or leave. There is not very much salt that comes out of 4 small holes.

Well built

These seem very well built. I like the way the look and I also like the adjustablity of the pepper grinder. These are a very good buy, I highly recommend them.

These look good in my new kitchen. Overall good value.

Just the right size and perfect color. No problem using the peppermill.

Works good

I brought this for my mum on Thanksgiving. This works excellent.

Beautiful & Classy

This salt shaker & peppermill set is wonderful. It is absolutely gorgeous & works great. Really a beautiful addition to my cooking counter!

Not the right color and had stains!!

I picked up the shakers and they had white stained rings on them. Also, the description online was that the color was black...NOT SO. They were dark brown. I returned them and reordered them. The new ones arrived and they were a medium brown and had the same stains. Buyer beware!!

I am satisfied with the quality of this product for the price.

So far so good

I had another S/P set for several years, that was a lot more expensive. The plunger on the salt shaker ended up falling out all of the time though and getting piles of salt everywhere. The one on this set holds much more solidly and the set is nice. The grinder works well too.


quality product but at a price

I bought this product a year back, and have been using it regularly without any problem.\nThere is not much to say about a salt shaker for their functioning. They solve their purpose which is pretty simple. However, the good thing about it is the material used, the finish and the size. these seemed to be made of solid wood and have been very durable. Have a good presence on the table and are pretty comfortable to hold. The pepper mill has still held up very well, with no problems with the milling mechanism or the screws. I would definitely recommend it for the looks and the ergonomics, but $15 is a bit on the higher side for a salt shaker and a pepper mill (though I try justifying it to myself with the quality).

good value

The only issue I have is how much they hold. But they are still a great product, and are as they are described. I love em.

Meets expectations

Looks just like the picture. It was everything I expected it to be.

Fantastic set for home!

I have been looking for some time for a good and affordable S & P grinder set. After really looking I got this one and I love it!!! The color is a nice rich brown, the grinder works beautifully and the salt does not pour out, it shakes perfectly! I highly recommend this product!

Yep. It's a keeper!

I was well pleased when I opened the box. The quality seems to be very high considering the price I paid. I'm no Iron Chef and I don't think I should have to pay $100 or more for a pepper mill. For everyday household use, this one should be just fine. And they look good too! I think I'm going to like the "expresso" color much better than the clear plastic I've had before. (And yes, I happen to know that expresso is not the same as black.) Would buy again. Would recommend to a friend. Heck, I might buy a couple more for gifts.

Salt n Pepper

I have had a set of S&P shakers on my table for years that were Oak. But not very finely made.\nI was very suprised by the quality of this product. The finish and materials are far superior to my old set.

Not a Vic Firth, but plenty good enough

Ideally speaking each kitchen would be given the grandiose Vic Firth pepper grinder for free. However, seeing as we do not live in an ideal world, I have found this set to do just the job for me. I was looking for a permanent pepper grinder but didn't necessarily feel the need for a salt grinder. This set comes with a lifetime limited warranty which is great and by all appearances these could have been purchased at a fancy department store. They look great on the table, the grinder is adjustable and has done a great job so far. My one complaint is the top nut has the tendancy to unscrew it self as I am grinding which make the grind a little coarser. Overall, I am very pleased with this product and would definitely reccoment it to anyone who has problems with the Vic Firth price but wants a good grinder. Look no farther!


I just got these, and they are great. They work great and look wonderful on my table. I saw where someone else gave a negative review on here stating that online the color was stated to be black. I don't see that anywhere. It says the color is espresso, which is a dark brown (like espresso coffee) not black. This is a great set, definitely worth the money.
