Battery Powered Stainless Steel Salt and PepperMills
I got this set 2 weeks ago, have used them for about a week and a half. Unfourtunatly(sp) after about 20 uses one of the mills just quit, new batteries did not help. Am very sorry I wasted 40 plus s/h on this. Buyer beware.
I brought these to replace a broken set from another manufacturer. Great product for home use.
Nice with a few exceptions
After reading the other reviews, decided to add my 2cents. I've had them for over a year (purchased elsewhere) and have never had a problem. They work great for intended purposes. The only exceptions for me would be the size. They are taller than they look pictured and a little on the heavy side. Probably the largest salt and pepper mills I've ever owned. Oh, and if your not careful reassembling after filling, the bottom half can fall into your food (but that's more my DH's issue). That being said, they work really well. I love that you can use one-handed and that the grind is adjustable. But my favorite feature is the light! Who knew it could be so helpful, but it really makes a difference. Also, I think I've only changed the batteries once, which is pretty good since they're used several times a day. Bottom line; if this is what your looking for, I would recommend.
sorry! never worked for me
It seem the pepper one was always right on, but the salt never seem to work right and I was not using any salt or using way to much. The life of the batteries were short and spending money for new batteries is something I hate to do. I had to send back.
I ordered this set of grinders as a present for my sister who had a stroke and has use of only one hand presently. She wanted to use pepper on her food and was unable to use a regular grinder since it requires the use of both hands. She can use this set with no assistance and she is much happier. I also use them when I am cooking food. I will be ordering additional sets for gifts and use with other spices.
Serves the purpose
Bought these as a replacement for my original set.These look cheaply made,not nearly as nice looking sitting on my counter but they serve the purpose. They get used daily ,hope they hold up but a bit skeptical....
I have had these for about 6 months. They work beautifully. You will love having a light when you grind your pepper into a pot. It is important to be able to add salt and pepper to your pot using only one hand! Great price!
I got these at a local store about 5 years ago and love them. I am so excited to see them here at Qvc. I use these everyday they sit right next to the cooktop within easy reach. They disassemble by a slight twist and a lift up, they separate at the top of the clear section, then you have to give a slight twist to the battery pack section and lift up then you can see where there is an opening around the very center of clear part to pour in your spice, the batteries are also easy to replace they are immediately available when you lift the stainless top part off in the center, Reassembly is simple but there is one thing to remember - there are two little prongs on the battery pack part once separated from the clear cylinder and two little holes in the top of the clear section you must get the prongs pressed into the holes on the clear part in order for the battery to work, and you don't want to break them off by not paying attention to how you have it lined up to reassemble. I always wipe any salt or residue off the holes before reassembling after a battery change or a refill. The battery life is fairly long I usually replace batteries about every 3 months. My set has a light that comes one when you press the button on top to dispense the spice/salt that lights up your food so you can see how much you are putting on your food in case it is low lighting. They clean up well being stainless, the salt dispenser will shed salt onto the counter as it sits waiting for the next use so you might want a coaster under it, I have granite and just let it sit and shed I just wipe the salt off the countertop when I pick it up to use, but I highly recommend these they are easy to use and helps to keep one from not overdoing with the salt. I use the multi-colored peppercorns in the other and it makes a wonderful addition to dishes to have it fresh. There is no adjustment to the size of the grind but I find the size to be fine as it is. You can't go wrong with this set. I hesitated in the local store to buy these due to the price but I am so glad I jumped in and spent the money, I would not be without these. Get these!!
