Tabletop

Rubik’s Cruet Salt and Pepper Mills

Whether you’ve solved ‘the cube’ or not, you might get a kick out of these salt and pepper mills.

These salt and pepper mills are the ultimate tabletop tribute to the 80’s icon. Each cube is built around a high-quality ceramic grinding mill. The top layer of the cube rotates to operate the mill. The action of grinding the pepper or salt has the same feel and sound as the classic cube puzzle.

2.25″ square.

Available as a pair ($34.00) or individually ($17.00).
