Salt Pepper

Pepper Salt Stones

Modern tabletop accessories can often fall into the angular camp. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, it’s just that sometimes it’s nice to have more rounded, organic shapes to offset all the sharp corners we deal with on a daily basis. These stone-shaped salt and pepper holders look like real stones found at the waterside and one could assume their smooth surface would be nice to hold/use.

Plus One Salt Cellar

This Plus One Salt Cellar by Muuto is a good match to the Plus Spice Mill just as intended. Stone and wood are lasting materials that fit into a variety of kitchen styles so it’s no surprise that the adjective ‘timeless’ is bandied about; it’s a no-brainer (if you need a salt cellar).

Avva S+P Shakers

This salt & pepper set has embedded neodymium magnets to help keep the two pieces paired together as one. That’s a small detail that makes a big difference if you’re always losing one or the other in the cabinet or on the table. It would also simplify passing the salt and pepper around the table when your family or guests prefer to season their own meal (chefs: cue audible gasp).

Jesus Salt/Pepper Grinder

If you’re a devout follower of Jesus of Nazareth, just think of how much better your life will be with this salt and pepper grinder.
