A beautifully designed salt/pepper grinder. It has a have a high quality feel to it and grinds, in my case pepper, effortlessly. The thumb press works well and it sits well in your hand as you are using it. It's small enough that if you were off on a picnic, it would be ideal to take along, without being bulky and taking up to much space like the plastic ones you pick up in the supermarket. Does the job it was made for very well but has the added advantage of looking very stylish sitting out on the kitchen counter.
