Inspired by the old fortress of Hammershus on the Danish island of Bornholm, the design of these salt & pepper grinders displays the simplicity and functionality characteristic of Scandinavian design. Made from solid white oak, the wood is left unfinished for a natural feeling. The CrushGrind® brand ceramic grinding mechanism is the industry benchmark. Unlike metallic grinding mechanisms which can be corroded by salt, the ceramic grinder is appropriate for both salt and pepper. To refill, simply twist off the top. The size makes it suitable for both kitchen and tabletop use--not too big, not too small.
