Pros: Looks elegant on the dining table. Works great.
Cons: The O ring looks cheap, and could be thrown away by mistake.
Before using the Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt & Pepper Grinder, I used to have store brand salt and pepper grinders on my table. They didn't match up, but did the job. So when I saw how elegant the Ozeri duo looked, I couldn't wait to use it.
It comes with a 4 pages leaflet showing you how to use the grinder.
I put it in front of me, and loved the silver, black, and the clear chambers for the salt, and pepper. It has a diagram to show the parts of the grinder. I then went onto the second page that shows you how to fill it.
I lifted off the top of the grinder, and then took out the plastic O-Ring. Please note that this needs to be kept. It does look a little cheap, and possibly part of the packaging. This is the only negative I can find with this product.
Pull off the bottom part of the grinder, the black piece, and then swivel it so it opens. This will be halfway. It then goes on top of the grinder, lining it up with the half for either salt, or pepper. You then pour the sea salt, or peppercorns, down this funnel, making sure that you do not have it between them. If this happens you will get salt and pepper in the same side. Switch sides, and then do the same on the other side, of the Duo Salt & Pepper Grinder.
Once down, the bottom comes off the top, and the top goes back on. This sounds confusing so once you see it, it is really simple to do.
So now the Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt & Pepper Grinder is ready for use. It looks so pretty with the white sea salt in one side, and the dark peppercorns in the other.
When I first tried it, both the salt and pepper, were too big. I had to make sure that the O-Ring was in, and the top was on. I then went to the bottom of the grinder, and turned the adjustment knobs clockwise, to make them smaller. I only had to adjust the salt a small amount, but the pepper had to be done several times. Now it comes out perfect.
I had some friends over, and they had never seen this grinder before. The ladies fell in love with the design. You can buy any salt and/or pepper grinders, and pay a couple of bucks for them in the supermarkets, and they work fine. If you want something special on your table, then I would tell you that it works for me.
I have had the Ozeri Duo Ultra Salt & Pepper Grinder for almost a month now, and use it most days. It still looks full.
I haven't washed it, and certainly wouldn't put it in water. Once a week I wipe it with a cloth and it shines brightly. This is the cutest table centrepiece that I have. No need for flowers, or anything fancy in my household. Just a simple, elegant product that works great for me.
It comes with a 1 year warranty, against defects in material and workmanship. Do not use wet sea salt or stone salt in it.
The retail price is $39.99, but check out amazon.com where it can be bought for $19.95.
I was sent the Duo Ultra Salt & Pepper Grinder by Ozeri for my personal use. I was under no contract, or obligation to write a review, or to write a favorable one if I chose to write one.
