The Story

A timely, shorter design for fresh-ground sea salt. The stature (see additional photos) of this sleek stainless mill doesn't affect its commercial-quality performance, and makes it great for moveable feasts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and thin I got these for my wedding and they work great. They are easy to use and have a contemporary look. The only thing is the lever can be a little hard to push at times.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought these just before Christmas this past year and I have eventually come to the conclusion that I don't like them. I wish I could still return them. They are difficult to operate, especially the salt one. It gets kind of jammed up which makes it very difficult to push the button down. They are also top heavy and the are constantly being knocked over with a crash at the dinner table. They are very lovely to look at and I love the concept of them but I am bummed that I spent $50 for the pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing!! I registered for the salt and pepper shaker set back in 2012 and I’m quite upset about the quality of the salt mill. When we registered for the item all of the reviews were positive and I felt that the $30 price per piece was justifiable but that’s not true anymore! A gap between the “metal” base and compartment where the salt gets stored has developed – right now there is no need to actually press down on the mill part because salt is just pouring out the side. See photo! My husband and I cook often and thought we can trust the “commercial-quality performance” but the salt mill just isn’t cutting it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice at first I was so excited to buy these things from our wedding registry. They were just what I was looking for, or so I thought. After having these for over a year, I found that the salt mill was not working properly. When I opened the mill, I had found that the mechanism inside had started to rust. At no time were these items improperly stored in a heavily moist environment, but rather sat on our kitchen table for normal use. So much for what I thought was a quality product at a somewhat expensive price. It has taken almost a year for this review to be posted and will have to look elsewhere for replacement items since the 90 day return policy is over conveniently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great & Works Well Very well made.  We are very happy with these mini salt and pepper mills.Some reviewers have said that it's difficult to press with thumb and feels like it 'sticks'.  I experienced that until I refilled salt mill with Mortons course sea salt.  The salt crystals are smaller than the salt crystals that were in the mill when purchased.  I think the less course the salt crystals, the easier it is to press and grind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Long Time User Bought this shaker about 8 years ago, has served us so well I came back after it finally broke to see if C&B still had it for a replacement. Easy to use for my three kids, In humid weather salt will collect on sides, but continues working. I just hope the manufacturer didn't cut corners over the years so I can get another 8+ out of my replacement, may buy two. ;)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good I don't know why so many rave reviews, maybe I got a lemon. It grinds so very poorly I end up just opening it and pouring coarse salt. I lost my receipt so I got stuck with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fancy & fun! Bought these S&P mills - a set for a gift and one for ourselves. Everybody loves them! They have a clean & modern look. Are easy to refill but have found that if you don't press the dispenser all the all the way down sometime it is difficult to press it the next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great look fab, clean, modern look. small enough for daily use of salt/pepper. my only complaint is that i've noticed the pepper does not smoothly click for grinding, it's somewhat, well, "grindy". o/w i love them, would def recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best !!! i am a machinist and am very fussy about anything made out of metal. these are very well made. there are similar ones( that i never bought ) for a lot less money but i doubt they can come close to the quality of this mill.everything about it is perfect. grinding pepper might seem easy but it requires a very well made mill to do it efficiently and reliably. most pepper mills are garbage. this is the rare exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from big punch in a small compartment These salt and pepper mills have a lot of oomph packed into a small space. They are heavier than they look, but still very manageable. My husband and I love that we can get freshly-ground pepper without having to use a large cumbersome mill.Some reviewers have commented that the pepper mill can get stuck; ours has stuck a couple of times, but a quick shake is usually enough to get it going again.A word of caution about the salt mill: be sure to use a coarse grain of salt. I filled it with a finer kosher salt grain by accident, and it leaked salt out of the grinder without any plunging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Love these!!! They are small so they look great sitting anywhere, stove top, table top, etc. Love that you only need one hand to operate them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fancy & Useful These are awesome for the kitchen table and for cooking. One click and you have salt or pepper on your food. They look great and work great so far too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome - but test them in the store first! We received these as a wedding gift and love them. It's great that you don't have to twist them like other salt and pepper mills. The first ones we received had some major scratches from C & B online and the salt grinder didn't work well. I took them into the store and exchanged them. Following the other reviewers' advice, I tried out the ones in the store (much to the employee's hesitation), to see which ones worked the best. I have to admit that several of them I tried didn't seem to work at all. But, after a small salt-and-peppery-mess was created on the floor , I managed to find two that function very well and that we use all the time. They take up virtually no counter space and we get tons of compliments on them. We plan to get a set for my husband's parents. BOTTOM LINE: If you get these...test them out in the store first to make sure they work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mills Ever. We love our mini salt/pepper mills! Though they are "mini," we've had ours nearly 2 years and only had to fill them 4 or 5 times.Everyone who comes over loves them (as soon as they figure out how to work them), and a few friends have gone out and bought them based on their experiences at our house.I love being able to freshly grind salt and pepper with one hand rather than spinning and turning a large pepper mill, which is always awkward at the table.We received the silver set for our wedding and bought a red set 2 months later during the after-Christmas sale. Our kitchen has red accents, so they go perfectly.You have to love fresh, whole tasting salt and pepper flakes on/in your food to love these mills. I do, and I've been spoiled. I can no longer use pre-ground pepper at a restaurant or if we're eating at a friend's house. The powder just doesn't taste right after this experience.Yum!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not smoothe operation Salt mill in this set works great, pepper mill is not that good. Grind is not smoothe and size of ground pepper, not fit for all dishes. They look very nice, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice.....but small! I bought both the salt and pepper grinders.They are very cute and they work okay (so far)My only complaint would be that they are smaller than I expected. I will keep them though because I can't find any other ones that "wow" me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great... The pepper mill is a great hand held item. It's wonderful to be able to mill fresh pepper with one hand while you are cooking or even sitting down for a meal. You can even take it with you for on the go purposes because of its compact size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MIni Salt/Pepper Mills I was so happy to find the salt and pepper mills and thought that they'd make great stocking stuffers for our four grown children. What a disappointment they were! Not one of them worked easily, especially the salt mills. It was almost impossible to push the plungers to grind the salt. I had wanted something fun, sleek, and useful, but wound up returning all of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I seen these grinders on a show on the Bravo channel and had to have them. The are very sleek looking and work great. I bought a set for myself and then purchased 3 more sets for gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute The salt and pepper mills are so cute and very handy. With the salt mill, you must be careful that the salt is very hard or it will not grind properly.
Date published: 2009-11-25
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very cute, but not functional If all you are going to do is look at the salt and pepper grinders, buy them. But, if you have anyone with weak thumbs, they won't be able to get the salt grinder to work and will have difficulty with the pepper grinder. I really wanted them to work because they look so cute on the table. But, I eventually gave up and returned them. We need a battery operated version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great pepper mill!!! My wife follows Crate and Barrel products very closely, so I was not surprised that on one of her bi-weekly visits she picked up the Mini Pepper Mill. I liked it because it has a nice heavy, mechanical feel to it AND it does a great job of grinding pepper. It really does grind well with just one hand, but you can create a blizzard of pepper if you use it with two hands. Way to go, C&B, another product that looks great and works well !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sea salt grinder! We saw these clever grinders when visiting with some out-of-state friends recently. As soon as we returned from that trip, I ordered a pair of the salt grinders.While traditional pepper mills do usually require two hands, I have a pair of mills that have been carefully calibrated to give either fine or coarse pepper, in copious quantities. I did not want to stop using them.Salt, however, is another matter. When cooking, being able to "squirt" some freshly-ground sea salt into my cooking is a wonderful convenience. I bought a second grinder to stay on our outdoor table - we live in Florida and the humidity makes salt shakers useless, but not grinders. And, since we eat 90% of our meals outside, having such a clever grinder is a great boon.I also am quite impressed at the heft and construction of these solid stainless steel appliances.As to the "thumb power" required to operate the grinders, think of it as a little strength-training for your most important digit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Falls apart - very poor product We are about to return our second pair of these. The first time the connection between the clear plastic and metal broke apart. This time the button/grinder assembly broke apart. These are poorly constructed and not recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One-Handed Precision Spice Delivery Instruments I don't cook... much. My wife does. She spends a lot of time shopping for the latest cooking "stuff". I usually follow her around looking politely interested. During one of these excursions, I spotted the Mini Salt/Pepper Mills. I like the look of stainless so I picked them up. They look cool. Kind of like a cross between a flashlight and a rocket ship. They're beefy too. Real man shakers. Precision instruments. The little windows show whether it's a pepper or a salt shaker. No "Ps" or "Ss" required. Best of all, they solve a problem I've been wrestling with during the few times when I must cook for myself... most pepper or salt mills require two hands to operate. Trust me, I can't afford to have both hands occupied with one task when I'm trying to cook. These little gems operate with one hand! Pressing the little plunger at the top of the shaker releases a shower of pepper or salt beneath. They do take a little hand-strength to operate but, hey, that just means my wife is likely to leave them to me!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty to look at These salt/pepper mills are really beautiful, but not the easiest to use. When you're cooking and need to poor salt or pepper quickly, it's kind of frustrating having to use these. Also, they sometimes get stuck and you need to play around with them to get them to work. They are nice to put on the table at dinner, but not for cooking.
